RPM Automotive in Cambridge carries a wide selection of tires and rims for all your vehicle’s needs. Your tires are your vehicle’s only contact with the road you drive on, and because of this, there are many benefits to purchasing new tires. They are instrumental in ensuring that your vehicle maintains its traction and is able to brake quickly and efficiently. Tires also play a role in giving you and your passengers a smooth ride and can impact your gas mileage.
New tires have a deeper tread and will help your vehicle maintain better traction and therefore are safer as they handle the road better, especially in less than desirable weather conditions. The better condition your tires are, the more power your vehicle will have when you drive. Your new tires will help you stop quicker, start smoother, and turn better, making the drive for you and your passengers safer and more comfortable.
New tires will also give you better gas mileage as your vehicle doesn’t have to work as hard to move. Be sure to have the team at RPM Automotive align and balance your wheels to really maximize your gas mileage.
So when is it time to change your tires? You should inspect your tires regularly to look for signs that they need to be replaced. If you notice that some tires are wearing differently than others, this may be an indication of a problem. Front and back tires may wear differently, but one front tire shouldn’t have more wear than the other front tire and same applies with the back ones. Tread wear is also an important factor; you should be able to see how worn or bald a tire is, but there are several different methods you can use to measure your tread or seek professional help from the team at RPM Automotive. Physical damage such as bulges and cracks are also an indication that your tires should be replaced.
