Are Your Tires Ready For Those Hot Roads?

We ask a lot of our tires, especially throughout summer.

Here are some tips to get better performance and longer wear from critical safety equipment--your vehicle tires.

Check Tires for Wear Before Autumn Rains

We can go months without really looking at--much less thinking about--our tires.

Such complacency means we’ll fail to notice cracking, underinflation, uneven tread and other symptoms of wear and tear.

Three Ways to Make Tires Last Longer

An underinflated tire poses a safety risk and also wears out faster. Can you rely on tire warning lights in your dashboard? No really. Here's why.

How To Choose the Right Vehicle Battery

Batteries are fickle things. Too much cold, too much heat and they can stop performing. Fear not--there are some simple ways of keeping the power flowing all year long. See how.

Get a grip on winding roads with summer tires

They are known as summer tires or ultra high-performance tires--and they are an effective way to increase your car’s traction in dry weather and handle faster speeds. 

There’s no industry standard for what constitutes a summer tire, according to Rubber Manufacturers Association, but they commonly wick away moisture, grip the road well and are softer than tires formulated for cold weather driving.

Proper rotation improves the life of your tires

Rotating tires regularly and correctly helps even out tread wear and extends tire life, saving money and keeping you safer on the road. But how often should you rotate?
 
“Tire rotation is a critical part of tire maintenance,” said Dan Zielinski, Senior Vice-President of Public Affairs at Rubber Manufacturers Association. “Tires will wear differently at each wheel position.”
