Skating is a great winter activity.
Many Bay Area cities operate seasonal rinks, such as San Jose’s Downtown Ice in the Circle of Palms between the Fairmont Hotel and the San Jose Museum of Art. Itís great fun for the entire family.
But hereís something that’s not fun when your car goes skating across lanes on a wet or icy roadway.
The only thing keeping you away from that guardrail is your tires and it’s very easy to overlook when your tires need a change.
The National Highway Transportation Safety Board says you need at least 2/32" of tread depth to be safe. But the reality is to get a good grip on things, you really need at least double that (4/32" or 1/8").
The old penny test — where part of Lincolnís head is always covered by the tread ó tells you if you have at least 2/32". But remember, youíll want double that for added protection this winter.
Borelli Motor Sports Knows Tires
If you’re not sure whether you’re safe, contact Borelli Motor Sports for an inspection. If you rent space at Borelli Motor Sports for your collection, the inspection can be free as part of your monthly service hours.
If your tires do need to be changed and balanced, Borelli Motor Sports has the latest in highly sophisticated equipment.
Advanced Leverless Tire Changer
The Hunter Auto34 is the most advanced leverless tire changer in the world. An ultra-thin floating tool head inserts itself between the tire and wheel to demount and mount the tires, without any damage to the wheels or tire beads.
The Hunter Auto34 works on any size tires and automates the entire process. Watch the video.
Beyond Tire Balancing
Hunter’s GSP9700 goes beyond simple balancing to solve vibration problems other balancers canít fix. The machine puts up to 1,500 pounds of road force and lateral pull force on your tires to simulate driving conditions and identify problems such as tire run-out due to high or low spots on a tire or rim.
In addition, the GSP9700 features SmartWeight, which improves balancing with 30% to 40% fewer lead weights — so it’s better for the environment. You can even have the weights hidden behind the spokes. Watch the video.
