In Tires and Wheelsby Steves Auto Repair and Tire

Are you looking for an off road tire?

The Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure with Kevlar is a good option for trucks and Jeeps.

Offering all-season traction, this tire is reliable in the rain and snow, and has a 60,000 mile warranty.

It’s made with Kevlar, a heat resistant material that’s used in bicycle tires and bulletproof vests. 

Kevlar acts as a force shield against sticks, rocks and other items that could puncture a tire’s sidewall, whether you’re off-roading or facing debris on the road.

This tire is good in the snow, but is even better on dry and wet roads. And since we mainly get rain around here, this tire is good for driving in Northern Virginia traffic, with knowing you have the capability to go off road.

Is your hub bearing going bad?

In Tires and Wheelsby Steves Auto Repair and Tire

A hub bearing is a large assembly typically used on four-wheel and front-wheel vehicles.

It takes the place of what used to be called “wheel bearings.”

A wheel hub gets pressed into hub bearings, with the axle running through them.

A lot of times, the Anti-lock Brake System (ABS) is built into the hub bearings.

This allows the computer to determine how fast each wheel is spinning.

Hub bearings can wear out over time, and driving conditions can impact their lifespan.

For example, if you hit a lot of potholes, the wheel wearing can wear out more quickly.

If the hub bearing has gone bad, you will usually hear a roaring sound.

When giving quotes to our customers, we usually give the price for a hub bearing as well as a hub, because there are some things you can’t predict.

We would rather plan for the worst and hope for the best.

Winter tire from Kelly-Springfield

In Tires and Wheelsby Steves Auto Repair and Tire

Winter will be arriving in less than a month.

To prepare for the inclement weather that comes with it, you may want to consider a set of winter tires.

Kelly Winter Access tires feature traction control that makes them ideal for snowy and icy conditions.

The tread pattern has more of an aggressive stance, allowing it to bite down.

Through its zigzag blades, it’s able to push away water and slush.

A Kelly Winter Access tire’s tread compound is different than an all-season tire. The rubber stays more pliable during colder weather.
