Car and Truck Wheels, Tires and Tire Accessories
When the weekend rolls around and you want to drive away your weekday worries, you need high-quality wheels and tires to ensure a blowout does not blow off your plans for hitting the open road. Browse cheap tires for sale from sellers on eBay to find the famous brands that let you keep a good grip throughout your trip, including Firestone, Nitto, Toyo, Bridgestone, and Continental. Here are a few questions to ask to make sure you make the right selection:
How to find the right size of your tire?
Whether you are choosing new tires or used tires, purchasing the right size is essential, so refer to the code on the sidewall of your existing set. It includes all the information you need to make an informed decision. For example, the code P225/55R18 97T defines a passenger tire with a width of 225 millimeters, a sidewall height that is 55 percent of the tire's width, radial construction, and a diameter of 18 inches. The final values define the load index and speed rating. Additionally, consider the type of tire you require. All-season tires are suitable for any weather conditions. All-terrain tires provide extra grip in off-road conditions, while snow tires have lots of grooves to provide traction on snow and have a softer rubber that does not harden in low temperatures.
Does eBay sell OEM wheels and rims?
Sellers on eBay offer a wide selection of Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) and aftermarket wheels and rims. If you want to maintain the factory-fresh look of your vehicle and ensure a perfect fit without modification, look for OEM wheels. Or, if you want to change up the look of your car or truck with some alloys or spinning rims, search for aftermarket products. Shopping for aftermarket components gives you more choices for personalizing your vehicle, but it is necessary to research parts carefully to ensure compatibility.
How can you get more mileage from your automobile tires?
The surest way of getting the most out of your car tires is to perform regular checkups. It is recommended that you conduct monthly checkups on your car tires in order to maintain the right tire pressure as advocated by the vehicle manufacturer. In order to extend the tire life further, you should perform some wheel balancing, rotation, and alignment after every 3,000 miles. It is important to note that the timing and mileage required before a checkup may vary depending on driving habit and surface.
How long does a vehicle tire last on average?
In mixed conditions, a truck tire may go up to 25,000 miles. This can go further up to around 37,000 miles if the driving conditions are smooth. Tires that are often driven on bumpy and uneven roads will have a life of around 18,000 miles on average.
What is nitrogen pressure and what are its advantages?
Nitrogen pressure is using nitrogen gas for tire air. Nitrogen gas is inert and is more like dry air without oxygen. Having been used widely in Formula One racing and military aircraft tires, the inert nature of nitrogen gas has proven to be a bonus. For one thing, the fact that nitrogen runs between 17 to 20 degrees cooler than ordinary air pressure means that it is non-flammable and significantly reduces the risks of tire explosion. Compared to ordinary tire air, nitrogen gas is heavier and therefore helps maintain the tire shape for much longer. The fact that nitrogen is stored three times longer than ordinary air helps reduce the trips to the filling station and also saves on fuel consumption in the long run. As if that's not enough, the life of your tires is increased again because nitrogen gas lacks moisture which is an accelerator for rust on steel rims and belts.
What's the difference between wheel alignment and wheel balancing?
Wheel alignment refers to the adjustment of truck wheels in such a manner that the wheel runs parallel to each other and perpendicular to the road. A well-aligned wheel will improve the smoothness of your drive and also increase your tires' lifespan. Wheel balancing, on the other hand, allows your truck wheel to rotate smoothly without any wobbles or vibrations.
What are some advantages of tubeless tires?
Tubeless tires have some advantages:
- They run cooler.
- They reduce instant punctures.
- They provide safety.
