Brake-O-Rama Tip: How to change a tire

At Brake-O-Rama we get a lot of questions regarding flat tires. After all, getting a flat is a real inconveniences especially now in the summer heat.  While calling an emergency towing service is always an option, if you are not a member or aren’t up for waiting, changing a tire is one of those things you can DIY (do-it-yourself). Here’s what to do.

Be aware of your surrounding when changing a tire.
Step by Step:Find out your vehicle owner’s manual for specifics like the location of the spare and jack kit. Also, be aware of your surroundings. If you do not feel safe, do not hesitate to call the local police for help.
  1. Remove the spare tire and jack from your vehicle. Using a pressure gauge, check the inflation level of your spare – if its pressure is too low, you’ll either need to find a place where you can inflate it or call a tow truck.
  2. Your jack kit should include a tire iron for removing the lug nuts. Use it to loosen the lug nuts on the flat tire, but don’t remove them yet. If you need to use a lot of force to get them loose, you don’t ever want to do it while the vehicle is already jacked up.
    LUG NUT: a fastener/nut that holds the tire onto the car. Use a tire iron to loosen it (above)
  3. Block the other tires to make sure the vehicle doesn’t roll.
  4. Raise the corner with the flat tire high enough off the ground to put the spare tire on. You should always avoid raising the vehicle any higher than you need to.
  5. Finish removing the lug nuts from the flat tire and pull it off.
  6. Put the spare tire on the vehicle.
  7. Replace the lug nuts, but don’t tighten them yet.
  8. Lower the vehicle by turning the jack in reverse.
  9. Tighten the lug nuts. After a few turns, rotate clockwise to tighten the next lug nut. Repeat this process until each lug nut is securely in place.
  10. Drive to you closest Brake-O-Rama. And if you have to use the Parkway or the Turnpike to get there, keep your vehicle under 55 mph and use your hazard lights because most spare tires are not designed to handle high speeds for long periods of time.
Your neighborhood Brake-O-Rama will be happy to assist you in finding a replacement tire. You can check our website for more helpful tips and maintenance advise.

For a serial entrepreneur like Zalman Silber, starting a business is the most natural thing to do. Considered by many to be the American dream, making a business succeed is like breathing air for walking success stories like him. Already a top performer for legendary New York Life, Zalman Silber really made his fortune with his inspired idea to place a virtual helicopter fly-over in the Empire State Building. In business for over a decade now, the ever-popular Skyride sees long lines every day. His other businesses testify to the wide range of his entrepreneurial interests, from marketing to financial management. But even a natural success story will agree that the hardest step is the first step.
For unlike the case of a Zalman Silber, many people will find that running a business is the most difficult thing they will ever do in life. According to the United States Small Business Administration, statistics show that as many as four out of five businesses fail during their first five years. Even at the ten-year mark the failure rate is significant. So part of what adds to the difficulty of that first step in starting up a business of your own will be such considerations as:
Do you know the business? Truly know it, inside-out. Don't just get into something because your current boss makes it all seem so simple! Often in life, ideas are simple, but the devil's in the details - it's the execution of those ideas that's so complicated.
Is the idea truly good? You don't want to simply jump on the bandwagon unless there is still some space left for you. Better yet, have something that really distinguishes what you offer from what is already available.
Can you raise the funds? It takes money to make money, so do you have any? Enough? Let's be realistic here. If you aren't committing some thirty to fifty percent or more of all start-up costs yourself then you shouldn't be in business. After all, if you can't meet that threshold then you don't believe in your own vision - so why should someone else? A knowledgeable investor will want to see that you have a personal stake in the business' success.
Et cetera.... And that's all just the beginning. There are licensing and insurance issues involved in any endeavor, and you must have a business plan, which includes settling on the kind of corporate structure to be used for your start-up. Tough, isn't it?

But that's okay. You're an entrepreneur. You wouldn't have it any other way. So that when you succeed, you will have certainly earned it.

"I became them" Brilliant new poetry by Shainur Ullah

When I studied them, I became interested
When I became interested, I heard of them
When I heard of them, I saw them
When I saw them, I met them
And when I met them, I became them.

By Shainur Ullah


I like this exploration of how things influence us, and how it means that we become at total of all the experiences we have, whether we like it or not. A great concise shwoing of how that happens. Well Done!

This is brilliant and insightful! I wouldn't change a thing. It is exactly how i feel when I discover a new (well,new to me) branch of history, new genre of books, or a form of art. Thank you for expressing that feeling of oneness to every new study in life

This is how it all works!! Getting to the bottom of things requires getting there first, once there one becomes one with them. I am impressed by this relatively simple equation that you have put in place which is both effective and true at all times.

You have a great gift for capturing much in the smallest of nets. One is then left to marvel at the valuable treasures therein. Excellent write and read!!! applauded

Simple but efficient ! It pictures the stages one could go through once introduced to particular knowledge that one finds interest in , I suppose and when i met them ,i became them could be interpreted as the influence someone had upon you in a positive way .It could also be though them you identified something that you desired in life and wanted so badly to have .Once you saw that it is achieveble "i became them " .It.s as if when we see something we want in others we try to copy them or imitate them so we can have what they have to ! Hope this makes sense !

the poem can be interpreted in a dark foreboding sense or in the Sufi tradition of 'Oneness'. 

This is an interesting introspection into the social structure and process behind the scenes of life. Very true and to the point. Nicely done.

Cancer Girl

Cancer girl is about a girl with blood cancer and when she falls in love, her cancer gets cured and when they break up her cancer comes back.

I published this on wattpad, I am not getting paid for the short story, but I would love readers and people to comment and like and I have faith this short story will affect a lot of people in a good way as cancer is a huge killer and we all know a person with cancer, or died from cancer that we wished were cured.

I'd love for you to spread this short story around and hope to make people feel better, again I get no profit but if i see people commenting and liking and just getting the recognition and seeing they are happy is enough for me.

It is sort of a fairy tale, but a 21st century fairy tale, with cancer being the plague and love is the cure. My aim is to make you happy and I would love it if you spread this short story, cancer girl to any effected familes dealing with cancer or someone who has cancer, i want to put hope and faith in them.

Read it for yourself and let your heart melt:
