What do those numbers on your tires represent?

How to read the model and size on a car tire

 

 

What do those numbers on your tires represent?

The numbers in the tire size refer to its width, aspect ratio, and wheel diameter. "185/75R14" means the tire is 185 mm wide, has an aspect ratio (that is, the width divided by the height) of 75%, and fits on a 14" rim.

"R" means radial tire. They're all radials nowadays. Speed ratings are usually inserted before the "R." The most common speed ratings are HR (good for 130mph), VR (149 mph), and ZR (more than 149 mph).

 

 

 


Use Your Spare Time to Check Your Tires
 

According to a national survey conducted by the Rubber Manufacturers Association, only 17 percent of drivers are considered “tire smart” and know the correct way to check their tire pressure.


“Underinflated tires are under stress and will eventually wear unevenly, making them a safety hazard, not to mention an added expense since the worn out tires will have to be replaced sooner,” said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council. “Properly inflated tires will not only help keep you safe on the road, but will improve gas mileage and performance.”


The Car Care Council recommends that vehicle owners check the pressure of all tires, including the spare, on a monthly basis and more often during colder weather. Tires should be inflated to recommended pressure levels, rotated every 6,000 miles to promote uniform tire wear and be replaced if worn or damaged.


The penny test is a popular and simple way to check tire tread. If you see Lincoln’s head above the tread, then it is time for new tires. In addition, the tread should be checked for un-even or irregular wear as well as cuts or bruises along sidewalls.


“Tires are such an important safety issue that you can’t take their condition lightly,” continued White. “Routinely checking tire balance and wheel align-ment will reduce tire wear and improve handling.”

JEEP TIRES

Although many Jeep tires are made specifically for driving off road, many also handle beautifully on the highway. Your new Jeep tires can look good too no matter where you are, and they definitely give your vehicle a more rugged look.

Tires should always be a big decision in the life of any vehicle owner. That is because whatever vehicle that you put them on is going to be carrying life inside of it. That life could literally depend on the tires that the vehicle has. This is especially true when you are off road. Most of the time when we are off road, we are also truly off the grid. That is because we are out of an area where there is cell service and miles away from Lake Havasu City or the nearest road or town. If something happens to your tires when you are in the desert or wilderness, you may be stuck. So buying tires is truly an truly important decision.

Tire Rotation

Description: Tire rotation refers to the regular practice of switching the position of each tire on the car.

 

Purpose: Tire rotation helps to equalize tread wear and is critical to gain the maximum life from your tire investment.

 

Maintenance Tips/Suggestions: Refer to your owner's manual for the recommended rotation interval and pattern; generally a rotation interval of 6,000 miles is recommended. The rotation pattern varies with different makes and models, which shows the tire locations during rotation. Some vehicles have different size tires on the front and back or directional tires. This limits the locations that a tire may take on the vehicle. When in doubt, check the owner's manual or consult one of our professional technician for guidance. Tire rotation time also offers a good opportunity to have the tires and wheels balanced. It's another step you can take to maximize your tire investment.

TPMS - Tire Pressure Monitoring System

As part of the effort to increase awareness of the need to maintain proper tire pressure, the U.S. government has taken steps to make it easier for drivers to be aware of potentially unsafe low pressure in their tires. As of the 2008 model year, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) now requires that all passenger cars and light trucks feature the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS). In conjunction with the new requirements, the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers (AAM) has initiated a consumer safety campaign focusing on the importance of maintaining proper tire pressure.

 

We service Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems (TPMS)

TPMS is an automated system that monitors the air pressure in a vehicle's tires. Lake Havasu TiresWhen air pressure in one or more tires drops 25 percent or more below the correct pressure, a warning indicator alerts the driver. TPMS typically delivers these alerts to the driver through one of two types of warning lights on the dashboard.

 

1. The first uses the official TPMS symbol, which is a cross-section of a tire with an exclamation mark in the center.Best Tires in Havasu

2. The second is a top-view graphic image of a car that indicates which tires are low.


Tire pressure is monitored through one of two methods: direct or indirect. Direct TPMS monitors the actual air pressure inside each tire via a sensor mounted within the tire. Indirect TPMS measures tire pressure by monitoring the speed and rotation of each individual wheel. When a significant variation in speed and rotation is detected in one or more wheels when compared with the others, it is often an indication of underinflation. This information is then transmitted to the vehicle's on-board computer, and the driver is alerted.

 

Tire Pressure Monitoring System

However, while TPMS systems offer increased safety to drivers through low pressure warnings, they are not meant to be a substitute for proper tire pressure maintenance.
