There is no way to tell exactly how long a tire lasts. The lifespan and mileage of a tire depends of a combination of factors: its design, the driver’s habits, the climate, the road conditions and the care that’s put into the tires. Remember, tire pressure should be checked at least once a month. Monitoring tread depth will help ensure you’re receiving the proper level of traction and road-hugging performance as well as the ability to funnel water out from under the tire to reduce hydroplaning. Rotating your tires can even out wear rates based on the amount of weight that each tire carries on a vehicle.
Your vehicle’s brake system has one job – to stop your vehicle. But it takes several key components to deliver that singular end result. To bring a vehicle to a halt, three things are necessary: leverage, hydraulic force and friction. Leverage is supplied by the driver’s leg pressure and the brake pedal. The pedal is connected by levers and rods to the back of the power booster. The power booster uses either engine vacuum or a hydraulic pump to multiply and transfer the force of that leverage to the master cylinder.
WHEEL ALIGNMENT SERVICES
Wheel alignment is unique to each vehicle model. Manufacturers specify each of the numerous parameters, taking into account the steering and suspension systems, engine, and original tires.Even though today’s vehicles are better designed and more resistant to impact than in the past, hitting a pothole or curb, or frequently driving over speed bumps can cause the wheels to become misaligned. Poor alignment affects the car’s performance, causing the steering wheel to vibrate or the car pull to one side, forcing the driver to constantly correct course in order to keep moving in a straight line.Over time, poor wheel alignment can damage other parts and, in particular, can cause your tires to wear unevenly and faster than usual.
