Fall is just around the corner, it's time to sipe your tires!

Keeping your vehicle from spinning out and staying on the road in icy, snowy, and wet conditions can oftentimes be difficult in certain areas of the country.  Even tires that are brand new may have difficulties in these types of conditions.  Maybe what your tires need is a good “siping” to provide better traction when the roadways are treacherous.  The process of siping is by no means new to the tire industry.  In fact, the technology was invented in the early 1920’s by a gentleman who cut grooves in the treads of his work boots in order to stop slipping on a wet warehouse floor.

Keeping your cool on the road

The dangers of worn tires

As much as people rely on their vehicles in order to maintain both livelihood and quality of life, it can be surprising how minimal the routine service concerns really are.  While keeping up with basic oil changes and inspections does benefit safety and the lifetime of the car, other factors should also be regularly considered as an investment in wellbeing, for the vehicle and the passengers.
