How Various Road Conditions Can Affect Your Wheels

Tuesday, July 2, 2019 12:13:29 PM America/New_York

how various road conditions can affect your wheels

No matter how reliable your car is, you can’t always protect it against things outside your control. Doing what you can to keep your car running well is helpful, but the outside world has a mind of its own—and your wheels are likely to take the brunt of any damage caused by the elements. The United States sees approximately 220 million flat tires a year—a staggering amount, to say the least. Even the 2015 Honda Accord’s wheels, which are known for their reliability, aren’t immune to a stray nail or patch of black ice.

Some of the most prominent dangers, as we all know, are potholes. You should avoid them whenever you can, but sometimes you don’t see them right away, and swerving to avoid them can be unsafe. Depending on the angle and speed at which you hit the pothole, your tire may incur substantial damage. A particularly harsh impact can also damage your rims. Outfitting your car with all-terrain tires and rims made of a sturdy material will stand up to the road best.

How to Know if You Need to Replace Your Wheel Bearing

Monday, June 10, 2019 3:37:33 PM America/New_York

How to Know if You Need to Replace Your Wheel Bearing

It’s not surprising that caring for your car is essential. Ideally, you’ll try to extend the life of your vehicle for as long as possible. When you suspect that something is amiss, it’s important to get it checked out as soon as possible. However, this can be stressful; the truth is over half of Americans are intimidated by their mechanic. It’s imperative that you meet a professional though because some issues are harder to identify than others—especially when they are related to car parts that are known for sporting a long shelf life.

One thing that you need to consider from time to time is your wheel bearings. These are a part of your wheel assembly; it’s the metal ring that links your wheel to your axle. Wheel bearings tend to last for a long time, usually between 85,000 and 100,000 miles. It’s important to be able to pick up on the signs that a bearing needs replacement, especially as the diagnostic process tends to be a tricky one. Whether you’re dealing with Pontiac G6 wheels or a Jeep Wrangler’s, the warning signs tend to be the same.

A Brief Guide on the Different Types of Rims

Thursday, June 6, 2019 3:20:25 PM America/New_York

A Brief Guide on the Different Types of Rims

Car enthusiasts are quick to tell you the importance of having a rim that’s appropriately suited to your car. Your car’s rims determine the profile and traction of the tire, which is integral in impacting your car’s performance. Anyone trying to decide what rims are best suited for their car must first consider the materials the rims are made of and how they will affect your car’s performance; the three most common are steel, alloy, and chrome. There are important differences between the three that one should be aware of when considering how they want their car to drive. 

Knowing how your wheels are made, and what they’re made of, is important when considering the amount of time that’s spent behind the wheel. Americans tend to spend 17,600 minutes driving per year—that’s a lot of wear and tear on our vehicles. The type of rims that you should use usually depends on the type of car you drive; Jetta rims are oftentimes alloy due to their lightweight frame, while heavier duty vehicles may utilize steel.
