Why did I have a hard time driving in the snow? If your tires look like the included picture that is probably why. Without tread the tires do not have anything to grip with in the snow and slush of winter driving. When you see to wear bars even with the the tread bars the useful life of the tire is over. In the rain a tire in this condition can actually hydro-plane as the sipes that squeeze water out are now missing. Here at Framerite Auto Repair we can replace your tires and align the suspension for the best handling and tire wear.
