When water builds up between your tires and the roads in Pocatello 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 Pocatello 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 Master Mechanix. 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 208-478-8878 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".

What People Say About Us
I looked at the reviews online and decided to give Master Mechanix a try and was not disappointed. They fixed my truck in like a quarter of the time I was expecting and at a incredibly reasonable price. Ever since I have been driving I have never had good experiences with mechanics, but this is the exception. They were very nice and did not try and sell me a bunch of stuff I did not need. Next time any of my vehicles has a problem I know where I will be going.
I had my vehicle towed here for repairs after a breakdown on the freeway a few weeks ago and, although they were a little backed up due to bad weather, they figured the problem out quickly and let me know exactly what to expect in cost. The part that was broken was still under warranty by the manufacturer, so Master Mechanix took care of the work and warranty reimbursement with me only having to pay for the initial diagnosis! Very happy with how everything went and would recommend these guys to anyone. Thanks!
Best general mechanic I've ever been to. I've always gone to the dealership where I've got my car because they are they only ones I trust even though they are very expensive. I came here because the dealership said they didn't have the parts to do the job and recommended Master Mechanix. Very fast and cheap. very happy with the service and will go back in the future.
Ray is an excellent technician! High quality work and very honest! I have been going to Master Mechanix for years.
I have brought several of my vehicles in to Master Mechanix for troubleshooting and repair over the last 15 years I have lived in the Pocatello area. Their pricing is very reasonable, the repairs are quick and I have never been disappointed or unsatisfied with the service. Their work is always top notch! Ray always takes the time to explain options, pricing and repair time and doesn't ever attempt to "pile on" a bunch of other work. I continuously recommend Master Mechanix to family and friends.
They provided great service and great education about how to properly care for my car. Thanks guys!!
