Benefits of Tire Retreads or Retreading Tires

October 10th, 2011

tire retreadingWe hear the term retreads and retreading quite a bit in the tire industry. What those terms mean exactly and the benefits of retreading are concepts people rarely grasp.

Retreading is the process by which certain worn tires, called casings, receive a brand new tread. Only specific tires with carefully inspected tire bodies are used in retreading.

Just like manufacturing a new tire, the worn tread is buffed away, and then a new tread is applied to the tire body. There are quite a few different ways to bond a retread to a tire, but as always the result is the same, a new tread is applied through the use of pressure, heat, and time.

Tire retreading has seen steady growth since the early 1990’s. Tire retreading is a booming industry, and is not going anywhere. Currently, there are arou ...[more]

5 important things to consider when shopping for new tires

October 3rd, 2011

Second, you must find a reputable or trustworthy source to purchase your tires from.

Checking Your Oil and Tires

May 4th, 2011

Whether you own a new car or an automobile that has somehow stood the test of time, regular car maintenance is important to the longevity and usability of your vehicle. Here are a few tips to keeping your car in good condition.

Oil

Checking your engine’s oil should be a regular practice and it’s something everyone can do quite easily. Just remember to check your dipstick regularly and make sure that the oil level is between the low and high marks.

Too little or too much oil can be harmful to your engine and may potentially lead to expensive trips to a mechanic.

Similarly, most engines generally require an oil change every 3000 miles. Old oil can gunk up engines, slowing your entire car down, and causing some extensive damage and problems. Fresh oil will keep your engine running as good as new.

Tires

Tires can endure a lot of punishment day to day. As a material, rubber wears down quite easily, especiall ...[more]

Proper Tire Inflation: Increase Safety and Save Money

April 5th, 2011

Did you know that most tire failure is caused by improper inflation? Irregular wear, tire stress, blowouts, reduced gas mileage, loss of control, and accidents are just a few of the negative effects associated with tires that are not properly inflated.

Many of us simply neglect to check our tire pressure until something goes wrong. In fact, millions of us drive around daily not knowing whether our tires are properly inflated or not.

According to industry recommendations, you should check the pressure in each of your tires and spare once a month or before any long trips. Because recommended inflation pressures are for cold tires, be sure to check them only after they have not been driven for several hours, preferably overnight.

A pressure gauge can easily be used to check tire pressure at home. The recommended pressure for your tires can be found in the vehicle’s manual or on the driver door edge, glove box, or fuel door. Remember that you ca ...[more]

Saving Money When Replacing Tires

March 9th, 2011

Any vehicle owners who have owned a car or truck for some time will eventually need to replace their tires. Since tires can be expensive, many car owners decide to save money by looking for some bargains. But the pertinent issue is not how much you save on tires, but how safe are the tires that you are buying. Your personal safety and the safety of your family and friends, depends on the quality of your tires among other safety features of your car.

Price Vs Quality

While price is certainly a major consideration, it should not be the only factor in your tire buying decision. Tires connect your vehicle to the road. When you are driving at higher rates of speed on a freeway or around corners on a mountain road, a blowout may possibly be fatal. Used tires may satisfy your current budget, but isn’t it worth spending a little extra money for the benefit of much greater safety? The ideal solution is to get some brand new tires at a price you ...[more]

Can Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems Save You Money?

February 3rd, 2011

Yes! A tire pressure monitoring system can save you money and here's how--

First, tires that are properly inflated last longer. There is less tread wear on a tire that is properly inflated, so your tires need to be replaced less often. Also, proper inflation helps protect the side walls, resulting in reduced chance of blowouts. Blowouts are dangerous enough, but if you are towing another vehicle, trailer, or boat, blowouts are even more frightening.

Overinflated tires don't "feel" the road as well and are more prone to damage from potholes and foreign road objects. Over inflation also leads to uneven tread wear. Rapid tread wear leads to rapid tire failure and, therefore, expensive tire replacement.

Under inflation causes the tire to "bend" more as it rolls. These tires are much more likely to fail while you are driving.

Second, tires that are properly inflated can save you money on gasoline. The U.S. Departm ...[more]
