Not All Used Tire Sellers Are Created Equally

Champtires Supports RMA’s Statement on Banning Unsafe Used Tires; But Explanation on Safe vs. Unsafe Used Tires Is Missing

Champtires, which sells new and high-quality used tires, supports the Rubber Manufacturer’s Association’s (RMA) recent statement on supporting states that ban the sale of unsafe, used tires.

However, Champtires’ President Brad Rea feels that RMA could do more to illustrate the difference between reputable used tire sellers that sell safe products and others who are selling damaged products.

“We air test and inspect every tire that enters our warehouse,” Rea said. “RMA is doing a great job urging states and consumers to understand the risks of buying worn, damaged tires, but they fail to include that buying premium used tires is still a cost-effective and safe option for drivers.”

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’ 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.

“If you have ever bought a used car, you also bought and drove on used tires,” Rea said. “There is definitely a huge difference between safe and unsafe used tires, and the tire and auto industries need to work to better educate drivers on that.”

Since 2009, Pittsburgh-based startup Champtires has provided drivers around the United States with affordable, high-quality used tires through the company’s website and its Pittsburgh, Pa. warehouse. For more information, visit http://www.champtires.com.

Tires Key To Improving Gas Mileage

fuel economyGas 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.

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.

Winter Driving Tips

winter driving tipsDriving in winter weather conditions is not fun. To help ensure your safety as well as your passengers and others on the road, here are a few tips to follow:

  • Accelerate and decelerate slowly.
  • Drive slowly.
  • Increase the pavement following distance between you and the car in front of you.
  • Understand what kind of brakes your car has.
  • Keep the gas tank at least half full.
  • Make sure your tires are properly inflated.

Having the correct tire pressure is essential for proper handling. A temperature change of just 10 degrees can cause a ten percent reduction, or constriction, of air in tires. So tire pressure can be affected from day to night temperature – not to mention when temperatures drop severely.

Check the optimal tire pressure of your vehicle on the label inside the driver’s door frame or in the owner’s manual.

Worn tires—especially bald ones—can be deadly on wet or snow-covered roads, where the grooves aren’t deep enough to channel water or snow out from beneath the tread and affects control of the steering wheel. Wet-weather braking and snow traction also decrease as tires wear.

ConsumerReports.org has said about tire tread levels that, “Unfortunately, 2/32 of an inch may be too late if you drive in rain or snow. Based on our tests of new and half-tread-depth tires, you may want to consider shopping for new ones on your car or truck closer to the 4/32-inch groove depth.”
