Winter Wheel/Tire Program
WHEN SHOULD WINTER TIRES BE INSTALLED?
Many people wait for the first snowfall to think about winter tires. It is best to purchase and install your winter tires once temperatures consistently dip below 45 degrees. At this temperature, all-season tires get stiff and start to lose traction. This results in less reliable braking, cornering, and acceleration. If you get in early for your winter tires, you can beat the last minute rush and be prepared before the snow starts to fall.
WINTER TIRE STORAGE
Storing your winter tires is another very important, yet often overlooked aspect of winter tire care. As with all-season and summer tires, proper storage is very important. The wrong environment can cause serious damage to your tires.
To help your tires see more than one winter, we make sure to follow these storage steps:
Store tires without a load
Tires are stored somewhere dark, with little or no direct sunlight
Tires are be brushed clean thoroughly before they are stored. If they are mounted on wheels, the wheels should be cleaned
