  • Did you find your vehicle slipping around out on the roads during our recent snow fall and storms? While we have definitely been experiencing a relatively mild winter with above average temperatures and below average snowfalls throughout Michigan and Ohio, the winter season has finally arrived. You may be driving on a set of worn tires with low tread and are considering putting off your tire purchase until the Spring, our advice in a word is “Don’t!” It is definitely not too late to improve your winter driving experience and invest in a set of winter tires.

    Our customers are constantly surprised at the tremendous difference that can be made just by investing in a set of winter tires. There are many benefits to buying a set of winter tires for your vehicle including:

     • Increased mobility and traction in winter conditions including snow and ice.

    • Improved gas mileage as winter tires can actually help you get more miles per gallon.

     • Decreased wear on your all-season tires that can spin during winter driving conditions and increase their wear.

     • Another potential savings is the cost of a tow truck should you need to be pulled out. While winter tires aren’t perfect they can definitely reduce your risk of getting stuck this winter.
