When tires are not properly maintained with regular rotations and correct tire pressure you will notice a change in vehicle performance. Tire pressure affects gas mileage; too low and you will notice a dip in fuel economy. Keeping correct tire pressure also prevents tire damage which could lead to rupture at high speeds while driving. Over inflated tires are more likely to puncture if you hit an object, curb or pothole. Tire pressure also effects tread wear which can cause difficult handling  while driving.
