Glenway Auto Center: Buy A New Set Of Winter Snow Tires

At Glenway Auto Center we know that icy roads can be dangerous if you don't have the right winter tires. Winter tires are engineered for traction in ice and snow when the temperature drops below 45 degrees. Winter tires leverage a combination of ribs, grooves, lugs, sipes, and studs.

Winter tires are made with rubber that stays softer and more pliable in cold winter temperatures. Flexible rubber is one reason you get more traction on snow and ice. However, the softer rubber also wears down more quickly. Replace your snow tires if the deep grooves that work to expel snow and slush buildup are worn down. Come by Glenway Auto Center today at 6135 Harrison Ave and we can help you decide if it's time for a new set of snow tires.

The 5 Most Important Things To Know About Winter Snow Tires

Ribs: The edge of a snow tire has a chunky angled tread designed to move snow and ice away from the outer edge of the tire.

Grooves: Snow tires offer deep grooves to move snow away from the tire. Deep grooves trap snow into the void allowing for total contact between the tread and the road. The angle of the grooves allows the tire to eject snow from the grooves when the vehicle is in motion.

Lugs: Snow tires offer an aggressive tread in the center of the tire designed to remove snow and ice build-up. Winter tires pair more lugs with deeper grooves than an all-season tires. Sets of lugs and grooves make up a tread block. Each tread block has irregular, sharp edges that increase traction. This special design allows winter snow tires to cut through snow and ice.

Sipes: Winter tires feature-heavy siping. "Siping" is a small patterned slit on the lugs that creates extra edges for better road grip. For added traction, many tire shops offer custom siping to improve starting and stopping.

Studs: There are two types of winter snow tires, studded and non-studded. Studded tires are embedded with small metal studs that provide the best traction in tough winter conditions. In some states studded winter tires are illegal. As the name would suggest, non-studded snow tires do not have studs. Non-studded snow tires do not provide the same high level of traction offered by studded tires but still provide substantially more grip than an M+S all-weather tire. Non-studded winter tires are often paired with snow chains for extremely heavy snow and ice.

TESTIMONIALS

Grateful to Glenway Auto Center for helping my family in a difficult situation. My daughter was traveling across country moving from the East coast out West when her engine died 45 miles outside of Cincinnati. Phil was kind enough to let us have her car towed to the shop even though they were booked solid for The next week. They assess the situation the next day and provided options. Parts were ordered, the car and my daughter's belonging were kept safe and she was able to get back on the road again. Thank you Mike for all your help and for the great communication throughout the process. Much appreciation!
As always feel so safe after they work on my car. A piece of the splash guard was hanging down. Just noticed by accident. Took it in imminently and they reattached it.
Dropped my van off with engine locked up. They went out of their way to fix it at the lowest price possible by finding a used cylinder head. The van runs better than it ever has. Thank you Phil and your team!
Great job. Everyone is always Friendly.
Glenway Auto Center is a great place. Appointment scheduling is easy and service is always top notch and reasonably priced. Staff are professional and friendly. I highly recommend Glenway Auto Center.
