AUTOCRAZE: FORD RANGER SPECIALISTS | ANOTHER ONE…

Autocraze_ford_ranger_specialists_autocraze

At AutoCraze, fitting up a Ford Ranger has become common business. Whether it’s taking a phone call from a Ford Ranger owner from the utmost rural areas in Western Australia to seeing another brand spanking new Ford Ranger drive into our Sydney-based workshop, we honestly don’t know how it all started…

Since opening our doors in early 2015, we’re noticed a huge inundation of Ford Ranger owners purchasing tough new wheels for their daily workhorses. Essentially, these owners all want the same thing; aggressive fitment, superior styling and unbeatable value.

We hear the term ‘Ford Ranger’ so much that it’s actually become the butt of a recurring joke in the AutoCraze office. Have you heard of DJ Khaled and his catchphrase “Another One…”? Yep, that’s how we feel when hear about another Ford Ranger.

There are people who just casually drive from A to B, and there are others that enjoy doing it in style. This customer is definitely the latter. Having only taken delivery of his brand new Ford Ranger, the modifications had already started rolling in.

Right off the bat, the windows were tinted, sound system upgraded and the Kut Snake flares were fitted up. These tough bolt-on flares were itching for a set of wheels to fill it out. But before wheels were put on, a 2″ Lift Kit was organised.

The team at AutoCraze raised the Ranger with a 2″ Tough Dog Lift Kit giving it more clearance for bigger wheels. A set of 18″ Fuel Vapor in a Black Machined Dark Tint were bolted up giving it a unique look compared to going with an all black wheel. Finally the package was finished off with a set of BFGoodrich KO2 All Terrain tyres.

AUTOCRAZE’S 3 TIPS FOR LOOKING AFTER YOUR TYRES

1. CHECK YOUR TYRE PRESSURE – Check your tyre pressure at least once a month to ensure that your car’s handling, braking and fuel efficiency is in optimal condition. Next time you’re filling up your car with petrol, take a few minutes and use the petrol station’s air pressure gauge to make sure your tyres have the correct PSI.

2. CHECK YOUR TYRE TREADS – It’s essential that you check your tyres once in a while to ensure that the tread hasn’t worn out and that they are wearing out evenly.

Uneven tread wear is a sign that there may be an underlying issue that you need to address:

➺ Tyres worn on the outside; you may need to inflate them more or check for any leaks.

➺ Tyres worn in the centre; you may be over inflating them and this puts you at risk of a blowout.

➺ Single uneven tyre; you may need your wheels balanced, aligned or your shocks may be worn out.

➺ Front tyres are wearing out faster than normal; you may need to check your suspension or it might be time for a wheel alignment.

➺ ‘Saw-toothed’ pattern on tyre edges; you may need to get a wheel alignment.

Tread is incredibly important as it indicates how safe you are on the road. Tread that has worn out means you have less grip and this can have an impact on your braking ability and your control in wet weather situations.

3. ROTATE YOUR TYRES – This is an important step as your front tyres will almost always wear faster than the rear ones. This is because the front of your vehicle usually holds the engine and does most of the steering work; as a result of this the front axle will wear out much more quickly. This rotation of the tyres lets you get the most out of the tyre’s tread life.

A good estimate is to rotate your tyres roughly every 10,000km or if you notice any of the following signs:

➺ If you regularly drive at high speeds, long distances or carry heavy loads

➺ If you notice uneven wear

➺ Humming sound
