Proper Storing and Caring for Your Seasonal Tires

Michigan drivers are no stranger to seasonal tires. Summer tires don't give proper traction when it gets too cold out, and winter tires quickly wear down in warmer climates. The weather is finally warming up, and it's almost time to switch your tires again. Here are a few tire tips and tricks to help you keep your seasonal tires healthy.

  • Before you store your seasonal tires, give them a thorough scrubbing with soap, water, and a tire brush
  • Once your tires are clean, place each tire in a large, airtight bag. Avoid any moisture, and remove as much air from the bag as possible, then secure the bags with tape
  • Keep your tires in a cool, dry location, away from direct sunlight
  • Try to store your tires standing upright, if possible

Remember, tires are an important part of your vehicle, so it's vital to take good care of them. Healthy tires give you increased traction and control, and they even keep you safer on the go. If you take good care of your tires, they will take care of you.
