UNIVERSITY AUTO AND TIRE OFFERS A WIDE VARIETY OF TIRES TO MEET YOUR DRIVING NEEDS
Seasonal Tires - Change these tires twice a year for the best possible tire performance in summer and winter.
Snow/Winter Tires: The strongest possible winter traction thanks to tread edges that bite into ice and snow, generous channels that send away slush.
Summer Tires: Lower rolling resistance compared to winter, all-season, or off-road tires thanks to flatter treads.
Year-Round Tires - These versatile tires balance the features needed for summer and winter driving, on and off the roads.
All-Season Tires: Used on most cars and are ideal for street driving in areas where winters are moderate.
All-Terrain Tires: Multipurpose tires that balance off-road traction and durability with comfortable, responsive highway handling. Ideal for a mixture of street driving and moderate off-road use.
Mud Tires: Off-road specialists that power through mud, rocks, sand, dirt, and deep snow.
Low Profile Tires: Enhanced cornering and handling thanks to wide treads and short sidewalls.
Performance Tires: Excellent traction, maneuverability and performance thanks to soft rubber compounds and stiff sidewalls.
SIGNS THAT YOU MAY NEED NEW TIRES
Sidewall damage: Tires with cracks, punctures, blisters, or bulges in the sidewall are no longer structurally sound and cannot be repaired.
Tread Depth: The legal minimum tire tread depth in the United States is 2/32" and many tire experts recommend replacing tires at 4/32"-6/32" tread depth or less, especially for tire types that benefit from a deeper tread (ex. snow tires, all-terrain tires, or mud tires).
EASY WAYS TO CHECK YOUR TIRES TREAD DEPTH
Take the U.S. Penny Test: Insert a penny (headfirst) into your tire tread. If you can see the top of Lincoln's head, it's time for new tires. If the top of Lincoln's head is covered, your tread is deeper than 2/32". On the tail side, if the top of the Lincoln Memorial is covered, your tread is deeper than 6/32".
Check the wear bars: Tire wear bars are situated at 2/32" of tread depth, so if any wear bar is worn, replace the tire right away. It's below the legal minimum tread depth.
DOES YOUR VEHICLE NEED AN ALIGNMENT
We recommend having your wheel alignment checked regularly to extend the life of your tires. It's also a good idea to have your wheel alignment done when you buy new tires, to ensure that your new tires wear down evenly from the day you drive them home.
BALANCING TIRES IS IMPORTANT FOR SAFETY
While tire imbalance is a common side effect of bumpy roads and other driving hazards, new tires should be checked for balance before mounting. Even new tires can have natural imbalance from the factory. Starting off with balanced tires and having the balanced checked as a regular part of tire service will help extend the life of your tires.
DOES MY TPMS SENSORS NEED SERVICE WHEN BUYING NEW TIRES
Maintaining proper tire pressure extends the life of your tires by preventing premature edge wear and other damage. Your TPMS system is there to alert you to dangerously low tire pressure which helps avoid dangerous tire blowout's. You don't want to miss this warning due to incorrect pressure measurements or a malfunction in your TPMS's alert function. Our technicians have the tools to check your TPMS sensors and if needed the kits to keep your vehicle working properly and get you safely back on the road.
