Gift ideas for gearheads

November 18, 2011 12:00 AM

The holidays are right around the corner, and those with a car nut in their life might be thinking about buying them some auto-related gifts. AutoMD recently released their picks for the best gifts this holiday for those who truly love their car.

Dealing with wheels and tires is one of the most critical parts of auto maintenance, and it's something that most car owners can do themselves - if they have the right tools. Two of the options on the list deal with these important parts - tire gauges and air compressors. Both of these products will improve the life of the tires, as drivers will know exactly when to increase tire pressure by checking them with the gauge. The air compressor makes it easy to fill them without leaving the garage.

If your gift recipient likes to make their own car repairs, then consider a vehicle-specific guide. These differ from owner's manuals in that they provide step-by-step instructions on just about every repair a vehicle will need. Be sure you know the make, model and year of the vehicle in question so you can get the guide that matches to that particular car.

Finally, everyone likes the interior of their car to look impressive. Custom floor mats are a great way to make the owner feel like they're riding in an ultra high-class vehicle. Many come with a name, sports team logo or other design on them for true personalization.
