In early ownership, you learn what solid, reliable tires feel like when they’re functioning in their early life. As you get to know that feeling, it’s likely you’ll notice when performance starts to slip, too. Even so, there are some tire problem symptoms that don’t immediately come across as a problem with tires.
If you find yourself wrestling with curves more than usual lately, this might not be a symptom of suspension system or steering issues. As your tires wear out, they often lose their grip on the road. This causes your steering to feel less responsive and your vehicle to feel like it’s sliding even though there’s no water on the road. You’ll notice even greater issues when there are rainy or icy conditions.
Many people don’t instantly recognize tire issues when they feel a vibration in the vehicle. People often mistake this issue for a problem with the engine, steering, or suspension systems. Other people might think it’s a braking issue. If you feel vibrations while you’re driving, it could be a problem with your Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram tires near Baltimore. At Don White’s Timonium Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, we’re capable of inspecting your entire vehicle to see if there’s a problem with the tires or something else. Differential diagnosis is one of the most important parts of our job here at our dealership serving Cockeysville Baltimore Dundalk Parkville Essex.
If you suspect a problem with your Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram tires near Baltimore, perform a quick visual inspection. If your tires are worn out enough, you’ll see things like cracks in the wall of the tires or wearing of the tread depth. As the tread wears out, your tires become less capable of holding traction on the road.
Get Routine Tire Maintenance at Don White’s Timonium Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram
There are rare occasions when tires can be repaired instead of replaced, but most of the time people prefer to replace their Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM tires near Baltimore. To successfully replace tires and be happy with the performance you get, the tires need to be the right type and the right size for your model. Here are just a few tips when selecting your next set of tires.
Decide on your preferred performance
If you’re someone who doesn’t need your CDJR vehicle to be track ready, you might prefer a less expensive pair of all-season tires that are made for general use in everyday road conditions. The commuters of the world will be happy with the savings and still be satisfied with performance. However, if you have a high powered truck or off-road machine, you’ll want to get high performance tires or something capable of performing well in high performance situations.
Never neglect to check the size
Not every tire will properly fit your vehicle. There’s usually a ceiling for how large tires can be on a certain vehicle and still perform well. This is a minimum tire size and a maximum. Our trained professionals can show you a suite of tires that fit your model. If you want to add some height to your model, go bigger rather than smaller.
Replace all four tires whenever possible
Tires work best together when they’re all the same age. Even tire wear is vital to owners who want a model that performs in adverse road conditions. While it’s not always possible to replace all four tires at once, do this whenever you can. And we recommend always replacing two at a time, never just one. If you get uneven wear on your tires, it negatively affects performance, and that’s something we never want you to go through.
