Taking care of the tires on your Jeep® Cherokee or Jeep Wrangler can sometimes be confusing. You may not know how often to get them checked out by your Millville, NJ Jeep dealership, or what to watch out for.

Tread

Tires have a certain amount of tread on them when they’re brand new. Tread helps the tires to be most effective on the road with things like traction and hydroplaning. It’s important that your tires keep a good amount of tread on them throughout their lifetime to give your vehicle the best traction possible as you drive in all types of weather.

Tire rotation

Tire rotation is important for your Jeep SUV to ensure that all parts of the tire are getting an equal amount of wear. This makes the tire last longer because varying pressure levels are being put on different parts of the tire, not all in one place all the time. Many specialists recommend that the tires on your Jeep are rotated every 5-6 months or every 6,000-8,000 miles.

Tire alignment

Aligning your tires actually has little to do with the tires themselves. This is an important service to have done on your vehicle regularly because it ensures that the suspension of your tires, meaning the way that they’re connected to the vehicle and the angle to which they’re hitting the road, are all aligned.
