Choosing the right tires for your fleet

Tires on a fleet vehicle

At Westerville Automotive in Westerville, OH, we know managing a fleet or commercial truck is no small task. For that reason, we like to keep you informed on things to look out for, and what to do about them. Tires are an area worth paying attention to...tire condition determines ride quality and drivability, and provides useful insight into the condition of your vehicles.

Tires are an important aspect of stability, traction, and handling capabilities. Bad tires are not only at risk of a blowout, they don’t grip the road as well, they don’t stabilize the vehicle correctly, and they cause performance issues in handling ability. Not to mention, they negatively affect the ride quality of a vehicle, and put other component at risk of damage.

There are a wide variety of tires on the market. The type of vehicle you operate largely determines what type of tire you need, of course. There are still multiple options however, best determined by weight, towing capacity, climate, and terrain. Even the type of driving you do factors enormously into which tire is the best tire for your application.

Finally, it’s good to know what wear patterns on a tire say about your vehicle - whether it’s all the tires, or just one. Over inflation, under inflation, bad ball joints, a front end that needs to be aligned, or faulty suspension and steering components create unique wear patterns on your tires. To the trained eye, these are obvious indicators of a problem that needs to be corrected.

This guide is intended to teach you everything you need to know about tires, so you know what to watch for, and which tire will work best for you and your commercial vehicle.
