When water builds up between your tires and the roads in Stone Lake 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 Stone Lake 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 Midway Automotive. 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 715-865-2581 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".

What our clients are saying about us
We have established longterm and stable partnerships with various clients thanks to our excellence in solving their automotive needs!
I cannot say enough great things about Paul and Midway Automotive! I had a flat tire, limped into Midway and Paul took the time to look at my tire to see if it could be fixed. Unfortunately, it was not fixable and Paul did not have the tire I needed, but he put my spare on and gave me a few names to call to get a tire. In addition, he did some calling on his own to see if he could find a used tire for me! What a great guy! He did not have to do that, but went over and beyond to help! I would take my car or truck to Paul and trust him completely to do whatever I need! Midway is a little treasure in Stone Lake! No need to go to the bigger cities when Paul can help!
We found ourselves in need of an automotive shop to look at our car. Being from out of state, we contacted the nearest shop, Midway Automotive, Inc and hoped for the best. We were not disappointed. They got us in quickly, assessed the issue, and got us on our way the next morning; honest with what needed to be done and didn't overcharge us! I wish they were located where we live as I would take my cars to them every time! Thank you, Paul and your mechanics for a job well job.
