Is it Time for a Tire Rotation?

August 28th, 2014

Tire rotation is an easy maintenance item that has long term benefits for any vehicle. When properly maintained, tire rotations can improve fuel economy, extend tire life and provide drivers better handling through improved stability. Frequently servicing vehicles with tire rotations is imperative to sustaining tire tread by ensuring all tires are used evenly without excessive wear to one section or another.

Normal tread wear is unavoidable due to uneven vehicle weight dispersal, vehicle performance, etc. Without tire rotations, tires continue to wear on the same areas over and over, causing irreversible damage to tire tread which drastically decreases tire life. Engine weight accounts for a major portion of vehicle weight, causing front tires to wear significantly faster than back tires. Front tires ...[more]

April Showers Bring...Hydroplaning?

April 9th, 2014

It’s springtime in Columbus again, and we all know what that means – rain, rain, rain.    Boyd’s Tire & Service Center wants to make sure you and your family stay safe while driving in these April showers.

Hydroplaning happens when a layer of water comes between your tires and the road, causing your vehicle to actually float on top of the water. During this time, you may lose total control of steering, and in turn, the car. Hydroplaning usually causes the steering wheel to jerk and pulls the vehicle towards the puddle of water.

One of the things you can do to prevent your vehicle from hydroplaning is to regularly inspect your tires.

1.       Make sure your tires are properly inflated. When your tires are over or under inflated, hydroplaning beco ...[more]

Determining the Age of a Tire

February 14th, 2014
When it comes to determining the age of a tire, it is easiest to identify when the tire was manufactured by reading its Tire Identification Number (often referred to as the tire’s serial number or DOT number). Unlike vehicle identification numbers (VINs) and the serial numbers used on many other consumer goods (which identify one specific item), Tire Identification Numbers are really batch codes that identify several components.
 
The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) requires that Tire Identification Numbers be a combination of the letters DOT, followed by ten, eleven or twelve letters or numbers that identify the manufacturing location, tire size and manufacturer's code, along with the week and year the tire was ...[more]
