Under Pressure in AURORA: TPMS

Have you noticed an increase in price when you get a flat tire fixed in AURORA, or have your tires rotated? It might be the result of your TPMS, or Tire Pressure Monitoring System.The federal government began requiring a TPMS system on 2008 model year passenger vehicles and light trucks. Some 2006 and 2007 models may have them as well. The system has a warning light that is mounted on the dashboard that will go on if one of the tires becomes severely underinflated.Why the new requirement? Because underinflated tires are the number one cause of tire failure. Tire blowouts cause crashes and sometimes fatal accidents. Underinflated tires also need longer stopping distance and can skid, both of which also present dangers on IL roads. Many flat tires can also be prevented by proper tire inflation, and though this may seem an economic consideration, AURORA drivers who have changed a flat on the side of the road recognize that this has serious safety concerns as well.Advance ... read more

Automotive Tips from Honest 1 Auto Care: When to Replace a Damaged Tire

Repair or Replace? That’s a question AURORA drivers ask when they have tire damage. Some punctures cannot be repaired because of their size or location. Punctures larger than a quarter of an inch (6.4 mm) are considered too large to be safely repaired. Punctures in the sidewall or near the shoulders may not be able to be repaired. And sometimes there is internal damage revealed on inspection that indicates the tire should not be repaired. Run flat tires should not be repaired. Repairing high performance tires may make them unsuitable for motorsports. Your friendly and professional Honest 1 Auto Care service advisor can inspect your damaged tire and tell you if it can be safely repaired or if it should be replaced - and then help you get back on the roads around AURORA.Give us a call.Honest 1 Auto Care989 S EOLA RDAURORA, IL 605046304998722http://honest1aurora.com

AURORA drivers should also think about the safety aspect of tires. The tires do a lot of work – they carry the weight of the vehicle and you and your passengers. You want to be sure they hold the road and provide good traction on IL freeways and surface streets. If you carry heavy loads or tow a trailer on IL highways, the tires need a high load rating.Ask your friendly and knowledgeable AURORA tire professional at Honest 1 Auto Care.
