Jake Schaale

I guess you could say I’m a casual car enthusiast. I grew up in Detroit, go to the North American International Auto Show every year, and love keeping up with all the latest automotive innovations. But don’t try to talk to me about things like engine displacements or suspension configurations, ‘cause I just recently realized that “chassy” isn’t slang for chassis but just how the word is pronounced.
                                                                                                                                        Tires never used to be on my radar, but RightTurn has helped me learn just how much of a difference tires make. I’ve even witnessed a minivan outrace a BMW just because it had the right tires. Hopefully my musings here will help you discover a bit about what tires can do for you. At the very least, I’ll settle for making you crack a smile every now and then.
