    Tyre replacements are indeed costly car maintenance. However, you cannot avoid it completely. Have you ever noticed that you can make your tyres last longer? Though it is not possible to have tyres immune forever, you can eventually delay the wear and tear, which probably helps in saving some money as well as staying away from flat tyres.

    Usually, a car tyre travels comfortably up to 75,000 km (considering the fact that there would not be too many flat tyre incidents).

    It might be necessary to see a mechanic if your car is vibrating excessively, taking longer to brake, or doesn't handle turns or wet roads the way you're used to. Maybe you need some sort of remediation, or maybe it's time for new tyres.

    However, there are methods available to give your car's tyres a longer life. Since you would like to drive your vehicle with the best possible tyres, old tyres pose a lot of threats on the road.

    Inflate The Tyres Properly

    Tyre pressure is a top priority because it affects a tyre's overall health. As traction increases with the surface of the road, a tyre with low pressure typically experiences higher wear and tear. Tyres that are under-inflated use more gas and make driving hazardous. As a result, you must always maintain the ideal tyre pressure.

    On the other hand, an overinflated tyre is risky too, as it poses the threat of a tyre blast while driving.

    It’s just feeding you the right kind of diet for better and sustainable health. You can refer to the user manual for the correct level of tyre pressure. Besides, make sure to get your vehicle's tyres checked at a professional service centre such as Service My Car.

    Keep Your Vehicle’s Heels In Proper Alignment

    Since wheels receive all the necessary power through the transmission to push the wheels and make a vehicle mobile, there are certain technicalities so that vehicle can run forward seamlessly. In simple language, each wheel should be in certain alignment with the other or each wheel in a set (either front or rear) should run in parallel.

    If there is any deviation, the wheel can harm the corresponding tyre when it does not run straight. However, the tyre starts to wear out on a particular side and is clearly visible to the naked eye.

    The most common sign of bad wheel alignment is vehicle drags to one side, specifically when you leave the steering.

    To keep wheels intact, it does not require too much than visiting a service centre such as Service My Car instantly. 

    Avoid Driving On Bad Roads With A Rough Surface And Potholes

    Car tyres are better suited to roads with a smooth or even surface than those with a rough or uneven surface. Even bad roads take a toll on the tyres. You can easily tell the difference when your vehicle runs on proper roads as opposed to rough surfaces.

    By carefully driving and parking your car, you can extend the life of your tyres. Avoid rocky areas because even a small pothole can severely harm your tyres.

    Never Forget The Rotation Of Tyres

    Tyres do rotate while your vehicle runs on the road. But, the real meaning of tyre rotation is about changing the both front tyres to the rear and vice versa.

    As a vehicle carries the engine at the front, obviously the front tyres have more loads, and they generally wear out more rapidly as compared to the rear ones.

    If you didn't rotate your tyres, the front ones would probably wear out before the rear ones did. If this happens, you are at risk of an accident, especially in wet weather.

    The tyre manufacturers usually recommend tyre rotation every 10,000 kilometres. However, this is not a limit if you opt for tyre rotation as early as 5,000 km. Then, there would not be any problem either even your tyres would be in great condition for a longer time.

    Service My Car assists you in your car’s tyre rotation. However, you should visit to the one of the nearest workshop.

    Be Easy With Your Car And Its Tyres

    Simple things frequently have significant effects. Your driving habits, though, have a significant positive impact on the tyres in addition to the rest of the car. Simply put, when you apply hard brakes, the car typically slides, and if this happens too frequently, the tyre's surface may become unevenly patched.

    When treads start to wear down over the tyre surface, this becomes visible. As obvious as this may sound, the way you drive has a significant impact on how quickly and how long your tyres will last.

    However, there is no problem spending money to buy a new set of tyres. But if you can make them live longer, it is healthier for your budget too.

    Beside, tyres in good condition usually help in maintaining good mileage and have better traction than worn tyres. For more advice, you can contact an adviser through the Service My Car app. Here, you can also book a car service or order a car repair quote.

    When it comes to servicing or repairs, many car owners often find themselves confused. There are two options available – the first is independent service centres and the second is an authorized car maintenance centre.

    Before deciding on these factors, just consider multiple factors such as cost of service, integrity, reputation, and competence of the mechanic, and the reliability of the spare parts.

    However, there is a fair comparison of both available options. Here, you will get a fair analysis of various points so it would be easy to make a decision later on.

    Cost of services

    When it comes to the charges, the independent garages surely offer a lot of concessions to their customers when compared to the authorised service centres.

    However, there would be similar quality for a number of services such as car oil changes or oil filter replacement, while authentic parts are also available as per the manufacturer's recommendation.

    Therefore, an independent garage would not be a bad choice either when the cost of materials, such as engine oil or filters, is the same but labour costs differ significantly.

    And, if you wish to get your car serviced with reliability, Service My Car should be first and foremost choice. Here, you get all your automobile needs fulfilled at one stop.

