Tire rotation

Tire rotation is one of the important auto maintenance tasks to do, and it’s very easy. Tire rotation can extend the life of your tires, help with gas mileage and ensure that your car handles the road condition. BINGO TIRES – Charlotte performs Tire rotation $18 for most cars.

tire rotation

Uneven wear can be the result of a mechanical problem with the car. If the tires aren’t aligned properly, some of the tires will tend to “drag” and wear poorly. Tires that are improperly inflated also wear unevenly. The key to avoid uneven tire wear is regularly moving each tire to a different corner of the car. This way, each tire experiences a variety of wear patterns over time, and wears out at the same rate as the other tires.

Tire rotation is recommended range from every 3,000 to 7,000 miles. As a rough estimate, rotating your tires every other time you change your oil should keep them wearing evenly. The exact rotation pattern depends on the vehicle and the tires themselves.

Simply move rights to the left and lefts to the right. If you have a full-size spare tire (that is, a real tire, not a small “donut” spare), you should include the spare in the rotation so all five tires wear evenly. Don’t overlook tire rotation. Just a few minutes of maintenance will keep your tires wearing evenly, improving your car’s handling and overall performance.

Tire rotation is the practice of swapping the front tires of a car with the back tires at regular intervals. The basic idea behind this is to extend the life of the tires by allowing more even treadwear. Some specialty tire manufacturers do not recommend the practice for their customers, but most cars benefit from it. Some tire stores even include tire rotation as part of their service contract.

Size matters when it comes to tires…!

BINGO TIRES & AUTO REPAIRS

4026 N.Tryon St, Charlotte

(980) 207-2732

We like to display and share with our customers this concern and its answers based on variety of opinions:

 

Q-it’s not a huge deal to get a lower aspect tire, say a 60 versus a 65, but does it really matter if wheel width is an extra 10 millimeters wide?

A-if their is nothing the tire can rub while turned all the way, and with the strut compacted, then you should be fine.

A-if it were a new car you might be concerned about voiding warranties.

A-10 mm is simply that much more rubber on the surface … and surface contact leads to better stability and traction … thus, perhaps, more safety!

 

http://www.goodyear.com

A-Should be OK. When I have upped the width, I lower the aspect ratio so that the rolling radius and circumference is the same. This preserves the intended design geometry, the biggest effect on a front-drive car would be scrub radius which will effect steering pull under braking. I went to 195-60 from a 185-65 I think. The car spec originally had 175-70s but for the new 195s, user feedback said they ran very narrow for their size so I upped two sizes and they were right. As I recall, http://www.tirerack.com used to list the specs for the tires they sell. Check your speed and odometer using a measured mile and a stopwatch, if it is way off you might want to return them. Sometimes a larger tire is a good move, but sometimes the tire place has more of them in stock so they push them. A 195 will wear better, have slightly more rolling resistance, but to preserve the same section height you will need a slightly lower section profile, as section height (60, 65) is the percent of section width.

A-Over a 1% error is going to cause problems with the computers, I would think, both engine and maybe with braking calculations.

A-i always go to a bigger tire on my vehicles, it usually takes away from my gas mileage, and maybe a little rougher ride,makes my odometer off by a few miles per hr , but i like the extra height and width.

A-you can’t be serious. Width has nothing to do with the amount of “rubber” in contact with the road. Contact on the road is determined by the weight on the tire and the PSI of the air in the tire.

PSI X surface contact = total weight. Try taking 4 pieces of paper and sliding them up tight to the rubber in contact with the road on all 4 sides of the tread area. Then measure the actual square inches in contact with the road. now measure the air in the tire. multiply those together and save the #. Do all 4 tires and add the final tally…….you will have the weight of the car.

wider tires will change nothing.

A-Unless the slightly wider tire rubs on something, it won’t make any significant difference IMHO. The change in type of tire and rubber compound will make far more difference than the additional 10mm of width. It might be very slightly better, as Brad says, but it isn’t much of a change. I wouldn’t worry about it.

A-The car nuts here at work always go for wider tires for better cornering performance. They’ll generally take the widest tires that will fit without rubbing. There don’t seem to be negative consequences unless you care about gas mileage, and the car nuts only care about performance. I don’t think 10mm will make any difference, as long as they don’t rub anywhere. Even gas mileage should not be impacted very much.

Whoever coined the term “all-season tire”in the late 1970s probably wasn’t trying to mislead tire buyers. Instead, they were trying to play catch-up with Goodyear’s hugely successful Tiempo, a tire that was wonderful “for all seasons, for all year,” according to its TV jingle


Still, near-universal confusion sprung from the name all-season. Most people have the mistaken belief that all-season tires are better in spring showers and fall rains than regular tires. (Regular tires have become known as summer or, more accurately, three-season tires.) I’ve found many tire-company employees, automaker engineers, and car writers who don’t know the correct answer, either. 

