Dayton Tire Sales & Automotive Service Center
If you’re like most people, you probably don’t think too much about your tires. But the truth is, they play a vital role in keeping your car running smoothly and safely. That’s why it’s important to make sure your tires are properly maintained.
At Performance Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram Centerville, we offer a variety of services to keep your tires in top condition. We can rotate them to ensure even wear, repair any damage that may have occurred, and even replace them if necessary.
There are six types of tires – passenger, light truck, all-season, winter, performance, and off-road tires. Let’s take a closer look at each one. (hover over image to learn more)
All-season tires are designed to provide good traction in both dry and wet conditions. They typically have a symmetrical tread pattern with large tread blocks. All-season tires are a good option for drivers who do not want to change their tires with the seasons.
Light truck tires are designed for use on pickup trucks, SUVs, and vans. They usually have a higher profile and bigger diameter than passenger tires. Light truck tires also have a harder compound, which means they last longer but provide a rougher ride.
Light Truck Tires
Passenger tires are designed for use on sedans, coupes, minivans, and small crossover vehicles. They typically have a lower profile and smaller diameter than other types of tires. Passenger tires also have a softer compound, which means they wear down faster but provide a smoother ride.
Winter tires are designed to provide good traction in snow and ice. They typically have a deeper tread than all-season tires and may also have grooves or siping (tiny slits) to provide extra grip. Winter tires are a good option for drivers who live in areas with harsh winters.
Performance tires are designed for use on sports cars and other high-performance vehicles. They typically have a low profile and smaller diameter than other types of tires. Performance tires also have a softer compound, which means they wear down faster but provide a smoother ride.
Off-road tires are designed for use on trucks and SUVs that will be driven off-road. They typically have a deeper tread than other types of tires and may also have grooves or siping (tiny slits) to provide extra grip. Off-road tires are a good option for drivers who plan to take their vehicles off the beaten path.
All-Terrain and Mud-Terrain Tires
Tires should be rotated every 5,000 miles or so to ensure even wear. If your tires aren’t rotated, they can become prematurely bald in spots and blowouts become more likely.
No one wants to be stranded on the side of the road with a flat tire, so make sure you keep up with your tire maintenance! Many auto shops offer tire rotation services, so take advantage of them when you can. It’ll save you money and hassle in the long run.
Under-inflated tires can lead to decreased fuel economy, increased wear and tear, and decreased safety. Over-inflated tires can also cause problems, and can lead to a “bouncy” ride.
If you’re not sure how to properly inflate your tires, or don’t have the time, many tire retailers and service stations offer tire inflation services. These services typically cost a few dollars per tire, and can save you time and money in the long run. When having your tires inflated, be sure to ask the technician to check the tread depth and wear patterns. Tires with significant wear may need to be replaced.
Properly inflated tires are an essential part of safe driving, so be sure to check your tire pressure regularly. If you’re not sure how, ask a professional. It could save your life.
You can either replace all four tires at once, or just replace the two front or back tires. If you choose to replace all four tires, you’ll need to purchase new ones and have them installed by a professional. This can be costly, but it’s often the best option to ensure that all of your tires are in good condition.
No matter which option you choose, it’s important to make sure that your tires are in good condition. This means checking for things like tread wear, air pressure, and damage. If you notice any of these issues, it’s time to start thinking about tire replacement. By taking care of your tires, you can ensure that your vehicle is running smoothly and safely.
By keeping your wheels in proper alignment, you can extend the life of your tires and ensure a smoother ride. Our wheel alignment services can help you keep your vehicle running at its best.
When it comes to alignment, there are a few things to keep in mind. First, your vehicle’s alignment can be affected by hitting a curb or pothole. If you notice your vehicle pulling to one side, or if your tires are wearing unevenly, it’s time to have your alignment checked.
Second, your alignment should be checked periodically as part of your regular maintenance schedule. This will help ensure that your vehicle remains in good condition and can help you avoid costly repairs down the road.
If you’re due for an wheel alignment, or if you think your alignment may be off, contact our team of experts. We can help you get your vehicle back on track.
