Dodge Charger: Tires — General Information / Tire Pressure

Dodge Charger 2011-2022 Owner's Manual / SERVICING AND MAINTENANCE / TIRES / Tires — General Information / Tire Pressure

Proper tire inflation pressure is essential to the safe and satisfactory operation of your vehicle. Four primary areas are affected by improper tire pressure:

  • Safety
  • Fuel Economy
  • Tread Wear
  • Ride Comfort and Vehicle Stability

Safety

WARNING!

  • Improperly inflated tires are dangerous and can cause collisions.
  • Underinflation increases tire flexing and can result in overheating and tire failure.
  • Overinflation reduces a tire's ability to cushion shock. Objects on the road and chuckholes can cause damage that result in tire failure.
  • Overinflated or underinflated tires can affect vehicle handling and can fail suddenly, resulting in loss of vehicle control.
  • Unequal tire pressures can cause steering problems. You could lose control of your vehicle.
  • Unequal tire pressures from one side of the vehicle to the other can cause the vehicle to drift to the right or left.
  • Always drive with each tire inflated to the recommended cold tire inflation pressure.

Both underinflation and overinflation affect the stability of the vehicle and can produce a feeling of sluggish response or over responsiveness in the steering.

NOTE:

  • Unequal tire pressures from side to side may cause erratic and unpredictable steering response.
  • Unequal tire pressure from side to side may cause the vehicle to drift left or right.

Fuel Economy

Underinflated tires will increase tire rolling resistance resulting in higher fuel consumption.

Tread Wear

Improper cold tire inflation pressures can cause abnormal wear patterns and reduced tread life, resulting in the need for earlier tire replacement.

Ride Comfort And Vehicle Stability

Proper tire inflation contributes to a comfortable ride. Overinflation produces a jarring and uncomfortable ride.
