Keep Your Tires Healthy with These Easy Tips
Do you know what the most important safety feature is on your vehicle? It’s your tires! Safety and driver-assist features can’t perform as well if your tires aren’t in good shape, so it’s important to check on your tires to make sure your Chrysler, Dodge, Ram, or Jeep model can work at its best.
Checking and maintaining the health of your tires is easy with these steps:
Test your tire tread. The depth of tread on your tires is a good indicator of their health. Check the tread depth by inserting a penny top-first into the tread. If Lincoln’s head remains visible, your tires are too worn down. This makes it harder for your tires to function properly and puts them at risk for a blowout.
Rotate your tires. Tire rotations move your tires around on your vehicle to help ensure even tread wear on all four. You should get this done when you get your oil changed.
Make sure your wheels are aligned. If your wheel alignment is off, it can cause your tires to wear down prematurely.
