Many years and expense go into the engineering of tires by the manufacturers. We understand that quality tires are not only safe but are an investment into your safety and comfort while driving in all weather conditions. We've listed the following points to assist in preserving your tires' tread life, dollar value, and most of all, you and your family's safety.
- Worn tires not only affect traction and handling but also affect braking. Remember to always have ample tread evenly distributed across your tire.
- Uneven tread wear is usually caused by mechanical issues such as alignment or deterioration of wearable items such as tie rods, ball joints, etc. Be sure to repair any issues that may be found so you may preserve the life of your tires.
- Remember to keep all tires inflated to the vehicle's manufacturer's recommendation. Inflation pressures can be be found on most cars in the driver's side door jam area.
- Snow tires should be put on when average temperature is 45 degrees and below and removed once average temperature is above 45.
- Studded snow tires should be put on and off according to your state's laws governing such operations. New Jersey law permits studded tires from November 15 to April 1.
