Why It’s Time To Check Your Tires

As October moves us further into beautiful autumn in Calcium, we need to consider the months ahead. November and December will mean Holiday travel for many of us. And even once we complete that traveling, we can expect January snow to slow us down.


That makes October the right time to think about your tires. School’s in session, Halloween is coming up, and both these things involve excited kids running out into traffic. It would be best if you had your tires in good working order. You need to make sure they have been rotated once in their cycle, have good tread, and are aligned correctly before the ice and snow make driving infinitely more difficult for you.


Old-timers will tell the newcomers-- Calcium snow is nothing to blow off. You’ll want to be ready for it. October is the last open month before the holiday season starts, plus Halloween and kids being back to school. October is the best month to check out your tires; it’s also time to start thinking about Winterizing your car very soon.


It’s important to know that if your journeys take you down rural roads in Calcium in the wintertime, you might need winter tires and possibly chains. We recommend winterizing your car, building an emergency kit, and ensuring your car battery is in good working shape.


We also need to mention that this month is our annual Brakes for Breasts promotion! Throughout October, Service Plus is giving away FREE quality brake pads or shoes as part of our annual fundraising effort to find a cure for Breast Cancer. If you participate, you will pay for the labor and any other necessary parts to installing the brake pads/shoes and nothing else. 10% of the labor proceeds will go towards research for the Cleveland Clinic Breast Cancer Vaccine Fund. 


So, please help your car and serve the greater good by getting your brakes inspected during October! Service Plus Automotive has been part of the Calcium, NY community since 1992; most of our team are parents, too! That is why we use high-quality products, and we provide an exceptional peace-of-mind warranty.
