Keep Your Dodge Tires for a Long Time

Sarah McBride
April 7, 2006

The tires are very much known as the part of the vehicle that keeps the vehicle on the road and also helps in making the ride much more comfortable. Did you know that tires have rating systems? Well, this is quite true and these ratings are actually to provide information on the tire’s traction, tread wear, speed rating, load rating, and temperature resistance. You see, a car’s performance is greatly affected by the type of tire that it has.

Vibration and shaking are two of the major problems that passengers could feel when a tire rotates. The best thing to do if you encounter a problem such as this would be to have your tires properly balanced. So how do you achieve this kind of balance for your tires? Try to position the weights of the wheel. By doing such, you actually counterbalance the heavy parts and spots of the whole wheel and tire assembly. You see, if your wheels are properly aligned, the angles of your wheels are adjusted so as to suit the correct positions of your vehicle. This move actually assists greatly in keeping your tires longer. However, wheel alignments should be done by a qualified technician.

The next question is, when you need to rotate your tires? Go check your owner’s manual. Information regarding this is included there. Find out how frequently do you need to rotate your tires and how do you go about it. You see, if you rotate your tires too much or not too often, your tires actually suffer and could get irregular wear and shorten its life.

If you accidentally get a punctured tire, do not be afraid to ask for assistance from qualified tire repair people. That way, they can actually estimate if the puncture is too large to be patched up or if the puncture is small enough that the tire can still run properly if repaired.

Dodge vehicles, just like any other vehicle, also rely on tires when it comes to performance. Statistics have it that when a tire is filled with too much air or when it riding flat, chances are that your vehicle and your pocket would suffer greatly. You see, your vehicle would have to feel every bump and turn on the road which could wear down the vehicle’s parts. Your pocket could also suffer for you would have to purchase replacement parts for the damaged ones. Also, if you drive with tires that are not inflated right, fuel is actually used up greatly which could result to you buying more gallons of gas.

With all the attention that the Dodge brand gives to each vehicle that they produce, it is only fitting that Auto Parts Deal offer top of the line Dodge replacement parts like tires and wheels to match their vehicles’ performance. The store holds various Dodge parts like wheel covers, bumper covers, projector headlights and tailgates among many others. The company boasts of an impressive array of Dodge parts and accessories which is continually updated.
