MS 4751 WC Product Description
- Driving with correctly inflated tires is important for several reasons: Increases safety
- Reduces tread wear
- Accutire MS 4751 WC Improves handling and ride performance
- Maintains better fuel economy
While most drivers know this, several however don’t adopt preventive action by on a regular basis checking their tire pressure. Reported to a survey by the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA), 27% of the passenger cars and 33 % of the light trucks (including SUVs, vans and pickups) on the Americas routes have at least one considerably under-inflated tire.
Under-inflation of tires increments the likeliness of several different types of crashes, including those involving:
- skidding and/or loss of control of the vehicle
- increases in stopping distance
- flat tires and blow-outs
- overloading of the vehicle
For the small amount of time that it takes, checking tire inflation at least once a month comprises one of the most effective investments you will be able to make to acquire the maximum life out of your tires. Appropriate inflation can as well improve gas mileage by more than 3% when kept up regularly. Just think about it: Under-inflated tires can lower gas mileage by 0.4 % for every 1 PSI (pounds per square inch) drop in pressure of all 4 tires. You may want to check your tires more often during the wintertime. Tires will lose about 1 PSI of pressure for every 10 º Fahrenheit of temperature drop.
Maintain an accurate tire pressure gauge in your car’s glove box ( at “air stations” many gauges give false pressure readings) and check the tire pressure when the tires are cold. Never rely the visual aspect of a tire as a gauge for inflation. A tire could be 10 PSI low on pressure and not appear to be low on air. Use the recommended inflation pressure listed in your vehicle’s owner’s manual or on the inflation sticker found on the driver’s door jamb. While you’re at it, don’t forget to check the spare. There’s nothing more disagreeable than a flat spare when you have a flat tire.
Tire pressure checking is an important auto safety check that everyone should do frequently. Use the Accutire MS 4751 WC to get quick, accurate readings.
