Over Inflated Tires
Tires are one of the most important safety features of your car. As the only part of the vehicle that comes in direct contact with the road, they are crucial to its drivability. When properly inflated, tires will ensure that your car is running smoothly and efficiently. Poorly maintained tires, however, will negatively affect the stability of your vehicle, cornering, and your ability to brake effectively. Think about it, if a tire’s pressure is too high, not enough of its surface will come in contact with the road.
More specifically, an over inflated tire will start to bulge in the center of its tread, causing your car to feel bouncy. You might also experience a noticeable decrease in traction and stopping distances. If left unfixed, the tread in the center the tire will completely wear away while the outer edges remain normal. Cars with built in Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems will alert you if your tires are over inflated, otherwise, don’t hesitate to bring your car in–one of Lake Norman’s expert technicians would be happy to take a look at them!
