Benefits of Tire Retreads or Retreading Tires


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


Although picking out new tires can be a daunting endeavor, there are two important pieces of information you can identify that will greatly ease the process. First, you must recognize exactly what it is that you need most from your tires. This means that before you even begin to establish a list of criterion that make up the perfect tire for you, you must be aware of exactly what kind of road issues and driving conditions your tires will be faced with. Be it varying road surfaces, a majority of city driving, high speed driving or other high performance requirements, identifying this need is a definite necessity. Second, you must find a reputable or trustworthy source to purchase your tires from. If you have had a bad experience at a particular shop, you are better off trying a new one than returning to the old one and giving them repeat business.

Checking Your Oil and Tires


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]
