Tire Maintenance

How do you know if you need new tires?

Tire wear depends on several factors, including your driving style and tire maintenance habits. Wrong size load and speed rating can void your warranty. But one sure way to know when to replace your tires is when treadwear indicators appear. A tire's built-in treadwear indicators are "wear bars" that look like narrow strips of smooth rubber across the tread and appear when it's time to replace the tire.

You also need a new tire if:

Expand your knowledge on compression

Within the internal combustion engine, the compression ratio, as it’s known, is the piston’s movement as it squeezes the fuel/air mixture in the cylinder. BG Products know that sadly loss of compression over time is inevitable. So it's a good thing BG's got a product to restore and maintain peak compression! Adding BG EPR to the engine and letting it tick over for at least 15 minutes restores compression by dissolving the deposits that clog rings and seals.

Peak compression is a must

Save even more at the pump with Halsey's Auto Center

As gas prices continue to drop, motorists should take advantage of their savings at the pump and invest it back into their vehicles. By spending a little now to increase fuel efficiency, drivers can multiply fuel savings and save more money at the pump.

The national average of the cost of a gallon of gas has been above $3 since 2010 but is expected to dip below that mark this year, according to a recent forecast by energy information service GasBuddy.com.

Losing Pressure

Your tires support the weight of your vehicle, right? Well they don't! It's the air pressure inside them that actually supports the weight. Maintaining sufficient air pressure is required if your tires are to provide all of the handling, traction and durability of which they are capable.

However, you can't set tire pressure...and then forget about it! Tire pressure has to be checked periodically to assure that the influences of time, changes in ambient temperatures or a small tread puncture have not caused it to change.
