Nitrogen Inflation

Nitrogen inflation allows the tyres to lose air at a slower rate. This is possible because the molecules are smaller than regular oxygen which means it’s harder for the gasses to escape smaller gaps in the tyres.

One of the advantages of replacing regular compressed air, which is concentrated oxygen, with concentrated nitrogen is that it won’t cause resistance allowing you to use less fuel overall. This is beneficial since the fuel economy is at its worse and the less fuel we use on a daily basis the better it will be on our pockets.

Nitrogen doesn’t change temperature much when the car is in motion. High temperatures can damage the tread of the tyres plus it can cause wear and damage. The quality of the tyre endures also because the pressure within it doesn’t drop rapidly causing wear on the edges of the tyre.

With this relatively new inflation technique, the tyre and the tread have better grip. The improved grip comes from the strong resistance to pressure leaving the extruding parts to remain “popped out”. The weight of the car plus the motion when driving applies high force on the tyre which leads to deflation.

Nitrogen Inflation is perfect for all weather conditions because of its ability to retain tyre pressure in any temperature. Nitrogen also has less humidity and is less prone to create water inside the tyre. Water and moisture inside the rubber could cause terrible rotting leaving you with a destroyed element that will need to be replaced. Because nitrogen has less moisture in its composition, it is lighter than normal air.

Many racers would choose to have their tyres filled with nitrogen gas because of how light and efficient it will make the racing process. There will be less friction on the track and less wear on unnecessary parts of the rubber.

When choosing different accessories and installations for your car, it is wise to consider those items that will lead you to spend less money in the long run. This means that you need to find parts and components that will allow the car to use less fuel. Nitrogen tyre inflation is a very good option when it comes to being economical as not only is it lighter in weight and light on fuel but it also helps the environment and causes less gas to escape the car.

Custom License Plate Design

The text Should be Brief

The text on the plate should be brief. Others will view your tag from a distance. They may be on the go while viewing your tag. So, each item on the plate should be large enough for immediate legibility and recognition. Moreover, it may be tempting to cram in a lot of information but it will make the tag illegible.

What you need to do is pick the most important things, such as name, tagline or slogan. Ideally, we suggest that you choose only three elements for the plate. In fact, you should choose less than 3 items, especially if you have a powerful, well-designed logo or other symbol that identifies you.

Make Your Design Simple

For graphics, we suggest that you go for a simple version of the artwork. Keep in mind that it should be read from a distance. Too much detail may make it look muddled. Instead of a few small art pieces around the tag, you can opt for a big graphic.

If the name of your organization is composed of several words, we suggest that you choose two or three words that identify your organization. You don’t have to use all the words. If you have to use all of the words, we suggest that you bold two or three words and leave the rest in small.

Working With Type

For typeface selection, we suggest that you opt for bold typeface. Ideally, you should go for typefaces that can condense properly if needed. They should remain legible and should not look distorted. So, these are a few tips that you may want to consider when working with type.

Available space

If you really want to condense type, we suggest that you don’t condense it too much, especially if you want to condense the type electronically. Overdoing it can make it look squished or distorted. Moreover, it will be more difficult to read and the image will be unprofessional and amateurish. To get the most out of the available space, you may want to choose only the words that are needed. You have to use your common sense and don’t let things become distorted.

Window Tint Laws

California

Well known for strict safety regulations, especially as it relates to motor vehicles, the Golden State has one of the most onerous window tint laws in the country. As with most states, the back side windows and the rear window are not subject to any restrictions on darkness, but they cannot be more reflective than a standard screen, meaning that a mirror finish will get you a ticket in a hurry. California only allows non-reflective darkening on the top four inches of the front windshield and the front side windows, and the cover must allow at least 70% of the light through. If you get pulled over for a violation, the first offense is a fairly minor affair. The police will cite you with a “fix it” ticket, requiring you to bring the glass into compliance within a specified period and pay a nominal $25 fine. If you fail to comply with this initial citation, however, the second stop could cost up to $200.

Michigan

Up in the Great Lakes state, the northern sun can hit you right between the eyes in the summer. But you’ll have to invest in a pair of polarized sunglasses if you want to completely block it out. Like almost every state, Michigan doesn’t place any restrictions on the level of shading that a driver can have on the rear and back side panels, but it also doesn’t apply its standard as a percentage of sunlight that can be let through. On the front windshield as well as the front side panes, a driver can only have a strip of coverage for the top four inches. This makes the law much easier to enforce since officers don’t have to make a guess of how much light is being let through. Earlier this year, an interstate drug smuggler was busted after he took a ride from Wisconsin, where a 50% standard is used, and he was promptly pulled over. Michigan does make an exception for people with medical needs who are more sensitive than normal to light.

New Mexico

The land of enchantment is also the land of searing desert heat. In the summers, the days can climb well into the triple digits for weeks on end. In that heat, cars sitting out in the sun can become ovens. It’s understandable, then, that New Mexico has the least restrictive window tint regulations in the country. On all sides but the front, a driver’s panes need only let in 20% sunlight, essentially limousine level.

Spruce Up Used Cars

A Warming Or Cooling Seat Pad

Most new vehicles are equipped with seats that will warm up at the touch of a button. This feature can be a lifesaver on particularly cold winter days, and it is considered standard in many recent models. The same effect can be achieved in an older vehicle by purchasing a seat pad. Easy to install, they bring a little luxury to an older automobile. Simply place the pad on the seat and plug it into the 12-volt outlet. Some heating pads even offer cooling settings for hot summer days, which is an amenity not commonly found in brand new automobiles.

Seat Covers

Many used cars can also be spruced up with the addition of seat covers. If the seats seem dirty or worn out, new covers can make a dramatic difference. This small investment can create a whole new feel in an older vehicle. Some seat covers are tailored to a specific make and model, but more generic options can be found at an auto parts store. For large trucks or vans, it may be difficult to find the right covers, so it may be necessary to special order them from a manufacturer.

The Headliner

The headliner, which is the fabric lining the interior roof, can sometimes become dirty or possibly even fall or droop. Even though this can make an automobile appear very outdated, the upgrade to fix this problem is quick and easy. Headliners come in a variety of colors, and some even feature designs for those who wish to customize the interior.

A Fun Hitch Cover

For used cars or trucks that have a hitch, it can be fun to change out the hitch cover. It might not exactly make the vehicle look brand new, but it will help add some personalization. Some hitch covers come in standard chrome. However, they are also available in a variety of shapes and styles including light up options. Some people purchase hitch covers that feature their favorite sports team’s logo or display an image for a cause they support.
