You get behind the wheel, put the key in the ignition, your car starts and it takes you where you want to go. Tire Coupon in Mirimar FL

You do it every day and it's so routine that you tend to take it for granted. People tend to take their tires for granted, too, and you'd be surprised at some of the thoroughly worn-out tires we see on customers' cars from time to time. Driving on worn-out tires can be a big mistake, though. Not only are worn tires in much greater danger of failing and leaving you by the side of the road,  they're downright dangerous on wet pavement, and that poor traction is also hazardous if you ever have to make a panic stop or other emergency maneuver. 

That's totally aside from the added noise, ...[more]

April 28th, 2016

You’re driving along and suddenly you hear a bang, or you feel the vehicle start to drive a little funny, and next thing you know you hear the “flap flap flap” that means a flat tire. Or, you come out to the parking lot after work to find that one rim is resting on the ground after your tire has lost its air.

You want to get the most out of your tire dollars, so do you repair or replace that flat one?

That all depends on the type of damage to the tire. Often when a tire fails at highway speed, it can result in a tire that’s too shredded or otherwise damaged to have any hope of an effective repair. If you’re lucky, though, maybe the puncture is just on the tread surface. A nail hole or puncture that’s up to ¼” in size can usually be repaired using an internal patch and a special cement.

Your tires are an investment. Even a relatively cheap set of tires can easily run $500 or more, after disposal fees, taxes and installation. Unfortunately, they’re Tires in Hollywood FLalso an investment that is constantly depreciating, so it just makes sense to try to get the most out of your money with a set of tires.

The good news is that even lower-priced tires are designed to last longer than they were a generation ago. At one time, bias-ply tires were only good for about 20,000 miles (a couple of years’ worth of driving!) and early radials were lucky to go 35-40,000 miles before wearing out. Now, with improvements in tire construction and tread formulations, it’s not at all unusual to get 60,000 miles out of a set of tires.

That’s only with the correct care and driving habits, however. These are all goo ...[more]
