Tire Care Advice

What kind of roads are you traveling on?

If you're like a majority of U.S. motorists, you've experienced very challenging road conditions lately. A study from TRIP, a national transportation research group, shows that 33 percent of major U.S. roads are in poor condition. Driving on these roads costs motorists an average of $377 in extra vehicle repairs.
Knowing this, you want to make sure your vehicle's tires are in optimum condition to handle the roads. The experts at Kendall Ford of Wasilla are here to help.

The advantages of keeping your tires properly inflated.

When your vehicle's tires are properly inflated, it can help you improve your fuel economy by 2 percent*. Proper inflation also optimizes your vehicles performance and handling, which will help you feel safer behind the wheel
A major cause of tire damage is improper inflation. Over time, your tires lose pressure which can cause irregular tread wear and poor gas mileage. On average, tires lose air at the rate of one pound per month. In colder temperatures, a tire will lose one pound of pressure for every 10-degree drop. A simple solution: check your tire pressure at least once a month for longer performance. Your vehicle may also be equipped with a tire pressure monitoring system. Displayed on your dashboard, it alerts you to sudden changes in tire pressure or low pressure in one or more of your tires.**

in Wasilla, Alaska

If you live in an area where the winter temperature averages below 45 degree, like the Wasilla, Alaska area, then you're going to need winter tires on your car, SUV,  AWD, etc.

Winter tires don't behave like All-Season tires, and their distinct differences can be the difference between stopping safely and skidding out in an emergency braking situation. Winter tires have special winter grade rubber designed specifically to increase traction, handling and braking in cold weather conditions including not ice and snow.

 

You might be asking, "How many winter tires should I get?"

This is one of the most common questions we are asked at Ford Wasilla come the winter season. Having four winter tires on the road is not just recommended, it's necessary.

In RWD and FWD vehicles, drivers think that the two drive wheels are the only important factors when changing to winter tires and the other two tires are just along for the ride. This mindset is outdated and no longer relevant because the design and composition of modern winter tires has changed ever so greatly. Today's winter tires are made of different composites and designs that increase winter weather traction by 25 to 50 percent more than older tires. The Rubber used on modern winter tires also helps adapt your driving experience towards dry and wet road conditions.

Using just two winter tires on a vehicle results in uneven traction that can have serious handling consequences. Using four winter tires ensures optimal traction and control for your car, or SUV. Please always use four winter tires, to ensure you and your vehicle's safety as well as the safety of others on the road.

 

What's the difference between Traction from snow tires and Traction Control?

Traction control prevents wheel spin in harsh driving conditions, but this particular system does not create any extra tire traction. Maximum traction is always contingent on the four contact points created by your tires. The better traction your tires provide, the more effectively the traction control system will help you drive more safely. Cold temperatures will cause all-season compounds to harden, losing elasticity and traction.
