Celebrate Earth Day All Yearlong With Used Tires

Celebrate Earth Day All Yearlong With Used TiresEarth Day, April 22, is right around the corner. If you are interested in saving the planet and are committed to green living, using used tires for your car is the perfect option.

Brad Rea, Champtires’ founder and president, started the company after his previous career in the waste management industry where he saw large quantities of high-quality used tires ending up in landfills. Brad was convinced that U.S. drivers – who were currently facing the worst financial downturn since the Great Depression – would appreciate an alternative to expensive, brand new tires. He was right.

Focus on Quality

Champtires only sells the highest quality used tires and puts each tire that enters its warehouse through a thorough inspection process. Every tire is visually inspected and filled with air to eliminate tires with defects.

High Tread Levels Available
Most passenger tires typically start new with 10/32 of an inch of tread. Typically, tire tread above 2/32 of an inch is considered to be adequate. Champtires carefully and accurately measures all tires with tread depth gauges.

April is National Car Care Month

carcareThe Car Care Council has established April as National Car Care Month to encourage drivers to pay attention to car maintenance in order to promote safety.

Rich White, executive director of the Car Care Council, recently said, “Your car has gotten you through one of the worst winters in recent memory, working overtime in harsh conditions, but the extreme cold, potholes and road salt have taken a toll. Since most Americans rely on their vehicles nearly every day to get to work, school and everywhere in between, taking a little time for car care now can save headaches and money in the long run.”

For quick tips on how to add car care, including making sure your tires are in great shape and what to do if they’re not, read Spring Car Care Tips.

Spring Car Care Tips

springSpring has sprung….even if it doesn’t quite feel like it yet.

According to the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration, 2,600 deaths a year occur from neglected vehicle maintenance. Especially since the winter was so harsh for millions of Americans, it is the perfect time to add taking care of your car to your spring-cleaning list.

A few tips:

  • Always refer to your vehicle’s owner’s manual and follow the recommended service schedule.
  • Check your tires. Driving on worn tires or tires with no tread is very dangerous. Typically, tire tread above 2/32 of an inch is considered to be adequate. However, some tests have shown that 4/32 is a much safer guideline to follow. For information on how to quickly inspect your tires, click here. If your tires 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. Call 412-462-3000, visit Champtires.com or shop in person at 1130 Lebanon Road, West Mifflin, PA 15122.
  • Check your tire pressure – cold weather can reduce tire pressure, and it’s safer to drive on tires that are properly inflated.
  • Test and replace old or weak batteries, plugs and wires.
  • Inspect belts and hoses for any type of tears or cracks.
  • Make sure your breaks are functioning properly.
  • Replenish engine oil, transmission fluid, brake fluid, antifreeze and windshield washer fluid as needed.
  • Check to see if windshield wipers need to be replaced.
  • Change out engine air, a/c and other filters as necessary.
  • Inspect all lights and bulbs – inside and out; replace any that have burned out.
  • Clean the interior and exterior.

The Dangers Of Driving With Worn Tires

worntireDriving on worn tires is a huge safety hazard – for you, your passengers and others on the road around you.

Typically, tire tread above 2/32 of an inch is considered to be adequate. However, some tests have shown that 4/32 is a much safer guideline to follow.

The bottom line is that it is extremely dangerous to drive on worn, bald and low tread tires. For example, when roads are wet, worn tires affect a car’s ability to brake quickly and efficiently.

A car is more likely to hydroplane with low tread tires.

Worn and bald tires are not able to gain traction on snow-covered and icy roads.

Low tread tires are more susceptible to punctures, which can lead to sudden blowouts.

Worn tires are more likely to lose air pressure, which impacts a car’s fuel economy, braking and steering. Low pressure is also a major cause of tire blowouts, and blowouts can potentially lead to losing control of a vehicle.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration recommends checking tire tread levels monthly. To learn how to quickly inspect your tires, click here.

Don’t let the high cost of brand new tires prevent you from replacing worn tires – consider high quality used tires instead. With more than 20,000 premium used tires in stock, Champtires can you tires with high tread levels at a fraction of the cost of new tires.

How To Quickly Inspect Your Tires

pennyDamaged or low-quality tires can wreak havoc on your car – and your wallet. Driving on low tread tires or tires with any type of defects drastically increase the likelihood of blowing a tire and causing damage to other parts of your car.

Luckily, if you need tires, Champtires can get you the brand and size your car requires at a huge discount.

If you’re not sure of what kind of shape your tires are in, here are a few things to check for:

  • Worn treads. Stick a penny in the tread, top first. If the tread doesn’t touch Lincoln’s head, your tires are worn. (Watch a short video demonstration.) If you have low tread, you’ll want to replace that tire(s) immediately. Champtires can help you and either get one, two or three tires to match your other tires’ tread levels or fix you up with a whole set.
  • Damage to the treads or sidewalls. This indicates that the tire is not performing properly. Again, at Champtires, you can get one, two, three or a full set of high-quality-used tires for a fraction of the cost of new tires.
  • Objects, like a nail or glass, poking into the tire.
  • Tread pulling away from the tire.

If you notice uneven wear, that could mean too much or too little air pressure, problems with your car’s alignment or problems with the steering or suspension. Stop by Champtires, and we’ll take a look for you.

Throwback Thursday: Tribune-Review Features Champtires

It’s time for Throwback Thursday (or #TBT on your favorite social media platform)!

In April 2012, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review’s Alex Nixon profiled Champtires in the article “Used tire seller finding business doesn’t revolve around Internet.”

Nixon wrote, “Brad Rea is rethinking his business, Champtires.com , an online retailer of used tires.

Although Internet sales account for about 70 percent of the West Mifflin-based company’s revenue — and are growing — Rea is discovering that many people who might be open to shopping for used tires online still want to ‘kick the tires’ before they buy.”

Read the full article.

If you are in the market for one tire or a whole set, call Champtires at 412-462-3000, visit Champtires.com or shop in person at 1130 Lebanon Road, West Mifflin, PA 15122.

Save on Car Leasing Turn-In Fees With Used Tires

Save on car lease turn-in fees

Do you lease your car?

Survive the tire part of the turn-in inspection by making sure your tread level will pass.

If there’s less than an eight of an inch of tread, you’re better off replacing the tires than paying the expensive fees.

[How to check your tread level.]

But don’t worry about spending a fortune on brand new tires for a car you’re turning back in! Replace them with high-quality used tires to save a substantial amount of money.

At Champtires, you can get one, two, three or a whole set of tires – in any brand name – with enough tread to make sure that you pass the lease turn-in inspection.

Call Champtires at 412-462-3000 or visit the store at 1130 Lebanon Road, West Mifflin, PA 15122 for more information.

If you don’t live in Pittsburgh, don’t worry – we offer same-day shipping! Call or visit Champtires.com.
