Pontiac G8 Trailer Hitches

About Pontiac G8 Trailer Hitches

Pontiac cars are very dynamic and it is no wonder they attract drivers from all demographics of life. The fact that they are also very efficient makes them a favorite to many. Therefore next time you are thinking of going on vacation with your family using your Pontiac G8, do not despair. This is because you can get superior quality Pontiac G8 trailer hitches from CARiD. With that, you can carry all the things that you require for your trip on a trailer. Once you choose a hitch, ensure that you have one that will put only 10% of its total weight on the tongue of the hitch. This is very important because this is the recommended weight that the car would handle with the trailer. If you choose another hitch that is not compatible with your car, then you will end up with extra weight at the back tires. When this happens, it will not be easy to steer the car and you will end up interfering with oncoming cars because of your headlights which will be blinding to other drivers.

You can try to solve this problem by shifting some of the cargo in the trailer and in as much as this method might work, it will only be a temporary solution. Keep in mind that the reason as to why your trailer sways is because it does not have sufficient weight. But if you have the correct weight at the tongue of the hitch, you will not have this problem. Therefore ensure that you have the correct combination of trailer size and maximum Pontiac G8 carrying weight. To do this, check your car manual to determine the correct weight or visit the truck scales and see if it is the perfect combination. With this in check, then you can be assured of your safety while driving.

There are four major types of trailer hitches, regardless of whether they are installed at the factory or added on afterward. A hitch may simply have a bar sticking out past the bumper with a ball mounted to it. Or there may be a square receiver that takes a ball mount that slides into it. In all cases, there are different weight ratings.
When you’re setting up your trailer with a new tow vehicle, several things need to be considered: the ball mount and ball must be rated to take the weight, and the ball has to be at the right height. Once you have determined the proper weight class, choose a ball mount of a high enough class for your trailer, and set up your ball mount and ball for proper towing....
