How to Start Your Own Mobile Tire Installation Service Business

You could start your own mobile tire installation service business, and be in business for yourself! You could offer your service, by contacting certain tire dealers, in your neighborhood. Talk to them, and let them know, you want to start your own business, and you would like to get a discount on tires from them, if you become a regular customer for them, and better them, than their competition, up the street.

Tires stores are just about everywhere these days! Everyone needs tires eventually, just no way around it, and that is good for you! It is a hassle, for most people to take their car to a tire dealer, wait sometimes forever, if they are busy, and then get shoddy service, and hidden extra charges, almost all the time.

If you take that worry away from your customer, you will do good! If your customer had to pay $500 for a set of tires from the same dealer you just made a deal with, to get them, say, for example, $400, you would make an instant $100 profit on that, and then if you install them, and charge another $100 for that, you could make $200, in just one or two hours time! Walk around any neighborhood, and look at the cars you see in the driveways, or on the road. You could go threw any parking lot in America, and look at the tires on cars as you walk around. The cars with the bald tires will be your best customers!

Let them know you will take care of everything. In the beginning, you can come to their house, put their car up on jacks, take the tires to the tire dealer, have them put the new tires on, and take them back, and install them, back on their car, and your customer will be happy, that they did not even have to leave the house!

You could later, after you get more experience, and a better truck, you could get your own tire machine, and do the tires yourself, right in the back of your truck, and pick the tires up ahead of time, for your customer, so their car, is not up on stands for too long. You would want to have signs made up for your vehicle, and pass out business cards to all the cars you see with bald tires!

Important Facts About the Advantages and Disadvantages of Different Types of ATV Tires

People often overlook important details about the maintenance of their automobile, thus most of the times decreasing its life span, and in some extreme cases, even putting lives in danger. Even though tampering with vehicles is not recommended (and also illegal in most countries), an owner still has an active role in deciding what parts can fully satisfy his needs.

When talking about vehicles, there are two elements that must be known and properly understood: services and parts. Generally, automotive services such as oil changes, wheel alignments or brake repairs are done by professional mechanics, in authorized services that can give guarantees of their quality work. However, this commodity is not a reason why people should not know how to perform a simple oil change when in need. Regarding oil changes (and most automotive services for that matter), most countries consider it mandatory that they are made at least on a yearly basis. The simple oil change is one of the actions that can prolong the time that the car can run well and can be necessary anywhere between three or twenty-four months, depending on the driver’s habits and, of course, on the type of vehicle.

Even if a certain quality control is imposed for all services, things tend to change when talking about the automotive parts industry. Most of the times it happens with a poorly made mirror or headlight, but when important elements such as tires are not properly manufactured, the safety of the driver and passengers can no longer be ensured. This is even more relevant for ATV enthusiasts, who rely greatly on the quality of their tires.

Different models of ATV tires exist, and even if some of them are regarded as “the best for any terrain”, in reality you must know what you need them for. The main choice is usually between comfort and resistance to tough terrain. When used on a daily basis, most manufacturers usually recommend less aggressive ATV tires, for more “enjoyable” rides; however, if used rarely and in extreme driving conditions, an 8 plies carcass tire will surely suit your needs a lot better. The same comfort factor is essential when choosing between radial and bias ATV tires. Of course, most distributors and manufacturers offer guidance in the decisive process, so you should always address any questions to the specialized staff.

No matter what you desire to invest in, always look for products with a quality guarantee because they will almost always prove to be reliable in the long run.

How to Properly Check Tire Pressure and Condition for Safety

Tire pressure and condition is one of the most overlooked safety aspects on our cars. Most people just assume their tires are fine and that they will be safe because they look okay – the tires are not flat. Rarely do we ever see someone get out a tire pressure gauge and check their tire pressure or place their hands on the tire and feel for roundness and irregularities. What most people don’t know is that proper tire pressure will improve your gas mileage, make your brakes and suspension system last longer, and it will improve your gas mileage. According to AAA, it is ideal to have your tires pressure and condition checked for safety every time you fill up your gas tank and prior to any long drives or vacations.

Before checking your tire pressure you should check your tires condition. Your tires are what holds you to the road and if there are any irregular wear patterns, bubbles and cracks, etc your safety can be greatly compromised. Look over all your tires. Place the palm of your hand on the tire and feel it is it round? This may sound obvious, but you can quickly find early signs of cupping (which can indicate bad struts), irregular wear (could be improperly balanced wheels), cracks, and deep wear that would make your tires unsafe.

Take out a penny and make sure Lincolns head is buried in the tread. If it isn’t that means you need to replace your tires. Every time I go to the local grocery store half of the cars I see have bald or nearly bald tires and tires in bad condition. This can cause hydroplaning and very unsafe conditions if the roads were wet from a recent rain. If you notice anything irregular take your car to a service station. Have your tire condition checked and have your tires replaced as necessary as your safety may be compromised by worn tires or another tire condition (Walmart’s service stations will check your tires for free).

To properly check your tires pressure you must use a tire pressure gauge. Going by look or feel isn’t good enough. Just because the tire doesn’t look flat doesn’t mean you didn’t over or under inflate it. Your car or trucks owners manual will tell you the recommended tire pressure for your tires. Check all four tires and your spare. You wouldn’t believe the number of people that assume their spare is fine and haven’t checked it in 3 or more years. Some don’t even know if they have a spare or tire changing tools. Some people don’t even know where to look for their spare tire or how to change a tire.

Most tire pressure gauges have an indicator that will be pushed out by the amount of pressure in your tire. More expensive ones are digital. Both are rudimentary and easy to use. If you find you are under inflated most gas stations have an air pump. Fill and check again to ensure proper pressure. Always replace the caps when you are done. This keeps the elements out and corrosion can and does cause leaks. If you have too much pressure then let some out by pressing a key or screwdriver into the release valve and then check it again. If your tires have too much pressure it can cause them to prematurely wear in the middle and reduce the actual area of the tire that meets the road and can reduce your safety.

There you have it, how to properly check your tires condition and pressure for safety. By having safe tires you are increasing both your safety and the safety of those around you.
