Your Guide to Tires - When to Replace and What to Replace Them With
Your tires are obviously important. However, it’s often underappreciated how much of a difference they make in the ride quality of your car, truck, or SUV, and what they can tell you about the condition of your vehicle. At Schaeffer Automotive in Huntingburg, IN, we like to keep you well informed on what your vehicle is telling you, and how to keep it in good shape. Your tires have a lot to do with that.
There are a wide variety of tires on the market today - and a wide variety even for your specific application. Which tire you need depends on the type of vehicle you drive...and there are even more options that depend on how you drive, what sort of terrain you drive on, and what type of weather you drive in. Choosing the best one will affect the way your car rides, handles, and tackles road conditions, more than you might think.
The condition of your tires also plays a large role in the way your vehicle operated. Stability, comfort, and traction are all heavily dependent on whether or not your tires are in good shape. You may not notice how bad they’ve gotten until you replace them, and you’ll find yourself wondering what took you so long to have them changed.
Finally, your tires can tell you a great deal about the condition of your car. By looking at a tire, a trained technician can tell if your wheels are out of alignment, to what extent, and what is out of alignment. They can see whether or not you have bad suspension components, like ball joints, or even whether your wheel bearings are going bad. When something is off with your suspension or alignment, tires begin to wear in specific ways - the same can happen if they’re over or under inflated.
Whatever you drive, this guide will enlighten you to everything you need to know about tires, and then some. Stay tuned to Schaeffer Automotive in Huntingburg, IN for the tire information you need.
