Now that winter’s icy grip has finally released us, it’s time to get ready for summer. Besides being an excellent time to enjoy the outdoors and relax in the sun, summer is also an important time to pay attention to your tires. You may think that summer or all-season tires last virtually forever, but they don’t. If you have been holding off on buying new tires, there is no better time than now during Xtreme Tire Garage’s annual spring tire sale.

 

When Should You Change out Your Winter Tires for Summer Tires?

Driving with your summer tires in the winter is dangerous and can ruin your tires. Well, the same goes for driving with your winter tires in the summer. Specific types of tires are designed to perform in specific weather and road conditions, which is why getting your tires changed at the right time is crucial to the lifespan of your tires.

As a general rule, you want to change out your winter tires for your summer ones once temperatures consistently stay around 7 degrees Celsius for about a week. While changing tires is something that some people do at home, it really should be left to the professionals at Xtreme Tire Garage. Our team has the knowledge and expertise to make sure your tires are put on correctly and safely.

 

Tire Maintenance Is Essential

There is more to tires than just making sure you have the right ones on at the right time. Proper tire maintenance involves a number of services that should be left to trained professionals. The following services should be done whenever you have your tires changed to help keep you and your vehicle safe on the roads and to help extend the life of your tires. Tire services that should be done routinely include:

 

– Wheel alignment

– Wheel balancing

– Rim examination

– Tire inspection

– Tire rotation

– Tire pressure check

– Tire repair

 

Keeping up on tire care requires more than a visual inspection every so often. The tire services mentioned above are vital to maintaining a safe vehicle. Being safe also means knowing when it’s time to replace your tires with new ones.

 

Don’t Wait Until It’s Too Late to Buy New Tires

Tires play a major role in keeping us safe while travelling. They are our connection between our vehicle and the open road. Because of the important role they play, we need to ensure they are in the best shape possible. This means following the suggested maintenance services mentioned above, as well as doing visual inspections yourself to look for any potential issues. A damaged tire can blow and cause major damage to yourself, your vehicle and others around you.

If you can see that the tread on your tires is worn down (a lot of new tires come with tread wear indicators), don’t hold off on buying new ones. Tires are an integral part of keeping you and your family safe while on the road, and right now is an excellent time to buy new tires during the annual spring tire sale at Xtreme Tire Garage. Until May 30th, 2020 only, get up to $240 off select tires! Book your appointment today.
