Evans Automotive & Tire Center: Buying A New Set Of All-Season Tires

When water builds up between your tires and the roads in Saint Augustine 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 Saint Augustine 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 Evans Automotive & Tire Center. 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 904-819-6599 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 1585 Pinecrest St or call us at 904-819-6599 and let one of our tire experts help you decide which tire is best for your car.

    My daughter's car is there right now so this review is regarding their customer service. My kiddo LOVES her car and when she had to have to towed due to a meeting with a curb, she was very sad. I was looking for answers as we rely on her car for school transportation. They called us when the car had arrived and been looked over. We both called to check on the car AND our friend called to check on the car. These people have been patient, professional, and understanding of out situation. My daughter will review the work on the car... but I had to say this shop is next level awesome with communication and professionalism.

    Great place, friendly and honest. Very careful when working on anything visible. Mounted and balanced a new set of tires on new black aluminum rims, not even a scratch. Will be taking my 64 Pontiac soon for a front end alignment. I trust these people.

    Brought my 07 F-150 there to get the tires rotated, balanced, and front end alignment. They were able to handle the 37x13.5R22 wheels and tires without issue (while some other shops said no altogether) They charged very reasonably and held to their quote over the phone. They finished the job in the time they described and took the truck in very quickly. I will definitely be returning to Evan's Automotive for work on the truck in the future. 10/10
