With each mile that you drive in your new RAM truck, your vehicle is accruing more wear and tear, especially your tires. As your tires are what maintains surface with the road through all the bumps, divots, and inclement weather, they take the brunt of the damage. Tire wear will not only affect your tire performance-- it will affect your vehicle's overall performance. There are a number of factors that can cause irregular tire wear, so it's important to regularly inspect and check your tires. In your vehicle's owner's manual, there is a section that addresses tire care. It will tell you how often you should get your tire inspections, tire rotations, what your PSI should be, and when you need to replace your tires for both optimal performance and safety.


Here at your New Castle RAM Truck Service Center, we're here to help you stay on top of your tire care. Our team is here to help you with your routine tire rotations and inspections, which will ensure that your tires are wearing properly. One at-home test you can do to check your tire wear is the Penny Test. The Penny Test is an easy way to measure tread depth. Tire tread is important because it is what grips the road and ensures traction between the vehicle and the road. The Penny Test involves placing a penny with Lincoln's head facing down in your tire's ribs. If Lincoln's head completely disappears, your tires are probably good to go. If you can see some or all of his head, it is a good indication that your tires need to be replaced, or at least, inspected.
