Driving during these winter months can be pretty brutal, even if you drive a large, 4-wheel drive vehicle. However, one change will make a lot of difference (possibly save you from getting stuck in the snow or causing an accident), and that is the type of tires you use. Here are some tire tips to see you through the year (and help prevent winter tow or repair services).
Take Care of Your Tires
You can prolong the life of your tires by having regular rotations. Tire rotations help them wear evenly, instead of in only one spot. This means they last longer and save you money. A simple way to remember to rotate your tires is to do it every time you get an oil change. However, your owner's manual will tell you specifically when your tires should be rotated.
Use the Right Type of Tires
When it comes to tires, you have many options. When it comes to winter driving, you have even more decisions to make. You can stick with your regular tires, purchase studded snow tires, or use stud-less snow tires. Here's a quick overview to help you know which is best for you:
If you rotate your tires regularly and use a different set during winter, your tires will last longer than if you use the same set year-round and neglect a tire rotation. Studies have shown that one set of tires will last 2-3 years while changing a summer set for a winter one gives you nearly twice the life for each one. So, depending on where you live and what you use your truck for, consider driving with winter tires this season. Contact a company like Dsuban Spring for more information.
Hi guys, the name is Phyllis. I'm here to teach you all there is to know about auto body repair. I grew up watching my dad strip down cars and restore them to new with beautiful coats of paint. Between coats, I loved to see how the sanding process removed imperfections and readied the surface for more paint. I grew to love the hobby enough to try it out for myself. My journey started with bicycle frames. The frames easily hung from the ceiling to make sanding and painting a breeze. Eventually, I took my sander and sprayer to the finish of my old car to restore its beauty. You can learn about the auto body repair and restoration process by visiting my site each week. I'll share information about traditional and modern techniques, tools and parts you can use to improve the finish on any vehicle. Thanks for visiting!
