AutoVaun: Buy A New Set Of Winter Snow Tires

At AutoVaun we know that icy roads can be dangerous if you don't have the right winter tires. Winter tires are engineered for traction in ice and snow when the temperature drops below 45 degrees. Winter tires leverage a combination of ribs, grooves, lugs, sipes, and studs.

Winter tires are made with rubber that stays softer and more pliable in cold winter temperatures. Flexible rubber is one reason you get more traction on snow and ice. However, the softer rubber also wears down more quickly. Replace your snow tires if the deep grooves that work to expel snow and slush buildup are worn down. Come by AutoVaun today at 5015 E McKellips Road and we can help you decide if it's time for a new set of snow tires.

The 5 Most Important Things To Know About Winter Snow Tires

Ribs: The edge of a snow tire has a chunky angled tread designed to move snow and ice away from the outer edge of the tire.

Grooves: Snow tires offer deep grooves to move snow away from the tire. Deep grooves trap snow into the void allowing for total contact between the tread and the road. The angle of the grooves allows the tire to eject snow from the grooves when the vehicle is in motion.

Lugs: Snow tires offer an aggressive tread in the center of the tire designed to remove snow and ice build-up. Winter tires pair more lugs with deeper grooves than an all-season tires. Sets of lugs and grooves make up a tread block. Each tread block has irregular, sharp edges that increase traction. This special design allows winter snow tires to cut through snow and ice.

Sipes: Winter tires feature-heavy siping. "Siping" is a small patterned slit on the lugs that creates extra edges for better road grip. For added traction, many tire shops offer custom siping to improve starting and stopping.

Studs: There are two types of winter snow tires, studded and non-studded. Studded tires are embedded with small metal studs that provide the best traction in tough winter conditions. In some states studded winter tires are illegal. As the name would suggest, non-studded snow tires do not have studs. Non-studded snow tires do not provide the same high level of traction offered by studded tires but still provide substantially more grip than an M+S all-weather tire. Non-studded winter tires are often paired with snow chains for extremely heavy snow and ice.

    New customer who had an awesome experience. I took my car in for an oil change and some front end work. Richard got me in quickly and got all the service done the same day. He followed up with me the next day on some additional work I wanted to have priced. Great service and communication. So glad I found a place that I can trust that is close to my house, with great rates.

    We have been going to Autovaun for years, they are outstanding. They are not a discount service center so do not expect to save money over a dealership, but they are truly honest, there have been many times where a dealer told me one thing, with multiple items needing to be replaced and at a huge expense and autovaun found and repaired the actual single broken part. We have never had an issue with any work done and all the repairs have lasted us.

    They filled my AC with freon and put in a dye that would let them know where the leak was. Since it was leaking I had them fix the ac. While there they noted my check engine light was on, explained to me it was most likely the catalytic converter and called the dealer finding out it was still under warranty. He told me to have them run a diagnostic. Sure enough, the catalytic converter needed to be replaced and everything was covered. I really appreciate Autovaun for going above and beyond to help me out like that.

    Quick in, low wait time, and quick out for headlight bulb replacements. Saved me over $100 instead of going to the stealership. I would definitely come here again .
