Ways to extend tire life

BINGO TIRES keeping you as safe on the road as possible while saving you money.

1. APPLY A LITTLE PRESSURE

Correct tire pressure affects safety, durability and fuel consumption. Proper inflation alone can extend the average life of a tire by 4,700 miles and save motorists up to 11 cents per gallon according to SaferCar.gov. Improper tire inflation can lead to uneven and accelerated tire wear, structural damage, tire failure, and poor gas mileage – Goodyear tire guide.

SaferCar.gov studies show just 19 percent of consumers properly check and inflate their tires and one in four cars has at least one tire that is significantly underinflated. Here’s the tire inflation checklist:

  • Check the pressure of all tires, including the spare, at least once a month when the tires are “cold” (when the car hasn’t been driven for at least three hours) and before long trips. This will keep the vehicle driving smoothly and evenly.
  • Inflate tires to the vehicle manufacturer’s recommendations printed on the Tire and Loading Information Label on the driver’s side door edge or in the vehicle owner’s manual.
  • Keep a tire pressure gauge in the vehicle in case you hit a pothole or curb, as that can cause a tire to suddenly lose pressure.

2. TREAD CAREFULLY

Tire tread provides the gripping action and traction that prevents a vehicle from slipping and sliding, so it is essential to check it once a month to ensure safe driving.

Legally tires are not safe and should be replaced when the tread is worn down to 2/32 of an inch. However,Consumer Reports recommends replacing your tire when 4/32 of an inch remains. To check this, find the built-in treadwear indicators on the tire. When the tread is worn down so it’s level with the indicators, it’s time to replace the tires. You can also check your tread with a penny. With Lincoln’s head upside down and facing you, slide it into a tread groove. If you can see the top of Lincoln’s head, it’s time to replace your tires.

3. STRAIGHTEN UP

Keep tires balanced and aligned. Tire balancing ensures your wheels rotate properly and don’t cause the vehicle to vibrate. Vibrations can damage the tire and become a safety hazard on the road. New tires should always be balanced when installed and if you begin to feel them shake have them inspected immediately.

Have the wheel alignment checked on all four wheels at the intervals spelled out in the owner’s manual and after any serious pothole bump. It must also be done when new tires are installed. Visually, you can check your tires for uneven wear as this can indicate problems with either alignment or inflation.

4. TURN THE WHEELS

Rotating your tires frequently helps reduce irregular wear. Check the owner’s manual for information on how frequently to do this and for the best pattern of rotation. Ideally, tires should be rotated every 5,000 to 8,000 miles – or sooner if uneven wear appears.

5. A TIRE FOR ALL SEASONS

Remove your winter tires as soon as the cold, wet weather is over and switch to summer tires. The extra slits and pliable rubber that make winter tires great at handling ice and snow are the same things that make them wear down more quickly on cleared roads.

N.C. State Inspection

What is N.C. State Inspection? Vehicle inspection is a procedure mandated by national or subnational governments in many countries, in which a vehicle is inspected to ensure that it conforms to regulations governing safety, emissions, or both. Inspection can be required at various times, e.g., periodically or on the transfer of title to a vehicle.

The cost of inspection fee at the station is:

Safety Only: $13.60

Emission & Safety $30.00

What will cause you to fail a car inspection? The most common causes of a failed emissions tests include: Rich air-fuel mixture. This might be due to malfunctioning injectors or a faulty oxygen sensor, so youshould make sure these components work properly before you take your vehicle forinspection. … Defects in the evaporative emission control system (EVAP).

What do they do in a car inspection? A safety inspection checks to make sure that all of your car’s lights are in good working order. Beyond headlights, this also includes your high beams, emergency flashers (front and back), turn signals (front and back), side lights, brake lights and backup lights.

Can car pass inspection with check engine light on? It is true that your car will not pass inspection if the check engine light is on. However there is more to it than simply turning it off. … Usually if your check engine light is on that means you need some repair work done on your car but that is not always the case.

How About Used Tires?

Normally, used tires last 2-5 years if bought in adequate condition. A 2-year-old tire with no damage, patches, uneven wear, and with about 8/32” tread left, may last for good 5 years. A 4-year-old tire with 5/32” tread left, and without any significant plugs or cuts, may last a further 2 years. The lifespan of a used tire is extremely unpredictable, so any calculations are only estimates. The tire’s condition greatly depends on a number of factors.

* Age: Any tire of 5 years or older has to be fully diagnosed every year and changed once deep cracks appear on its sidewalls or tread.

* Treadwear: Used tires may have up to 10/32” tread available, which is more than 90% of a new tire. Used tires last to 2/32”.

* Damage and Repairs: The most frequent damage need attention are cuts, holes, and cracks.

* Maintenance: Both prior and future maintenance are crucial to how long used tires last. However, the necessary processes are the same:

  • Tire balance
  • Tire rotation
  • Wheel alignment.

How to Make Used Tires Last Longer

There are some things you can do to prolong the life of your used tires. These are:

  • Check air pressure regularly.
    Some people recommend to check tire pressure every 3,000 miles, others insist on doing it weekly. It depends on the roads you drive on and the symptoms your tires have. For example, if you notice a tire loses air slowly yet faster than the others, check the pressure more often.
    Proper inflation will improve your fuel efficiency by up to 3%. Nowadays, checking the inflation rate isn’t difficult, due to the Tire Pressure Monitoring System. It’s required on all vehicles manufactured after 2007.

