Picking the Right Tires in East Greenbush

Posted February 28, 2021 12:13 PM

Shopping for tires in East Greenbush can be bewildering because there are many choices. Let's simplify. There are four main classifications of tires, each designed for different purposes.

First off, there are summer tires. Those who buy summer tires in East Greenbush are looking for maximum summertime performance. The rubber is a little softer to help stick to the road on fast corners on NY roads. The tread has wide blocks at the shoulder to stiffen the tire in turns. The tread design can handle rain but really isn't set up for snow and ice.

Next comes winter tires. East Greenbush people buy winter tires because they still like performance driving when it's cold and slippery on NY roads, so they need a tread design that'll really bite into ice and snow. The rubber compound is formulated to stay pliable when temperatures drop below 45 degrees F/7 degrees C so they get great traction even on dry roads. On the other end of the winter tire spectrum are tires designed to handle well in severe ice and snow conditions.

The third category is all-season tires. Most new cars in East Greenbush showrooms come with all-season tires. This is a tire that is designed to be used all year round. The tread design and rubber compound is a compromise that won't give you the extreme capabilities of summer or winter tires; but if you're driving and weather conditions aren't at the extreme ends of the range, all-season tires might suit you just fine.

The last category is what you might have on your SUV or pickup. All-terrain or off-road tires are designed for both highway and off-road use – a tire that gets good traction in the dirt and on off-road obstacles, but still performs well on paved East Greenbush roads.

Choosing the right tire is important for East Greenbush car owners. Talk with your Pro Tech Tire & Auto tire professional about your driving requirements and receive valuable guidance on tires that will meet your needs.

Called late in afternoon and explained to owner my car needed to be aligned...we discussed what was going on when driving. Asked could I bring car in tomorrow morning beteeen 8 and 9 and leave for them to work on. By 4pm was driving home, car handling fine. Very thorough in explanation of what to expect when dropped off and what was done when picked it up. I was treated as a knowledgeable adult not just a wonan as most garaged do. Very pleased!
