Dad a car nut? Rev him up this Father's Day with these unique gifts

Published Jun 5th 2007, 1:16pm by Jody DeVere in Featured Articles

Father's Day is coming up and gift givers everywhere are thinking about what to get Dad. We're pretty sure he doesn't need another tie, so our colleagues at have compiled a range of ideas that those Dads passionate about cars might actually find useful.

Accutire_gauge Hate watching Dad cringe every time he fills up the tank? The Accutire Air10 Gauge with built-in LED flashlight will help him save money by helping keep tire pressures set for the best fuel mileage. Its Set Point programmable feature allows for recording the factory recommended tire pressure for both front and rear tires, and it also includes an LED flashlight for taking readings in the dark.

Conti_comfort_kit_2 Continental Tire's ContiComfortKit can help seal typical tire punctures, making it possible for Dad to complete the drive home, to work, an important appointment or a tire repair facility. The ContiComfort Kit automatic tire repair tool means Dad will never have to deal with ruining his best suit or missing an important event changing a tire.

Emergency_kit Tire Rack's Emergency Repair Tool Kit gives Dad the peace of mind he'll be safely prepared for almost any breakdown situation so that should a roadside emergency occur, Dad will have everything he'll need to get back on the road.

Tire_totes For the Dad who keeps an extra set of tires for Winter driving or weekend racing, has the Seasonal Tire Tote, which protects his investment while they're in storage. A heavy-duty shell with an easy-to-carry handle slips over the tire to protect clothing and a vehicle's interior from tire and brake residue. In their totes, tires stay neatly covered and stacked until the next season rolls around again.
