Summer Heat and Your Car's Tire Pressure: Why It Matters

As the summer sun beats down, it's not just you feeling the heat – your car is, too! Tire pressure is a critical but often overlooked aspect of car maintenance during the summer months. Why does it matter so much, and how can Bret's Autoworks help keep you rolling smoothly?

Why Tire Pressure Matters

Tire pressure is crucial for several reasons, especially in hot weather:

1. **Safety First**: Properly inflated tires ensure better traction and handling, reducing the risk of accidents, particularly on hot, dry roads.
2. **Fuel Efficiency**: Underinflated tires increase rolling resistance, meaning your car needs to work harder and burn more fuel – not ideal during summer road trips.

3. **Tire Longevity**: Correct pressure helps tires wear evenly, extending their lifespan and saving you money in the long run.

Summer Heat and Tire Pressure

Hot temperatures can cause tire pressure to fluctuate more than usual. As the mercury rises, air expands inside your tires, potentially leading to overinflation. Conversely, if you're driving on underinflated tires, the heat can exacerbate the problem, increasing the risk of blowouts or tire damage.
