Evans Automotive & Tire Center: Buy A New Set Of Winter Snow Tires

At Evans Automotive & Tire 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 Evans Automotive & Tire Center today at 1585 Pinecrest St 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.

    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
