Get your tires right here at Transitowne Mitsubishi

Here at Transitowne Mitsubishi, we pride ourselves on being one of the premier Mitsubishi service centers here in the greater Williamsville, NY area, and with our vast selection of genuine Mitsubishi parts, there's very little that we can't handle. That said, while it's easy to remember stuff like oil changes, many drivers often overlook their tires. Now, you won't need to change your tires that often, but when you do, it's important to put your trust in a service center that knows exactly the type of tires your Mitsubishi needs and has them on hand. Fortunately, we aim to be just such a service center to drivers from Buffalo to West Seneca, NY, and we'd love to aid you with all your Mitsubishi tire needs.

What type of tires does your Mitsubishi need?

You may not consider it often, but not all tires are created equal, and finding the right ones for your Mitsubishi is of the utmost importance.

For most drivers from Williamsville to Cheektowaga, a good set of Mitsubishi-approved all-season tires will do just fine. True to their name, most all-season tires are formulated to provide good traction in wet and dry road conditions. When properly maintained and fully inflated, a good set of all-season tires can even help you achieve the best possible fuel economy with your vehicle.

On the other hand, when the temperature starts to drop and snow starts to fall, you'll want to swap over to a set of winter tires for your Mitsubishi. Made with a specific chemical composition of rubber designed to remain pliant and flexible in low temperatures, as well as unique tread designs that bite into snow and ice, providing confidence-inspiring traction in slippery conditions.

How do I know when I need to change the tires on my Mitsubishi?

While you could always bring your car over to our service center here in Williamsville to have your tires checked as part of a multi-point inspection, there's a quick and easy way to assess the wear of your tires at home.

When your car has been off for at least 30 minutes and parked on a level surface, take a penny an insert it upside down into the grooves in your tire tread, such that Abraham Lincoln's head on the coin is pointing downward. Ideally, the tire tread depth should cover up to Lincoln's hairline on the coin. Make sure to test at different points around the tire to check for uneven wear. A little more or less coverage is fine, but if you can see Lincoln's whole head on the coin, you need new tires. Also, don't forget to check for large or widening cracks on the tire side walls, as this can also be a significant sign of tire wear.

Of course, if you have any other questions about your Mitsubishi tires, don't hesitate to get in touch with us at Transitowne Mitsubishi, and let us show you why so many of your friends and neighbors entrust all their Mitsubishi tire needs to us.
