Gary Wille's Auto & Tire Center: Buying A New Set Of All-Season Tires

Gary Wille's Auto & Tire Center


When water builds up between your tires and the roads in Oregon your car is at risk of hydroplaning. A new set of all-season tires are designed to deliver good comfort and handling on the highway, as well as reliable traction in the rain. In the past, most all-season tires featured symmetrical tread patterns, however, there are many new all-season tires that are now featuring an asymmetrical tread pattern. An asymmetrical pattern may offer higher speed and load ratings for your car or truck on wet roads.

Each all-season tire is constructed with a series of internal steel belts, polyester cord and rubber compounds that are designed for traction and performance in wet or dry conditions. All-season tires are not the best option for tough winter conditions such as snow and ice. However, a new set of all-season tires offers drivers in Oregon confident performance during nice and moderate weather conditions.

All-season tires offer deep grooves and blades to channel water away from the tire. Grooves widen to help displace water on the road as your tire wears. As tire tread blades become more shallow with wear they will open up to become wider grooves. A dryer tire provides more grip and minimizes the possibility of hydroplaning in the rain.

All-season tires offer a smooth, quiet ride by adding an extra layer of super-shock absorbent layer of rubber between the tread layer and steel belts. The extra rubber cushion insulates against road vibration and impacts.

Affording a new set of all-season tires has never been easier at Gary Wille's Auto & Tire Center. Ask us about offsetting the cost of a set of tires with manufacturer rebates. Most name-brand tire manufacturers offer rebates on all-season or touring tires. This helps keep the cost of a new set of tires low. Give us a call today at 608-835-7339 and ask us about the cost of a set of tires with a manufacturer rebate. One of our tire specialists will be happy to help.

Top name brand tires offer more than just rebates. Brands such as Bridgestone, Goodyear and Michelin feature all-season tires with the highest UTQG (Uniform Tire Quality Grading) rating. The rating system was developed by the US Department of Transportation, which helps consumers compare and rate tires on tread wear, traction, and temperature. The government mandates that tires have at least a 100 UTQG wear rating. Most sets of new all-season tires have a UTQG rating of 400, meaning that they will last four times longer than the government mandate.

However, please don't link tread wear grades with your projected tire mileage. Each new all-season tire also comes with a traction and temperature rating that represents the level of grip a tire has under normal road conditions. New tires have a grade of "A" for superior, "B" for good and "C" for average. Most name-brand all-season tires have a grade of "A".

Not sure which set of tires is best for your car? Stop by our location at 320 N Burr Oak Ave or call us at 608-835-7339 and let one of our tire experts help you decide which tire is best for your car.

This was my first experience, and I was blown away! Service was scheduled for 10-12 a.m., and when they realized it would be longer than than that, provided me with a loaner. They also compensated me for the delay. I received a detailed report of what was checked out. The young men I dealt with were extremely friendly and kind. I knew if Tom Stoehr could trust them with his business, so could I. I now have my new mechanic and I couldn’t be happier! One more thing that's long overdue (because I can't figure out how to do a new review) . . . one day last summer, I showed up unannounced with my Can Am Spyder, as I needed the tire pressure reduced. They took care of it immediately and got me on my way. Can't beat the service, professionalism, and personal treatment that this business provides! Thank you!

I have two service appointments to comment on, one with my wife's vehicle and the other with my vehicle. My wife's vehicle required maintenance and repair and we received a detailed explanation of what needed to be done, and why. We also received numerous photographs identifying the problems. The work was extensive and my wife was given a free loaner vehicle to use. The staff were very friendly, polite and professional. All services were completed in a timely manner. Very well done! My experience involved a routine oil change and tire rotation. I was also impressed with the friendly and professional manner in which staff interacted with me, and was very satisfied with the cost. I have also read the Code of Ethics posted on the web site and applaud the transparency and professionalism. I am happy to support a local family-owned business and will return soon for an additional service.
