In some cases, particularly in the steep mountain passes of the Rockies, the Sierra Nevadas, and the Cascades, tire chains are even required at certain points. Even drivers who are familiar with snowy and icy driving conditions must have tire chains to maintain safe control on mountain roads and highways. The grade of mountain inclines and declines combined with snow and ice can leave the biggest four-wheel-drive or the most nimble front-wheel-drive vehicle with little road control. Putting tire chains on your vehicle is not the most simple task, but it is sometimes required to keep you rolling, and once you have installed snow chains for a first time, you will be ready to chain up and keep on driving through the snowy mountains, every time. When obtaining your tire chains, you must first make sure they will fit your tires. Most tire chain packaging has a guide that indicates which tires it fits.

The Dueler MT, is a Mud Terrain tire and Bridgestone’s tire model geared towards more severe offroad conditions that demand aggressive tread design and stronger tread, bead and sidewall protection. Performance in all categories is above average when compared to other MT tires with the exception of sound levels on paved surfaces where the Dueler MT has been reported to be a much quieter Mud Terrain class tire and more like an All Terrain as far as road noise.
In the mud the Dueler MT has been reported to do well with a block-to-void ratio is similar to that of many competition Mud Terrain tires. Tread blocks of alternating scallops on the outer lugs work well for finding traction. The Dueler MT’s have more vertical sidewalls, with less ‘radial bulge’ than normal kind of like a tall pair of hiking boots. There’s raised rubber ridges near the rim and at the convex of the sidewall.
Each season companies create new tires, update tread compounds, and massage their tread designs. Everyone rides different terrain and needs different types of tires. This listing has came together from first hand riding experiences, what the top shops are selling the most of, and models that riders often discuss in the forums. The All Around tires are going to be the tires that work great as front and back tires. They are designed to tackle almost any terrain with ease.
Tire pressures go up during driving. DO NOT let off this extra pressure. Air pressure in the rear tires of some tow vehicles may be increased to accommodate the additional weight of the trailer.
How to install custom rubber tires and a variable speed accelerator pedal on stock 6 and 12 Volt Modified PowerWheels and Peg Perego vehicles. These cars have been extremely modified from stock. The frames have been strengthened and the center of gravity has been altered to enhance handling and stability. The Jeep has a much wider stance with the new setup. Also, the Ferrari carries it’s 2 original batteries over the front tires to give it needed front end weight. The Jeep carries about 3 pounds of lead in the left rear and it’s batteries up front to achieve proper balance.
The Ryobi drill works well until the kids go over about 40 pounds – too much weight or load will fry the drill. When he attempts to block she yells GO!

March 8, We think it is time to replace our Class C Michelin tires. There is some sidewall cracking, lots of tread. Our auto mechanic says they look good but we know it is difficult to tell on RV tires. Tire size x75x16 I’m not tire savvy, but have read many posts on various RV sites. I do get confused with posts on big rigs; I am not sure if it pertains to my tire needs. Can someone, in the know, explain in simple terms what I need to look for when purchasing tires?
I read things like: If so how do I know they are RV tires? And is it important? You can get Michelin at Costco. We checked and they said they have no way to mount them. So how did you get tires mounted at Costco???
Whether it is for work, recreation or out of necessity, safe trailering is important. Use proper loading techniques If you are loading a trailer with a vehicle or materials, proper balance is critical. Most trailers are designed to support the weight of the item s over the center of the trailer.
The fact is that modern mm (27 inch) tires will work on older straight-side rims, but they won’t handle as much pressure as they are capable of with hook edge rims. Generally, the “rule of thumb” for traditional mm (27 inch) tires is that they should be inflated to psi.
This is Conti’s most performance-oriented summer tire that they sell. The UTQG treadwear rating means that despite being a relatively grippy tire, they will easily last , miles, which amongst this group, is impressive. The trade off is obviously in terms of ultimate grip, these tires are nowhere near the level of the others. Also, compared to the others in this test, these are substantially more capable at handling rainy and inclement weather.
To summarize, this is perfect for the Camaro owner who wants to keep their stock wheels and upgrade to some nice performing rubber. Chevy spec’d this tire for their high performance models to be both track and street capable. The asymmetrical design allows for a stiffer outer tread block to better handle shoulder wear from hard driving, while the inner tread block is still decently able to evacuate water and not hydroplane. Forum users advise that these tires will last approximately 20, miles depending on how hard you drive.
If your looking for a set of track-ready tires, it may be worth your time to upgrade to a spare set of wider wheels, a la 1LE OEM wheels. Those wider wheels can fit wider tires, which means a wider footprint for the car, which results in more grip.
To better quantify this, we set out to compare and contrast the two tires, using our turbocharged Ford Mustang Project Wild E. Coyote as the test mule, to see how the two siblings measure up to one another at the track and on the freeway. The venerable ET Street is built upon a bias play design, much like a drag slick, which means it has a soft, wrinkle sidewall that allows it to absorb energy upon launch and plant the power to the ground.
I keep getting all these people asking me “How do I launch my car? What’s Important First of all, no matter how much power your car is making, you won’t, and I stress WON’T, pull a good ET unless your car is set up properly for the track. You can’t just bolt on a turbo and go out and expect to pull 12’s or 11’s. There’s a lot of preparation that goes into making sure your car will put the power down.
You have to keep an eye on your 60ft times! Those are the ones that tell you how your hooking up off the line. Most 60ft’s range in the 2. However, if you take the same car, set it up properly, pull a 1. Now, do you see how important it is to watch your 60ft times? The reason that your MPH increases is because you’re hooking up better and putting the power to the ground quicker, thus accelerating faster at the same given point. So what do I do??? First of all you’re going to need to make sure that your clutch is in excellent condition, if not, consider picking up a new heavy duty style clutch like our Redline PRO series or our ACT kits.
These clutches don’t slip under high rpm clutch drops and can handle up to twice the torque of a stock clutch.

How To Chain Up Big Trucks Tire Chains Instruction “MINIMUM Chains” Single Truck Tire Chains (R1 Chain Control) When you have to chain-up going over Donner Pass: “MINIMUM Chains” (R1) means 2 sets of single chains, Put one set on your primary drive axle, outside tires.
Tread and carcass are 1″ total thickness, so inner dia. You’ll be able to air up at the end of the day and drive home. I have a 20gal. Not sure where I’d put it or how I would tie it down. Now, if you don’t happen to have a large enough air tank, you are going to have to rely on the output of the compressor for some or all of the air needed to fill the tire s. It is important to consider how this is measured and what it really means.
Finally the PSI part refers to the pressure of the air as it exits the compressor, usually this is expressed in gauge pressure psig. You might then ask at what pressure the CFM is measured. Whenever people talk about air compressors, they always refer the volume of the compressed air measured at the standard atmospheric conditions. For example, if a compressor delivers 1 SCFM 90 PSI, it means that the compressed air occupies a much smaller space inside the compressor at 90 PSI , but if you could un-compress the air back to standard conditions then it would fit inside a box measuring 1’x1’x1′.
