New tires will add safety to your car when you drive, that is if they are of high quality. As the tread wears the performance will decrease. This is why it is important to change the tires once you reach a level where the remaining tread depth is 5/32 inches. Below this depth you will […]
Your car tires will wear over time and that is just normal. The wear can however be more rapid than it should be, which can be concerning, and the reason then should be checked. If you drive very long distances, the wear will happen over shorter time, as it is dependent on the distance covered. […]
All season tires are a good choice for hybrid and electric cars as these tires have the lowest rolling resistance out of any tires. Low rolling resistance is important because it decreases the amount of energy needed for each journey thereby allowing the hybrid or electric car to go further. Rolling resistance is the combination […]
The reason low rolling resistance is important especially if you own a hybrid or electric car or SUV is because low rolling resistance tires are the most fuel efficient for your hybrid or electric SUV.

The all-weather tires also hold the “Three Peak Mountain Snowflake” emblem, like winter tires, signifying their approved use in severe […]
All-season tires are a good choice for hybrid and electric cars as these tires usually have the lowest rolling resistance out of any tires. This is because tires like winter tires and all-weather tires have deeper tread blocks to help with grip and traction on snow and ice. Since all-season tires are not made for winter […]

Accidents can happen due to numerous of circumstances, but often speed, bad grip or insufficient braking distance are somewhat involved. If we lose control over our vehicle it is often caused by hydroplaning due to low quality or bad tires. These […]
All-season tires need to be rotated, just like any other tire option. This is done to even out the wear.
All tires should be rotated and if you use your all-weather tires all year round, then you need to make sure that they are rotated. Rotation should be done when the difference in wear is 5/64 inches between the rear and front tires.
