The two major issues that people have with electric cars are that the initial investment is higher. The second is that people worry about the range of the battery and the limited battery life. As innovations continue on all fronts, electric vehicles are improving. If you are not sure, hybrid vehicles are a good way to combine the lower fuel costs associated with electric vehicles with the assurance of being able to drive the vehicle with gasoline when needed and be able to refuel at a gas station if you need to go longer distances. The batteries are also charged by the combustion engine and the regenerative braking. By adding special tires with a very low rolling distance, electric vehicles have been able to increase their driving range. Today, several tires are recommended for use on electric vehicles, and some are even specially made for them. When you purchase a…

People tend to spend a lot of time choosing a car for their families; however, limited or no consideration is given to the tires. They accept the tires that came with the vehicle, which tend to be all-season tires, and they might purchase a set of winter tires from the car dealer without much consideration. However, when these tires need replacing, they might be overwhelmed by choice of tires available on the market nowadays. Things to consider when you purchase a new set of tires are the type of driving you will do, what kind of vehicle you have, what are the different weather conditions you will need to navigate through, and, last but not least, your budget. If you have a high-performance car, you should look into some premium sporty tires – like the Nokian zLine A/S – with an appropriate speed rating, which indicates the speed the maximum…

Les voitures électriques nécessitent souvent un investissement initial plus élevé que les voitures à moteur à combustion ordinaire. Lorsque vous avez une voiture purement électrique et non une voiture hybride, vous êtes très dépendant de la planification et de la recharge de votre véhicule. Si vous faites principalement l’aller-retour entre votre domicile et votre lieu de travail, si vous faites des trajets pour aller chercher des produits au magasin ou déposer les enfants à l’école ou à l’entraînement de football, cela conviendra à la plupart des gens. C’est pour cela que la plupart des gens utilisent la voiture de toute façon. Si vous devez faire quelque chose qui sort de l’ordinaire, quelque chose pour lequel vous pourriez vous inquiéter de savoir où recharger la voiture, vous pouvez toujours louer une voiture pour cette occasion. Un voyage à travers les États-Unis avec une voiture électrique peut s’avérer difficile s’il n’est pas…

    Výměna zimních pneumatik z letních pneumatik je velmi důležitá a je zásadní pro vaši bezpečnost, protože jízda s letními pneumatikami v zimních podmínkách je spojena s velkým nebezpečím. Je důležité provádět včasné změny mezi letními a zimními pneumatikami, ale nejdůležitější je vždy mít zimní pneumatiky, když máte zimní podmínky. U zimních pneumatik máte jak pneumatiky s hroty, tak pneumatiky bez hrotů, u kterých mají pneumatiky s hroty obvykle přísná pravidla, kdy je lze použít. Budete mít datum, kdy mohou být použity nejdříve na podzim, a poté datum, kdy budou muset být odstraněny během jara. Bez těchto speciálních termínů pro majitele automobilů s pneumatikami s hroty na jejich autech je malá šance, že zapomenou. Pokud by se zapomněli změnit, mohla by jim být uložena pokuta policií. V Polsku a Německu také nemůžete jezdit s pneumatikami s hroty, pokud je máte na sobě. Jakmile je odstraníte a obujete si letní…

You should choose all-weather tires over all-season tires if you live in an area with severe winter weather or plan to go off-road, or live in a mountainous area or rough terrain. You should choose all-weather tires over all-season tires if you live in areas with winter weather because they have the “Three Peak Mountain Snowflake” emblem on their sidewall, indicating that these tires have met the required performance criteria. These tests are done in various snow conditions, and once they have passed, the tires are considered severe snow service rated. This is an important difference between all-weather tires compared to all-season tires that do not hold this rating. Therefore, all-weather tires are the best choice in areas with severe winters, at least if you are looking not to change into snow tires in the winter. It is because the all-weather tires hold the same severe service rating as winter…

Tires are designed to wear out over time, and they will often have wear indicators in the tires so that you can see the remaining tread depth by looking at the tread. Good quality tires will last longer as they will have a lower wear rate than some of the cheaper ones. One thing is sure that all tires will wear out over time. This is one reason why you need to check the tread depth, to ensure that it is above 5/32 inches. If you go below 5/32 inches, it is not safe to drive with them anymore. The car tires start losing its key properties while the tread wears out and you need to replace the to be able to drive safely. Key properties lost are grip, ability to prevent aquaplaning for all-season tires and slushplaning for tires that are approved for winter use. You also will have…

All-weather tires hold advantages in seasons other than winter. Many people invest in all-weather tires in areas that have severe winter weather as they are approved for winter use. All-weather tires hold the “Three Peak Mountain Snowflake” emblem which signifies that they have passed required performance criteria in snow testing and are thereby considered severe snow service rated. This is in fact, the same emblem held by winter tires. All-weather tires however hold advantages in other seasons as well as their advanced tread pattern allow for excellent grip and traction when traveling over tough terrain while In addition, advances in all-weather tires make them just as good on snow and ice as dedicated snow tires. This is because with improvements in the rubber compounds and tread patterns they are able to handle the most severe winter conditions. If your car or SUV is equipped with all-weather tires, then you will…

Tire size matters because only with the right dimension tires for your car or SUV can you enjoy the best performance of your vehicle and being assured the best gas mileage. The wrong size tires can lead to decreased fuel economy and can even harm the transmission. In fact, if you put larger than the recommended size tires on your car you would increase the vehicle’s gas mileage by increasing the rolling resistance. It can also alter the performance of the car and can even be bad for the transmission. This is because a larger tire can actually reduce the cars effective gear ratio. With larger tires causing the tires to rotate slower to cover the same amount of ground which in turn can cause strain on the transmission. Wrong size tires can also affect the braking (ABS), handling and your odometer. Wider tires will also hydroplane easier. You should…

Window films are one of the best ways to keep your windows cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Not only do they keep heat out but they also keep cold air inside, which can save on your central air conditioning bills.

The film will reflect up to 90 percent of the sun’s heat so you don’t have to worry about overheating during those sunny afternoons. When you put these films on your windows, you have the added…

Při výběru letních pneumatik pro hybridní nebo elektrická vozidla je důležité vzít v úvahu rozdíl mezi těmito vozidly a tradičními spalovacími vozy. Elektrická a hybridní vozidla mají akumulátory, díky nimž jsou těžší než tradiční vozidla na benzín. To znamená, že přilnavost je ještě důležitější, aby umožnila správné brzdění a krátkou brzdnou dráhu. Celým důvodem pro řízení elektrického nebo hybridního vozidla je samozřejmě samozřejmě zanechání menší ekologické stopy. Proto jsou pneumatiky Nokian ekologickou volbou, protože mají nízký valivý odpor ke snížení množství energie potřebné pro každou cestu. Tím se prodlužuje vzdálenost, kterou může elektrické vozidlo urazit na každé nabití. Nyní také mají pneumatiky určené speciálně pro elektrická vozidla a mají označení EV za názvem pneumatiky, například Nokian Hakkapeliitta 10 EV. Takže teď, když jste na trhu s některými novými pneumatikami pro vaše hybridní (nebo elektrické) vozidlo, s přihlédnutím k rozdílu mezi nimi a tradičním vozidlem, je rozhodnutí se rozhodnout, zda byste…
