Mike's Performance Garage: Buying A New Set Of All-Season Tires
Mike's Performance Garage
When water builds up between your tires and the roads in Fort Pierce your car is at risk of hydroplaning. A new set of all-season tires are designed to deliver good comfort and handling on the highway, as well as reliable traction in the rain. In the past, most all-season tires featured symmetrical tread patterns, however, there are many new all-season tires that are now featuring an asymmetrical tread pattern. An asymmetrical pattern may offer higher speed and load ratings for your car or truck on wet roads.
Each all-season tire is constructed with a series of internal steel belts, polyester cord and rubber compounds that are designed for traction and performance in wet or dry conditions. All-season tires are not the best option for tough winter conditions such as snow and ice. However, a new set of all-season tires offers drivers in Fort Pierce confident performance during nice and moderate weather conditions.
All-season tires offer deep grooves and blades to channel water away from the tire. Grooves widen to help displace water on the road as your tire wears. As tire tread blades become more shallow with wear they will open up to become wider grooves. A dryer tire provides more grip and minimizes the possibility of hydroplaning in the rain.
All-season tires offer a smooth, quiet ride by adding an extra layer of super-shock absorbent layer of rubber between the tread layer and steel belts. The extra rubber cushion insulates against road vibration and impacts.
Affording a new set of all-season tires has never been easier at Mike's Performance Garage. Ask us about offsetting the cost of a set of tires with manufacturer rebates. Most name-brand tire manufacturers offer rebates on all-season or touring tires. This helps keep the cost of a new set of tires low. Give us a call today at 772-460-8700 and ask us about the cost of a set of tires with a manufacturer rebate. One of our tire specialists will be happy to help.
Top name brand tires offer more than just rebates. Brands such as Bridgestone, Goodyear and Michelin feature all-season tires with the highest UTQG (Uniform Tire Quality Grading) rating. The rating system was developed by the US Department of Transportation, which helps consumers compare and rate tires on tread wear, traction, and temperature. The government mandates that tires have at least a 100 UTQG wear rating. Most sets of new all-season tires have a UTQG rating of 400, meaning that they will last four times longer than the government mandate.
However, please don't link tread wear grades with your projected tire mileage. Each new all-season tire also comes with a traction and temperature rating that represents the level of grip a tire has under normal road conditions. New tires have a grade of "A" for superior, "B" for good and "C" for average. Most name-brand all-season tires have a grade of "A".

Our daughter was in Florida on vacation. Her car broke down and she had it towed to another shop that tried to charge her a small fortune because she was a young girl from out of town that didn't know any better. We had the car towed to Mike's instead. They worked their tails off to fix her car and get our girl back on the road for considerably less money. They did a great job, worked fast and for a great price. They definitely helped a worried mom from Michigan. I would ABSOLUTELY recommend Mike's to EVERYONE!! Thank you guys so very much for all you did!!!!
