How to Get the Most Out of Your Tires

 

Check Tires - RAM Truck

The tires of your RAM truck are designed to endure and drive through the roughest, toughest terrain. But, hey, nothing can last forever and it should be your responsibility as a RAM driver to make sure your tires remain as good as new.

Fortunately, there’s a few things you can do to ensure your tires keep on rolling without any problems!

Air Pressure

Like nail-biting or not tipping your waiters, not checking your tires for air pressure is certainly a bad habit you want to kick. Get yourself into a groove of checking air pressure on a regular basis.

Also make sure to do it in the morning before you drive or a few hours after your last trip as the air in your tires can expand in a warmer climate. Tires can lose one or two pounds of pressure a month and it’s crucial to keep tires properly inflated before they’re reduced to rubbery nothingness.

Check Camber and Toe

Tire alignment can seriously impact the performance of your RAM truck. There are two things you can do to avoid the scenario: check the camber and check the toe.

The camber is the tilt of the tire toward or away from the truck’s frame, and the toe is the stance of your tires. If you notice your tires are even just slightly off angle, then make an appointment at your nearest car garage to get your tires realigned. Tire rotation may also be needed too.

Tire Rotation

And speaking of tire rotation, here we are. It’s also a good idea to get your tires rotated on a regular basis. This procedure requires the tires to be moved to a new position on the vehicle.

A regular tire rotation ensures you won’t be your tires down at the same angle. It is recommended you rotate your tires every 6,000 to 8,000 miles to increase the longevity of your tires.
