It’s important to keep your tires sufficiently inflated, both for the sake of the tires themselves, and in order to maximize the performance and fuel economy of your vehicle. The problem is that for many of us, we only think to check our tire pressure when heading out on a long road trip – if even then. With Goodyear’s Air Maintenance Technology (AMT), however, that shouldn’t matter. The system, which is currently in development, would automatically keep tires topped up to the proper pressure.
