James: Hi, I’m James with S&S Tire and Brannon Crossing, and today I want to talk about do you really need to replace all four tires? Yes, I work at a tire store, but you may or may not need to replace all four tires, and if you do you may not think you need to. There are actually reasons that you should look into a full set of tires.
One, if you haven’t properly rotated your tires enough, you can get uneven wear between the front tires to the rear tires or vice versa. Two, if you’re not keeping your car on proper alignment they may be wearing one side compared to the other, and that will indicate a new set of tires.
Three, the age of your tires. Yes your tires may have a lot of tread, but they may be old, and like all rubber products, they do get hard and brittle. And in that case you’ll lose traction. Especially with the inclement weather coming up through this winter and the fall with the rains, you will start to see a difference in traction not only in take off from a stop sign or a light, but also when braking. Tires are vital important when you’re braking to actually help you to stop because the rubber actually is grabbing the road to help slow you down.
Now, do you always have to replace four? Not necessarily. You may have three really good tires and you’ll just have a problem with one, maybe you can get away with one or maybe just a pair, but if you do decide to go four, S&S tire has the Four 4 Four where you get four free oil changes with a four tire purchase. And always we have a free alignment.
I’m James with S&S Tire and that’s your tip of the day from under the hood.
Speaker 2: Now at S&S Tire, buy four continental or general tires and get four free oil changes.
