Auto Surgeon: Buying A New Set Of All-Season Tires

When water builds up between your tires and the roads in Lansing 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 Lansing 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 Auto Surgeon. 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 517-374-8940 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".

Not sure which set of tires is best for your car? Stop by our location at 1820 E Kalamazoo St or call us at 517-374-8940 and let one of our tire experts help you decide which tire is best for your car.

    Just a word of thanks for the top notch done to Wema's Carolla and for the thoughtful communication with our Tanzanian exchange student. Not only did you fix her car, but also handled arranging towing, all in a narrow window of time. Wema is delighted to have her car back, running better than ever. Couldn't be more happy with your service!

    My son limped his vehicle into Auto Surgeon's parking lot . The vehicle is on its last leg and we just needed to get it up and running for a few more weeks til my son graduates. The proper repairs were out of the budget so Bill came up with a solution that made sense for this vehicle, Bill didn't have to adapt for us but he did, and the price was more than fair. Don't hesitate to call Auto Surgeon for any repair.

    I have passed this place on the bus every day for 6 years and have always gotten a smile out of their sign out front having such nice little positive messages. So when I finally got a car and needed my brakes done, they were my first choice. Not only were they incredibly friendly and professional, they identified what I thought was a minor inconvenience and explained how it could be a problem down the road (pun very much intended) while fixing it for me. I will absolutely be coming back for anything I need done in the future!

  • Bill earns a strong recommendation for great customer service and for the excellent repair he did on my car. For all future car needs, Bill will be my first call.

    My daughter brought her GMC in for a noise in the suspension and a air bag issue- Bill and his staff did a great job in diagnosing and repairing the vehicle with keeping us updated on the process. Thank You

    My husband has taken his car to Auto Surgeon for many years and has nothing but praise for their expertise and customer service. We both trust that whatever the problem, we're in good hands with Bill and his team. Today it was my car's turn to need repairs. Within 90 minutes of dropping it off, they contacted me with a diagnosis and an estimate. By early afternoon, my car was ready. First-rate experience, start to finish. No one wants car problems, but if you have them, this is the place to go.
