Do You Need to Get Your Tires Balanced?
Dec 02, 2013 - 4:14 PM - by AutoGuide.com

Quote:
If your steering wheel shakes or your car feels a bit bouncy while driving down the road, your vehicle may have tires that are out of balance.

If you take a close look at your car’s wheels, you may notice little metal squares lined up in a row on the inside of your wheel. These are wheel weights and are put on when your wheels are balanced. A balanced wheel results in smooth driving on the road and helps to maintain the longevity of your car’s tires and suspension.

WHAT IS WHEEL BALANCING?

Right before your new tires get placed on the car, they have to be balanced. Despite all the high-tech chemistry and science involved in making a tire they still have some weight imbalances, which are fixed by getting it balanced at a shop.

When you take your tires to get balanced, the mechanic will take the wheel to a wheel balancing machine. The machine will spin the wheel and bring out the unbalanced weight in the tire to the outer edge. The mechanic will then put weights on the opposite side of where the weight is in an effort to balance it. This is done on all your car’s wheels and results in a smooth ride when driving about.

How Far Can You Drive on a Spare Tire?
Aug 15, 2013 - 10:18 AM - by AutoGuide.com

Quote:
A spare tire is a helpful safety net, but most are not meant to replace your flat tire indefinitely.

Not all spare tires are created equal, so check your vehicle owner’s manual to get a better understanding of what kind of substitute you have. Temporary spare tires usually don’t have nearly the lifespan of a regular tire. In comparison to a normal car tire they can have just one layer of polyester in the sidewall and two belts of steel with a layer of polyester in the tread, meaning they can’t take nearly as much road abuse as a normal tire.

Next-Gen Software Aims to Eliminate Vehicle Defects
Jun 03, 2013 - 10:34 AM - by AutoGuide.com


Quote:
Look around you. Even if you’re in a place as mundane as an office you’re surrounded by things. There’s probably a telephone to your left, a stapler in the drawer and even a bottle of water next to the keyboard you spend thankless hours pounding away on each week. Chances are all of these items were designed, tested and manufactured in computer software long before they ever went into physical production. On the forefront of this digital revolution is a company called Dassault Systèmes, a global corporation that’s practically synonymous with product development.
