Hot Summer vs Tire Pressure

3 tips to keep you rolling this summer!

Summer is here to stay! We all know we need to keep our car tires inflated properly. If you are driving down the road and your car begins to pull slightly to the right or left, this might mean you have a low air pressure on your tire. But do we really know how to properly check and inflate your tires according to the weather?

Tip 1: Check your tires in the morning before you head over to the air pressure pump/gas station. This is important as the pressure increases 1 PSI for 10 degrees Fahrenheit.
Not only that as you begin to drive your tires get warm therefore increasing the tire pressure.

Tip 2: Use a digital  air pressure gage.  I learn this the hard way, always buying the dollar air pressure gage that always read the same tire differently.  Toss it out and buy a digital one, it might be a bit more expensive but it will be worth your money.

Tip 3: Do not inflate to the max.  The PSI number on your tire is the maximum air pressure your tire should be inflated.  Read the owners manual or the side of the driver door to follow the manufacture tire pressure recommendation. 

Bonus tip: Check regularly. as temperature changes so does your tire pressure. We recommend you check at lease once a month, and if your traveling far. By doing so you will keep yourself safe, if you are traveling with your family it will keep your family safe, and it will save you a lot of money on the long run.

How to Wash your Car – 3 Things you are Doing Wrong

3 Things you are Doing Wrong | Car Wash

1. Using the wrong soapcar wash

You need to wash your car with soap that’s gonna suds up a lot, because those suds help move dirt away from your paint to prevent scratches. You also don’t want a soap that’s too alkaline for various reasons. That Dawn Brand Soap you’ve got sitting by the kitchen sink? It’s practically guaranteed to strip off any wax you’ve got on your car, and that’s a big NO, NO. 

 What to do instead: Get something that’s actually made for washing your car. If your car has minor scratches already, use a wash that has small amounts of synthetic wax in it. The wax will fill in those tiny scratches and make everything nice and shiny again.

2. Washing in the sunlight on a hot day

The water-and-soap combo is a lubricant of sorts that helps the mitt glide across the paint without scratching it, but also, as the water dries, the minerals within it wind up etching onto the paint. You know how hard it is to get rid of water spots in your shower? It’s infinitely more annoying having those on your car, and you can’t scrub to remove them. 

 What to do instead: Wash your car either in the morning or evening when the sun isn’t at its peak. In a pinch, you can have a helper constantly run water over the car — it’s not exactly an environmentally friendly solution, but it will keep the paint cool and prevent spots.

3. Using a regular towel

Normal cotton towels are neither very absorbent nor terribly soft. What’s worse: they’re moderately abrasive, so if you’re not drying your car with all the caution of a neurosurgeon, you’re inviting trouble.

 What to do instead: Use a good-quality microfiber towel; because of the way it’s constructed, it will hold more water before reaching its saturation point. If you get a good one it won’t scratch your paint, either.
