Tires are the single most important safety feature on your car. They are the only thing that connects the car to the road, and life-saving technologies like antilock brakes and electronic stability control cannot do their job if the tires don't have a good grip on the pavement.
As the adage goes, nothing lasts forever. Car owners still need to replace their tires a few times or more throughout the life of a typical vehicle. Despite advances in longer-lasting tires, actual tread life will vary by car type, tire type (such as all season or high performance), driving aggressiveness, and even road and weather conditions. Proper maintenance and responsible driving can maximize the mileage in a set of tires.
Tread life varies largely on what tires you put on the vehicle, the type of vehicle in general, your particular driving habits and the weather conditions around where you live. The best way to maximize the life of your tires is to drive responsibly and take your vehicle in to have the tires inspected. That's where our team at Fred’s Wrigleyville Garage and auto repair can step in and help. We will go through the tires to determine how low the tread is and whether you need to have them replaced or not.
We Offer Most Major Brands of Tires
Once a need for new tires is determined, it is necessary to identify the best tires for your vehicle and driving demands. Look for tires that do well in tests for braking, handling, and resistance to hydroplaning. Winter traction should also be considered, if applicable. Let tread wear, ride comfort, noise, and rolling resistance be tiebreakers. Trust the tire experts at Fred’s Wrigleyville Garage and auto repair to help you choose the right tires for your vehicle.
Our team has a wide variety of different tires out there from which you can choose. We can go over some of the best options for your particular vehicle and driving habits to prevent you from having to spend more on tires than what you should.
