placements for Worn or dam- aged tires, or Inst~tlling win- ter tires, is made a little eas- ier by some suggestions of- fered by the Rubber Manu- facturers Association (RMA). First, never buy a smaller size than those which came with the car, says RMA. Tires should always be replaced with the same designation, or approved options, as rec- ommended by the automo- bile manufacturer. Also, if you're considering replacing conventional sized tires such as 7.75x 14, etc. with a set of new radials, belted bias or the wider tread profiles ("70 Series," "78 Se- ries"), be sure to check the automobile manufacturer's or tire dealer's recommenda- tions. Why It's Recommended Interchangeabllity of dif- ferent types of tires is not always possible, due to dif- ferences in load rating, tire dimensions, wheel well clear- ances and rim sizes, particu- larly with older cars. On the question of mixing different types of tires on the same car, the association suggests that for best all- around performance it's best to use the same type of tire on all four wheel positions. In the case of radial tires, mixing is definitely ruled out. Due to differences in handling characteristics, they should be used only in sets of four. RMA also notes that while the wider tread "70 Series" tires can be mixed with con- ventional tires, they should only be used in pairs on the same axle. For Extra Protection When buying a pair of re- placement tires in the same size and construction, the as- sociation suggests that they be put on the rear wheels for better traction, handling and extra protection against fiats. bought,, It should he paired on the rear ax/e with the tlre having the most tread depth of the other three. The tire industry also rec- od for all new or previously unused tires -- the tires on a new car, the spare put on after a fiat and all replace- ments. Limiting speed to 60 University Study... Air Pollution They came to get a free tune-up. They left with the realization that a neglected engine is a major contributor to the air pollution problem. When engineering students at the University of Detroit decided to help observe En- gineering Week by offering free tune-ups to the public, the students did not antici- pate the response. Seeking to dramatize the effects of undermaintcnance on harmful emissions, the students found 150 cars wait- ing in line at a campus facil- ity. It was more than they could handle so they invited excess numbers of car own- ers back for a tune-up the following Week. Additional openings for the second week's clinics were exhausted in 15 minutes as the public phoned in for appointments. What was the result of the Clinic's study? After tune-up the average hydrocarbon emissions were reduced 52 percent. And the average carbon monoxide emissions were re- duced 58 percent. According to clinic organ- izers Bob Kaczorowski and John Smreker, "The goals that were set for the tune-up were 400 parts per million of hydrocarbons and 2.0% car- bon monoxide. The average HC reading coming in was 644 PPM. The average CO count was 3.06 percent. "After tune-up the average HC count was 812 and the average CO count was 1.3 percent." m.pka .for dbe.ffFsf, 80. driving enables the many complex e!ements in a tire to adjust gradually to each other and function as an in- tegral unit. spark pl, mL re ca. more than double the rate of hy- drocarbon emissions from a car's engine, according to Champion Spark Plug Com- pany.
