106 St Tire & Wheel....we love educating consumers about cars, tires, environmental issues, that's why we are NYC's premier tire and wheel dealer

March 3rd, 2014

Your VIN number says many things about you car like where it was made...and a part of it is something you should memorize

if you order parts or want to ask about parts and pricing....count to the 8th digit. It may be a letter or a number. Memorize it.

What that stands for is the engine type you have. Today, I ordered some parts for my own car through 106 St Tire.

Turns out the 8th letter or number told our supplier that I needed a 120 volt alternator rather than a 140 volt

one. Who knew?

106 St Tire and Wheel loves giving customers helpful information...it's what sets us apart here in NYC,

Queens and Brooklyn. 106 St Tire cares about its customers and we take a proactive role in helping you know more.

Here's something else you should know....Park indoors? You need to recognize that when you take your nice warm

car out into the freezing weather your tires may require additional compressed air.

Come on by one of our locations, we will check your tire pressure free, fill your tires free, inspect your tires for safety

and even give you a free 47 point safety check free.
