The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has warned it's not uncommon to find cars on the road that are running with one or more tires either over-inflated or under-inflated. When tires are not kept at the recommended pressure, it can lead to rapid wear and blowouts, which cause accidents.

According to the NHTSA, 738 people were killed by tire-related car accidents in 2017 and only 19% of consumers properly inflate their tires.

The NHTSA recommends checking tire pressure monthly, not ignoring tire pressure warnings from your vehicle and to regularly rotate tires to protect their tread.
