As long as your tires have air in them, they're good, right? Not necessarily so. It's not only important to have air in your tires, you should also make sure you have the right amount of air pressure and that you have your tires regularly inspected and maintained to improve their life and lower your risk of being involved in an accident and the financial fallout that usually follows.
A flat tire is most certainly an inconvenience and one of the quickest ways to wind up on the side of the road. That being said, you also want to make sure your tires aren't overinflated. If they are, you run the risk of prematurely wearing down your tire's center tread. What's more, over-inflated tires can lead to tire stress and the possibility that you'll have a blowout.
