Keep Your Tires at the Correct Pressure

Did you know that by making sure that your tires are properly inflated and have enough tread, you can actually increase your fuel economy? This is because when they are under- or over-inflated or have little to no tread, the car has to work harder to start and stop, thus using more fuel. That is why we here at Courtesy Ford Lincoln in Altoona want to be sure you know how to properly inflate your tire and check its tread level.

Most gas stations have air compressors that you can inflate your tires with for just a few quarters. Be sure to reference your owners manual for the proper PSI level to inflate them to. To check the tread of your tires, a good rule of thumb is that it should cover the head of Lincoln on a penny if you put one in the tread of your tires.
