Check Your Rams Tire Pressure

The most common reason for tire failure is poor tire pressure. If your Ram’s tires are not correctly inflated, there will be a lot of stress put on them which will cause irregular wear, and you might lose control of your Ram. One thing to keep in mind is while your Ram’s tire might not look flat, it might have lost 50% of its air pressure. For this reason, you should constantly be checking your Rams tire pressure because sometimes the eyeball test isn’t enough, and your tires might be going flat. If you want to check your Rams tire pressure yourself, all you will need is a sturdy tire gauge. Just be sure to make sure your tires are cool when you check your tire pressure, and be sure to check your spare tires as well!

Check Tire Alignment

To ensure that your Ram’s tires live a long and healthy life, they should be rotated every time you get an oil change or every 5,000 miles. When you rotate your tires, your tires are switched to different positions to ensure they are wearing evenly. This task is critical as your front tires will have more responsibility than your rear tires. Different tires will also have different weights, and regular tire rotations on your Ram will slow down the uneven tread wear as it evens out the differences. One commonly used pattern to rotate your Rams tires on front-wheel-drive is using an X-Pattern as the left front tire is switched with the right rear and the right front switches places with the left rear.

Measure Your Tire Tread

Get in the habit of checking your Ram’s tire tread regularly, and if the tread of your Rams tires are wearing down rapidly in certain areas or wearing unusually, this means that your truck isn’t gripping the road as it should, and this can create some unsafe conditions. Be sure to ask our experts here at Martin CDJR to check your tire’s tread during tire rotations and tire alignments. We will replace your Ram’s tires if they are worn down by 1/16th of an inch. There is a test that lets you know if you’re driving your Ram with the right amount of tread. You can take a penny and put it in the tread groove. If you can see Lincoln’s head in its entirety, then it’s time to get a new set of tires. The good news is most Ram’s have built on tread indicators, so you will know when you need a new set.
