Even though many auto technicians have unraveled the myth of the 3,000-mile oil change, there is a lot of contradictory information about engine oil, what type to use and how often to change it. Experts agree that today's cars should have oil changes at the recommended intervals as stated in their owner's manual or when the car's "oil change" light appears. Oil change experts and car manufacturers say that because the chemistry of oil combined with the technology of engines has advanced in recent years, the recommended interval for oil changes has lengthened considerably. Depending on the make and model of your vehicle, that interval could be anywhere between 5,000 and 15,000 miles.

Well, winter has past and now your snow tires are just sitting in a corner of your garage. As part of proper tire service and maintenance, proper storage is important. Just setting that extra set of tires off in the corner of your garage isn't enough. To maintain the appearance and performance of your tires, they should be stored properly. Before you "put your tires on the shelf," inspect them for uneven wear and make sure they have received the appropriate tire service to repair any damage.
