Are your truck tires ready for winter? How does the tire tread look? How did your tires perform last year? Is there uneven wear? When is the last time your truck had an alignment check?
Your tires keep your truck connected to the road, properly gripping in all weather conditions, turn safely and stop your truck well. Each of your truck tires supports a quarter of the weight of your truck. If any of your tires are in poor condition, it can be a safety issue very quickly. So it’s important to assess your truck tires regularly, especially before winter sets in, to be sure they will perform well and keep you and your family safe.
Getting the maximum traction from your truck tires is important in all weather conditions. Good traction ensures that you maintain control of your truck—even in rain, slush, or snow as they properly allow it to pass between the grooves. Without good truck tire tread, the rubber just spins on the wet surfaces and you can quickly find yourself in a scary or unsafe situation.
Even when the weather is good, having truck tires that are in good condition allows you to handle your truck well and reduced fuel consumption.
At Babcock Auto Care, we can help you choose the right truck tires, then our mechanics will mount and balance them. As always, whenever you get new truck tires, it’s a good idea to have your truck alignment checked and align where indicated.
