What Kind Of Tires Do I Need?

May 17th, 2016

There are so many choices for tires in today’s marketplace, it can become a little confusing or even overwhelming. What kind of tires are right for you? That all Tires in Pembroke Pines FLdepends on what you’re driving and what your driving habits are.

April 28th, 2016

You’re driving along and suddenly you hear a bang, or you feel the vehicle start to drive a little funny, and next thing you know you hear the “flap flap flap” that means a flat tire. Or, you come out to the parking lot after work to find that one rim is resting on the ground after your tire has lost its air.

You want to get the most out of your tire dollars, so do you repair or replace that flat one?

Getting The Most Miles Out Of Your Tires

February 8th, 2016

Your tires are an investment. Even a relatively cheap set of tires can easily run $500 or more, after disposal fees, taxes and installation. Unfortunately, they’re Tires in Hollywood FLalso an investment that is constantly depreciating, so it just makes sense to try to get the most out of your money with a set of tires.

The good news is that even lower-priced tires are designed to last longer than they were a generation ago. At one time, bias-ply tires were only good for about 20,000 miles (a couple of years’ worth of driving!) and early radials were lucky to go 35-40,000 miles before wearing out. Now, with improvements in tire construction and tread formulations, it’s not at all unusual to get 60,000 miles out of a set of tires.

That’s only with the correct care and driving habits, however. These are all goo ...[more]
