Tires, Tires, Tires…


We’ve come across some long running units out there that are having issues with tire life and irregular wear patterns.

One thing I see all too often when I come out to provide some tech support is that tires are being replaced without matching brand or tread pattern. This is a pretty big no, no. I like to ask mechanics if they would have different tires on the steer axle of their truck or even their own cars.

The slightest change in tire size, diameter or tread pattern can have a pretty significant effect on weight distribution. Proper inflation levels in the tire are just as important. If you want those tires and especially the axles they’re attached to have a nice, long, relatively issue free life then I’d recommend you replace tires together or at least get one that matches the diameter and tread patterns of the one you’re replacing.

If you have any questions don’t hesitate to leave them below or get in touch with us.

Thank you for reading and stay safe out there!

Rudy & Phil out!
