New Tire Technology Amazes Bay Auto Zone

While we offer a wide selection of used
cars
to drivers in the greater Toronto,
ON
area here at Bay Auto Zone, we like to
stay on
top of the latest automotive technology. That's because there's always
something
you can outfit to your vehicle, and improve your experience behind the
wheel.
Today, we'd like to discuss some innovative new tires would certainly be
practical for all of us.

The general rule of thumb for determining if you
need a new set of tires was to stick a coin between the tread. Now, the
tires
will be able to tell us when it's time.

The Discolor Tyre (that's how it's spelled using the king's English), designed by Gao Fenglin and Zhou Buyi, has a
colored
rubber underneath the black surface of a tire. When the tread gets worn
to a
certain point, the bright orange will reveal itself and let you know
you're
ready to get new ones. Of course, you'll also be able to spot and tears
or
leaks in your tire this way as well. Both designers believe you can get
12,000
miles out of their Discolor Tyres before you'll see the
discoloration.

Pretty cool, right?

Of course, there are still a few hurdles for these
innovative new tires to jump through before we see them on the
marketplace.
Still, we remain hopeful.

If you'd like to learn more car tips or about some
of the technology coming out of the automotive world, subscribe to the
Bay Auto Zone
blog
today.

In the meantime, you can stop in and visit our
showroom of gently used luxury vehicles located at 1017 Finch
Ave. W

where we'd be happy to discuss used car options
