Why are tires and wheels important?

The main functions of the tires and wheels of a vehicle, include supporting the vehicle load, transmitting traction and braking forces to the road surface, absorbing road vibrations, and changing and maintaining the direction of travel.

Effectiveness of breaking, acceleration and steering are all influenced by what happens at the contact patch, the small portion of tire rubber that directly meets the asphalt surface. The grip a tire offers depends both on the condition of the surface and the rubber itself.

To ensure these functions are being adequately met, there are some important things to inspect on each of your vehicle’s tires on a regular basis, including the tread depth of your tires, the wear, the air pressure, and any damage or signs of deterioration, bends or cracks on your wheels.
