Winter tires are recommended in the winter because the tires are specifically designed for winter driving conditions-roads with ice, snow and slush under 45 degrees.

We recommend not using winter tires beyond the seasonal time frame. The best option for drivers is to have all-season tires to alternate between seasons.

Tire tread is important because it allows your vehicle to remain in contact with the road which allows a safer, solid foundation while driving.

Yes, we patch flat tires. Once the tire is damaged, it must be unmounted for proper repair and we seal the tire from the inside.

The TPMS system on your vehicle is not always a definitive indicator of your tire pressure. You are best advised to check your tires once a month to make sure your tire pressure is at the recommended level as indicated on your door placard or in your owner’s manual.

The tire industry refers to tires in this condition as “run flat” which refers to a tire that has lost air, whether it is from a slow loss or an immediate loss and then subsequently run on. As it reaches the “runflat” stage, serious internal damage can occur which is caused by the excessive deflection of the casing. If the air loss continues, the inside of the deflected sidewall can actually rub against itself.

If the cord material of your tire has become visible, this is cause for an immediate tire replacement as it is hazardous for driving.
