Upgrades to Restore Pride in Your Ride
Your vehicle is a direct reflection of you in many ways. After all, the average American spends a lot of time in their car - nearly 11 hours a week. Maybe you just got a new vehicle and you're anxious to put your personal stamp on it, or perhaps your current ride's looking a little stale and could use a refresh. Switching things up with a lift kit or set of performance tires goes a very long way in making your vehicle feel decidedly like yours, whether you just got it or you two have been together for decades.
Many people lift their trucks, jeeps, or SUVs strictly for looks, however, there are other reasons for installing a lift kit. In fact, lifting a vehicle's suspension is one of the best ways to enhance performance. A lift gives your vehicle higher ground clearance, meaning that the body and frame are physically higher up off the ground. That allows you to safely tackle a much wider variety of terrain, on and off the road. Lifted vehicles also generally have better towing and hauling capabilities, as well as visibility.
Similar to lift kits, some people choose to put performance tires on their vehicles just for the look it brings. However, as their name implies, performance tires can also enhance your vehicle's overall performance. High-performance tires allow a car or truck to better hug the road, which improves traction and stopping, particularly at high speeds and in inclement weather. Depending on the tire you choose, you may also see increased vehicle stability and fuel economy. Whether you choose to lift your vehicle, install performance tires, or both, it's important to understand that these modifications can place additional stress on suspension and steering parts. Because of this, you should exercise even more caution than usual and have your vehicle inspected and serviced religiously.
