So your closet has a pair of flip-flops for the summer, a pair of heavy boots for the winter, and a comfortable pair of sneakers for most of the rest of the year. If you live in a climate that doesn’t have harsh winters, you might just be able to wear those sneakers year-round...and all-season tires are the equivalent of your comfortable sneakers.
So what makes all-season tires so special?
Winter tires are excellent for severe conditions like heavy snow and even ice. They feature specially-designed tread patterns and “sipes”, hundreds of tiny slits which offer biting edges for traction in snow. This means shorter stopping distances, better handling and better control in winter weather. Winter tires are not d

If you’ve ever been on a wet highway and suddenly felt somewhat disconnected from the road, chances are your vehicle was beginning to hydroplane. You’ve probably heard the term before, but what exactly does it mean?
Your tires’ treads are designed to clear water away from the contact patch, the section of the tire that actually stays in contact with the road at any given time. The grooves that run around the tire’s circumference, the sipes cut into the tread and other tread elements are designed to evacuate the wedge of water that builds up at the leading edge of the contact patch, channeling it safely behind the tire as you move down the road. Some tires can do this more effectively than others, but…no worn tires can evacuate water very well.
In the moment that a car hydroplanes, ...[more]

Tire rotation is an easy maintenance item that has long term benefits for any vehicle. When properly maintained, tire rotations can improve fuel economy, extend tire life and provide drivers better handling through improved stability. Frequently servicing vehicles with tire rotations is imperative to sustaining tire tread by ensuring all tires are used evenly without excessive wear to one section or another.
Normal tread wear is unavoidable due to uneven vehicle weight dispersal, vehicle performance, etc. Without tire rotations, tires continue to wear on the same areas over and over, causing irreversible damage to tire tread which drastically decreases tire life. Engine weight accounts for a major portion of vehicle weight, causing front tires to wear significantly faster than back tires. Front tires ...[more]
