Treat Your Vehicle to Good Tires at Superior Auto Care

Posted July 19, 2020 8:08 AM

When we shop for shoes, most of us know that we can get two pairs of cheap shoes or one good pair for about the same price. And since the two cheap pairs wear out in about the same time as the good pair, there really is no difference in cost. If you like having a closet full of shoes to match your moods and outfits, then cheap shoes can be what you want. But if you spend a lot of time on your feet, you probably know that cheap shoes can come with an added cost of sore feet and other foot ailments. When you add in the benefits of comfort and protection, the more expensive shoes are actually the better value.

Buying tires at Superior Auto Care in CAPE CORAL is a lot like buying shoes, except that CAPE CORAL vehicles don't have changeable apparel and don't need a closet full of tires to match. Vehicles spend a lot of time on their tires—all the time, in fact—so they need tires that can stand up to the job. Tires are work shoes: they have to deal with a lot of crazy FL road conditions, all while carrying the weight of a vehicle and its passengers.

Bad tires, like cheap shoes, can also be a safety concern for CAPE CORAL drivers. Tires need good traction, and they need to be strong enough to handle the loads they carry. Vehicles that carry heavy loads or tow trailers around FL need tires with a high load rating, in the same way that you are better off on a rough FL mountain trail with sturdy hiking boots rather than flip-flops.

The best tires on the market are called Tier 1 tires. These are high-quality tires engineered to stand up to a lot of wear while maintaining good traction. They are also the most expensive tires on the market, although prices don't vary much from brand to brand.

Tire chain stores in CAPE CORAL often carry tires with their own brand name. These are private label tires. They are less expensive than Tier 1 tires but are still a quality product. In fact, many private label tires sold in the CAPE CORAL area are manufactured by the same companies that make Tier 1 tires. Don't hesitate to ask your Superior Auto Care tire professional who makes their private brand.

The cheapest tires on the FL tire market are Tier 3 tires. Most of these tires are imported from Asia or South America, and they just don't have the same standard of engineering behind them that the higher-priced tires have. When it comes to Tier 3 tires, you get what you pay for.

At Superior Auto Care, we sometimes express tire quality in terms of the warranty. In other words, we call a tire a “40,000 mile/65,000 km tire,” or a "60,000 mile/100,000 km tire." This refers to the number of miles/kilometers a tire will be under warranty. Tires with a higher mileage warranty are made with higher quality rubber compounds and have more tread. As you might expect, they also cost more than tires with low mileage warranties.

Cheap tires often have no warranty at all. However, if you find yourself in a position where you need new tires and you're really strapped for cash, purchasing Tier 3 tires is better than waiting until you can afford Tier 1. It's always better to drive on new tires, even cheap ones, than driving on tires that are worn past their safety limits.

That said, if you're driving on Tier 3 tires, it's a good idea to budget and plan to buy higher-quality tires the next go-around. Two sets of cheap tires may wear out in the same time as one set of quality tires, but the quality tires actually cost less than two sets of cheap tires. That's the great fallacy of cheap tires. In the long run, they actually cost more than good tires and come with significantly reduced performance and durability to boot. Not exactly the best value for CAPE CORAL area drivers.

So, some good auto advice would be to always buy as much tire as you can afford. That way you'll get the most durability and performance and the most mileage out of every tire. Plus, with a better tire, there's some peace of mind that comes with knowing you won't have to purchase tires as often.

Good vehicle care requires checking your tires occasionally for tread wear and road damage. Practicing this preventive maintenance can help you avoid flats and blowouts.

    As a woman who knows not much about cars, I am always apprehensive about going to a repair shop, until my friend recommended me Brian's Complete Automotive repair shop. I was immediately satisfied with the quote I was given. I was able to get my car in the same day as the initial phone call and was returned by end of day. Not only was the repair fixed properly it was done in a friendly and timing matter. Thank you so much for renewing my faith in mechanics! Love this place! What a painless experience! Thanks guys! Yes, I would gladly recommend this business to a family and friends. Donna K.

    I looked everywhere for an honest mechanic with affordable prices and he was recommended to me by my friends. I was very happy with the service he did on my Volvo convertible and my moms Toyota. He was quick too and since I work not too far he drove me to work and when the car was ready he picked me up. 5 star service for sure! :)

    Called Miguel on a rear brake issue on my 2015 Ford Edge. Expecting I would have to make a appointment, he said to bring it over and he'd take a look at it. Long story short within 3 hrs I had new rear brakes and rotors and back on the road. Without a doubt, the best service at reasonable prices. I highly recommend this shop. Thanks again Miguel for your help.

    Miguel is amazing and one of the best mechanics we have ever worked with. He kept us updated throughout the process with texts and pictures. He finished the work very quickly. He went above and beyond to fix things like brake lights and window issues without charge. He was pleasant and easy to work with. We have a long history of used cars/mechanics and Superior exceeded expectations. Thanks Miguel, the world needs more mechanics like you.

    Unmatched customer service, timelineness, pricing, quality of repair, and honesty. Miguel and his staff work around the clock to diagnose and repair their customers cars. I?ve trusted Miguel with everything from a new transmission to tires to oil changes; you name it, they do it. He?s even worked in my out of town sisters vehicle on the weekend short notice. 100% trustworthy and not a pushy salesman mechanic. I won?t take my vehicles to anyone else.