    Complement services

    An independent garage gives value to its customer loyalty. If you utilize its services regularly for your car maintenance or repair while paying less as compared to the authorized service centre, there is no doubt that you will get some complementary services without any cost.

    If you continue your vehicle serviced locally, there would be other incentives. These cost cuttings become sufficient once they start to accumulate. However, an authorised service centre might have offers, but they do not deal with incentives and other complementary services.

    Today, even independent car garages are equipped with state-of-the-art facilities that you expect in an authorised service centre. Therefore, if there is quality as well as necessary infrastructure for your car, then saving some money would be a wise consideration.

    You can opt for Service My Car for all your car repair and maintenance needs.

    Specialisation for particular makes and models

    Nowadays, specialization is not only limited to authorise service centres. There are independent workshops that employ a number of competent mechanics to deal with a variety of makes and models. Many brands follow standard operating procedures (SOPs), and most independent garages follow the standard procedures as per the recommendation of the manufacturer.

    However, authorized service centres do follow the standard operating procedures (SOPs), but most of them have workload issues. Usually, you do not get your vehicle serviced on time and there is always some delay.

    You cannot even get that close to your vehicle during work. While independent garages allow you to keep abreast with the problems of your vehicle, there would be no ambiguity at all.

    Independent garages such as Service My Car take care of each and every requirement of a vehicle. There are a number of competent and experienced mechanics available to deal with ifs and buts of an automobile.

    Warranty consideration

    However, your car might still be covered by the warranty, so you might prefer an authentic facility in particular. However, there is no issue with choosing a local garage to get your vehicle fixed.

    Even though you can expect standardisation in some areas, it is important to keep in mind that not all authorised centres will provide services that are up to par; the services provided by various authorised centres may vary significantly.

    Additionally, it's a common misconception among car owners that servicing a vehicle at a neighbourhood shop will cause the warranty to expire. The warranty period of your vehicle is unaffected by where you take it for maintenance.

    Service My car has been serviced for automobile maintenance and repair needs for a while now. Pay a visit once; you won’t be unsatisfied by the service.

    Pick up and release benefits

    Most independent car garages provide pick up and release service from your own place. As the basic service does not require complex repair work, you can always save money as well as time for a service from a local garage such as Service My Car.

    However, you can also opt for a car repair from a local garage once you are satisfied. Today, the most reputed services provider deals in authentic auto spare parts when it comes to quality and customer satisfaction.

    Therefore, your visit to a local independent car garage is a win-win deal for both parties, where you get quality service at very low prices and the garage gets a chance to showcase its quality of service. If you need any type of car service & repair, service my car provides you free pickup and delivery at the nearest engine oil center.

    Among the monopoly of authorised service centres, Service My Car has been doing a fabulous job while serving its customers with the utmost satisfaction. You can own your flexibility even when it comes to the servicing or repair of your vehicle too. Book a car service or order a car repair order on our website or app anytime.

    Recently it has become apparent that I cannot use more than one / sometimes two condenser mics at a time.if I try to use more phantom power all inputs will cease working at all. No input shown on meters and no output. Yet all of my local inputs and aux inputs still work. And the output from the aux inputs operates fine.

    firmware is up to date.
    This only happens when more than one or two phantom powered devices are activated.

    The X32 is connected to the S32 by way of the AES50/cat5e cable to FOH. And this system has lived its entire life (7rs) in a Tavern and operated on avg 5-6 days per week. Never toured.

    Otherwise, the board seems fine on all scenes.

    I don't know whether the board or the stagebox is the problem.
    So I would like to know which component I should replace.

    Please advise

      Nigel67 Hi JeffreyBridges. Can I double check that the phantom power to the local inputs on the rear of the X32 is working absolutely fine, no matter how many condenser microphones you connect to the XLRs on the rear of the console, but the problem is when connecting them to the S32? If so, then the problem is in your S32. The power supply in the S32 that supplies the phantom voltage is faulty under load. Do all the other inputs on the S32 that do not require phantom power still work normally and any outputs assigned to the S32?

      JeffreyBridges I have selected ch25-32 to be local only on the X32. And they work fine. It is the first 24 ch that just cease to operate once I cross the threshold of too many phantom powered mics.

      • X32/S32 phantom power issue
        Nigel67 Apologies for the delay in replying but I didn't receive the notification. Inputs 1-24 are assigned to the S32 and they are the ones which are not working correctly. Therefore it is the power supply on the S32 that requires repair as this is where the phantom power for the S32 is derived from. If the S32 is still under warranty, please contact the shop that you purchased it from and they will organise a repair. If it is not under warranty, please contact one of our Authorised Service Centres from this link and they will book your unit in for repair.

    I am attempting to set up Adobe Audition 2022 with the Behringer UMC1820 interface, and not quite successful yet.  I am using a Windows 10 PC.  I am in the initial phases, and reading some of the posts here, am wondering if this is a reasonable pairing.  I don't mind a few workarounds, but I do want to know I will be able to successfully record  music with this setup.

    Are the two compatible, or should I look for a different DAW to use with the Behringer?
