Tires, brakes and more
Experienced towers tend to stop into Ron’s Hitch N Tow most often for new tires. Whether you tow or have an RV, do not leave your tire purchasing to an amateur. One of the most critical aspects of safety on the road for both towers and RV owners is having the correct tires in good condition. Many factors go into choosing the right tires, including application (such as what type of towing setup you have or how large your RV is), load capacity (which is important for what type of towing you do) and speed rating. There also are many brand and tread choices available that are important to consider when it comes to your budget, where you do most of your driving and what vehicle you have. Let an expert help you find the right tires for your specific application.
Brake controllers are also an important consideration when modifying your towing system. Considering the importance of your brakes, it is recommended that you have an expert guide you through the process of purchasing a brake controller. There are basically four different types: timing activated, inertia activated, proportional activation and a more recently developed hydraulic system. The right style for you will come down to the distances you drive, the capacity of cargo you tow and your overall budget.
