X-Pert Automotive: Buying A New Set Of All-Season Tires

When water builds up between your tires and the roads in Tucson 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 Tucson 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 X-Pert Automotive. 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 520-818-1780 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".

    Warning light came on. Filled out appointment form at 9pm. 8:10am next morning received a call. Brought car in that day. They said they would get to it asap based on workload. Received a call next day stating what the problem was, repair options and pricing. Gave the go ahead. Another call about parts availabilities and when this was resolved. Next call was that vehicle was ready. Communications was the key to my high rating for them.

    Have gone to X-pert Automotive for 6 years. All technicians are highly trained on all makes of cars, owner is hands-on and honest. Shelley and Frankie are outstanding employees, friendly and efficient. All service is very thorough, but pricing is highly reasonable. Cannot say enough good things about their service and expertise. First time I have ever completely trusted this type of service.

    Had to drop off my car before they opened...that was easy, as they have the lock box, envelopes, pen, all ready in place. Felt very comfortable leaving the car in their lot that morning. Contacted by the shop to let me know the status of the repair, and estimated time to be completed. Quality of the work was exceptional. Test driven three times to make sure everything was completed...they noticed one sound that was not there before, and repaired it at no cost...tightening of something... but no charge to take care of that issue. Overall, I am very impressed and satisfied that I have found a mechanic so close to SaddleBrooke Ranch, that I can rely on for years to come. You won't be disappointed.

    I have been taking my car here for years and have always been pleased. The customer service is great and everyone is always very friendly. I appreciate that they take the time to explain the things I don't understand. They are very informative and not pushy, which is greatly appreciated.
