Tires are among your vehicle's most important components. In our previous post, we discussed five signs your car needs new tires, including:

  1. The Tire Tread is Below Lincoln's Head
  2. Tire Threads are Visible
  3. Your Vehicle Vibrates at Certain Speeds
  4. Your Tires are Showing Cracks and Dry Rot
  5. You're Experiencing Poor Vehicle Handling

Replacing tires is one of the vehicle-repair tasks that drivers can feel right away. Though they are expensive, your new tires will significantly improve your driving experience. In this article, we will discuss five benefits of new tires:

1) New Tires Improve Your Car’s Handling on Mountain Roads

Western North Carolina features a variety of mountain roads and driving conditions. When the tread on your tires wears down, your vehicle’s handling on curvy roads will begin to deteriorate. New tires make a significant difference in how your car feels as you climb and descend the twisty roads for which Asheville is famous.

2) New Tires Give Your Car Greater Stopping Power

When you press the brake pedal, you expect your vehicle to stop; however, when your tire tread deteriorates, so does your braking distance. New tires immediately improve your ability to stop quickly and safely.

3) New Tires Provide More Grip During Rain

You know the saying, “If you do not like the weather in Asheville, wait fifteen minutes.” Summer storms may seem to pop up out of nowhere, bringing heavy rainfall and high winds. Old tires are more likely to break traction or cause your car to hydroplane during the torrential summer rains. New tires improve your stopping power during rainfall, as well as your handling. Of course, it is always important to reduce speed and drive safely during summer storms, regardless of the condition of your tires.

4) New Tires Provide the Opportunity for Professional Vehicle Inspection

While your local mechanic is replacing your tires, he or she will have the opportunity to inspect for and correct other potential issues, including:

  • Wheel-alignment and vibrations
  • Tire balance
  • Worn brake pads and rotors
  • Leaking oil or coolant
  • Other mechanical issues

With new, balanced tires, corrected wheel alignment, and new brakes, your car will have new life.

5) New Tires Provide Improved Overall Safety

Whether you are driving in rain, snow, or sunshine, new tires improve every aspect of your vehicle’s performance on the road. Do not wait until your tires are unsafe and in damage of blowing out, visit us for new tires that will make your car feel like new.
