Is it easy to see when my tire pressure is low?

Tire pressure is very difficult to judge by sight alone. Tires can be well under 50% inflated before it's noticeable to the eye. This is why it's so important to check your tire pressure monthly with an accurate tire gauge.

What is TPMS?

TPMS, Tire Pressure Monitoring System, is an electronic system that alerts you with a dashboard indicator light when your car's tire pressure falls to the point of needing inflation.

What should I do if my tire pressure warning light is illuminated on my dashboard?

The light signals that one or more of your tires may have lost pressure.  This may include the spare tire as well.  Our technicians can quickly inspect and diagnose the cause for the low pressure and reset the dashboard indicator light.


Why did my tires wear so quickly?

Premature tire wear may be caused by many factors other than tire rotation. Some examples are as follows: improper inflation, driving conditions, misaligned vehicles, worn vehicle parts, and many other reasons. Without physically inspecting the tires it is difficult to make a determination as to why your tires wore prematurely.

I only need two tires. Do they go on the front or the back?

When replacing only two tires on your vehicle, new tires should usually be placed on the rear of the vehicle.

Do I need winter tires (snow tires)?

For traction, safety, and control a set of 4 winter tires is always a good option.

How many winter tires are recommended?

This is the most frequently asked question regarding winter tires.  The answer is the same for every vehicle type, whether you drive a compact car or SUV. You should replace all 4 tires to winter tires for optimal traction, safety and control.

My vehicle has ABS brakes; does that eliminate the need for winter tires?

No, an ABS braking system prevents "locking up" the brakes by pulsing them as you apply pressure to the pedal.  Remember that the tires on your vehicle supply the traction and help the ABS deliver faster stops.  Tires built with better winter traction will improve overall braking performance on ice, snow, and cold roads.
