You’ve probably heard that old statement about “kicking the tires.” It’s exceptional advice that has unfortunately fallen into disuse. With all the computers and high-tech features that can be found in modern vehicles, it’s still the wheel that is arguably the most important aspect of getting you where you need to go. When your tires are not in the best shape it can have quite the adverse effect on your vehicle’s performance. Beyond that, it could be dangerous.

At Jake Sweeney Chrysler Jeep® Dodge RAM in Cincinnati, OH the most common tire problems we come across are worn tread and improper inflation, both of which can be hazardous to drivers.

When the tread of a tire becomes so worn that the tire appears smooth, it is long past time to get it replaced. Tires need the tread to grab the road and make sure the vehicle has enough traction for the driver to maintain control. When your tires become too worn, all you can do is replace them. When you come into Jake Sweeney Chrysler Jeep® Dodge RAM, our specialized technicians in our car service center will replace your worn tires with quality new Dodge tires.

The inflation of your tires is also extremely important, though easier to fix. When your tires are under or over inflated they become much more vulnerable to damage from a rock in the road or a pothole, especially at higher speeds. We can check your tire pressure for you and adjust it accordingly.

To help you get more out of your tires for a longer period of time, we recommend you use dedicated winter tires in the frostier months, as they are designed to hold up against the harsher conditions.
