A tire is a tire is a tire! (?)

Assaf Murkes Uncategorized

If you check out the pictures from the last post you can see that my tire (beside having a screw in it..) had far too many cracks and was too old to be driven on. And so, when I got to my tire shop I promptly told them that I need both my rear tires changed. And now comes the …

Assaf Murkes Uncategorized

Now, you may ask how come I feel lucky about an annoying thing like that. Well, as I see it I could have ended up with a flat tire from driving over a screw but amazingly my tire holds it’s pressure! so you see – I was lucky. As my situation was not catastrophic (yet) I could think about it and do some research which I’m more …

It just hit me that after writing so much on the importance of the tires you may ask yourself “so why is it made from rubber and not some high tech stuff?” Well, I am happy to tell you that the good men and women of the tire industry thought the same for the last few decades and our tires now are considered the …

Coming back from a few weeks of enjoying myself in the far east i must share some thoughts i had while traveling on some home-made tricycles and jeepneys in rural areas. A place where the concept of an air pump is more obscure than that of a working gas station that sells gas from the pump and not from 1 liter glass …

Are you ready for the holidays?

Some vacation time at last, it’s time to pack up the kids and show them that there is more to life than sitting in front of the computer. No disrespect to Facebook, but this is an opportunity to visit some real friends, see grandma’s new painting, have a picnic or hike up a mountain to get a glimpse of that …

Did anyone lose a tire?

Assaf Murkes Uncategorized

While driving down the highway just yesterday I couldn’t help but noticing that every couple of minutes there was a blown tire carcass on the side of the road. and I ask myself – how can people drive past all that rubber, knowing that most of that happened due to low tire pressure or worn tire and still won’t check …
