Goldilocks and The Three Bears is a Lot Like Tire Pressure

Goldilocks and The Three Bears is a Lot Like Tire Pressure

Maintaining your tires is one of the most important vehicle safety components, regardless of whether you are driving an SUV, truck, or car. Not only does it ensure your safety, but it also provides the safety of your passengers and other drivers on the road. If your vehicle runs out of gas, you will slowly come to a stop. If an engine doesn’t receive preventative maintenance, it, most likely, will refuse to start. Driving on vehicles with incorrect tire pressure is risky -- disaster could strike at any time and any speed, as it affects how your vehicle responds to steering and braking input. Tires with incorrect pressure aren’t only dangerous, but can also change your vehicle’s gas mileage and overall performance.  When you drive on underinflated tires, the contact patch between your car and the road surface increases, this increased contact patch leads to more friction between the tire and road surface, which results in more wear on the tire and fuel consumptio ... read more

Why You Need Maintenance to Make Sure Your Vehicle Doesn’t Overheat in the Summer

Why You Need Maintenance to Make Sure Your Vehicle Doesn’t Overheat in the Summer

Summer can certainly take a toll on your vehicle. Just like how you have to break out your bathing suit, generously apply your sunscreen, and drink plenty of water, your vehicle also needs a little extra TLC. Without proper maintenance, your vehicle will be prone to overheating, since it will be working extra hard in the scorching summer heat.  The team at South Park Tire & Auto Center recommends these maintenance services to ensure your vehicle doesn’t overheat in the summer:  Your vehicle will need an oil service.

In fact, all the fluids in your vehicle play an important role in keeping your vehicle cool and comfortable in t ... read more

Which Type of Gasoline is Right For You?

Which Type of Gasoline is Right For You?

We have all been to the gas station and seen the three types of gasoline. Have you ever wondered which gasoline is best for your vehicle, or even if there is a gasoline right for your make and model of car? The team at South Park Tire & Auto is here to help answer all your questions about which gasoline is right for your vehicle.  What type of gas your vehicle should use depends on what level of octane your vehicle requires. Typically, regular fuel is 87 octane, premium is 91 or 93, and mid grade is often 89. Octane measures the gasoline’s resistance to preignition; the higher the octane, the less likely it will be to detonate. What does mean for you, and what type of gas your vehicle needs? Your car’s owner manual will specify which level of octane your car requires. For example, if the owner manuel says 91-93 level octane, you should only use premium gas.  Some engines use a higher compression ratio to produce more power, which means they compress the fuel ... read more
