The most obvious reason for a change to winter tires is safety. The slick conditions of a snowy winter are incredibly dangerous if you’re using tires that aren’t up for the challenge. Make sure that you set yourself up for success with some new winter tires.

Tires are your vehicle’s point of contact with the ground, so everything that happens on the road goes through them. Rough roads inflict a lot of punishments on tires, especially all-season or summer tires. Come winter time, it is important to get a set that can cope with the additional wear that the rough roads and conditions are going to produce.

With the rough conditions of the winter in full swing, it is more important than ever to make sure your wheels are aligned properly. When there’s a serious problem you can tell by the vehicle pulling to the left or right, or vibrations in the steering column. If the problem isn’t yet serious it can be harder to tell, so be sure to bring your vehicle into our professionals so we can take a look an fix any potential issues.

It is also important to realize that all tires will wear down over time. The easiest way to get some extra use out of them is to rotate your tires. This helps spread wear out evenly on your set of tires, prolonging its lifespan.
