Make Sure Your Tires Are Road-Trip Ready

Make Sure Your Tires Are Road-Trip ReadyMemorial Day marks the unofficial start of summer – which means vacations for many Americans.

If a road trip is part of your summer plans, make sure your tires are ready before you start packing up the car. Not only is driving on tires with adequate tread much more safe for you, your passengers and others on the road around you, taking care of your tires before you leave will likely save you money and headaches if any problems arise while you’re out of town.

Typically, tire tread above 2/32 of an inch is considered to be adequate. However, some tests have shown that 4/32 is a much safer guideline to follow.

Former PG reporter Alison Griswold visited Champtires and talked with President Brad Rea.

Tires Have Never Looked So Good!

photo copyThere has been a lot going on behind the scenes at Champtires lately – all in an effort to deliver the highest quality used tires at the lowest prices to our customers.

While we’re not quite ready to unveil it all, we had Pittsburgh-based photographer Loren De Marco take photos at our West Mifflin warehouse recently.

We’re pretty sure it’s safe to say that used tires have never looked so good!

Thank you, Loren, for taking these great photos, and we can’t wait to share more with all of our customers soon.  If you’d like to see more, visit us on Facebook. (And don’t forget to friend request us, too!)

In the meantime, local customers – don’t worry about the Lebanon Road Bridge Replacement project. Champtires is still open. Traffic has not been much different than normal; detours are well-posted. And, yesterday, two lanes in both directions were open again.

If you have any questions about getting to our location, please call us at 412-462-3000.
