You’ll be hard-pressed to overstate the importance of proper tire care. At Lester Glenn Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM in Toms River, NJ, it is important to us that your car is in the best possible shape to get you where you want to go.

First and foremost, tire care is a matter of safety. Your tires are effectively the boots on the ground. They bear the weight of your car even when you aren’t using it. No matter how durable they’ve been made, eventually, they are going to need some attention.

Any number of things can cause problems. Hitting a nail, slow leaks, extreme heat, and extreme cold can all warp and damage your tires. Warped tires are more susceptible to catastrophic damage that can be devastating if it occurs on the road.

Moreover, improperly inflated or damaged tires do a number on the car’s overall performance and fuel efficiency. Even if the tire is properly inflated, shallow tread depth will also keep the car from performing optimally.

The only person in a position to notice these issues is the person using the vehicle. If you notice any of these problems, bring your car to the Chrysler tire center here at Lester Glenn Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM. You can never be too careful when it comes to tire safety.

Be sure to keep your tires clean as well. Try to avoid obvious hazards like objects in the road and potholes. It would not be unreasonable to give your tires a quick once-over every time you use the car. It may be in your best interest to invest in a tire gauge and air compressor, just in case you run into trouble on the road. However, for your regular tire rotations and an expert tire inspection, stop by our Chrysler service center and let us make sure your car is safe.
