When You Need Good Tires Go To Goodyear Auto Service

73

I made it through winter with my treadless tires, thank goodness. Here it is spring already and I know I’ll be parking the truck and riding the bike for a while. But, I really needed to get new tires.  I can’t tell you how many times I got into my truck this past winter and prayed that I didn’t get a flat tire and end up stranded in a snow drift. Changing a tire in the freezing weather isn’t my idea of a good time. There is probably a hundred things that could go wrong being out on slippery back country roads. There’s no place to pull over and the jack could easily slip on the ice or wet roads. Worse yet, an out of control car could slam into me while I’m trying to change my tire. I must have asked myself a hundred times, “why didn’t I just buy some tires last Fall?” 

And of course, when I think of new tires, I think of my good friends over at Goodyear Auto Service. I’ve been getting my tires there for decades. So, I finally, I made an appointment to get new tires on my truck. While this winter may be over, we all know that next winter is just months away and I don’t want to worry again when the next snow falls.

 

Do you know what April is? It’s National Car Care Month! I didn’t know that. Anyways, it doesn’t take a Rocket Scientist to figure out what keeps your car on the road, … it’s tires! And when I think of tires, I always think of Goodyear! I wonder why that is? Hmmm… Whether you drive a pick-up or a race car; a semi or an SUV; heavy equipment or a lawn tractor; a bicycle or an airplane, guess what? You’re going to need tires. And here’s something else you might not know, … Goodyear Tires has you covered for all of these items and more. I decided to google Goodyear to see why it’s so famous and now I know why. You should definitely read the History of Goodyear Tires. Tt describes Goodyear’s beginnings to present, but more importantly, the trials and tribulations of the man who invented the rubber tires that most of us take for granted today. Truly an inspirational story!

Okay, back to MY story…

Call it cabin fever or stir-crazy (maybe stir-fry crazy), but I always do more traveling in the Spring and Summer. That’s probably why April is National Car Care Month. They know we’re going to be traveling more, so they want to get people thinking about getting their vehicles ready for the road.

Goodyear Auto Service is having a #SpringCarCare Event going on right now! Woo Hoo! Just what the Car Doctor ordered! From now through April 13 you will receive complimentary tire tread checks, an instant $15 off a set of four Goodyear, Dunlop or Kelly tires, and free wiper blades when purchasing a set of tires. Oh yeah, winter is always rough on my wiper blades too! It’s cool that they thought to include them as well. If you want to learn more about the “Spring Car Care Event”, and where to find a Goodyear Auto Service near you, visit GoodyearAutoService.com.

I made my appointment by phone. The guy I talked to was very helpful and got me an appointment on the day and time I needed it done. They didn’t have the exact tires I wanted at their service center but assured me that they would have them shipped to their place prior to my appointment, no problem. Later something came up and I had to re-schedule my appointment and once again, they got me an appointment on the day and time I needed it. 

I guess I’m a creature of habit. I live by the beat of my own drummer and I don’t like interruptions in my daily life, so I appreciate the fact that they got me in and back on the road without too much of a wait. From start to finish I got all four tires mounted, balanced and put back on the truck in about an hour’s time. They even installed my FREE wiper blades for me (part of the #SpringCarCare Event”). I made a short video when I went to the Goodyear Service Center. Here it is:

 

I drove home feeling safe on the road. It’s always a good feeling to know that you and your loved ones are going to get in the car and make it to your destination on a good set of tires. And you know, over time my vehicle had developed a little shimmy in the steering wheel that I hadn’t really noticed until it was gone. The new wheels took all of the vibration out. Guess I really did need tires. Thanks, Goodyear!

Before I go, I’d like to say something about the tires. Goodyear has been around for a long time (and with Good reason), they make good tires and they stand behind their product. Not only do they have the standard limited lifetime warranty, but they come with Lifetime balance, lifetime Rotation, and free alignment check on your vehicle.

I also did not not know that April as National Car Care Month. Tires are such an important part of my car. I live where we get a lot of snow and icy roads so tires are definitely important.

If it’s one thing I learned years ago, it’s to keep a good set of tires on your car. Buying retread tires might be cheap but do not last.

I can totally relate to your story because I was in the same boat! When I did a little sliding in the rain I had to get it done. Of course now my husband’s work truck needs tires but we had to put it off for a minute too. Definitely going to check out goodyear, that’s a great deal they have going on! Thanks for sharing!

My step-father is in the same predicament. The tires on his truck are bad & it’s been raining a lot. My mom was visiting me out of town this past weekend and they needed to work out rides for my step-father, because my mother didnt think it would be safe for him to drive his truck in the rain with the bad tires. Tires are expensive!

Stared hard at the pic on the blog giveaway and was wondering how you took a picture of my truck! Only difference is my truck came with Cooper tires. I will be ready for new tires, even on the camper.
Thanks for reminding us to care for our cars this spring.

Thats some. I know bad but a lot of the time. n idk what needs to be done (which is all the time), I usually t do nothing even though i now there’s probably something should be at. I think this would help me combat that tendency.
