Fuel Saving Tip: Tire Pressure Saves Fuel In Littleton

Under-inflated tires waste gas for lots of folks in the Littleton area. Think how hard it is to walk in sand – you just have to work harder because of the resistance. When your tires don’t have enough air in them, their rolling resistance is dramatically increased and it simply takes more gas to get around. Always check your tire pressure when you gas up at one of our local Littleton service stations. If they’re low – even just a little bit – bring them up to proper pressure. There’s a sticker on the inside of your driver’s door that gives the manufacturer’s recommended tire pressure. And don’t rely on your tire pressure monitoring system to alert you to when you need more air. The TPMS system is set to warn you when pressure drops twenty percent below recommendations. That’s severely under inflated and you needed more air a long time ago. And if you have a slow leak – get it fixed right away at ... read more

When talking about stopping power, most of us Highlands Ranch drivers tend to focus on our brakes. But our tires are where the rubber meets the road. So having good brakes isn’t enough. Safe Highlands Ranch drivers need to have tires with enough traction to translate braking power into stopping power.Let’s focus on stopping in wet Highlands Ranch conditions. In order for a tire to have good contact with the road, it has to move the water out of the way. If it can’t move the water, the tire will actually ride on top of a thin film of water. That’s called hydroplaning. If it’s really bad, Highlands Ranch drivers can actually spin out of control. At best, you won’t stop as fast. So how does a tire move water? It has channels for water to ... read more
