How can I make my car handle better?

I have a Chevy Camaro and while it has some nice pickup and overall speed, it doesn’t handle all that well. What’s a good way for me to make my car handle better?

Answer
A Chevy Camaro is a well-oiled machine that delivers some serious power. But if you want to improve its handling, you should invest in new tires, wheels, and shocks.
The first step is to get some low-profile tires. These types of tires reinforce your suspension, provide more grip, and improve cornering. These types of tires also have sidewalls that make turning far easier—even at high speeds.
If you have heavier wheels, you should upgrade to aluminum alloy. With the lighter weight, you’ll be able to handle corners easier while taking some of the stress off your suspension system.
Finally, you can upgrade your suspension by switching out your twin-tube shocks with monotube shocks. You may end up with a stiffer ride, but your car will effortlessly glide through the curves.
Before you start making changes to your car, check with your provider to see how the modifications will impact your car insurance rate. If you don’t like what you hear, use Jerry to make sure you’re still getting the best rate on the coverage you need.
