Hello! My name is Ray Tucker, the Service Director for Kings Toyota. Today, we are going to talk about a few service tips.

So why you would want to replace the tires going into the coming winter is as winter progresses, the weather gets worse, and tire tread is the main factor in stopping distance.

As the weather turns to colder, slick ice, the tires are less likely to perform in the colder temperatures than they are in the summer temperatures.

The quickest and easiest way to find out if your tires need to be replaced is the amount of time it takes you to slow the vehicle and stop the vehicle.

And you can come into the dealership at any time for a free tire inspection.
