Keep Your Motorcycle Tire Pressures

Monday, June 12th, 2017

Tire pressure is one of the most important issues in any automobile to preserve. You get greater gas mileage, less put on in your suspension and less wear on your tires once they are inflated correctly. The very best aspect about keeping your pressure is just how effortless it can be to perform. All you need to do is fill them up with air (which is easily manageable without having professional assist) and you happen to be good to go. The only thing you need to be concerned about is once you need to fill your tires with air.

Most of the people depend on their vision to establish no matter whether or not the they need inflating. It is possible to often see a bulge on the bottom from the tire which lets you know it really is somewhat flat. This is an incredibly inaccurate method to measure pressure. Some tires are developed differently than others and will show far more or less of the bulge. Even when tires are not bulging they are able to typically times need much more air. The simplest way to maintain track from the pressure within your tires is with a motorcycle tire pressure monitor, or motorcycle TPMS.

A TPMS operates by receiving electronic signals from each and every of your tires which tells the unit what the tire pressure is in each tire. The electronic signal comes from PressurePro tire sensors which rest on the air intake valve and replace the valve stem caps. Installation of a tire pressure monitoring system is very straightforward. You place the tire sensors on every single of the intake valves after which place the primary unit (the Keep track of), which receives the signal wherever you desire it on the dash. Then you press some buttons and you’ll be able to verify the pressure of any tire you want-even while riding down the road. This technique is fantastic for monitoring pressure and maintaining an perfect amount of air within your bike tires too because the sidecar and/or trailer tires.

The classic way of measuring the air pressure in any tire is with a tire pressure gauge. They may be manual pieces of gear that require you to get down following to your tire, take off the cap of the intake valve and then press the tire gauge onto the valve stem. The gauge then measures the quantity of pressure coming out of the tire and also the stick pops out showing you what the tire pressure is. It is a extended method and gets tiresome as a result of how usually you will need to verify your tire pressure. An electronic gauge is really the only handy and correct method to hold track of how much air is inside your tires. PressurePro sensors read tire pressure the moment each and every 7 seconds and transmit updated readings for the Monitor. Need to you’ve got a low-pressure tire, the technique alerts you as to which tire, and what the tire pressure is in that tire.

Car Tire Types

Wednesday, April 29th, 2015

Here are the types:

High Performance Tires

As you probably guessed, High Performance Tires are for vehicles that usually travel at a high speed. They offer new & Used High Performance Tires with a softer rubber base so that way, you have a better traction percentage whenever you’re cornering those curves at speeds above the legal speed limit. The only thing about these tires is that they just so happen to have a shorter tread life.

Mud & Snow Tires

Mud & Snow Tires are obviously .. for mud & snow; but if you want to be really specific, these tires are a type of Winter Tires that are specifically designed to handle low temperature conditions. The compound of the tread is typically softer than the tread that is in New & Used Tires for Summer weather; therefore, it gives you a better grip whenever you are driving ice or snow – or maybe even both. If you were to use these New or Used Tires in the Summer as you do the Winter, just know that the tread wears faster at higher temperatures.

If you have these, you may notice that they may or may not accept the metal studs that were designated to give you traction on icy roads .. but how often are you driving on icy roads; right?

New & Used All – Season Tires

The All Season tire is technically – just an “Okay-ish” tire. The tread for Winter Tires is not good for Summer conditions & the tread for Summer Tires is not so well in Winter conditions; so I guess you can say that these tires are a bit of a combination of both. New & Used All Season Tires are becoming more & more common on the vehicles that you see everyday because they are so convenient & have a “passable” performance.

All-Terrain Tires

These tires are ordinarily seen on most SUV’s & small trucks. They’re made to have firm sidewalls so that way, there’s a greater resistance against ruptures whenever you are being adventurous & go off-roading. The tread is made to have a wider spacing so that when you do go off-roading, the mud won’t get stuck the tread.

Spare New & Used Tires

There’s some cars that already have that small 12″ Used Tires installed in their tires just in case a blowout happens. There are also some other cars that carry that “Mini spare” or those “Space Saver” tires that allow you to store them in the trunk and save you money on gas. The only thing with these mini’s is that they don’t last you very long & they have a low – speed rating.

Industrial Tires

These new & used tires include  pneumatic and non-pneumatic tires for specialty industrial and construction equipment. The equipment involves things like skid loaders and fork lifts.

New & Used Tires Used For Airplanes

These are the tires that are made to withstand really heavy loads for short amounts of time. The number of tires required for aircraft increases with the weight of the plane – make sense?

I think that it’s fascinating how there are so many different new & used tires and that there’s so many different applications & uses for all of these tires !

Attorney Jason Waechter Offers Tire Safety Tips for Motorcyclists

Sunday, January 25th, 2015

Detroit, MI (PRWEB) June 04, 2014

As The Motorcycle Lawyer, Jason Waechter has put a lot of effort into helping people affected by motorcycle crashes, and also to trying to prevent crashes from happening in the first place. Most of his efforts involve motorcycle awareness campaigns that remind car and truck drivers to Watch for Motorcycles. However, Waechter often gets gear and safety tips from fellow bikers, and tries to share the best tips with a wider audience.

“My involvement with the biker community means I get a lot of great insider information to share,” says Waechter. “National Tire Safety Week is a great opportunity to share some tire-related tips from the riders and safety groups I’ve worked with.”

Don’t ignore your tires: “Many riders don’t think a lot about their tires, but they are key to keeping traction on the road,” says Waechter. He recommends inspecting tires regularly for cracks, foreign objects like nails, unusual wear, or other damage. Proper maintenance and off-season storage can make a huge difference in the lifespan of your tires.

Pressure is important: “Get yourself an accurate tire gauge, and keep it on you when you ride,” Waechter advises. Bikers who do not have a tire gauge can request one through his website. Among other tire tips, NHTSA recommends checking tire pressure at least once a week or more often.

“Check your tires before you ride, when they’re cold,” advises Waechter. Remember that tire pressure can be affected by the temperature outside and the load you are carrying; your bike’s owner’s manual will provide information on how to adjust pressure accordingly. Waechter recommends buying a portable air tank for home use when tire pressure needs to be adjusted.

Be prepared: “Get an emergency kit; you can buy a pre-made kit, or assemble it yourself,” says Waechter. “Just make sure you carry it with you every time you ride.” An emergency kit should include tire plugs, a rasp, a retractable razor blade, an Allen wrench, an air pump or CO2 canisters, and repair instructions or an owner’s manual.

“Always carry your phone when you ride, too. Put it away in your emergency kit so it won’t distract you while you’re in motion.” Keep in mind that emergency roadside repairs are temporary; once the bike is functional and safe to ride, go straight to the nearest repair shop to have the plugs installed properly or to replace the tire altogether.

Finally, Waechter recommends that all motorcyclists familiarize themselves with their owner’s manual, and find a professional mechanic they can trust. “Know your bike, your tires, and your limitations,” recommends Waechter. “Hopefully, these tips will help riders stay a little safer on the roads.”


Jason Waechter has spent two decades cementing his reputation for results. Over the years, he has specialized his practice to motorcycle accidents. Jason has fought tirelessly for accident injury victims and contributed significantly to safety education and accident prevention. He has entrenched himself as one of the nation’s premier lawyers.
