When water builds up between your tires and the roads in El Dorado 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 El Dorado 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 Automotive Specialists Inc.. 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 316-321-5130 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
My first visit due to my previous tech retiring and moving out of state. Auto Specialists inspected and got both our vehicles ready for winter in a VERY efficient and organized manner. These people are well organized, knowledgeable, and honest. Didn't try to pad the bill with unnecessary repairs or marketing practices. In fact, they found ways to save me costs while still doing top-notch work. I'm going to them from now on for all our vehicle maintenance and needs. I'm confident I'll have more high-rating reviews to share in the future.
I was driving from Kansas City to OKC, and had just had my brake pads replaced and rotors turned the day before. I pulled off for lunch and heard a terrible noise, apparently my caliper came loose. Luckily this place was less than a mile, so I limped it in. They were super friendly and helpful, even though they were short handed due to COVID. I was in and out in about 30 min even though they had other jobs. A++++
Above and beyond friendly service.
While my family was on a quick day trip out of town, our van broke down. We were able to locate the shop through AAA services. Mitch and his team were incredibly helpful and courteous. On what could have been a day being stranded away from home, we were in and out of there in just a couple hours. Our bill was even a pleasant surprise too! My family is very grateful and we appreciate all the help from Automotive Specialists of El Dorado. Our only regret is that we do not live closer to come back for all our vehicle maintenance.
Thanks again Mitch!
My daughter just moved in to her apartment at Butler Community College and she suddenly had driving issues with her SUV. She just happened to pull in to the parking lot on a Sunday early evening and even though they were closed, Mitch was there and helped her figure out the problem. He got it in for repair on Monday for a very reasonable price. I can't thank him enough for helping her out. I feel more confident now that if there are future issues while she is at school, he will be there to help!
We were on the turnpike when a sensor went out on our truck and put it in reduced-power mode. We were able to drive to Automotive Specialists where Mitch began to diagnose the problem. He determined that it was a throttle sensor, which he was able to replace and get us back on the road as quick as possible. He took the time to explain the problem and solution. The staff was very friendly and efficient. We will bring our truck back for regular maintenance. It's worth the drive to El Dorado!
