Eagle Auto is serious about TIRES
We take the subject of TIRES very seriously here at Eagle Auto in Littleton, CO. You have a lot riding on making the right choices about your auto's tires. Tires are the only part of your car that touches the ground and the security and safety of your precious cargo depends on them. Our tire experts want to help you make the best decisions on the selection and care of them. By investing wisely, your tires should give you safe, worry-free driving for many miles.
Tips on How to Tell When You Need Tires
The old tried and true "Penny Method" is one of the easiest ways to check on the condition of the depth of your tire tread. Insert an Abe Lincoln penny headfirst into the groove of the tread. If ol' Abe's head is hidden within the tread your tire likely has good tread, but if any part of Abe's head shows it is probably time to get your tires checked by the professionals at Eagle Auto!
Be sure to check the tread of your tires often; specifically both sides and the center of each tire. Make it a habit to walk around your car regularly, and watch for low or flat tires. Tire pressure should be checked frequently. Look for problems with treads and extra wear on the sidewalls. If you see any tears, bumps, blisters, or cuts on the sidewalls, or if you see uneven wear on the tread of a tire you can be sure the tire needs to be replaced.
Any of these signs of damage can lead to a flat tire, be sure to bring it in and have it balanced as this could be a sign of improper inflation or wheel alignment. If you are unsure about the condition of your tires, our friendly and courteous staff at Eagle Auto here in Littleton, CO. is ready and willing to check them for you
A Little About Tires
Basically, there are three categories of tires:
The most basic, and most affordable of the three are all-season tires. These tires are designed to work well in dry, wet, snowy or slushy driving conditions.
High-Performance tires have stiff sidewalls and high traction, which emphasizes the feel of a having a good "grip" on the road. These are not the best tires for comfort or good fuel efficiency. But these tires are very popular with those who want to "feel the road!"
For the best control and mobility during winter conditions snow tires on all four wheels are usually the best option, especially here in Littleton, CO. The small grooves in the treads of these tires allow for better handling in extreme conditions. Studs can also be added to provide even better traction.
