Aloha Friday Aug. 27th


Welcome to this week’s edition of Aloha Friday. In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too.



Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response. If you’d like to participate, just post your own question on your blog and leave your link below. Don’t forget to visit the other participants! It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends!

My Question: What is your favorite type of movie?

My Answer: I love a good comedy such as Old School, Something About Mary or American Pie. I can’t go to the movies because I embarrass myself laughing so hard & long. If it’s a good one like Van Wilder I laugh so hard I have tears rolling out of my eyes & I can't catch my breath!! Gotta have fun in life :)

Closed: Cool For School Event: Goodwrench Tire Safety - Good Tips and a Giveaway

Tire Pressure




Maximize your tires' performance and durability by monitoring and maintaining correct air pressure.


Air is a gas, expanding when heated and contracting when cooled. For most of North America, fall and early winter are especially important times for checking tire pressure – as the ambient temperature falls, tire pressure goes down.


A good rule of thumb is that every 10 degrees Fahrenheit temperature change, tire pressure changes about 1 psi – higher as temperature rise, lower as they fall. Also, check your vehicle's Owner's Manual for recommended tire pressure.


Under-inflated tires can cause:


Premature or irregular wear
Poor handling
Reduced fuel economy
Over-inflated tires can cause:
Unusual wear
Poor handling
Reduced fuel economy
Checking Air Pressure


Check your vehicle's tires at least once a month, when the tires are cold (let the vehicle sit for at least 3 hours). Look in your owner's manual for the recommended tire inflation for your vehicle. Use a quality gauge. Don't "eyeball" tires – radial tires can look fine even when they're under-inflated.


Be sure to look for objects that have become wedged in the tread – they can work themselves further into the tire and cause air loss.


And don't forget to check the spare!


One lucky person will win an official baseball cap that the Goodwrench technicians wear and tire-tread card that the technicians use!!
