Summer is Here

Summer is Here

Its beginning to feel a lot like summer. The time to go camping, go to the lake, go hiking, go to the beach, go off-roading, work on the ranch, going on a road trip, or just going just to go. This is also the time where many blowouts happen due to low tread levels, bulges in tires, and/or dry rot. It can never hurt to get your tires, brakes, suspension, under hood inspected before the road trip to get you the peace of mind while traveling down the road to your favorite fishing hole. 

How Tire Balancing and Mounting has Changed over the Years

Tire mounting and balancing has changed drastically over the last 10 years. Today, cars are coming with more luxurious wheels and lower profile tires verses 5, even 10 years ago where tires had some more rubber to eliminate many of the road vibrations. Today, a standard wheel balance is no longer considered a "proper wheel balance" as many times, there is still a road force vibration from the tire and even the wheel that can only be found while pressure is put to the wheel and tire such as when driving. The Hunter Road Force Balancer not only performs the standard wheel balancing, it also performs what is called Road Force Balance which applies pressure to the tire as if it were on the car and on the road and measures the stiffness between the tire and wheel. If it were out of specifications, it will then lead the certified technician to sit the tire in a particular spot with the wheel to eliminate the vibrations and then re-check. This sort of balancing is great for all the ... read more

Tire Anatomy

Tire Anatomy

   Ever wonder what the numbers on the side of your tire mean? As seen on the graphic, the first letter, “P” in this case stands for passenger car tire, on some light duty trucks you will see “LT” before the number. That tells the technician that the tire has either a 6-ply cord in the tire or a 10-ply cord designed for heavy duty and can carry a certain amount of weight. The first number in the graphic shows 215 which is the width of the tire tread from shoulder to shoulder where it meets the road. The following number “60” is the “Aspect Ratio” and that percentage is taken from the tire width and how high or low the tire is made from the wheel to the tread. The next letter is in most cases “R” which means this tire is a radial tire that does not need a tube inside the tire to hold the air, you will also see “T”, “ZR” for examples showing that the tire is made for a different purpose. The num ... read more

TPMS Light

TPMS Light

Ever notice the yellow symbol with an exclamation mark in the middle pop on? What should I do? The light represents the Tire Pressure Monitoring System, or TPMS, it gauges the pressure of your tires and repeatedly sends a signal to the vehicle computer. The light and/or message will illuminate that one or more tires have lost air pressure and will need to be checked and adjusted. It is best to visit a tire service center su​ch as Adams Tireworx which specialize in the TPMS system to check the tire pressures, adjust if necessary and inspect the tire for any possible puncture in the tire. What happens if the light stays on and the driver doesn’t have the pressures checked? The tire will wear out unevenly and will damage both the shoulder treads of the tire but also the sidewall. It is important to immediately check the tire pressures and if one is drastically lower than the rest, it is recommended to put the spare tire on if available or call for a tow truck and have the tire repa ... read more

Dry Rot

Dry Rot

One of the most common reasons tires needs to be replaced is not usually because of the tread thickness. It is actually because of what is called, “dry rot”. As seen on the Michelin Tire on the left, dry rot are the cracks that occur from multiple reasons such as the age of the tire, constant exposure to the sun with a lack of use will drastically increase the chances of cracks in the tires.  There are ways to prevent it, have the tires covered if left outdoors, do not leave the tires resting in mud that dries up later and do not leave the tires resting on hot concrete during the summers without driving every so often.                      What should you do if you noticed that your tires have dry rot? You should have them inspected by a service technician immediately as it is in most cases not safe to drive on. Once the cracks reach the cords, the heat over time ... read more

Dangers of Used Tires

There are many reasons why you should not put used tires on your vehicle. First reason is that it is not the safest tire. Many states are now beginning to ban or implement legislation as to what is considered a “sellable used tire”. The Rubber Manufacturers Association (RMA) and Tire Industry Association (TIA) over the past few years have been purchasing used tires from tire stores across the country and found that each tire had some sort of minor or major issues such as excessive wear, severe dry rot and improper repairs. Another concern of buying used tires is that the tires could have been recalled and other damages might have been missed during the inspection that can cause accidents. Every tire that is sold used is void of all warranties and tire registrations so if the tire is recalled, the owner of the used tire will not be notified, and the recall would not apply to the used tire. Another reason to put into consideration, one will end up paying more for a used tir ... read more
