Here’s a cool truck efficiency tip its a spare tire repair kit and air compressor keep on and every vehicle it cost you about 25 bucks per kid but it’s totally worth it my friend
There is not a ‘one-tire-fits-all’ car or truck tire with today’s technologically-advanced vehicles. In this video we discuss the differences in tread patterns and how they differ for standard family cars, high performance vehicles, German or other luxury cars and all terrain vehicles. Make sure that the tread pattern of your new tire is the best ‘fit’ for your vehicle. Call us at DW Campbell Goodyear at 770-620-200 for a free tire inspection.

Fix Threads On Skateboard Longboard Truck Axle
Damaged skateboard truck axle threads are caused from hitting the axle on the ground. Sometimes the axle nut gets ruined when being removing from a damaged axle. So you’ll need to replace the nut when repairing the axle or the nut can ruin it again.
A die is a tool that every avid skateboarder should have in their tool box. Damaged threads are common and a die is the only tool that will fix an axle properly.
Tools You’ll Need:
5/16″ inch –24 Die with handle (24 means threads per inch, which is also labeled as “Fine”)
Where to get a Die:
You can purchase a die and handle at most hardware stores for around $10. AVOID a cheap set.
You can also purchase a skate tool with a die made by Reflex called the Utili-tool.
Steps for Rethreading A skateboard/Longboard Truck Axle:
1. Remove the nut from the axle, and take off your wheel.
If your nut won’t come off try using a flat head screwdriver to pry up the nut while you turn the nut. If your bearing is stuck to your axle or hanger hit it with a hammer.
2. Remove the die from the handle and place the die on the axle. It may be a lot easier to get the die on without the handle. Plus, as you turn the handle you can lift the handle off the die since the deck will be in the way as you turn. Remove the die from the handle by loosening the tiny pin on the side of the handle.
3. Before turning the handle with the die inside make sure the die is perfectly perpendicular or flat against the axle. If it’s not you can ruin the threads or destroy the threads completely. This takes a lot of force so you’ll know right away to avoid causing permanent damage.
4. You only need to go down as much as the axle is damaged, so it may only be a few turns.
5. Replace the axle nut with a new one. when taking the truck axle nut off the threads inside it typically get damaged. Your original nut can ruin your axle threads all over again if you put it back on.
If you have problems with your truck kingpin bolt and want to rethread it the correct size die is 3/8″ inch –24.

I know the risks of taking out a power truck into mud.. and today I paid the price. My rear axle was giving me an issue.. and instead of packing it in for the day – I figured I would show YOU how easy it is to diagnose an issue, and do a repair on the go. As long as you are well supplied in your kit – you should be able to have most parts and tools on hand. Today, I needed a bearing swap. Because I had more then 1 bearing in my repair kit, I swapped out two before I was done.
Once this was done, I was able to continue on.. until a mysterious sound was heard.. But I guess thats for another video…
