Tire Tip: Don't Deflate Tires for Better Traction

November 10th, 2015

Tire tip of the day: Some drivers follow the old wives’ tale advice to reduce air pressure in tires during cold weather to increase traction.

The problem: While it MIGHT increase traction in some instances, it will cause undue tire wear when the weather warms.

Solution: Keep tire pressure at recommended levels.

Don't feel comfortable doing the above?

Any location of 106 St Tire & Wheel will check your tire pressure FREE.

We will check your tire tread FREE.

We will fill your tires with compressed air to the recommendation of the manufacturer of your specific car FREE.

....and lots more. Just come on into any location, see above in the header, remember we are open at 2 Northern Blvd locations 24/7 and leave the rest to us.

Be SAFE, not sorry. Call us 718-446-6769 24 hours, holidays included, 7 days, closed only Christmas.
