Says Mac Demere of Popular Mechanics, "Tires are arguably the most important component on your vehicle. They are, however, among the least understood features. Allow me to list and pop a few common misconceptions about tires."
When you buy your quality used tires from Salisbury Salvage, these pointers will help you take care of them to enjoy the optimum, safest tire life possible.
1. Know that the tire-pressure monitoring system (TPMS) is intended as a last-minute warning before imminent tire failure, "not as a monitor to make sure your tires are properly inflated".
2. Slightly higher than recommended tire pressure improves hydroplaning resistance.
3. When replacing only two tires, the new ones go on the rear, not the front., whether you own a front-, rear- or all-wheel-drive car, truck, or SUV.
4. The "max press" number has nothing to do with a tire's burst pressure. The "max press" and "max load" numbers indicate the pressure at which the tire will carry the maximum amount of weight.
5. The short sidewalls of low-profile tires enhance the tires' response when the driver first turns the steering wheel. That gives the driver the (often false) feeling the tire has tons of grip. But after that initial movement, it's the tread compound—the stickiness of the rubber—that determines how well the tire grips the road. Also, the combination of a large-diameter wheel and low-profile tire is usually heavier than the original equipment. This means the suspension may not be able to keep the tire in touch with the pavement.
