Flat Tire? Don’t Stress.

Flat Tire? Don't Stress.

Having a flat or damaged tire is never going to be fun or happen at an ideal time. But Champtires can help alleviate some of the financial stress by saving you up to 80 percent on a replacement tire.

With more than 30,000 premium used tires in stock, Champtires can simply match the tread depth — and even the brand — to your remaining tires.

It’s important to note that if you’re replacing one tire, its tread level should match its counterpart. So front tire tread depths should match and back tire tread depths should be the same. Front and back tires should always be within 2/32 of each other.

If someone tells you that you can’t only replace one tire (or two) and insists that you need to buy two (or a whole set), be sure to question them as to exactly why…tread depths matching is what matters.

How To Find Your Tire Size and Determine Tire Tread Depth

Find Tire Size

Tire Size

Tire sizes are a series of numbers that refer to the tire’s width, aspect ratio and rim size. They are typically found in two places:

  1. On the tire’s sidewall. (See above image for an example)
  2. On a sticker on the inside of the driver’s car door.

You can also search Champtires’ website to find out what tire size(s) fits your vehicle.

Tread Depth

In the U.S., the accepted measurement for tire tread levels are in 32nds of an inch. Tire tread gauges are used to obtained specific measurements. Most passenger tires start out with a tread level of 10/32. States, like Pennsylvania, that have vehicle safety inspections require tires to have certain tread depths to pass. 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.

Learn how to use a tire tread gauge.

When tires are worn or nearly bald, the penny test is useful.

The Dangers of Driving With Worn Tires.

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.

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.

Why Buy Used Tires?

Recently on the Champtires Facebook page, we held a contest. For a chance to win a $25 gift certificate, our Facebook friends just needed to comment with one reason why buying used tires is a safe an affordable option for drivers.

[Read more: Why Buy Used Tires?]

Using a random number generator, Vickie won the gift certificate for her answer, “It’s an environmentally friendly option.”

Some of the other responses included:

“Because buying your used tires supports a local business,” said Heidi.

Buc wrote, “The reason why they’re a safe option is because buying them from Champtires Pittsburgh they are tested and approved right there on the spot and the cost of the tires are very affordable because they go by the 32nd of the tread and sometimes when you can’t get tires that are brand new, you can go and get tires from them that are just as good and might last just as long to get the job done for vehicle to keep you on the go in your everyday venture.”

“They always look new to me, I can’t tell the difference which assures me safety with the tires at a good price,” Sabrina shared.

Shacoya said, “It’s safe because you get tires from trusted brands that still have plenty of life left in them, and it’s affordable because you get them at a great price in comparison with buying brand new tires from a store.”

And, Brian said, “Because they get the job done at a wayyyy cheaper price!!!! I recommend CHAMPS to all my friends and family!”

We loved reading these responses! If you want to participate in our next contest, be sure to send us a friend request.
