Why Summer Tires Might be Ideal for You

Tires have a big job since they're the only point of contact between your vehicle and the road. When the weather is icy and cold, you need a certain model that has deeper grooves and can withstand cold weather. In this case, all-season tires would work. However, when the weather warms up, you might want to change things up.

Summer tires are often called performance tires. They have shallower grooves that can still cut through water but maintain better contact with the road, and they're built with a sticky tread compound designed to prevent hydroplaning.

Purpose of Vehicle Gaskets

Gaskets are used between many different vehicle components in order to fill gaps that might allow fluid or gases to escape. They also prevent dirt and debris from infiltrating engine or exhaust systems. Gaskets might be made using multiple layers of steel, copper or rubber. They are specially designed to withstand intense pressure and temperatures to form a tight seal. Gaskets are used to seal the camshaft, engine head, intake manifold, exhaust manifold and oil pan.

Over time, gaskets may tear or rupture. Visible signs of a problem include bubbling or foaming in the radiator.

How Do My Tires Lose Air Pressure?

Tires are manufactured with the idea of replacement in mind. Tire manufacturers realize that no tire will last forever. Tires are created from a blend of natural and synthetic materials to absorb small impacts that occur naturally on the road. They are placed on a metal rim, sealed as well as possible and sent down the road.

No one has yet created a shock-absorbing material that does not breathe. The nature of the rubber/synthetic tire allows the passage of one-two pounds of air-pressure through the material every month. The leak process accelerates when harsh hits occur...
