What You Need to Know About Tires

What You Need to Know About Tires

Mitsubishi Tires

Properly maintaining your tires is something many drivers don’t think about until there’s a problem. Fortunately, taking a few proper precautions can help significantly improve your ownership experience. Here are a few things you need to know about tires from us here at JBA Mitsubishi.

Proper Tire Inflation

Keeping your tires inflated to the manufacturer-suggested pressure may seem pointless but it comes with a variety of benefits. Drivers who maintain the optimal pressure will experience a smoother ride and better fuel economy. Their tires will also see a longer lifespan, resulting in savings over time.

It pays off to check your tire pressure once a week or so.

Signs You Need New Tires

There are a number of signs you need new tires. First, the penny test, where you place Lincoln’s head into the tire tread, is a great indicator of whether your tires have enough tread for optimal traction. A tire where Lincoln’s head is still showing has less than 2/32-inches of tread, which means you should get a new set of tires.

Tires are often subject to wind, rain, heat, and various other weather conditions. As a result, abnormalities, like cracks, and bulges, can form. Examine your tires weekly for abnormalities. If you spot any, it’s time for a new set of tires.

The 2017 Mitsubishi SUV Lineup: A New Addition

Mitsubishi has a new compact USV on the way, a vehicle that’s scheduled for its big debut in mid-March at the Geneva Motor Show. This international event is one of the largest in the world, a prime location to unveil the new car. A name hasn’t been released yet, but we do know that it will be added to the current SUV lineup alongside the Outlander and Outlander PHEV. We can’t wait to see this new model in action.

New Mitsubishi


According to Mitsubishi, The Mitsubishi SUV lineup is adding this new compact ride to meet the growing demand of urban-friendly vehicles that still have capabilities and plenty of space. A teaser photo has been released, showing a strong stance, short rear end, and a wedge-shape belt line. You’ll also find flared fenders and a truly sporty feel.


Possible features include the Super All-Wheel Control system, common to all SUV models, as well as a multi-link rear axle for added handling. Under the hood may be a 1.5-liter turbocharged engine that is mated to a continuously variable transmission. Mitsubishi has been known to include electric-hybrid options on similar vehicles as well. Nevertheless, Mitsubishi is keeping this new compact SUV under wraps.

What does this mean for you? In addition to an exciting unveiling, the new SUV will provide drivers with added selection. With more cars to choose from, you can more easily find a model that meets your every need. All of us at JBA Mitsubishi are very excited for this new vehicle!

Winter Car Care: Keeping Your Vehicle in Prime Condition

Winter can wreak havoc on your car, especially with cold temperatures, road grime, and harsh weather. That’s why it’s important to perform proper winter car care. From the tires to the battery, there are a few things you should keep in mind this winter season. Such maintenance and service can not only keep you save, but it can also prevent future breakdowns.

Winter Car Care


According to Autotrader, one of the most neglected—yet most important—features during winter months is lighting. The sun sets earlier in winter, which means you’ll be doing more nighttime driving. Plus, most precipitation calls for headlights as well. You should not only check to make sure that no lights are out, but you may also want to consider adjusting your headlight level to improve visibility. You can also treat your headlights with special chemicals to remove the yellowish layer that builds up on older vehicles.


Next, check the electrical. Cold temperatures and electricity don’t get along—that’s why you should take a look at the battery. Look for frayed wires or corroded battery terminals. Naturally, you should avoid contact with any live electrical components, as this could be dangerous. You might consider bringing your car in for a battery test, as a professional can tell you how much charge is left. No one wants to get stranded in the dead of winter.


Finally, check your tires. First, look at tire pressure. If you haven’t filled it recently, it’s probably low. That’s because tire pressure dips 1 psi for every 10 degrees (plus, tires lose pressure naturally over time). Also, look at the treads. The only way to get better grip is to get new tires (consider winter tires). Don’t be overconfident when it comes to four-wheel drive or all-wheel drive—these prevent you from getting stuck, but tire tread is how to really improve grip.
