Technology and Tyres: Working for You!
Modern technology has advanced in leaps and bounds in recent years, with computers getting smaller and more powerful, able to help us in ways that seemed impossible just a decade or so ago. Technological advances are helping big corporations and governments to operate smoothly, and they have found their way into every part of our lives, even into parts that would not seem obvious at first thought. This includes the world of driving, cars and even tyres – tyre alignment and wheel balancing can be done very precisely using computerised measurements, and some vehicles even come with internal CPUs that can help to diagnose performance issues.
Mechanics and Technology
Mechanic’s tasks that used to be done with judgement and ‘by eye’ can now be perfected with computerised aids, ensuring that your vehicle is maintained in the best possible configuration to give you a smooth drive, with minimal wear and tear, and with the greatest fuel efficiency possible. Previously, mechanics had to learn the hard way, by making settings and then running the car, checking often to see if any signs of wear and tear were making themselves visible. This was often a time consuming and inexact job: and computers can now do it in seconds, often by communicating with the vehicles on-board computer!
Everything is Online!
And another way that technology has helped us all is by giving us the ease, speed and comfort of online shopping. Groceries can be chosen and paid for in about fifteen minutes at midnight, for delivery to your door the next day, and there is very little that cannot be bought online – from entire cars to replacement tyres when yours are too old or worn to be safely used any longer. If you want to order tyres online, get them from Jet Wheel Tyre and arrange their fitting at the same time.
Wheel balancing is making sure that the weight of the vehicle is spread evenly over all four tyres, and using a computerised scale can help your mechanic to adjust this finely without needing to spend a lot of time on the job. Wheel alignment, ensuring that all four wheels point in the same direction is another job perfected with digital help, enabling mechanics to get your tyres in perfect sync. Finally, tyre rotation – the practice of swapping the four tyres around, usually back to front and left to right (so the back right tyre will be put onto the front right of the car) – can also be assessed on a microscopic scale, with the computer able to confirm the best configuration for the wear patterns on the tyres, or even making the recommendation that one or more tyres be replaced entirely.
This means that technology can not only help you buy your tyres without leaving your home, but that you save time until they are ready to be fitted, and you can pop in and get the work done promptly and efficiently, sending you back on your way before you know it! And, as if all that was not enough, your tyres will be in place, adjusted to optimal positioning and pressure, so you enjoy a smooth and comfortable drive: effortlessly.
