Tires – For – Cars – Suv’s – Trucks
Appreciate: That You dropped into cruise around my site.
I am going to hang some pictures of some of the older generation loved and respected cars and trucks, possible along with some new more current auto versions.
Keep in mind that as I place pictures on the page, they will be randomly picked and posted. I am thinking at this point in time, that may or may not change, that I will be working with the Chevy, Ford and Chrysler Families.
So if You ever got to get behind the wheel and drove one of these gracious cars or trucks, You would be noticing that on a cold morning or a vehicle that has sat for an extended period of time, that when You went to drive away that the ride would be noticeably quite rough. Now that would have been due to the make of tire composition that was used in the “bias-ply tire” that started out rather flat on the bottom until the tire warmed itself and then reformed its contour of being round again.
Randomly picked truck here: although maybe the colors could be influencing me to post one of so many awesome

trucks of (yesterday past) is that even a word or did I make that up?
As you are probably aware of these vehicles of time past, are, I am quite sure ” tire dressed” with the latest and best rubber to fit the vehicles and the driver’s application.
It’s time for me to go and look at an older time “SUV” not really sure what I am going to come up with, so this might take awhile but I will be back after I do my search.
Suv of the past:
- Fact or Myth here?
Okay so back in the day, this vehicle was probably more so called a (panel van) which today it would be, or might be called an “SUV” of sorts.
Alright then, I am finding that I am losing my grip of what I am trying to bring back to this site of mine, and that is “tire talk” I am behaving like a worn set of tires that can’t seem to stay grounded to the route of my destination.
Tires: that’s why I am here.
I am not an expert “yet” in Tire management, I was in the Automotive Field, Heavy Duty Truck Field and then specialized in Automatic Transmission Diagnostics and Rebuilding.
- Moving On Now
I am now finding more of a bonding time to the Rubber that makes contact with the road surface, whether that being Freeways – Highways, Mountain Terrain adventures or anything in between, by where the safety of drivers, passengers, and family members are Priority while out on the road traveling to one’s destination with the correct tires that fit the designated environment.
Uniform Tire Quality Grade (UTQG) This is to inform the buyer of information on the “tread wear, traction, and temperature capabilities ” of each tire, this may appear on the tire side wall something like this (150 AB). The breakdown of the numbers and letters are this: ‘150’ indicates tire tread wear ratings, ‘A’ indicates traction ratings, ‘B’ indicates temperature ratings. Just remember that the numbers and letters displayed here are just being used for breakdown purposes.
Now the other term: ‘Tread Wear Indicators’ which is the tire wear status, those being the narrow bars which rear theirs heads when the tire tread is worn below the legal limit of, 2/32″ of an inch.
- Need To Look Closely
This converts to less traction, less water displacement in the rain which could convert to planning or riding on top of the water not cutting through the water like a new tire would. Picture by Bing Also the worn tires are more prone to the intrusion of unwanted projectiles such as nails, screws, anything with a sharp piercing edge, and no those wear bar indicators that run between the tire tread are not there to give You more traction at the end of your tires life.
Are You, looking for this kind of traction, then You must like water and mud, all in a day off-roading.
Or are You, looking to play in the snow a while, some snow skies or a winch might be a good idea to pack with You.What about, a nice drive on a beautiful sunny day mixed with possible cloudy conditions with your new tires and rims. Make the day yours, drive and explore the road ahead. Find Your Way.
