The Monster Behind the City Pothole

March 1st, 2014

by: Rick Benson

 

Spring is the peak of pothole season, and no one is immune to their sneaky destruction. Day to day, everyone runs into this monster known as the pothole. They wait until the last second to sneak up on an innocent driver, and then it’s too late. These little road gremlins stalk their pray with their dips, bumps, and sharp edges, waiting to get a grip on your tires.  They can cause damages from misalignment to a blown tire. While potholes are the tire’s sworn enemy, they aren’t going away any time soon.

The best way to defeat any enemy is to know the enemy. These little demons are initially made in the winter. Roads will freeze and thaw. This causes erosion of the dirt beneath the asphalt and diminishes the strength of the pavement. With additional traffic adding onto the erosion, the road begins to crumble and break. Craters then begin to form over time into something we know as the pothole.

How to Know the Age of Your Tire

February 1st, 2014

How old are your tires?

If you ever make the decision to buy used tires or return a tire you purchased, knowing the age of your tire can become useful.

Tires normally deteriorate with the wear of normal use. When you buy used tires, you are aware that they have been put up for a certain time period. Although they aren’t worn, the age is just as dangerous. The rubber in tires breaks down with age due to UV and environmental exposure. Age can leave your tires brittle and your sidewalls damaged. Both of these factors can lead to eventual dysfunction and failure of your tires.

Check Engine Lightby: Rick Benson

 

When your car's "Check Engine" light comes on, it's usually accompanied by a sinking feeling in the pit of your stomach. The light could mean a costly problem, like a bad catalytic converter, or it could be something minor, like a loose gas cap. But in many cases, it means at minimum that you'll be visiting your mechanic to locate the malfunction and get the light turned off.
