A Broken Tire Can Shake Things Up

You jump in your car to do a quick errand, and you notice a steady vibration through the steering wheel. You’re sure you didn’t hit any potholes recently, and it sure wasn’t vibrating earlier today…

It could be a broken belt in your tire! Tires are made up of layers of material, many times made from different materials to give them particular characteristics. When a belt breaks, it changes the shape of the tire and weakens the area under the tread. In some cases, the tire might look completely normal!

Don’t Let Potholes Put A Hole In Your Wallet

Hitting a pothole with your car can do a real number on tires, wheels, steering, suspension, and alignment.

Potholes occur when water permeates the pavement – usually through a crack – and softens the soil beneath it, creating a depression in the surface of the street. Many potholes appear during winter and spring months because of freeze-thaw cycles, which accelerate the process. Potholes can also be prevalent in areas with excessive rainfall and flooding.

Tax Time Is Here Again, Spend A Little Now On Preventative Maintenance To Save Money For Later

With tax time just around the corner are you prepared? What do you plan to do with your tax return? Will you fix up your house, maybe upgrade some household items?

If you want your tax return to get back to you all year long, put some money aside for your vehicle. The average maintenance on a vehicle is $1,500 to $2,000 a year.

Vehicles that are left unmaintained have an average repair bill of $4000.

Save yourself the money and take a vacation, plan for vehicle maintenance instead of vehicle repairs!
