Grand touring tire comfort and all-weather traction…drivers of light trucks, crossovers and SUVs can get the best of both worlds with the BF Goodrich Long Trail T/A Tour. It’s a quiet, smooth-riding tire that can eat up mile after highway mile in even the worst conditions.
The Long Trail T/A Tour uses an all-season rubber formulation, molded into a symmetric tread pattern with independent shoulder blocks, a rigid center rib for straight-line stability and notched intermediate ribs for precise handling. Sipes are distributed around the tread blocks for extra biting edges and enhanced traction in wet and wintry weather.
Internally, the Long Trail T/A Tour uses two steel belts and ...[more]

At Chabill’s Tire & Auto Service in Baton Rouge, LA, we do a lot of brake service on customers’ vehicles. Not surprisingly, we also get a lot of questions about brake repair, so we’d like to clear a few of them up here.
My brakes are making a pretty loud squeal when I step on them. Do I need brake service?
Not necessarily. Sometimes brake squeal is coming from a simple vibration between the brake rotor and the pads. In these cases, there are aerosol products and other compounds that can quiet brake squeal.
What kind of noises do worn brakes make, then?
Most brake pads are designed with a we ...[more]

Drivers of light trucks and SUVs who are looking for great off-road performance along with low noise and good road manners are able to get the best of both worlds with the BF Goodrich All-Terrain T/A KO. The All-Terrain T/A KO is designed with a chunky, computer-optimized all-terrain tread pattern. The high void ratio helps to clean mud and debris from the treads, with interlocking tread blocks and a dense sipe pattern for wet-weather traction and low highway noise. On the edges of the tread, “Shoulder Lock” traction bars let the tire dig in and claw at deep dirt and sand surfaces for aired-down off-road performance.
Internally, the All-Terrain T/A KO is designed with twin steel belts a ...[more]

At Chabill’s Tire & Auto Service in Lafayette, LA, wheel alignments are a big part of the services that we offer. Not surprisingly, we do get questions about wheel alignments from time to time, and we’d like to hopefully clear a few of them up.
What exactly is wheel alignment?
When your car leaves the factory, the wheels are set at very specific angles in relation to each other and to the car’s frame. Engineers set these angles for optimum ride quality, handling and steering response. In time, with enough wear and tear, your steering and suspension components will drift away from those alignment specs, and your car will begin to show premature tire wear and handling/drivability problems.

Innovation and “green” design come together in Michelin’s Primacy MXM4, a grand touring tire for luxury sedan and coupe drivers who want low noise and ride comfort along with great all-weather handling.

It’s molded into an asymmetric tread design with a European-style tread profile and rounder shoulders for predictable cornering ability. The circumferential grooves channel water away from the tire’s contact patch for enhanced wet-weather grip, with Michelin’s exclusive 3-D Variable Thickness Sipe Technology for added biting edges in ...[more]

Let’s talk for a moment about tire pressure.
Every tire flexes a little at the bottom, as the weight of the vehicle bears down on it. The section that is subject to that weight and flexing changes constantly as the tire rotates, and the average tire rotates 750 times over the course of a mile. At 60 mph, that means the tire rotates 750 times per minute. All that flexing and deformation means heat buildup, and increases tire pressure by roughly four pounds per square inch (PSI). After an hour or so on the road, a tire is about 50 degrees hotter than ambient air…but that temperature differential is even greater in hot weather, especially since pavement is hotter than ambient air. Heavier loads and higher speeds will add to that heat buildup.
