JayBees Auto Service: Buy A New Set Of Winter Snow Tires

At JayBees Auto Service we know that icy roads can be dangerous if you don't have the right winter tires. Winter tires are engineered for traction in ice and snow when the temperature drops below 45 degrees. Winter tires leverage a combination of ribs, grooves, lugs, sipes, and studs.

Winter tires are made with rubber that stays softer and more pliable in cold winter temperatures. Flexible rubber is one reason you get more traction on snow and ice. However, the softer rubber also wears down more quickly. Replace your snow tires if the deep grooves that work to expel snow and slush buildup are worn down. Come by JayBees Auto Service today at 5070 E 22nd St and we can help you decide if it's time for a new set of snow tires.

The 5 Most Important Things To Know About Winter Snow Tires

Ribs: The edge of a snow tire has a chunky angled tread designed to move snow and ice away from the outer edge of the tire.

Grooves: Snow tires offer deep grooves to move snow away from the tire. Deep grooves trap snow into the void allowing for total contact between the tread and the road. The angle of the grooves allows the tire to eject snow from the grooves when the vehicle is in motion.

Lugs: Snow tires offer an aggressive tread in the center of the tire designed to remove snow and ice build-up. Winter tires pair more lugs with deeper grooves than an all-season tires. Sets of lugs and grooves make up a tread block. Each tread block has irregular, sharp edges that increase traction. This special design allows winter snow tires to cut through snow and ice.

Sipes: Winter tires feature-heavy siping. "Siping" is a small patterned slit on the lugs that creates extra edges for better road grip. For added traction, many tire shops offer custom siping to improve starting and stopping.

Studs: There are two types of winter snow tires, studded and non-studded. Studded tires are embedded with small metal studs that provide the best traction in tough winter conditions. In some states studded winter tires are illegal. As the name would suggest, non-studded snow tires do not have studs. Non-studded snow tires do not provide the same high level of traction offered by studded tires but still provide substantially more grip than an M+S all-weather tire. Non-studded winter tires are often paired with snow chains for extremely heavy snow and ice.

What Our Customers Are Saying

I do not even know what to call what my vehicle needs. In any case, Dr. J and her gang of highly motivated and talented folks have been trying to figure it out for quite some time. It gets better for a bit and then oops - crappy again. We are to a point of experimenting with all kinds of odd stuff I do not understand. I keep thinking I am done with the truck and then I see the cost of used trucks and change my mind back again. Dr. J and her staff have been nothing but friendly, knowledgeable, reasonable and just hard working great folks for the whole 34 years I have been using their services. Whether or not my old truck recovers and remains usable (the goal), I will always be thankful for the care and wisdom of the JayBees crew!

So I've written one Google review not so long ago but this place so impresses me that I have to do an update. We have been customers for about two years now and they have saved me probably several hundred dollars by not repairing things that I erroneously thought were problems. I wouldn't have known the difference. That has happened twice in the past. Same thing today, a simple fix for something the dealer would probably have charged a lot more to take care of. This is a small family shop that holds itself to the highest standards of integrity and service. What a refreshing combo.

Spoke to Shelly about transmission service for possible slipping. She thoroughly explained a Transmission specialist is best and then referred a few placed. Shelly's customer appreciation shines bright even on a phone call. Thank you for your help.

In a world of dissonance and diminishing customer service, Jaybee's sets a fine example for customer care. I never feel taken advantage of here and I appreciate their expertise especially finding problems before they get worse. Shelly is upbeat and sincere, a winning combination in my book.
