What is a Tire and Wheel?
Tire and Wheel refers to the combination of a tire and wheel that is mounted on an automobile. It provides the connection between the vehicle and the road, and is responsible for the vehicle's traction, handling, and braking.
What are the components of a Tire and Wheel?
A Tire and Wheel is composed of a tire, a wheel, a tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) sensor, and a wheel hub. The tire provides traction and is the interface between the road and the vehicle. The wheel provides the mounting surface for the tire and is responsible for the vehicle's handling and braking. The TPMS sensor is responsible for monitoring the air pressure in the tire and alerting the driver if the pressure is too low. The wheel hub connects the wheel to the vehicle and provides the rotational force needed to turn the wheel.
How can I tell if my Tire and Wheel is faulty?
If your Tire and Wheel is faulty, you may notice:
- Vibrations coming from the wheel while driving

- Poor handling or braking performance
- Low tire pressure
Can a faulty Tire and Wheel cause damage to my vehicle?
Yes, a faulty Tire and Wheel can cause damage to your vehicle. If the tire is overinflated or underinflated, it can lead to uneven tire wear and poor handling or braking performance. If the wheel is not properly mounted, it can cause vibrations that can damage other components of the vehicle.
How do I replace a Tire and Wheel?
