  • Make sure that you understand tires and what your vehicle needs

    Tire selection isn’t the easiest task, and most people don’t recognize how important they are for the safety when you drive. The whole tire nomenclature is a bit confusing and you often see people with worn out tires as they don’t understand what can happen when you drive with worn out tires.

They are used during the warm seasons when you are above 45 degrees Fahrenheit. The rubber compound used in these will harden once you go below this. You then have the tires that can be…

  • Passenger cars and SUVs both need premium winter tires

    There are a lot of differences between passenger cars and SUVs, where the SUVs are larger and heavier and tend to be safer vehicles according to crash and survival data. They do however both need to use winter tires or at least winter approved tires when driving in winter conditions. All-season tires are not intended for winter use and are therefore not approved for those conditions.

Winter tires have soft rubber compounds that allow them to stay flexible and agile in order to…

  • When to consider studded tires

    Studded tires should be considered if you live in an area that experiences lots of hardpacked snow and ice in the winter. This is because the main advantage of studded tires is the superior grip on icy and hard-packed snowy roads. The studded tires provide an additional level of grip because they are not just interacting with the road surface conditions; the studs penetrate frozen precipitation and dig in like miniature anchors. They also make a lot of sense if you live in an area with long winters like Alaska or in any of the seven States that allow unrestricted use of studded tires.  Studded tires are not allowed in…

  • Verschiedene Reifen Sind Wichtig Für Ihre Sicherheit

    Die Reifen sollten regelmäßig von Ihnen und manchmal auch von einem Fachmann auf Verschleißerscheinungen geprüft werden, wenn Sie sie wechseln oder zwischen Sommer- und Winterreifen wechseln. Sie müssen außerdem regelmäßig den Reifendruck prüfen, um sicherzustellen, dass die Reifen ausreichend Luft haben. Ein niedriger Luftdruck sorgt für eine vorzeitige Abnutzung der Reifen und für einen höheren Kraftstoffverbrauch. Prüfen Sie auch die Profiltiefe des Reifens, um sicherzustellen, dass sie mindestens 4 mm beträgt, weil die Eigenschaften des Reifens schlechter werden und weil Ihre Sicherheit beeinträchtigt wird, wenn die Profiltiefe unter 4 mm sinkt. Irgendwann kommt der Zeitpunkt, an dem Sie Ihre Autoreifen ersetzen müssen. Neue Reifen bieten mehr Sicherheit, ein besseres Fahrverhalten…

  • Quand utiliser des pneus crampons

    Si vous vivez dans une région des États-Unis où les hivers sont rigoureux et où il y a beaucoup de neige et de glace, vous devriez envisager d’acheter des pneus á crampons. En effet, le principal avantage des pneus crampons est l’adhérence supérieure sur les routes verglacées et enneigées. Les pneus crampons offrent un niveau d’adhérence supplémentaire car ils n’interagissent pas seulement avec l’état de la surface de la route ; les clous pénètrent dans la glace ou la neige puis s’enfoncent. Ceci étant dit, les pneus crampons ne sont pas autorisés dans tous les États, en fait, il n’y a que 6 États aux États-Unis qui autorisent les pneus…
