No matter what quality tire you use, if your tires
are used under-inflated and then brought up to full
inflation, only a comparatively short time will elapse
until your casings break inside; while the same tire,
if kept to within three to five pounds of the required
pressure will run thousands of miles farther. Also, it
takes less gas to propel a car with properly inflated
tires. -p . .- . . , ' '