Here’s the truth: “All-season” doesn’t mean the tire has great performance in all seasons. It means that the tire is a compromise—the designer traded wet grip to gain some mobility in snow, give drivers tires that could provide adequate year-round performance, and save them the trouble of changing their tires before and after the winter. 

But “some mobility in snow” is not the same thing as “good grip in snow.” The snow traction of all-season tires varies from great to almost none. And an all-season tire has less damp-road grip than an otherwise equal summer tire from the same manufacturer. So winter is the only season when an all-season tire offers more traction than a summer tire. If you live where it never snows, the three-season regular tire always holds the

How to Get Your Car Ready for Fall

Fall Vehicle Maintenance Checklist: be prepared!

  1. Check your oil level, and add oil if necessary; it’s even better if you perform an oil and lube job. Be sure to use a multi-grade viscosity oil for winter driving.
  2. Test your battery for free at any of our auto parts stores. If it needs to be replaced, Advance Auto Parts will install the new battery for no extra fee.
  3. Inspect your windshield wipers. Bitter cold, snow and ice are hard on their rubber blades. You can find blades designed for winter at Advance Auto Parts stores. We’ll install those for free, too.
  4. Fill your windshield wiper reservoir with the proper type of windshield fluid for your climate.
  5. Look at the level and condition of your engine coolant. If the level is low, add antifreeze. If the condition looks poor, do a flush-and-fill.
  6. Evaluate your belts and hoses. If you see any evidence of fraying, cracking or leaking, get a new belt or hose immediately.
  7. Consider getting a tune-up, especially if it’s been 30,000 miles or so since your last one. At the least, perform a visual inspection of your spark plugs, wires, distributor cap and rotor.
  8. Make sure your tires are properly inflated. When dealing with sloppy or icy road conditions, you’ll need the best traction your tires can deliver. If your tires are worn, replace them before winter arrives.
  9. Apply high-grade car wax to your vehicle’s exterior to help protect it from the possible onslaught of snow, ice, sleet and freezing rain.
  10. Put together a winter car survival kit. Jumper cables, flares, ice scrapers, road salt, flashlights, flares, blankets, first aid materials and snacks are all good to include in your kit.

How to change a flat tire

Once you notice your vehicle has a flat tire, if you are driving, you need to pull over immediately. Be safe and Find a flat, stable place to change your tire. You need a solid, level surface that will restrict the car from rolling. If you are near a road, park as far from traffic as possible and turn on your emergency flashers (hazard lights). Avoid soft ground and hills.g This makes it safer when you jack up your car. If you are in Charlotte NC, come to BINGO TIRES, will be delighted to help you especially we are OPEN 7 days/ week.

Now you need to locate the following tools in your car and get ready to change a car tire:

–          lug wrench

–          jack

–          and spare tire.

http://www.goodyear.com/en-US/services/tire-care/fix-a-flat-tire

 

Steps for changing a flat car tire:

Apply the parking brake and put car into “Park” position. If you have a standard transmission, put your vehicle in first or reverse.

-Remove the hubcap off the wheel “if you have one”

-Undo the lug nuts using your lug wrench but don’t remove them yet. When loosening the nuts, you’ll need to turn them counter clockwise

-Placing the jack underneath your car, make sure it’s resting on a sturdy part of the frame of your car

-Start cranking it up until your car is high enough off the ground to remove the flat tire

-Remove the lugnuts and the flat tire

-Replace your spare tire, slide it on, and screw the nuts back on and make them slightly tight

-Now Lower the car to the ground fully and remove the jack. Finish tightening the nuts and replace the hubcap

Put the old tire in your trunk and take it to BINGO TIRES. Get an estimate for the cost of repair. Small punctures can usually be repaired for less than $15. If the tire is not repairable, we can dispose of it properly and sell you a replacement New Tires or Used Tires.

Although it sounds simple but not everyone wants to change a car tire on their own and remember not to ride on a spare tire for too long, it’s only a temporary replacement. In fact, you can only go about 70 miles and up to 55 mph on a spare tire.

When buying used tires in Charlotte, NC.

What to look for when buying used tires !

When buying used tires in Charlotte, NC. and budget doesn’t allow the purchase of a new set of tires, looking into purchasing a used set of car tires is a good idea. The good news is that it is possible to buy good quality used tires if you simply know what to look for and what questions to ask. You should focus on the tread, general condition, and cost for each tire in the set.

imagesCACTD4ON

The tread on any set of auto tires is extremely important. Since new tires tend to have a full and unblemished amount of tread, most people give this aspect little attention other than possibly considering the design of the tread. However, with used tires, you want to focus less on the design and more on the amount of tread that remains on each tire in the set. Many municipalities have guidelines in place for the depth of tread that is considered safe on local roads. Know what that depth is and do not settle for anything less.

