Purchasing winter tires can be a big decision but will greatly improve your safety on the road. They use special rubber compounds and a high density of sipes to improve traction, stopping and handling whenever the thermometer dips below 7°C/45°F. Although an all-season tire is good in many conditions, it doesn't provide the same grip and control that a winter tire can in cold or snowy weather. All winter tires purchased from Tire Handlers are conveniently installed and balanced on your vehicle at your location.
Our tire shop has a full line of summer tires that will improve the performance and aesthetics of your vehicle. They are designed for handling and stability, which can result in stiffer handling. This may affect the comfort of your ride. The tread is also wider to provide more contact with the road and better dry traction. When shopping for summer tires it is important to know that the special compound used enhances performance but may not provide the same tread wear as their all-season counterparts.
As the name suggests, all-seasons are designed to provide safe driving over a wide range of conditions. Their advantage is that they can remain on your vehicle spring, summer and fall, but may not be suitable in cold temperatures or snowy weather. They also provide a quieter ride than their winter counterparts. Our tire shop has a wide range of all-season tires including Michelin, Goodyear, Bridgestone and more.
