New Tires & Tire Services
You need new tires, and you have questions. What type of tire do I really need? What do terms like “all-season” and “all-terrain” really mean? What are my financing options?
Midas brings simplicity to tire buying (and owning). We’re here to help you with tire selection, financing, professional installation, and preventive maintenance for a long tire life. We even check your tire pressure and tread wear as part of every Midas Closer Look Vehicle Check™1, no matter what auto repair or maintenance service brings you to Midas.
Seasonal Tires - Change these tires twice a year for the best possible tire performance in summer and winter.
- Snow/Winter Tires: The strongest possible winter traction thanks to tread edges that bite into ice and snow, generous channels that send away slush -- and rubber that stays supple at lower temperatures than other tires.
- Summer Tires: Lower rolling resistance (and less fuel consumption) than winter, all-season, or off-road tires thanks to flatter treads (for more road contact) -- and rubber formulated for warmer temperatures.
Year-Round Tires - Not into changing tires along with the seasons? These versatile tires balance the features needed for summer and winter driving, on and off the roads.
- All-Season Tires: The tires that come with most passenger cars. Ideal for street driving in areas where winters are moderate (at worst).
- All-Terrain Tires: Multipurpose marvels that balance off-road traction and durability with comfortable, responsive highway handling. Ideal for a mixture of street driving and moderate off-road use.
- Mud Tires: Off-road specialists that power through mud, rocks, sand, dirt, and deep snow. Ideal for primarily off-road use (especially on challenging terrain).
- Low Profile Tires: Enhanced cornering and handling thanks to wide treads and short sidewalls.
- Performance Tires: Excellent traction, maneuverability and performance thanks to soft rubber compounds and stiff sidewalls.
Want the best snow traction in a year-round tire?
Look for the three-peak mountain snowflake (3PMSF) symbol on tires rated for severe snow service. To qualify, a tire must achieve 10% better traction over medium packed snow in manufacturer tests. The mountain snowflake symbol is found on most dedicated snow tires -- and select (year-round) all-terrain and all-season tires. Learn more about severe snow-rated tires.
- Midas Closer Look Vehicle Check™ also includes visual checks of brakes, battery, air filter, fluids, belts, and hoses. ↩
- Consumer Reports tested 50 models of winter tires after removing 50% of tread from the tires (resulting in testing tread depths of 5/32”-6/32”), and published the results on February 10, 2018.Read the test results here. ↩
