Traveling on an improperly repaired tire is dangerous and can create further damage. An incorrectly repaired tire may fail when driven at a high speed, causing loss of vehicle control.
When considering repairing a punctured tire, you need to evaluate the damage the tire has sustained. Reestablishing an airtight seal of the tire's interliner and completely filling the path of the puncture is necessary to ensure a proper repair.
Any repair attempt without removing the tire from the wheel is not proper procedure. It's important to inspect the inside of the tire for hidden damage that may cause the tire to weaken even more. Punctures in the tread area that look repairable often prove to consist of more damage to a greater area of the tire, including the sidewall from the inside. Without removing the tire, the entire scope of the damage is hard to see.
Proper tire repair is critical, and any leak, puncture, or injury to a tire will affect its performance. If you have any questions regarding the condition of your tires, ask us and we'll be glad to inspect them for you. If you have a damaged, punctured, or leaky tire which can be safely fixed, we can help.
Are you in need of a battery? Looking for batteries in Colonia, NJ? Then you've come to the right place - Royal Battery & Tire offers batteries for all applications!
Let's face it: you can have the most meticulously maintained vehicle on the road, but it won't start without the right battery, properly installed and appropriately fitted for your driving needs. From ignition to door locks, your car battery is the catalyzing force that allows you to get from point A to point B. The following is a brief overview of the electrical system that makes transportation possible:
Composed of a series of lead plates submerged in a 35% sulfuric acid/65% water solution, your 12-volt battery houses a chemical reaction that releases electrons through conductors, producing electricity which is then channeled into your vehicle's electrical system. When your car's engine is off, the battery supplies electricity to all of the electrical system components, including the essential power required to start your vehicle. In periods of high demand, the battery also supplements power from the charging system.
2. Charging System
The charging system is life force of your vehicle's electrical system, consisting of three main mechanisms: the alternator, various circuits, and the voltage regulator. The alternator has two roles. It: a) provides power to the electrical system, and b) recharges the battery after the car has started. The various circuits act as conduits for electrical power, and the voltage regulator controls the voltage passed through these circuits. Remember, all of these components require consistent attention and maintenance. It's not just your battery that needs to be replaced every so often; if one of these components should fail, that pulsating power source is now reduced to a lifeless, twenty pound paper weight.
3. Starting System
It may seem obvious that the starting system turns your vehicle's engine on, but did you know that this process consumes much more electrical power than anything else your car does? That's because the starting system consists of three components working one after another. Here's how it works: there's the ignition switch, the starter relay (or solenoid), and the starter motor. Turning the key causes a small amount of current to pass through the starter relay, allowing a stronger current to flow through the battery cables and into the starter motor. The starter motor cranks the engine, forcing the piston to create enough suction that draws a fuel and air mixture into the cylinder. The ignition system creates a spark that ignites the mixture, and combustion is born.
Rotating your tires is an important part of preserving your tire tread and increasing the longevity of your tire. By not rotating your tires, you decrease the life of the tire significantly as well as decrease fuel efficiency, increase drag, and put yourself at risk of wearing the tire down to wire. If a tire tread gets too bad, it can strongly pull your vehicle in a direction, which might even cause an accident.
Bring your car in so our professionals can take a look. We can do a criss-cross rotation or a side-to-side rotation depending on your wear and tear. Rotations should be done in similar lengths of time so that tread wears evenly on all tires. We suggest getting your tires rotated every time or every other time you get your oil changed. It's easy because your car is already at the shop and rotations are inexpensive.
