When it’s time to start shopping for new Tulsa tires, call the Tulsa tire specialists at Same Day.

You’re planning to spend most of the day at the boat, sport and travel show eyeing the boats, RVs, trailers and other products. Have fun. You ought to have a good day for it even if it is a bit overcast.

But that’s just the lull before the storm. Literally. Forecasters are predicting thunderstorms on Tuesday, Thursday and the week after next. Now’s the time to check your car to make sure it’s ready for wet weather.

It’s especially important to check your tires to make sure they have enough tread to be safe on the road. Tires don’t have to have bald spots, or really worn tread to be a safety concern on wet roads. As Consumer Reports points out, “Car tires lose grip long before they wear out, but a [2018] study from the Automobile Association of America (AAA) provides sobering information about just how dangerous older tires can become on rain-slickened roads.

“The study released [last spring] shows that driving on wet roads with tires that have only 4⁄32 inch of tread depth left could increase the stopping distance of a passenger car by up to 87 feet and reduce a driver’s ability to control a vehicle by 33 percent.”

Consumer Reports adds, “Vehicles braking at 60 mph with mostly worn tires were still traveling at 40 mph when they reached the point where vehicles with new tires had stopped, he pointed out.

“All-season tires are considered worn at 2⁄32 inch. They typically start with between 10⁄32 inch and 11⁄32 inch of tread.”

It could be time to consider a new set of Tulsa tires.
