Tires

Winter has arrived - are your tires ready? Here’s what you need to know, from Holmes Auto Repair in Fort Walton Beach, FL.

You may not notice your tires need attention until they’re really put to the test. When conditions take a turn for the worst, it’s important to know where your tires stand. While it makes a difference all year, before winter strikes is the best time to take a good hard look at the tires on your car, truck, or SUV, for several reasons.

For starters, bald tires don’t perform well in snow, ice, and rain. It’s hard enough to keep traction in these conditions - add a lack of tread to the mix, and you might find yourself at a standstill in even the most benign winter conditions. Furthermore, cold weather hardens up your tires, which provides you even less traction.

Driving with low tire pressure is another common mistake. As temperatures drop, so will the air pressure in your tires, leading to a lack of stability, decreased fuel mileage, and faster tread wear. Be sure to test the pressure in your tires after the cold sets in.

Finally, blowouts are another concern. In any other season, a blown tire is no fun. During extreme temperatures and inclement weather, a blowout is downright dangerous. The last thing you need is to get stranded in the cold.

If you need tires, we’ve got you covered. No matter your maintenance or repair needs, Holmes Auto Repair has the answers. For the best auto service shop in Fort Walton Beach, FL, call or stop by today.
