Another video I have seen is one taken with a tire rolling over a piece of clear heavy plastic plate. One can see the tire tread on a dry surface and then when the plate is covered with water one can watch how the the water is dealt with.
Like someone once told me -- about something else but it applies in this case -- that tires work at all is impressive, that they work as well as they do is amazing bordering on miraculous.
yes - nothing like having road grime, brake dust and rubber dust all on your hands all over the interior parts. I suppose this must be why so many favor black interiors - can't see the dirt, therefore it doesn't exist!
I watched it with the sound off. Less drama. Yeah there is a lot of technology in tires, sure is interesting.
We're riding around on air.
But after you pointed out his hands, I was done. Was the battery going to die that quickly on the go pro that he couldn't clean up before trashing the car?
not cool, but if its R&T magazine, figures.
Having been in counter sales in a retail tire store for about 20 years, more than once have I had customers request a simple “tire plug” in a section of the tire that was questionable.
Our store policy was to use a tire patch plug, so that required removing the tire from the wheel, thoroughly inspecting it for damage (most damage resulted in degradation of the inner liner from tire pressure being too low to support the weight of that tire and wheel combo because of the original puncture) and then remounting and balancing it.
It‘s easy to acknowledge the “no repair zone” based on the size of the patch plug overlap near the sidewall of the tire. As the tire and wheel assembly rotates, there’s the obvious flex present. A patch simply won’t hold in those areas.
So....for anyone that becomes disgruntled at a tire store’s policy regarding tire repairs, keep in mind that today is a litigation happy society, and their $20 revenue stream of improperly repairing a tire instead of selling you a new tire is extremely understandable.
I have a '15 r/t + classic pkg with stp. What is the max size of tire /wheel size I can use without any mods? Any recommendations for aftermarket wheels similar to oem heritage wheels? Thanks in advance!
I gota assume that these 2 wheels are exactly the same thing. I know the 1320 set has a ring around the edges for drag racing to keep the tire in place. The Dynamics package wheels look exactly like the 1320 so they are exactly the same right?
They are one of the best looking...
Hello i have a 2014 3.6 SXT on 20” staggered Hellcat Replicas, 275/40 on front and 315/35 on rear. Looking for new shocks and spring to handle the big wide tires better. Looked at B6 billstein with Eibach Pro kit lowering springs but I’m afraid the wheels will contact the fender. Trying to keep...
I searched the forums about this topic and read what I found. Seems like the biggest questions about it is the cost of repair and how reliable is it vs the stock suspension on a Scat Pack.
It's a $995 option and I'm thinking it might be well worth it but I don't know much about it...
Well, I've been trying to figure out how to lift the rear of these cars for some time now, and I ended up grabbing a pair of Coil Spring Rubbers / Spacers. They are just a rubber donut that threads into the coil, adding more spring rate, and lift, common in Nascar. Anyways, just thought I would...
