Are Your Tires Ready for Snow?

5

Snow is in the forecast, Pittsburghers! Are your tires ready? Here are a few essential tips.

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.”

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

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.

Why Buy 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 and has caused 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 our high standards are not sold.

What a “Wintry Mix” Means For Your Tires

  
Pittsburgh forecasters are calling for a “wintry mix” – or a mix of rain and snow – this weekend.

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.
