Do You Know Why Tires Are Black?

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, November 21, 2018

Just so you know, we buy cars even if the tires are purple… well, maybe we’re just lucky tires are black. Regardless, if your tires are purple, green, yellow, or blue ask us if you can sell your car to us. No matter the color, we’ll still give you a high instant cash offer. The question up top though, is do you know why tires are black? Here’s a tidbit of info you may not know or never really noticed on classics, tires were white up until around WWI.


CarBuyerUSA - Sell Your Car

According to Michelin Tire, “Original tires had a lighter shade because of the natural color of rubber.” Somewhere in 1917, fine manufactured soot called carbon black began being added to the rubber compound resulting in large increase in wear resistance, and Michelin launched its first black tires. They called them “Universal Tread Covers” and used “all roads and all weather” as their advertisement slogan. Obviously, an increase in wear resistance increase tire longevity. Per Jack Koenig, award-winning chemical engineer, a tire without carbon black in the mix would get under 5,000 miles. I don’t think anyone would buy tires with that expectation. Another tidbit of information about carbon black is it’s about twenty-five to thirty percent of used tires composition today, and to boot in addition to added wear resistance, it also improves general road handling and grip, and aids in protecting a tire from harmful UV rays that cause cracking.

Though it’s not clear how much WWI influenced black tires, the fact remains it’s the time when zinc oxide was out carbon black was in.

Ok, now that you know why tires are black, let’s talk how we can get you to sell your car quick to us. It’s fast. It’s safe. It’s easy. Just fill out our short form, wait as little as 20-seconds get a HIGH INSTANT CASH OFFER, and when you like it… we buy cars and we put cash in your bank.

How to Fix 6 Mistakes Every Driver Makes

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, November 20, 2018

We hate to say it, but for years you may have been making these common mistakes, every driver is guilty of them. Being in this business where we buy cars inherently comes with sharing important information to drivers. We’re not here just so we can entice you to get an instant cash offer and sell your car to us. We buy cars for a business but definitely want you to be safe too so we’ve pulled together a check list of sorts for you on how to fix mistakes you may be making.

#1

Incorrect Use - Ventilation Recirculation Button Slows Down De-Fogging Windows

In the colder months, don’t use this button. It will take longer to de-fog the windows. (For hotter months, using this button will allow your car air conditioner to cool faster.)

#2

Not Engaging the Parking Brake On with Automatics

You may think the parking brake is just for a standard transmission, but think again. Vehicles are heavy and should always be used when parking on a hill to lessen the stress on an automatic transmission. Regardless of the transmission type in your car, it’s a good habit to always engage the parking brake.

#3

When In Traffic Not Allowing 3-4 Feet of Space Between You and The Car In Front Of You

You never know when the car in front of you will breakdown and you’ll need room to maneuver around. There’s also the possibility a driver coming up from behind you may not stop short of your rear bumper. Leaving space may help keep the car in front of you out of the fender bender.

#4

Not Using the Shortcut Buttons Mounted On the Steering-Wheel

These were not invented for convenience, though they really are convenient, but for safety reasons. Just make a conscious effort to make these buttons a go-to habit and an accident is much more unlikely.

#5

Not Checking the Tires

Does this sound like a simple and silly one to list? Think again. It’s one of the things people ignore. The law in most states requires tires to have at minimum 2/23 of an inch of tread.

You can check this by placing a penny inside the groove of the treads. Make sure Abraham Lincoln’s head is facing you and upside down. If you can see his entire head, you need a new tire(s).

#6

Accepting the Fact and Ignoring You Have a Blind Spot OR Are In A blind Spot!

Drivers OFTEN do not pay attention to this enough or at all. When did so many people stop paying attention to this? I can’t tell you how many times a driver has started to ease on over into my lane. There’s just one problem with this; my car is in the exact spot he’s easing into!

This situation can be a perilous leading to an accident, injury, or worse. Since you really can’t put your faith in the other driver, it’s up to you to be on the defense and ease back a little or move forward ahead of a driver if you think you may be in their blind spot.

And remember this, you must do MORE than glance at your side view mirrors to insure there is no one in YOUR blind spots.

