A: You can get 2% better gas mileage using the correct grade of oil . Changing a dirty air filter can increase your mileage by another 4% .

Q: What about the fuel injection system on my vehicle?
A: In 1980 , fuel injection largely replaced the carburetor for optimum air-fuel mixture . This resulted in greater fuel efficiency and less air pollution. However, your fuel injection system needs to be cleaned periodically to maximize fuel economy and reduce harmful emissions.

Q: Is there anything I can do to get better gas mileage with an old car?

Q: How often should I check the air in my tires?
A: For safety and maximum service life of the tires, check the air pressure in your tires at least once a month. Use a meter to accurately determine tire pressure. Do not fill your tires just by looking. Each time you take the car to Tires & More, your tires are thoroughly inspected and our technicians will show you how they are doing. We will be happy to check and fill your tires for free any time you are in the neighborhood.

Q: How much air should I put in my tires ?
A: The recommended pressure varies greatly, depending on size and type. Consult your owner's manual. The specifications of the original tires are also listed on the decal under the driver's door or inside the glovebox. If you buy a set of spare tires, be sure to note the new specifications.

Q: How I can protect the risk of blowouts?
A: The best protection against blowouts is properly inflated tires. Do not let them stay too soft or too full. Also, be sure to select a tire that is designed to handle the driving conditions.

Q: How I can get more mileage out of my tires?
A: Check the tire pressure regularly, rotate your tires, and check for signs of uneven wear too, as this could mean alignment problems.

Q: How often should I rotate my tires?
A: Every 6000 miles or every 2 oil changes, assuming you change the oil every 3,000 miles .

Q: Why buy winter tires ?
A: Winter tires, also known as snow tires, are designed for superior traction on ice, sleet, and snow. Rubber winter tires are formulated to maintain the elasticity and grip in temperatures below 45 degrees. Standard radial tires harden at these temperatures and lose some of their grip on the road. In addition, winter treads are designed with special snow patterns . Look for the snowflake or mountain for maximum confidence in winter driving .

Q: How do I know when I need new tires?
A: When the tread is worn to 4 /32 inch, your car can start losing significant traction on wet roads or snow. performing a penny test, face down in the grooves of the tread at several points is a useful indicator. We have a brief description of the penny test on our Tire Overview Page. Safer tires pass the penny test with a minimum depth of 2/32 of an inch. Many manufacturers place wear bars in the grooves between the treads . When the tread is almost even with the bar , it's time to change tires.

 
Q: Why is the tread depth so important to the safety and handling of tires ?
 
A: On wet pavement, the side grooves direct sluice water away from the tire which contacts the road. A new typical passenger tire has a tread depth of 10/32 of an inch. When the tread wears down to even half that depth, it increases the risk that your car will hydroplane--sliding on the surface of the water--especially water at highway speeds. In the snow covered pavement, horizontal steps and small slits in the tire called " lamellae " bite the snow. The deeper the tread, the greater adhesion.

Q: How I can find quality replacement tires for my vehicle ?

A: Come Tires & More. We will recommend the right tires depending on the wheel size, make and model of the vehicle, the load expected, how you drive, and other factors. We have tires ready for you.

Q: What tires should I buy?
A: Tire size and other important information are printed on the tire sidewall.


Q: How I can use the Grade Uniform Tire Quality ( UTQG ) to make an informed tire purchase ?
A: The scores for grade tires are designed to provide a simple way for you to compare tires. Ratings, printed on the tire sidewall , are based on tests under controlled conditions. The federal government specifies the tests, but manufacturers assign traction and temperature.

Q: I'm taking my car over dangerous terrain. What can I do ?
A: For a smooth ride, tires must be balanced correctly. Also, some tires will mount better than others. Every tire is a compromise. Tires that wear down slower also tend to lower your gas mileage, and vice versa. Visit Tires & More for information of the appropriate tires to mount onto your ride.

Q: My car pulls to one side . Could this be a problem with one of my tires?
A: Possibly. A soft tire can make your car pull to one side, but this is a very dangerous situation. Your car may also be out of alignment.

Q: Can my punctured tire be repaired rather than replaced?
A: A majority of the time, only punctures in the tread center are reparable. In order to determine whether a tire is "beyond saving," a professional needs to examine the tire.

Q: How important is the tire pressure to the fuel economy?
A: You can improve fuel economy by up to 5% by keeping your tires inflated to the correct pressure and with the right degree of engine, according to the U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy. If you drive 12,000 miles per year and gas is $3 a gallon , that 's a savings of $72 per year.

Q: My tire pressure light is on, what should I do?
A: The Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) warning light means that at least one or more of your tires are under inflated by at least 25%. Check your tires with an accurate gauge and fill them to the correct pressure. If you have identified the TPMS symbol on the board as a warning of tire pressure, congratulations! A recent study by Schrader TPMS manufacturer, found that 46 % of drivers did not know the symbol--a tire in cross section with an exclamation mark inside--means llow pressure.

You should consider that the above are only suggestions, not ruls that are meant to be followed. Each of these suggestions should be interpreted at the discretion of the owner of the vehicle.
