Summer Heat

July 23rd, 2014
Most of us know tires are one of the most important safety features of any vehicle and want to keep our tires in the best condition possible. However, what you do not know about tire wear and tire pressure could be damaging them the most. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Association, nearly 200 driving casualties per year occur at the hands of unmaintained tires. Right now it is estimated that 1 in 4 cars on the road are driving with underinflated tires.

Determining the Age of a Tire

February 14th, 2014
When it comes to determining the age of a tire, it is easiest to identify when the tire was manufactured by reading its Tire Identification Number (often referred to as the tire’s serial number or DOT number). Unlike vehicle identification numbers (VINs) and the serial numbers used on many other consumer goods (which identify one specific item), Tire Identification Numbers are really batch codes that identify several components.
 
The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) requires that Tire Identification Numbers be a combination of the letters DOT, followed by ten, eleven or twelve letters or numbers that identify the manufacturing location, tire size and manufacturer's code, along with the week and year the tire was m ...[more]

Choosing the Right Tire - Midtown Tire

November 25th, 2013

Choosing the Right TireWe know you've heard it before, but it's critical enough to repeat: the tires you choose for your vehicle are important. It is critical to understand that the tires on your vehicle are the one single link to the road surface. To keep the rest of your vehicle performing at its peak, your tires are the very foundation of your vehicle.

Different quality tires will last for different periods of time, depending on wear and tear. Regular maintenance is key to longer tread life, but tread wears down over time and with use. Once you get to the point where you need to replace your tires, there are several choices that you can make. The easiest choice is get the exact size and make that originally came on the vehicle, when it was new. Beyond that, you might consider going to a better quality tire or ...[more]

Are All-Season Tires Right For My Vehicle? - Midtown Tire

September 13th, 2013

The tire category of “All-Season Tires” can be a misleading term and this category gets the most questions out of any tire available. Basically, when you are purchasing All-Season tires, you are getting a very sturdy tire that will work well through various weather conditions as well as varying temperatures or climates. The types of tires that fall under the ‘All-Season’ tire category contain different types of tread compounds, designs, and mileage ratings, and there are some big differences between All-Season Tires, Regular, or ‘summer’ tires (sometimes also referred to as ‘three-season tires’), and Winter Tires.

One of the main differences is temperature. Temperature affects tire rubber. For example, firm rubber tha ...[more]

It's that wonderful time of year again, when winter starts to wind down, and spring and summer are just around the corner. After a long, cold, harsh winter, there is nothing better than more sunshine and warmer days. Driving is especially better with no more cold, wet, and slippery roads.

So, if you’re going to be driving in the hot weather, be sure that your vehicle has the right set of tires.

Having the right set of tires for the summer is as important as having the right set of tires for the winter.
