Many drivers spend time on the road in the summer. Time for New Orleans drivers to check their tires.
Summertime, with its road trips and other fun activities, is just around the corner. And, you want to make sure your car is in good working order before you head out whether it's a long road trip, a day trip, or even a trip around New Orleans to the Cafe Hope Food Fest on Saturday.
A good place for New Orleans drivers to start is on the ground. Or at least the parts of your car or truck that touch the ground - the tires. Readers Digest warns that you should "be prepared. Tires are more prone to blowouts in the hot summer months, because drivers are often on a sizzling road with the heavier loads for longer periods of time."
Readers Digest adds, "Underinflated tires are most at risk, since the lack of air pressure puts the tires' components under increased strain; but overinflated ones are more likely to hydroplane in a summer rainstorm."
Of course, the best place to get your tires checked is Twin Tire and Auto Care. Twin Tire has been the New Orleans area's trusted auto care and auto repair shop since 1973. Twin Tire's certified auto technicians will make sure your tires are good to go on that road trip or that jaunt around New Orleans. And, if you happen to need new tires, Twin Tire carries all sizes, brands and styles to fit any vehicle or driving need.
Twin Tire has three convenient locations around New Orleans to serve you: Marrero, Hammond and Harvey. Twin Tire also has a New Orleans location for heavy commercial vehicles in Harahan.
When you're here, be sure to sign up for the Twin Tire Rewards program. The free program gives you points for every qualified purchase. You can trade in those points for discounts on auto care and auto repair, travel perks, or donate them to a local charity like Cafe Hope. (Did we mention the Cafe Hope Food Fest on Saturday?