  • Rotate your tires.
    To make your used tires last longer, make sure you rotate them every 5,000-8,000 miles. Also, look at the tires thoroughly while rotating, as there may be minor damage that could become a serious issue. Remember to choose the right rotation pattern for the tires, depending on whether they are directional and same-sized.
  • Balance your tires.
    Balance the tires every 3,000-6,000 miles, depending on how fast the tread wears. With time, weight distribution around the tire changes, requiring a new balance. It’s important to provide balance, to avoid vehicle vibration and other connected issues.
  • Don’t expose your tires to UV and ozone excessively.
    Some exposure is inevitable, but make sure you control the climate in your garage, to make the used tires last longer. Storing tires in a cool dark place, in special tire totes, will help prolong their life. When not at home, make sure you park the car in shade.
  • Wash your tires.
    Follow special techniques and rules of tire cleaning to achieve the best results. The easiest way to clean your tires is to change the water every time you wash or rinse one tire. Another rule is to dry clean them first and then apply water. Keep in mind, some cleaning substances promote tire drying, so make sure you choose the appropriate cleaners.

Best Tire Brands

Which Brands Make the Best Tires?

When it comes to tire recommendations, there are several brands that regularly rise to the top. To determine how the leaders truly compare, we calculated a brand score by averaging the overall scores of the tested models for each brand (the scale ranges from 0 to 100).

This data come from our extensive tire test program, which provides detailed ratings on 176 tire models from more than 25 brands.

The tires factored into these scores come from all rated categories, including all-season and performance all-season car tires, ultra-high-performance (UHP) all-season and UHP summer tires, all-season and all-terrain truck tires, winter/snow car and truck tires, and performance winter/snow tires.

We excluded tire brands if we tested fewer than four of their tires. The final scores here reveal just how competitive the market is, with little difference among the leaders. It’s important for tire shoppers to understand how the tires rank in a given category and to consider how a tire model performs. (Learn how to choose the right tires for your car.)

Consumer Reports tests more than 50 tire models every year—for cars, SUVs, and trucks—putting them through their paces in up to 14 tests. Most tests are conducted by an expert team at our 327-acre Auto Test Center in Connecticut.

We test braking on ice at a local rink, and an outside lab assesses tire rolling resistance, which affects fuel economy. We evaluate tread life by driving thousands of miles on a road course in western Texas and use that information, along with the price we paid for the tire, to estimate the cost per 100 miles.

Our tests measure performance in braking, comfort, handling, hydroplaning, noise, snow traction, and other important areas. Plus, we can predict the tread life in miles based on our extensive treadwear test program. This combined information can help you find the best tires for your car from brands including BFGoodrichBridgestoneContinentalCooperDunlopFalkenFirestoneGeneralGoodyearGT  RadialHankookKumhoMichelinNexenNittoNokianPirelliSumitomoToyoUniroyal, and Yokohama.

Find the Best Tires for Your Car

Buying guide hero image

Find the Best Tires for Your

When the rubber meets the road, tread life is one of the most important things to consider while shopping for tires.

All-Season Tires

All-season tires come in sizes to fit everything from small cars to light-duty SUVs and pickups (and they come standard on many sedans and minivans). They are the most popular type of tire and are designed to handle most conditions, including dry and wet pavement and light to moderate snow.

Performance All-Season Tires

Performance all-season tires provide year-round grip tuned for enthusiastic driving. They are a step up from regular all-season tires, and they place more emphasis on handling, though the trade-off tends to be shorter tread life.

Ultra-High-Performance All-Season Tires

All-season ultra-high-performance tires are commonly fitted to upscale sedans or sporty vehicles. These tires deliver high levels of dry and wet grip and handling but give up some light-duty winter traction.

Ultra-High-Performance Summer Tires

Summer UHP tires are not intended for cold weather and won’t grip in snowy or icy conditions. And like all-season ultra-high-performance tires these tires deliver the ultimate dry and wet grip and handling.

All-Season Truck Tires

These tires are commonly used on SUVs and light-duty pickups. They are designed to handle most conditions, including dry and wet pavement and light to moderate snow.

All-Terrain Truck Tires

All-terrain models differ from all-season tires in that they have a more aggressive tread pattern intended for use on-road and in moderate off-road conditions.

Winter/Snow Tires

Winter tires have a tread with more biting edges for better grip on snow and ice than all season tires, and many have a softer rubber compound that remains flexible in extremely cold temperatures.

Performance Winter/Snow Tires

Performance winter tires have higher levels of snow and ice grip and keep some of the handling and cornering capabilities of the performance tires they replace, but they’re not always as good as all-season tires on dry and wet pavement and tend to wear out faster.

Winter/Snow Truck Tires

Truck winter/snow tires are specifically designed for pickups and SUVs. Like car winter/snow tires, always use truck winter/snow tires in a set of four for optimum grip to go, stop, and corner.  But on cleared roads they might not grip as well as all-season tires, and they tend to wear more quickly.

Tires Buying Guide

Despite advances in longer-lasting tires, actual tread life will vary by car type, tire type, driving aggressiveness, and even road and weather conditions. You still need to replace your tires a few times or more throughout the life of a typical vehicle.
