Tires and Gas Mileage

gas_mileage_icon_by_waqas_47-d57p2hcGas prices are dropping across the U.S., but there are several things you can keep an eye on to maintain your vehicle – and get the most out of your gas mileage.

Your tires play a key role in how your car uses gas.

Keep your tires properly inflated. Fueleconomy.gov reports this that can improve your gas mileage by up to 3.3% by keeping your tires inflated to the proper pressure. Under-inflated tires can lower gas mileage by 0.3% for every 1 psi drop in pressure of all four tires. Properly inflated tires are safer and last longer.

Note: To find the correct tire pressure for your car, check for a sticker in the driver’s side door jam or the glove box or in your owner’s manual. Do not use the maximum pressure printed on a tire’s sidewall.

Do not drive on worn tires. Besides being unsafe because they do not handle wet or icy conditions well at all, worn tires with uneven tread pattern will cause your car to use more gas than necessary.

For information on how to quickly check tread levels, click here.

Increasing the size of your wheels and tires impacts gas mileage. Bankrate.com says that when engineering your vehicle, the manufacturer invested time and money determining the ideal wheel size and tire type. Replacing the original-equipment wheels and tires can affect handling and fuel economy. If you want to use plus-size wheels, find out how to compensate for the change.

If your tires aren’t keeping pressure or have low tread, do not let the high cost of new tires scare you from fixing the problem.

Champtires can help you get affordable, high-quality used tires with good tread levels – in any brand name or quantity that you need.

Champtires also sells new tires at the lowest prices you’ll find anywhere.

For more information, call 412-462-3000, visit Champtires.com or shop in person at our two convenient Pittsburgh-area locations – where we also install tires:

Pittsburgh Store: 1319 Washington Blvd. Pittsburgh, PA 15206

West Mifflin Store: 1130 Lebanon Rd West Mifflin, PA 15122

The Dangers of Driving With Worn Tires

Why Buy Used Tires?

What does hot weather mean for your tires?

daytonaEven if you’re not planning to drive your car on the beach this summer, hot weather presents a few unique challenges to tire quality and safety.

Long road trips, higher temperatures, hauling heavy loads and driving faster all put additional stress on your tires. Here are a few summer tire safety tips:

  • You should check your tires regularly for wear and tear, but if you’re planning any driving vacations or weekend trips away, it’s imperative to inspect your tires before you leave. Finding any potential problems before you head out will increase your safety and could save you a lot of money in the long run. For tips on how to quickly inspect your tires, click here.
  • Check your tire tread. Worn tread can cause a myriad of problems from unexpected blowouts to hydroplaning to your brakes not functioning properly. Click here to learn how to check your tire tread levels. If your tire tread levels are low, do not worry, Champtires can get you the tread levels you need in the brand name you trust – all at a very low cost.
  • Also check your tires’ sidewalls for any imperfections or bulges.
  • Find the recommended tire pressure for your vehicle in your owner’s manual. Check the pressure often, preferably when the tires are cold. And, don’t forget to check your spare tire! Note that the tire pressure listed on your sidewalls is the maximum pressure and is not intended to serve as notification of the correct pressure.
  • Do not overload your car or truck. Your vehicle and tires are designed to only operate safely up to their hauling limits. Carrying too much weight creates excessive heat inside your tires, which can lead to tire failure and an accident.
  • If your tires are not inflating properly, are worn or have low tread level, do not let the high cost of new tires scare you from fixing the problem. Champtires can help you get affordable, quality used tires with good treads – in any brand name or quantity that you need. Find out why buying used tires is a great option.

In the Pittsburgh area? Shop in person at our Pittsburgh location on Washington Blvd or in West Mifflin. We offer installation options as well.

If you’re outside of Pittsburgh, visit Champtires.com for the lowest prices on used tires on the Internet – plus we offer free shipping!

BRGR Wash BlvdThanks to everyone who came to the Washington Blvd grand opening celebration on Saturday. It was great to see so many longtime Champtires’ friends and meet new ones.

Champtires.com Opens Second Pittsburgh Location

Wash Blvd with logoChamptires.com, which specializes in selling premium used and affordable new tires, has opened a second Pittsburgh location. The new retail and tire installation center is located at 1319 Washington Blvd, Pittsburgh, PA 15206.

Since 2009, Champtires.com has been based in West Mifflin, PA – first operating only as an e-commerce solution for drivers across the U.S. by providing low cost, high quality used tires. Two years later, it added retail and installation options for Pittsburgh-area customers. The West Mifflin location will remain the company’s headquarters.

“Opening the Washington Blvd. store will let us easily offer different tire options for Pittsburgh drivers,” said Brad Rea, owner and president of Champtires.com. “We have attracted drivers from across the region to our West Mifflin location, and the new store will just make it more convenient for customers in the East End and northern suburbs.”

Roughly 40 percent of Champtires.com’s business comes from local sales, and while Rea sees an opportunity for that to increase, the company also remains focused on selling tires online.

“New tires can be extremely expensive, and we have found that consumers want to save money where they can. Our prices – especially for our used tires – can’t be beat,” Rea said.

Drivers who need to replace one, two, three or a whole set of tires can save up to 80 percent off of the cost of new tires by choosing used tires. Champtires.com has approximately 10,000 used tires in its inventory at any time, allowing the company to match brand names and tread levels to drivers’ existing tires.

Alluding to efforts to curb the selling of unsafe used tires, Rea pointed out that not all used tires dealers are created equally.

“We air test and inspect every tire that enters our warehouse. Buying premium used tires is a cost-effective and safe option for drivers,” he said. “If you have ever bought a used car, you also bought and drove on used tires.”

Opening the Washington Blvd. location has already created three full-time jobs: one manager-level and two customer service positions.

Champtires.com will hold a grand opening celebration at the Washington Blvd. location on Saturday, July 18 from noon – 3 p.m. Learn more.

Why buy high-quality used tires?

If you’re in the market for tires, considering used tires is a good choice if you’re looking to save money. However, not all used tire stores are created equally, so make sure that you purchase used tires from a reputable seller, such as Champtires.

Even if you just need to replace one tire, the cost of rubber has increased dramatically recently, causing the price of brand new tires to skyrocket. High-quality used tires are a much more affordable option.

Used tires are also an environmentally friendly choice – you will be using a premium, recycled product.

Why buy used tires from Champtires?

Champtires only sells the highest quality used tires. Every tire that enters Champtires’ warehouse is air-tested and quality-checked. Tires that do not meet Champtires’ high standards are not sold.

Only need one tire? No problem!

You can buy one, two, three or a whole set of tires from Champtires. Our inventory is so massive that we can match the tread level and brand name that you need.

Call Champtires at 412-462-3000 for more information.

Not in Pittsburgh?

Don’t worry – we offer FREE same-day shipping! Call 412-462-3000 or visit Champtires.com.
