Car tires are a major contributing factor to the overall comfort of the ride, the car’s stability and safety and in recent decades it has become a major aspect of the visual element of it. Technically speaking, they are associated with the vehicle’s suspension system. The suspension system is itself is pretty detailed though it can be most simply described as being composed of the features that are located under the body of the vehicle and are used to keep it elevated and traveling along the road. Some theorists consider the wheels and tires to be part of this and others consider it to be the system that connects to the wheels, which often have 20 rims, though they are not actually an aspect of it.

Generally speaking the suspension system has various linkages and includes the shock absorption system and the springs. The shock absorber is also known as the damper to many technicians is there to smooth out the vehicle’s ride. There are many unexpected bumps along the road caused by natural road deterioration and various damage. In addition the weight of the vehicle and what it may or may not be carrying could weigh it down affect the overall ride of any car. These components are not on their own reliable to predict the quality and smoothness of the ride of any car, so the shock absorption system was created to monitor and ensure a steady flow.

The tires and custom truck wheels also play a part in the ride of the car. Generally speaking, larger tires will provide a smoother ride and sometimes the quality of the tire can also impact the amount of shaking that any steering wheel will experience at greater rates of speed. Worn out tires or tires with bumps or that have become uneven can affect the alignment and in extreme cases the shock system of a car. For this reason, it is import to bring your vehicle in on a regular basis to have the tires looked at and rebalanced or rotated if necessary.
