Calling all Parks and Recreation Fans: Today is a sacred holiday, Treat Yo Self Day, and what better way to celebrate this Fall than with a brand new set of tires from AA Muffler and Brakes? In the long run, the cost for a new set of tires is small compared to the benefits they provide. Still not convinced?
Here are five reasons to “treat yo self” to new tires:
Safety is Key!
We can not stress this point enough. Tires are one of the most important parts of your vehicle because they are the only part of your car that touches the road. As a result, keeping them in good condition and replacing them when necessary are key to staying safe this fall and winter season. A new set of tires provides a cushion of safety for the next 65,000 - 100,000 miles*. They also greatly improve your car’s ability to stop, accelerate, and turn.
*Tread-wear rating depending
The quality of your tires determines how fast you can take a turn, the distance you need to bring your car to a stop, how much power your car can put to the ground, and whether or not you can brake fast enough to safely control that power. AA Muffler and Brakes carries the highest quality tires, designed with performance in mind. When selecting new tires, make sure they are in the performance category (i.e., summer, all-year, racing) that you intend on using them for.
Did you know that the condition of your vehicle’s tires drastically affects your gas mileage? If your tires are worn down or have an uneven tread pattern, your gas mileage suffers. This is due to your car having to work much harder to gain traction and move the weight of your car. Make sure your tires are properly mounted, balanced, and inflated to achieve the best results. It is also good practice to have your front end aligned, by a professional, each time you replace your tires to ensure that your new tires don’t wear out prematurely.
How your tires perform under different road and weather conditions such as snow, rain, dirt, or mud is tied to their compound and tread. Softer tires with deeper tread grooves are good for snow and mud but will negatively affect your vehicle’s performance and gas mileage during the summer months. You should select tires that are designed to meet all of your driving specifications. Here in Michigan, we get all four seasons. So it might benefit you to have two sets of tires that you can change out during the seasons to ensure your safety and vehicle efficiency no matter the weather.
An Overall Better Driving Experience
Last, but certainly not least, is how you feel while driving with a new set of tires on your car. New tires that have deeper treads are perfect for long road trips because they give you a smoother ride. Newer tires are also much more quiet than worn out tires. If you have a long commute to work or take frequent road trips, than you know how important it is to have a smooth, quiet ride. New tires help provide that comfort.
