Here we are in April, and that means that trees everywhere, especially the coniferous kind, are spewing huge amounts of yellow-green pollen into the air. Nobody really likes pollen, except maybe for bees; it brings sneezing fits and runny noses for everyone, and it results in a disgusting powdery film all over your vehicle.

At RoadMart Inc. in Troy, AL, we do a lot of wheel alignments – alignment jobs are a big part of our core business. We do run across customers from time to time who have some misconceptions about what an alignment really entails, so we’d like to take a moment to clear a couple of things up…

Many of us (at least those of us past “a certain age”) have fond memories of cars from the 60s and 70s. The truth is, though, cars from a generation ago required a lot more maintenance and auto repair to keep them on the road than today’s cars.

Like anything else on your car, your tires will wear out over time. Worn tires will lose traction and will result in poorer ride quality and handling, but it happens slowly enough that it can be hard to notice. Here’s a little rundown on things to look for as your tires age:
- Tread depth is the surest indicator. States mandate a minimum of 2/32” tread depth, but really anything under 4/32” (1/8”) is too low. Here’s an easy way to check your tread depth. Insert a penny into a tread groove, Lincoln’s head down. If any of Abe’s hair is covered, your tread is at 2/32” or better. Now, try the same test with a quarter. Does the tread reach Washington’s head? That’s a depth of 4/32”. Then, one more time with the penny&helli ...[more]

It’s pretty easy to lay down $600 or more for a decent set of tires for your car, truck, minivan or SUV. That kind of money is an investment…and you want to get the most out of that investment. Here are some pretty important things to remember as you start to rack up the miles on your tires:
- Inflation Levels: There’s hardly anything that’s more important to your tires than proper inflation. Underinflated tires will wear prematurely, drive and handle poorly and cost you more money in terms of fuel economy due to their increased rolling resistance. Worse, underinflated tires generate more heat, which breaks down the tire’s internal structure and raises the chances of tire failure. Check your recommended inflation levels, usually on the driver’s door jamb, and regular ...[more]
