How Good Quality High Performance All Season Tires Can Save Your Life

Apr 6, 2008
High performance all season tires do much more than just make your vehicle look better and perform better. They also are an incredible safety item and if they are kept in proper shape and inflated properly they can really save your life. As someone who has been around the automotive business for a lot of my life I have to say that a quality set of all season radial tires are essential for any automobile owner. Just as a house must have a good foundation, your car is no different. The car and your very life as well are dependent upon your tires and wheels. This is the reason that you keep your tires in good shape.

Some people think that maintaining all season tires is just the act of replacing them when the treads begin to show but there is a lot more to it than that. For starters you need to be sure that you always keep your tires inflated properly and rotate the tires as the manufacturer suggests so that the tread wear remains even and you don't have tires that wear out before their time. The other thing is that you need to avoid running your vehicle on rough unfinished or rocky roads and avoid running into curbs. Another thing that causes tires to wear out quickly is taking curves or corners sharply at a high rate of speed. This is one of the reasons that race car drivers have to change tires so frequently. Stopping hard will also place undo stress on your tires so you should avoid jackrabbit starts and quick stops.

If you own your vehicle any time at all you will have to change your tires and for most people this is a job that cannot be done on your own. Even if you are one of those types that think that think you can do it all yourself this is one area if expertise that is best left to the professionals. Even before I got involved in the automotive industry I was into working on my car and doing as much as I could by myself. My brother and I used to work on our cars in the backyard on the weekends. The big thing with installing tires is that they need to be properly aligned and balanced which cannot be done without specialized equipment that is found at a tire dealer. You can drive a car without balancing the tires but it is not really safe to do so and it will drastically reduce the life of your tires. The best bet is to swallow your pride and realize that there are some things that you cannot do on your own and let the tire shop handle it for you.
