Tire Myths

Tires are a vital part of every car and how one billion cars get from point A to point B. Some of these truths and myths make sense, they are the ones we have heard of but some will surprise you on how crazy they are and how we never knew that before. So what are these crazy tire myths and the truths about them you ask, keep reading to find out.

tire mythCrazy tire myth number one:

Car manufactures and tire manufactures have printed on the inside of the car or on the outside of the tire on how full to fill your tire, this is the tire pressure or PSI. But what you probably didn’t know is that it is a myth that tires need to be inflated based on this number. The number provided is actually the maximum that the tires should be filled to, anything more than this and your tire could cause some major accidents or even burst.

Crazy tire myth number two:

Another crazy tire myth is that lowering the tire pressure will better the grip you get on wet surfaces. This is actually really dangerous because then the tire grooves that are there to help disperse the water actually trap the water in the tire giving you less grip on the road and giving the potential risk of hydroplaning or having your car lock up; become a greater possibility.

Crazy tire myth number three:

During the summer time, the air in tires expands due to high temperatures and thus tire pressure should be reduced by a few PSI. This is a big myth, since the rubber on the tires keeps the heat from getting in. The air pressure inside the tire will stay the same temperature if the pressure stays the same. However, if you do reduce the tire pressure the temperature of the tire pressure will heat up since there is less pressure which will cause the tire walls to flex or bend. We advise you to maintain the company recommended PSI even during summer months.

Crazy tire myth number four:

Tire pressure should be reduced in the winter months to improve handling. As we just mentioned, you should not reduce the tire pressure in the summer and you should never reduce the tire pressure in the winter either. In fact, during the winter time you should increase the tire pressure by 2 PSI for every 3-4 degree drop in temperature.

Crazy tire myth number five:

Winter tires are only required during snowfall. This one is a simple one, if you stay in a place where the temperature is below 10 degrees we suggest winter tires for the sole purpose of they are better equipped to handle extreme cold than regular tires are. Even if it isn’t snowing there or it never snows there, if the temperature drops below 10 degrees you should have winter tires on.

Crazy tire myth number six:

Valve caps are used to prevent the tire from losing pressure. This one is one of the craziest but the truest tire myths at the same time. Valve caps are used to prevent dust, water, mud and other things from getting into your tire and causing air pressure loss. So you could make the assumption that valve caps are used to prevent tire air pressure loss but you would be missing the crucial point as to how the tire would lose the air pressure.

GO15Not only will the tires help your car become more efficient but so will GO15. When you use GO15 engine treatment there is an improvement in the ring to cylinder wall seal. This reduces gas blow-by, increases compression and therefore delivers more power and less fuel wasted. In effect, GO15 creates a Higher Combustion Efficiency resulting in improved mileage and performance.

No matter where you are in the world and what the weather is like there, you should always check your tire pressure once a week to make sure you have no leaks and you are driving safely everywhere you go. And, don’t forget the GO15 in your car to help it run smoother and more efficiently.

How do gas prices effect your engine treatment?

The more you spend on gas, the more you spend on the engine of your car and the engine treatment then too. The cost of gas has always been going up, so then the cost for engine treatment has been increasing too. And with the steady increase in gas comes the pain we feel when we see how much it is costing to fill that tank all the way up. But here in the United States we do feel less of a pain at the pump than most countries. There are only 5 countries that feel less of a pain at the pump than Americans do. Four of those five countries are OPEC (Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries) members; those five countries are Venezuela, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates and Luxembourg.  Despite the fact that gas is so expensive, we in America are lucky because we have access to GO15. GO15 will help increase your fuel economy and lengthen your engine’s life.

What Country pays the most for gas?

Save on Gas PricesThere are only two countries that have extreme pain at the pump. Pakistan and India both have a gallon of gas that costs more than one whole day worth of work. In Pakistan the average daily wage is $3.55 yet a gallon of gas costs $4.08.

Norway, however, has the most expensive gas price in the world. They are topping the list at $9.79 a gallon of gas. Even though their gas price is so high, it only costs Norwegians 3.6% of their daily income to pay for a gallon of gas.

GO15 Helps Reduce the impact of Gas Prices

Although when it comes to the consumption of gas, Americans are number one, at 1.2 gallons per person each day. That is 31% more than Canadians who are number two in consumption. While our average daily consumption is the highest in the world, our percentage of daily income spent on gas is average, if not less than average of that of the rest of the world. Americans average a daily income of $151 and of that we spend 2.5% of it to buy gas.

2014 Trucks with Worst Fuel Economy

Below is a list of the 2014 vehicles with the worst fuel economy. Each vehicle class had a few cars that fell behind in the fuel efficiency category and could use some improvement in the upcoming years. This data comes from the fueleconomy.gov website.


If you are an owner of one of these trucks and the cost of gas is a burden on you, GO15 engine treatment can help. Not only will you get better gas mileage and increase your fuel economy, but your engine will last longer and run better.

These reductions in surface tension reduce the metal-to-metal friction and result in an improvement in all of the fundamental operating efficiencies including increased fuel mileage, longer engine life and a significant lowering of emissions.


What is the best engine treatment and engine cleaner?

As professionals for more than 25 years in the auto industry, we have seen many oil additives and engine treatments/restorers, most of which do not benefit the oil or engine.

Marketing today leads the consumer to believe they need to change their oil every 10,000 miles. This is actually hurting the automotive service business, however benefiting the manufacturer with increased levels of later life repairs.

Our company has been maintaining a new state of the art Mercedes for 15 years, among others. Continuing to change the oil at 3000-3500 miles and this car has never had an engine blow, or has been severely damaged, dirty or in need of a ‘chemical cleaning’. In fact, some gunk is good.

There are few engine oil treatments that actually help increase friction modifiers in conventional and synthetic oils. Oil longevity and clean engines can only really result from frequent oil changes…far more frequent than manufacturers typical recommend. Friction modifiers/oil engine treatments are supposed to make oil do a better job, by giving oil help to protect against high friction/metal to metal contact areas in the engine.

For our company, a better way to address engine wear is to repair the engine where the friction and metal to metal contact is. Using a product from Engineous USA, Inc. called GO15 engine treatment, repairs the damage and restores the metal surfaces to like new. Some of the great byproducts are a cleaner engine, cleaner engine oil, more power, increase fuel economy, and less pollution. The clean engine part is done naturally. The product bonds with the metal surfaces, thereby releasing the dirt because it bonds under it.

GO15 is not an engine cleaner, but it is an engine treatment designed to help repair friction causes, and it lets the engine oil do what it supposed to, and naturally friction is noticeably reduced. GO15 is added to the engine oil, but it only used the oil as a delivery mechanism to get to the parts it can work on best.
