The Importance of Good Tires

All Edmonton citizens need to understand the importance of good tires.

Old tires can cause all sorts of problems. Worse case scenario is that one of them could blow out while you were driving, but there are other safety factors you should be concerned about.

Old tires can prevent you from stopping quickly, cause you to spin out when you turn sharply, and provide poor traction in the rain and snow.

You need to have a basic understanding of your tires. Edmonton citizens, your safety depends on it.

Performance Categories

Within the broad performance categories there are many specific options available. The kind of car you have will largely determine the model of tire you need.

  • All-Season Passenger.
  • These tires are basically multi-purpose. They are used for passenger cars such as sedans and station wagons.

  • Summer Passenger.
  • People who live in extremely hot conditions, where the pavement could cook an egg in the summer, need specialized tires to deal with the heat.

  • Snow Tires.
  • If you live in Edmonton you know the importance of snow tires. Be careful to only use them when the weather is poor or they will be damaged by the dry pavement.

  • Performance Tires.
  • These are designed for fast cars. They have a relatively short life due to the soft rubber used to make them fast.

  • Light Truck/SUV.
  • Bigger cars need bigger tires. Trucks and SUVs have different needs than a sedan, so their tires are made specifically for them.

  • Trailer Tires.
  • Most trailers have specialized tires to meet the needs of the equipment carried in them.

Taking Care of your Tires

Edmonton auto service centers will gladly examine the condition of your tires. However, proper home maintenance will save you lots of time and money.

Here's what you can do:

  • Check Tire Pressure.
  • You can purchase a tire pressure gauge for about $1 at any auto store. If you don't know how to use it, ask someone who knows. You should check the pressure in your tires at least once a month.

  • Inspect your Tires.
  • Edmonton roads are typically in good shape but if you drive over anything sharp you could still puncture a tire. Routinely check for punctures and uneven wear. If you ever see exposed metal, immediately call a professional.

  • Drive Safely.
  • Practice good driving habits and your tires will typically last longer.

Taking care of your tires will help you and your family stay safe on the road. Get some good tires in Edmonton and take care of them.
