- 660 fatalities and 33,000 injuries occur every year as a result of a crash due to under-inflated tires. / NHTSA
- Tires lose pressure each day through the process of permeation. In cool weather, a tire will typically lose one or two pounds of air per month. In warm weather, it’s common for tires to lose air at an even higher rate. / DiscountTire.com
- Improper inflation is the main cause of premature tread loss and sudden tire failure, according to tire industry experts. / NHTSA
- An overinflated tire rides on just the center portion of the tread. The smaller contact area means reduced grip on the road — leading to a harsh ride, handling issues, and increased wear on tires and suspension components. / Transport Canada
- Over Inflation causes excessive wear at the center of the tread. With under inflation, there is too much road contact with the outer treads, which wear prematurely. / ProCarCare.com
