  2. The Best Way to Wash Tires

    We all learned how to wash tires the first time we helped dad wash the car. A bucket of water, soap, and a good brush still work the best! However, some of you are into the most hi-tech devices in existence, and you may attempt to use a power washer… NOT A GOOD IDEA! The pulsating action of the power washer when it’s close to anything will cause damage. Remember—steel belted doesn’t mean the surface of the sidewall is made of steel! If you’re still determined to use a power washer, at least make sure the nozzle is a foot away from the surface of the tire to be safer.

    When you make the decision to purchase new tires you may think any tire with the same size on the sidewall will do. Unfortunately, different brands have different standards.

  4. Why Switch From Original Tires?

    The tires that come on a particular piece of equipment are what the manufacturer intended. In the old days, people would purchase new tires as soon as they bought a new car or truck, because the OE (original equipment) tires were of lower quality. Today, that is not true. Most OE tires are of high quality and do not need to be replaced immediately.

  5. PSI: Make Sure Your Tires Are Perfectly Inflated

    Getting knocked on your butt by an exploding tire is no fun, not to mentioned extremely dangerous and potentially deadly. Make sure you do not exceed the maximum PSI recommended for each tire. Also, make sure that when inflating, you use the maximum PSI your equipment manufacturer recommends as your guide. Underinflated tires will not wear properly and you will not get your money’s worth if they don’t have enough air in them.

  6. Tread Depths: Deeper Down the Rabbit Hole

    A deeper tread depth will provide more traction for any tire and also do more damage to the surface it is rolling over. For instance, a golf cart or mower tire with a deep tread will leave marks on the grass. Many up-scale golf courses do not want such marks left of their grass and may not tolerate a tread depth of my than 4/32nds. The mowers used to cut greens use smooth tires. If you are stupid enough to drive on the green with your golf cart, the course manager will toss you out and send you a bill for repairs. Link to example products.

  7. Plies and Ply Ratings: Bigger, Stronger, Faster

    Plies are the thicknesses of material used to build a tire—plies give strength, which is why the strength of a tire is determined by the number of plies and the material that’s used for the plies. They are anchored on each sidewall and go across go from one sidewall across where the tread will be and down the other sidewall. When tires were first invented, cotton was used for the plies, and large tire manufacturers built entire towns around their cotton plantations. Now, exotic materials like polyester and nylon used in the construction of tires.

  8. Flat Hand Truck Tires Equal Broken Goods

    Just imagine: you’re on the stairs, hauling up your new refrigerator. It’s carefully loaded onto your hand truck, and another guy is below helping to guide this monstrosity. What happens next is unsettling to say the least. The tire goes kablam! and the fridge slides down the stairs, and your friend is merely a grease spot on the staircase. We exaggerate a bit, but this could happen! Safety is a serious issue when it comes to moving heavy weight.

  9. Going Green with Recyclable Amerityre Solid Tires

    Tires aren’t usually seen as the most eco-friendly invention in the world. Take, for instance, the very commonly shown symbol of a tire fire with massive plumes of thick black smoke billowing into the atmosphere. Once a tire graveyard catches fire, it is virtually impossible to put out. For some reason, the tires burn….and burn…and burn….for days, sometimes weeks or months.

  10. Size Does Matter: A Short Explanation of Tire Sizes

    The size of the tire is located on the sidewall. It should be in raised letters and numbers and is easy to see. If your eyesight is anything like the writer’s, you might need a magnifying glass to see it. All measurements are in inches, except for one kind of tire which we will get to in a minute. Here are some examples.
