Winter Tires: Driving in the Cold? You Need Them!
In September of 2006, SSG Pearce of the 172nd Striker Brigade in Mushada, Iraq was escorting a convoy when it was hit by an IED. SSG Pearce was critically wounded by shrapnel hitting him in the head resulting in a traumatic brain injury with both vision and hearing loss. He was airlifted to Landstuhl, Germany, and then to Walter Reed Army Hospital where he spent several months in a coma. He fought hard to regain his life with his wife and 2 children. And his family has fought hard for him.
Recently, SSG Pearce’s wife needed to have a medical procedure on her ankle and foot, which left her unable to do her usual family and household chores.

When Should I Replace My Tires?
This is a question that crosses many consumers’ minds when purchasing tires. Many factors play a part in when tires should be replaced. The main aspects that should go into such a change are as follows:
DATE OF TIRES: The average lifespan of a tire that would be still be deemed safe and road appropriate is 5 years from the date of installation. This means from the moment they are mounted and balanced, based on the tires mileage expectancy, you should look into replacing your tires within 5 years, as based on highway safety results and the average consistency of the daily driver. This marks a point in time in which your tires will start to show signs of wear and tear and overall heavy usage that can start to result in a thinner, more wor ...[more]Read More
Tire Sizes Explained!
Finding your tire size may be hard at first, but once you know where it is listed and what each number means, it becomes very easy, even easier each time you need it in the future. Tire sizes are made of of three numbers, first is the tire “Width”, second the tire “Ratio”, and third is the “Rim” size/diameter. These numbers are located on most every car's inner door jam, as well as on the older/current tires outside wall. Using the size on the outer sidewall is very important if your car does have an aftermarket or replacement wheel that was not stock from the factory.
SimpleTire.com has also simplified this by adding an option on our website allowing you to search by your vehicle information. Simply enter the Year, Make, Model, and Option ...[more]Read More
