Summertime -- time for new tires!

Ah, the dog days of summer... long trips to the coast or the countryside, kids playing ball games outside, the oppressive heat sitting in traffic trying to make it home after slaving eight hours or more at your job wishing you were golfing or fishing or in Vegas instead...what's not to like about this time of the year?
Summer is a good time of the year to switch to summer tires. For those of us living in northern climates and running snow tires, the ritual of switching to summer rubber is almost second-nature -- or at least, it should be. Winter tires will give you unparalleled performance during the cold months, but will not perform well once the temperatures start to rise. At Tire Rack, we recommend running winter tires from Thanksgiving to Tax Day, which means if you still running winter tires, you're overdue!

The proof is in the pudding: Bridgestone WS-60 (winter) and Bridgestone RE-11 (summer)

The good news is, we're here to help. We have a variety of Ultra High Performance, Maximum Performance, and Extreme Performance Summer tires to fit virtually all budgets and applications. And while you're at it, you can also take advantage of our wheel and tire packages which will include mounting and balancing, and in most cases, all the hardware (lug nuts, centering rings, etc.) free of charge.

There are also a few rebates and special offers going on right now, so now is a good time to replace those winter or all-season tires for summer tires and start enjoying true, spirited summer driving. After all, what good are expressway exit ramps if you can take them as if your hair was on fire?

(For the record, and for my lawyer's sanity, I drive the speed limit all the time. Speeding is bad! BAD!)
