Tire inflation maintenance is essential in prolonging not only tire life but also overall performance and efficiency. If properly inflated, one can expect a better steering response and a smoother movement. Meanwhile, overinflation and even underinflation can lead to premature wear and tear, especially on the tire's tread. In the worst-case scenario, tire failure is inevitable. The best way to have the best tire pressure is having a tire pressure gauge
and tread depth gauge
. There are three options to choose from - stick, digital, and dial. The latter uses an analog dial. It has a simple needle attached to its body for pressure measurement. Digital has an LCD, which is very handy, especially during low-light conditions. Lastly, stick-type gauges. They have a ballpen design and have a straightforward application. However, they can be more challenging to read.