Life cycle of a tire

Along with making sure there is sufficient tread on the tire, also pay attention to the evenness of wear to the tread on each tire in the set. Avoid used tires where the tread is deeper at some points and noticeably thinner in others. Go for vehicle tires where the wear on the tread is even. You will be much more satisfied with both the performance and the life of tires with even tread than with tires with uneven tire tread.

While some people will tell you that it is okay to run used tires with different tread patterns, don’t believe it. Your ride will be smoother and the wear on the tires will be more even over time if you go with four tires that have the same tread pattern. Unless money is so tight that you have to go with odd treads, do yourself a favor and make sure they all match in terms of the tread.

imagesCAO62YC3

Along with the tread, take a look at the sides of the tires. Make sure the sidewalls appear sturdy and there are no signs of puncture marks or other indications that the surface of the tire has been compromised in some manner. While you cannot reasonably expect the sidewalls to look brand new, it is not out of the question to obtain used tires that have obviously been maintained properly. This will mean that you are much more likely to get excellent service from the pre-owned tires.

photo[1] (3)used tires

There is the chance that someone will tell you that going with recapped tires is a better option than used tires. While there are many recapped tires that are of excellent quality, it is important to remember that recaps essentially have a layer that is bound to the surface of a tire. They will hold up well in many different types of road conditions. However, a set of used tires with plenty of tread left will protect you from the small chance of the recapping coming loose while operating the vehicle.

Charlotte Roadside Tire Flat

Keep in mind that many garages and tire retailers keep a selection of good quality used tires on hand. Many of these are tires that were traded in when customers purchased new sets of tires. The vendor will often hold onto tires that have a significant amount of tread on them and offer them for sale at prices that are as much as eighty percent less than new tires. Always ask to see which tires are available in the size you need. There is a good chance you will see something that is ideal for your needs as well as within your budget to purchase.

Donut Spare Tire?

For How Long Can You Drive On a Donut Spare Tire?

A donut spare tire is the name given to the small spare tire that is kept in the car for emergency use. These tires are not meant to be used for long term, and should be replaced with a full-sized tire as soon as possible. There are differences between a regular spare tire and a donut spare tire. A regular spare tire is sized to match the car’s other tires. A donut spare tire is a temporary tire to be used until you can replace the original tire.

sweetdonut

For How Long Can I Drive With A “Donut” Spare?

Donut spare tires are not made for extended service. They have no tread to speak of; the carcass or body of the tire is not reinforced and there is no tread belt to protect it from projectiles and road imperfections. The tire is designed simply to get you to a repair facility. Most of these tires offer a maximum life of 70 miles.

Do Donut Spares Affect The Braking Or Suspension System?

You may notice poor cornering, handling, and braking characteristics. The donut spare has a smaller footprint than a conventional tire, which translates into diminished braking and handling. With the donut spare in place, you may find that, when braking, the vehicle dips to the side where the donut was mounted. Also, you may notice the vehicle pulling to that side.

donut

Why Do Carmakers Put These Spare Tires In Cars?

The use of donut spares is a cost and space cutting measure. Typically the donut spare takes up much less space and is cheaper to manufacture than full size tires and wheels, which translates into more profit for the car makers. It’s quite a compromise and a loss for the consumer.

Can I Put A Full Size Spare On My Car?

Yes, but the question is: where do you carry and stow it? Years ago, cars had spare tire wells to fit the full size spare so that it was out of the way. This space has been eliminated in order to produce smaller cars (and increased profits for the carmakers). Looks like we’re stuck with donut spares. What’s worse is that many new cars are doing away with spare tires altogether, opting for run-flat tires. But that’s a topic for another day.

What is maximum speed for a spare donut tire?

45-50 mph.

Where Can I get and Buy a spare donut tire?

BINGO is one of Charlotte best shops for the Top Quality name brand tires and the extraordinary customer service that is second to none! BINGO works with the top wholesalers offering our customers best deals on name brand tires. BINGO also offers best selections of used tire that like new and fits everyone’s budget with best condition and prices start from $35 including installation for most cars. BINGO carry several spare tires and donut.

A good set of tires has always made a big difference in safety, fuel economy and handling, but one area that is getting new attention is the quality of tires to reduce or increase the amount of noise a vehicle makes. Tire manufacturers are racing to develop tires that reduce noise, aiming to meet tough new standards mandated by European and Asian nations that want to reduce noise pollution.
