There are an incredible number of tires out there. It's overwhelming even for us shop owners. Not only are there hundreds of brands but then within each brand there are tiers and models and sizes. It's crazy!
This creates a real problem for buyers because tire experts, like us, have a hard time tracking the performance and durability of each brand because there are so many.
To get around this problem and to make sure our recommendations are accurate and backed with data, we only sell a few brands that we know well. We know all the models for each brand, all the variations, and we know which brands that you could experience problems with.
When we are talking tires, it usually boils down to 2 main concerns. Traction and longevity. Better traction costs more and better longevity costs more. I've seen cheap tires go bald in a matter of months. I've seen them get hard and crispy. I've seen them bulge in the sidewalls and crack in the tread.
For that reason, we take a consultative approach to tires. If you commute long distances in the summer and winter, we can get you in a tire that will have great traction and last a long time. If you drive to church on Sunday and the grocery store on Tuesday, we have a tire that will fit that pattern as well. It won't last as long as the commuter tire but it will do what you need it to do.
The idea is to match your driving habits to the perfect tire. That makes happy customers and a happy shop!
Oh, and you get FREE rotations and flat repair when you by a set of 4 from us. Just a little added bonus!