Final Words

Even if you may have been committing these driving no-no’s, it’s never too late to make new habits, and healthy ones at that. Being proactively on guard when driving out on the roads is definitely, how to fix mistakes every driver makes. Even if not all of these in our list feel familiar to you, think about them the next time you hit the road. If any of these are happening, it’s time for a new habit. And remember, you can get an instant cash offer now by simply filling out our short form and sell your car quick. We buy cars the FAST, SAFE, and EASY way and put FAST CASH in your bank!

Every State Where Your Car Has a Good Chance of Being Stolen

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, November 20, 2018

In 2017, across the U.S. 773,139 auto thefts occurred. That’s a 7% increase over 2016’s record making it 237.4 for every 100,000 people. Using the National Insurance Crime Bureaus collected data, 24/7 Wall St. pulled together a list of the city in every state where your car has a good chance of being stolen. If you have your car sitting with a for sale sign in the window in one these cities in listed, you might want to get an instant cash offer and sell your car to us. We buy cars fast, safe, and easy and pay you more than you’ll find anywhere else. 

Obviously, where a person lives can greatly affect the chances of car theft, and a city with a high car theft rate does not equate to a high crime area, nor does it indicate a poor community. It simply means for whatever the reason, they are target cities. The majority of all 50 cities have higher education levels, low poverty rates, and household incomes higher when compared to statewide figures.

U.S. auto thefts, more than not, are highly lucrative and meticulously planned schemes for evading capture. Large crime ring organizations running massive operations, according to the NICB, are often the ones behind these crimes operating inside certain major cities.

You might think the expensive cars, exotics for instance, would be on the hit list, but Honda Civics and Accords, Ford pickup trucks and Chevrolets are by far the highest targets; especially older vehicles without modern security you find in newer models.

Tomorrow's Trucks – Faster, Safer, and More Efficient 5G Will Change Their Future

Joseph Coupal - Monday, November 19, 2018

There’s a lot of hype about 5G wireless networks centering on faster speeds for data on laptops and phones, but there’s a slew of devices that stand to benefit from a more quick and robust connection. The cars of tomorrow are set to get in on the action too. We may not be able to purchase cars with 5G yet, but we’re looking forward to it. We buy cars in any condition and give you an instant cash offer that can’t be beat. Don’t believe us? Get your quote now and we’re betting you’ll sell your car quick! How will the faster, safer, and more efficient 5G change tomorrow’s cars? Let’s take a look.

In 2019, major U.S. carriers will be activating their 5G wireless networks… for devices already in existence, and those that will be the next generation for those devices too. What about cars? From the hype online, that’s still a few years away but when it does hit the road, vehicle owners will see benefits similar to a smartphone. Cool, right?

Taking the Web on the Road with You

We’re seeing modern cars of today equipped with some kind of local area Wi-Fi hotspot feature allowing passengers to use their cell phones to share an onboard 4G LTE connection. Let’s face it, LTE is fast, but when the 5G comes along, 4G is old news.

5G’s bandwidth and speed will increase so even all seats in a 7-passenger vehicle will be able to stream different Netflix shows without a glitch. That’s impressive stuff right there.

Cabins featuring the K-Byte and M-Bytes will sport a massive display screen that connects to the Internet in 5G mode! Don’t think automakers won’t be able to give you more with that extra bandwidth. How does more info in that dashboard and rich media sound?

Connecting the car to 5G benefits both the manufacturer and the consumer. They get more data from/about you and you get more things you never knew you needed in a car. What about that connection lag when you attempt to unlock your car with a smartwatch or cell phone? With 5G, it will be ridiculously fast, like instantaneous.

An electric car is a connected car with more cars moving toward electrification in the future. If it’s a plug-in hybrid or a full-battery electric car, Internet capabilities are coming for them. No more smartphone needed to search for those charging stations. Honestly, they’re already connect to the web in some way. By the way, we buy cars operated with gasoline or those running on electric. If you own an electric car, don’t hesitate to get a quote and sell your car to us. We’ll jump on it too!

Autonomy vehicles are already being tested and it won’t be long before we’re all sharing the road with them. You guessed it, these will have 5G available to them too, but can we all say safer?

From Now to the Future

From more commuting entertainment to smarter self-driving vehicles, to more efficiency, we’re coming into what you’ll find as just the tip of an iceberg. The possibilities are limited only to one’s imagination and as we all know, those are endless.

CarBuyerUSA.com cannot wait to purchase our first 5G car, but for now, we buy cars with 4G LTE and those without it.
