How to Winterize Your Car

How to Winterize Your Car

The chill of winter is in the air and you want to make sure that your car is prepped before the snow hits. Here are some steps to take to winterize your car: Install Your Winter Tires Winter tires are designed for temperatures below 7°C. The special rubber that they are made with will stay softer in cold temperatures, allowing them to grip the road and reduce the risk of your vehicle sliding or you losing control of your vehicle. Make sure to have your winter tires installed before the snow falls to ensure your safety. Replace Your Windshield Wipers You can purchase winter wipers for your vehicle that will reduce ice buildup on your windshield. These wipers are stronger than spring and summer wipers so that they can remove heavy snow as well. Check Your Windshield Washer Fluid Ensure that you have winter washer fluid in your vehicle. If you currently have bug wash in your reservoir, you will need to replace it with winter washer fluid because the bug wash could freeze and destroy your reservoir and pipes. It’s also important to keep your fluid reservoir full to keep it from freezing as well. Get a Winter Tire Safety Kit Make sure to have a winter tire safety kit in your car that includes booster cables, a flashlight, a blanket, ice salt, a shovel, and an ice scraper. Keep Your Gas Tank Full Just like your windshield washer fluid reservoir, your gas tank could also build up with condensation and freeze if you let your gas tank get too low. During the winter months you should keep...

Fun Tire Facts

Fun Tire Facts

Tires – it’s definitely not a word that sparks most people’s interest. People may think that tires are a boring industry but here at Integra Tire they are our passion.

They produce approximately 318 million tires per year! They hold the Guinness World Record for largest tire manufacturer per annum. The rubber that tires are made with is naturally white. Carbon black is added to tire rubber to increase the durability and strength of the rubber. It also reduces hot spots on the tires. The World’s largest tire is in Allen Park, Michigan. The tire is 80 feet tall and weighs 12 tons. It was actually built to withstand hurricane-force winds! The tire was sponsored by Uniroyal and served as a Ferris wheel at the New York World’s Fair in 1964 and 1965. In the early 1960’s Goodyear decided to develop an illuminated tire. These tires were made with a transparent rubber with lights mounted on the inner rim. During the day they looked a little odd but at night they glowed in the dark! These tires ended up being only a prototype because the rubber was too expensive. It was too expensive to power the bulbs and the lights became invisible once the tires got dirty. Tire technicians have come across many strange things stuck in tires – screwdrivers, bullets, scissors, a deer antler, a car key, and a spoon. Michelin is working on developing...
