Essential For Your Safety
The way your car handles on the highway, winding back roads, and even city driving – including breaking distance is drastically compromised with incorrect tire pressure.
It’s vital to make sure that you’re tires are not over OR under inflated.
It may sound like “common sense,” since the air in your tires is what actually carries the weight of your car.
But it’s far more critical than most people understand.
Proper, accurate inflation gives your tires the structural integrity you need to carry you and your loved ones safely from point A to B.
Here’s How it Works
Under-inflation puts too much pressure on the tire’s sidewalls. You can tell when a tire is underinflated, because it looks like it’s bulging outward.
This is a big problem, because under-inflation TRIPLES the chances of a blowout – but it can also cause longer term tire damage, creating weak spots that could fail later even after the tires are back at the right pressure. Tire wear will increase, along with fuel consumption, because it takes more energy for your car to roll an under-inflated tire down the road.
Over-inflated tires are trouble, too. The can cause blowouts on long drives – especially in extremely hot temperatures. They also impair handling because over-inflation means less of the tire’s surface is in contact with the road than the manufacturer intended.
You should never exceed the upper pressure limit specified on the tire.
Making certain your tires are properly inflated is critical
According to statistics from the National Highway Transportation Safety Agency, a tire 25% below its recommended pressure is THREE times as likely to be involved in a crash, while a tire 25% above it’s recommended pressure is twice as likely to be involved in a crash.
As the summer driving season begins, taking just two minutes to check your tire pressure can offer peace of mind for your safety, and save you time and money.
It’s Fast and Simple with Added Bonuses for Convenience and Versatility
That’s why we’ve created the Digital Tire Inflator. It 12 V adapter lets you plug it right into your car (8′ 8″ cord), and since it features a digital LED pressure gauge, you can check the tire pressure of your car (2′ 2″ cord) in an instant, so you’ll know if you’re in danger.
If your tires are low, you can fully inflate them in a matter of seconds with the push of a button.
We created this Tire Inflatore to be much more than “just a tire inflator.”
So as an added bonus, it comes with 3 different nozzles so you can pump up inflatable toys, sports equipment, bike tires and car and RV tires.
The bonus attachement nozzles make it fast and easy to add air to almost anything you can think of – you’re always covered with the Digital Tire Inflator from Parker Eight.
