The kind of tires your vehicle equips can make the difference in performance. Many of our customers at Sansone Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM who visit our RAM, Dodge, Chrysler and Jeep parts center ask us what kind of tires they should buy, and the truth of the matter is that it can all depend on what you expect out of your car.

So, should you purchase off-road tires or street tires? Well, if you plan on taking your vehicle off of the pavement and into the wilderness, it might be worth investing in a set of tires tempered for that kind of driving. Off-road tires are not only durable, but they have deep treads which allow them to hold traction on a wide variety of terrain types including mud, snow, and even sand. However, they may be unnecessary if the most you plan to do is travel on graded roads.

If you’re planning on only light trails, or want to stick to the pavement, we instead suggest all-weather tires that excel at street driving but can manage some mild off-roading as well. While far from as durable or versatile as a set of off-road tires, all-weather tires can provide extra traction during rough road conditions. On top of that, all-weather tires won’t cause the extra drag that is associated with hefty off-road tires.

If you’re still unsure of what kind of tires to purchase, the auto experts at our car dealership can fill in all of the gaps. At Sansone Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM, we strive to provide you with the very best in automotive services in all of Avenel, NJ and beyond.
