Importance of Tire Pressure – Tires Saskatoon

Safety & Savings


  • Low air pressure causes erratic and uneven wear and is the number one cause of tire failures.
  • A properly inflated tire will extend tire casing life, resulting in less overheating and fewer blowouts.
  • Low tire pressures increase required braking distance and dramatically affects steering and handling.


  • Tires that run 10% under-inflated lose up to 16% of their tread life, resulting in tires wearing out sooner than they should.
  • Tires that run under-inflated by 30% lose up to 10% in fuel economy, resulting in more frequent trips to the gas station.
  • The average downtime on the highway due to a flat tire is 3-4 hours.
