Van Horn Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM FIAT of Plymouth welcomes you to our site and hopes you’re having a wonderful start to your summer. We’re having a great time here at your trusted Dodge dealer serving Sheboygan, WI, and we’d love to share the fun with you as well. A thing to remember about the summer season is the unique vehicle maintenance tasks required, and a big one is tire care. Today, we’re sharing some key tips to help keep your tires properly maintained all summer and beyond.

Tire care tips might seem like common sense, but there are nuances and specifics to keep in mind during different times of the year. Our new and used car dealership recommends that you always keep an eye on tire pressure and the tread of your tires.

Having too shallow of tread can make your vehicle unsafe to drive, as you may not have enough traction to properly grip the road. It also increases fuel consumption and makes your tires more prone to getting a flat.

The tire pressure should always be checked before you hit the road for a trip; summer warmth can negatively affect the pressure levels of your tires. In fact, for every 10-degree change in temperature, your tires have the potential to lose/gain 1 psi. Under-inflated or over-inflated tires can result in issues like decreased MPG, poor handling, and potentially serious safety concerns. Naturally, you’ll want to avoid all these things. We’re happy to maintain your tires for you at our car service center here at Van Horn Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM FIAT of Plymouth!

Everyone at Van Horn Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM FIAT of Plymouth thanks you for reading today and we hope to see you at the dealership soon. Have a safe and fun summer, everyone!
