We’ve all likely been there before, one moment you’re driving down the road, minding your business, the next you’ve got a flat tire. Fortunately, with the help of our parts department staff at Northpointe Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM, we can help you avoid a potential flat tire with some expert tire care tips.
A flat tire can be caused by any number of factors, however, the best thing you can do to avoid one is to take proper care of your tires. Your first tip, and possibly the most important of them all, is to stay on top of your air pressure levels. Whether overinflated or underinflated, a tire with improper air pressure levels is at greater risk of bursting unexpectedly.
Our second tire care tip is to remain aware of the road itself. Whether you’re taking on rough road conditions or are cruising down a street peppered with potholes, staying aware of potential flat-tire causing hazards can go a long way in potentially avoiding one.
Our last tip is to receive a regular tire rotation. Tire rotations can ensure that all of your tires wear down evenly. Tires that are excessively worn on a particular part of the tire develop weak spots which can lead to a sudden flat tire. By rotating your tires every 5,000 miles you can better your chances at avoiding a flat tire caused by excessive tire wear.
