We have great pride in our military and veterans and honor them on Veterans Day each November 11th. Did you know how and why it is on November 11th? The reason dates back to 1918 and pays homage to the date and time the WW I cease fire went into effect on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month when a temporary cessation of hostilities, between the Allied nations and Germany went into effect. November 11, 1918, is generally regarded as the end of “the war to end all wars” eventhough the official end of the what we refer to as "The Great War" ended with the Treaty of Versailles signed on June 28, 1919, in the Palace of Versailles outside the town of Versailles, France.
Tires are one of the most important parts of your car when it comes to performance and safety. So it's critical that your tires are always in working order and properly maintained. In particular, tire pressure is one of the most overlooked aspects of tire maintenance. Normally tires lose up to 1 PSI per month under regular driving conditions. Therefore, you should check your tire pressure at least once a month to ensure that they're inflated to the recommended PSI. Driving on under-inflated tires can create a whole host of different problems for the tires and for overall performance. Lower tire pressure can cause the tire to bend and build up internal heat. Having the tires deflated by as little as 5 or 6 PSI below the recommended pressure. Having a tire 20% below the recommended pressure can cause many harmful effects. Loss of steering precision and reduced cornering stability are a few. Others are Increased chance of tire failure, reduced fuel economy and possibility of throwing alignment off or damaging suspension. It's never a wrong time to have your vehicle inspected, our trained Jasper professionals can get to work for you and keep you and your family safe.
