Every Automobile Owner Needs to Learn about Tires

When I bought my first car, I was very intimidated by it. However, my dad loved cars, so he had all of the regular maintenance done for me. Once I moved far from home when I landed my first job, I learned just how much may dad did to maintain my car. Little did I know that my tires had gone almost completely bald. I learned my lesson one day when it was raining and I slammed on the brakes -- my car slid and almost hit the one in front of me! This motivated me to take my car in for maintenance and the staff told me my tires were likely the problem. I have since dedicated myself to learning more about cars to keep me safe on the road. I want to share what I am learning on a blog to help others out there stay safe, too!

Need An LED Light Bar? Here Are The Top 3 Beam Patterns

If you want to add an LED light bar to ATV or other off-road vehicle, there are three different beam patterns that you have to choose from for your lighting needs.

#1 Spot Light

The first type of beam pattern is one that you should be familiar with, the spot light beam pattern. This type of light bar will contain a couple of different lights on top that you can manual adjust so that they are focused in a specific direction. The great thing about spot light style LED light bars is that they provide you with more focused light that you are set in the specific direction that you need.

For example, if you are going to be on the road, you may want to focus the LED spot lights on the road so you can see better. Or, if you are parked and are setting up camp for the night, you may want to set up the lights so that they are directed at your camp area.

With a spot light beam, you'll get a very focused and intense beam of light in a specific area.

#2 Flood Beam

The second type of light beam pattern that you can install on your LED light bar are flood beams. Flood beams are great because they provide you with extra light over a larger area. You end up with a small area where the light is stronger and more focused, kind of like with a spot light beam, but also with a wide area where the light spreads out and provides you with additional coverage. The best thing about flood beams are that they provide you with a large amount of light with just one or two lights on your LED light beam bar.

#3 Mixed Beam

The third type of LED light bar that you can put on your off-road vehicle is a mixed beam bar. A mixed beam bar has a mixture of both flood and spot lights. This type of light bar with give you both really focused lights as well as large light coverage area. It should be able to provide you with all the light that you need to provide you with both focused and large light coverage. If you can't choose between the two light options above, this is a great course of action to take to get the light you need without having to compromise between spot and flood lights on your off-road vehicle. 

Consider each of these beam patterns when looking for an off road LED light bar.
