Save Money Buy Used Snow Tires – Columbia CT

Save Money with Used Snow Tires

You can save a boatload of money when you buy used snow tires. In southern New England, it is easy to just neglect to prepare your car for driving in snow. We never know just how precarious winter driving is going to be. We had a long string of a mild winters punctuated by 7 feet of snowfall  one recent January. A brand new set of snow tires  is really expensive, and we are all guilty of putting things like this off.  When you need snow tires this season, try shopping at a used tire dealer first. For quality new and used tires and car repair services, come to Tire and Brake Clinic. Located in Columbia, we are your source for quality tires for cars and trucks. At Tire and Brake Clinic, we know tires. In eastern Connecticut where it snows a fair amount throughout the winter months, you should get four good snow tires. Nothing will make a bigger difference than the traction you will need in slippery driving conditions. If you find changing your tires out every year a pain, why not get yourself four steel rims and mount the snows permanently on those rims.

Prevent Winter Tire Woes

There are a number of things a car owner must do to prevent the most common cause of tire blowouts. Underinflated tires may overheat at highway speeds, impair precision handling when turning, or they may split apart while you are driving. If you experience a blowout while on the road, avoid putting your foot on the brake. The drag from the blown tire will slow you down without applying the brakes. Keep the steering wheel pointed straight until the car has almost stopped, then ease the car gently toward the shoulder.

  1. Check the tire pressure regularly. Your vehicle owner’s manual, the label inside the driver’s door, or possibly a label inside the gas cap, may list your tire manufacturer’s recommended psi for each vehicle. Manufacturer’s recommended psi for tires may be different for the front tires than the rear tires of a vehicle.
  2. Rotate your tires every 6,000 to 8,000 miles. This promotes uniform wear, which means consistent performance and longer tire life.
  3. Examine your treads. To make sure your tires have a tread depth of at least 4/32 inch, stick a quarter, Washington’s head facing down, into one of the tire-tread grooves. If any part of Washington’s head is obscured, you have at least that amount of tread.
  4. Align your wheels. Improperly aligned wheels can create rapid and uneven wear and steering and tracking problems.
