Ways to Save Series 4: Save $300-$500 a year

Here are my measurements 32 32 36 36

You're probably thinking what's up with the 4th measurement?  Fortunately, I will not be divulging my body measurements here.  These are the recommended tire pressure measurements for my car. 
Do you know yours? 
I'm a BzzAgent and I'm working on the Michelin Tires BzzCampaign and I tied this BzzCampaign with my Ways to Save series.  Here you'll learn how to save yourself $300-$500 per year and also if you are in need of some new treads then we have a $70 rebate form, read on....

FACT: A majority of cars on U.S. roads are operating on tires inflated to only 80 percent of capacity.

FACT: Poorly Inflated Tires Increase Fuel Costs and Emissions. 

FACT: The average person who drives 12,000 miles yearly on under-inflated tires uses about 144 extra gallons of gas, at a cost of $300-$500 a year.

FACT: Any vehicle running on soft tires is contributing as much as 1.5 extra tons (2,880 pounds) of greenhouse.

FACT: Fully inflated tires are safer and less likely to fail at high speeds

So what shall we do:
  • Check Tire Pressure Monthly and When Tires are Cold
  • The correct air pressure for tires that come with new vehicles can be found either in the owner’s manual or inside the driver-side door. Beware, though, that replacement tires may carry a different PSI rating than the originals that came with the car. Most new replacement tires display their PSI rating on their sidewalls.
  • Tires must be replaced when the tread is worn down to 2/32 of an inch

Check out the Michelin Tires Bzz Campaign to learn more about Tire Safety and also win yourself some great prizes by participating in the fun activities.

Thanks for the info, this is something that I don't usually think about. I didn't realize that it would make that much of a difference. Merry Christmas :).
