What if my tire pressure is too high?

If your tire pressure is too high, your tires are over inflated and have less contact with the road. This gives you less grip, traction and power, and increases your effective stopping distance. Over-inflation also increases tire wear in the center portion of the tread and exposes your tires to damage from objects on the road and potholes. Your ride won’t be nearly as comfortable either, because your tires will be “bouncing” on the road.
