Hill's Auto Repair: Buying A New Set Of All-Season Tires

When water builds up between your tires and the roads in Bushwood 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 Bushwood 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 Hill's Auto Repair. 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 301-769-2400 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 22829 Colton Point Rd or call us at 301-769-2400 and let one of our tire experts help you decide which tire is best for your car.

    In these unpredictable times, I was very pleased to see a masked man appear on my doorstep. The new pick up and deliver service is wonderful. My car was whisked back to their shop, thoroughly taken care of and returned swiftly to my driveway. Hill's Auto crew is professional, courteous, and invariably honest. I have been a customer for more than twenty years. What a treasure!

    Hills staff are the best! I was on the road a day car started hesitating. I went by on the way they checked to see if there was a problem. Nothing showed up and on my way it started doing it again. I turned around and they took it for a test ride and an ignition coil failing. Good job

    I highly recommend Hill?s Auto. They did outstanding work on repairing my 1972 Buick which had not been driven for over 2 1/2 years. They compiled a full list of ?need to, should do and can wait? issues. They discussed each item with a recommendation for my final decision. They even hunted down replacement parts for my specific car like a replacement for a broken running light lens. Hill?s did excellent work and I thought their pricing was very fair.
