Lunar Low Automotive: Buying A New Set Of All-Season Tires

When water builds up between your tires and the roads in Wilmington 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 Wilmington 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 Lunar Low 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 910-769-0994 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".

Not sure which set of tires is best for your car? Stop by our location at 521 Wellington Ave or call us at 910-769-0994 and let one of our tire experts help you decide which tire is best for your car.

What People Say About Us

Wilmington
  • Took a chance on these guys based on the good reviews they had on multiple sites. I'm so glad I did, they definitely deserve all the 5star reviews. First let me say my issue with my Jeep Wrangler (the dreaded death wobble) was going to be costly no matter where I took it, but Lunar Low was very upfront about what needed to be done and how much it was going to be, and honestly they came in at a lower of a price than I thought it was going to be. Wayne (one of the owners), was very thorough about why each thing needed to be replaced and what was more important if I couldn't do it all at once....I was so impressed I decided to buy my new tires there as well. If you have a Jeep or a 4x4 of any kind this is the place to take it. Lunar Low has earned all my future business

  • David and his team are fantastic. We took in a used vehicle we were considering purchasing for a pre-sale inspection and they quickly identified some key issues that saved us from making a big mistake and ultimately saved our wallets too! Very friendly, pleasant to work with, open and honest communication. I can't thank them enough!

  • We were vacationing in the area and discovered an issue with our Jeep Wrangler. My husband called this repair shop and they were able to get us in the next morning and took our vehicle first since we were on vacation and had no other vehicle. We needed brakes, rotors, and caliber replaced. We were nervous to take it to a place we didn't know but knew it wouldn't be safe to drive it home to Pennsylvania. They did a fantastic job. They called with details and cost before completing the work and called a day later to follow up to make sure everything was working right. It was of course, and the price was very reasonable. We recommended them to our family who is local to the area. We appreciate them taking care of our jeep.

  • Would recommend this place honest fast comfort little pricey but well worlth the service and warranty
