Tire Pressure 101 – Will Improperly Inflated Tires Void Your Warranty?

by Robert Green on September 15, 2013


Air pressure is the key to pro-longed tire life and also the number one reason for tire failure.  Keeping your tires at the correct air pressure will not only give you the best results for tire life, but also optimize fuel economy.  By not maintaining proper tire inflation, your tire is generating additional heat if under inflated or over inflated wearing your tire out faster leading to premature tire failure. Tire failure may include: sidewall failure, uneven tread wear, and run-flat tires.

One of the biggest downfalls to tires that are not properly maintained is a voided warranty. Not all tires include a tread life warranty, so remember to ask about it the next time you’re shopping for new summer, winter or all-season tires. To ensure your tires are properly inflated, check your tire pressure on a regular basis or have one of our Fountain Tire Technicians do this for you. The amount of air your tire needs is determined by many varying factors, but the simplest way is to check your owners manual or the crevice of your vehicle door.
