Absolute Auto Repair Center: Buying A New Set Of All-Season Tires

When water builds up between your tires and the roads in Fitchburg 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 Fitchburg 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 Absolute Auto Repair 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 978-342-3100 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".

    This will be the second time I have had to edit my review in about five years...Decent [core] group of mechanics. Yet I have been forced to go elsewhere for basic services like oil changes, etc. They refuse to schedule time for me, and require me to drop of my vehicle first thing so they can 'get to it when the lift is free.' I don't understand what is so hard about scheduling the lift for each customer, especially when I said I am willing to wait longer for my scheduled appointment. But not only does the drive through places do just as well with such services, but they are faster and cheaper. When I have a serious mechanical problem, I will still go to Absolute, but anything else is just too much hassle. They have lost me there.

    Super quick and reliable! I walked in with a tire concern and they took care of me ASAP, was probably only waiting 15 min max. Thank you for all your help!

    The good: Communication is great, service - no problem there, quick, and they know what they're doing. Also they do a good job explaining other issues that they see pop up, but without the pressure to try to get you to fix it with them immediately. The excellent: The mechanic that works there is very pleasant to talk to. I'm no pro at cars, but I try to understand what's going on, and he really takes the time to explain everything clearly. You can tell he's really passionate about his work and wants the best for his customers. The bad: There was a grease/oil stain left on the seat of my car. Party foul. But not a deal breaker. Overall I'll certainly be back. I liked the service. EDIT: they offered to take my car in and clean it up for me. They ended up taking my car to a detail shop and my car has never looked so clean! I'm very happy about it. Excellent customer service. 5/5
