. Passenger car tires and automotive batteries will be added to Amazon.com in early 2018.

"DieHard is America's most trusted and preferred  automotive battery brand and the collaboration with Amazon makes it easier for millions to shop the brand," said Tom Park, President of Kenmore, Craftsman and DieHard brands at Sears Holdings. "As we have previously stated, we want to diversify the revenue streams of our iconic brands and launching on Amazon.com will significantly expand the distribution and availability of the DieHard brand in the U.S., building on the success of our recent Kenmore appliances launch on Amazon.com."

DieHard products now available on Amazon.com:

Jump starters and vehicle battery chargers and maintainers - A range of battery-related accessories are now available to help jump start and charge batteries.

  • Jump starters: An assortment of portable power products meet the performance needs of batteries. These include the DieHard compact lithium jump starter + phone charger, which can top off a phone's charge and even jump start a 6-cylinder engine.
  • Vehicle battery chargers and maintainers: A selection of compact shelf chargers and high-powered wheel chargers are available. These include the Wi-Fi enabled DieHard smart charger and maintainer, which allow users to check and charge their battery from a smart device, providing convenience and peace of mind.

DieHard products coming soon to Amazon.com:

Automotive batteries and tires

  • DieHard Advanced Gold Absorbed Glass Mat (AGM) batteries – The non-spillable batteries are designed to provide greater maintenance-free reliability and performance during severe weather such as snow, extreme cold, sleet, rain and heat. The battery also is specifically designed to power today's vehicles, which draw more energy for start/stop ignitions and accessories, such as onboard DVD, navigation systems, and back-up cameras.
  • Passenger tires - Finally, a tire that lives up to its name. DieHard Silver Touring All-Season tires are engineered with rugged quality and innovation, inside and out. Key features include:
    • Nylon Belt Edge Layers, which increase steering response and cornering.
    • Tension Control Technology, which optimizes ground contact and distributes pressure for better braking and less wear.
    • Cross-Angle Sipes, which create biting edges for better traction in wet/wintry conditions.
    • Tire Profile Optimization, which enhances performance by uniformly expanding the center and shoulder region of the contact area.
    • Advanced Carbon Tread Compound, which promotes long, healthy tire life.
    • 70,000-Mile Limited Warranty, which provides lasting customer satisfaction.

DieHard has demonstrated its power as a brand in the past two years with the successful launch of the DieHard Silver Touring A/S passenger car tires. A national survey among automotive tire purchasers in late 2015 ranked DieHard among the top five leading tire brands, even though DieHard tires did not exist at the time. Within six months of launching in August 2016 at Sears Auto Centers, DieHard tires became one of the leading passenger tire brands at Sears.

Other recent innovations from the DieHard brand include:

  • Launch of the industry leading Wi-Fi smart battery maintainer that remotely provides vehicle battery health on a smart phone or tablet, giving users peace of mind.
  • Launch of a compact lithium jump starter + smart phone charger. It is compact, yet powerful enough to jump start up to 20 vehicles on a single charge.
  • The opening of three DieHard Auto Centers in San Antonio, Texas; Troy, Mich. and Roseville, Mich. They offer state-of-the-art technology and services in a contemporary, comfortable setting – that, combined with service from our experienced associates, can help today's drivers make the right choices for their vehicle's needs.

About the DieHard Brand
Introduced in 1967, Sears designed the original DieHard automotive battery to produce 35 percent more usable starting power than other similar batteries. Featuring a revolutionary tough, thin-walled case of translucent polypropylene plastic, which was 50 percent thinner than conventional black rubber-type battery enclosures, the design's extra room meant bigger plates, more acid and extra starting power. During testing, not a single failure was reported in over 26,000 starts in temperatures ranging from sub-zero to more than 100 degrees, hence the name "DieHard."

      In this two-part series, we’re looking at why batteries fail, especially during extreme weather. We know extreme temperatures can be tough on automotive batteries. But there are other factors that can cause batteries to fail any time of year.

      If they boiled out, you almost certainly did damage; how serious depends on luck. Sometimes batteries can partially recover but you definitely reduced their capacity - how much can be best determined by load-testing. Alternatively, you can get an idea by checking sp gravity once recharged but that isn't as conclusive.

    • OEM vs. Aftermarket Parts for Your Car: How to Choose
      When selecting parts for a car repair, it pays to know the differences between original and aftermarket parts. Whenever possible, get estimates for both.

      Choosing between original and aftermarket car parts — and even used parts of either type — is all about squaring your priorities with your budget.

      You’ll have different options depending on the part and the shop. And the best choice will depend on whether you’re trying to keep repairs cheap, restore your car’s appearance after a wreck or soup up your ride.

      Original equipment manufacturer (OEM) parts match those that came with your car, and are of the same quality as its original parts. They’re also the most expensive.

    • Replacement Intervals For Oil And Air Filters In Today’s Vehicles
      The factory-recommended replacement intervals for filters can vary quite a bit depending on the year, make and model of the vehicle, as well as how it is driven. As a rule, older vehicles (those more than 15 to 20 years old) typically have more frequent service intervals than newer vehicles. Why? Because late-model vehicles require less maintenance, thanks to improvements in motor oils, transmission fluids, engine design and filter media.

      Many long-life air and oil filters use synthetic fiber media or a blend of cellulose and synthetic fibers to extend filter life.

      Changing the oil and filter every 3,000 miles was standard practice decades ago. But it’s no longer necessary because most multi-viscosity oils today are a synthetic blend or a full synthetic that resist viscosity breakdown and oxidation for a much longer period of time. Late-model fuel-injected engines also run much cleaner than their carbureted ancestors, which reduces oil contamination in the crankcase.
