If you drive an SUV or crossover, there are a lot of choices out there when it comes to buying new tires. So many, in fact, that it can be hard to know where to even start.
A good starting point, however, would be to consider what you’re actually going to use your SUV for. Do you have a 4 x 4 SUV that you expect to take off-road often?

Prom night signifies the end of the school year and the last few weeks before summer. It’s a night that students look forward to their entire high school career. From the gowns and tuxes to the corsages and photos, students go above and beyond to look their best, thinking of every last detail to make the night memorable. But, is preparing for everything really possible?
According to MADD, Mothers Against Drunk Driving, teen alcohol use kills 4,700 people each year and 90% of teens believe their peers are more likely to drink and drive on prom night.
While it may take a backseat to all of the glam around the night’s festivities, knowing how to stay safe on the roads can make the difference between a night you never want to forget and a tragedy that will forever stay in your mind.

You know it’s gonna be cold soon…and you know that winters in Pennsylvania can be tough. Is your car up to it? Here’s a quick list of things to check before the snow flies.
Tires: All-season tires are a jack of all trades, master of none. If you expect more than an inch or two of snow, it can be a good idea to invest in winter tires. Winter tires feature a more aggressive tread pattern to dig into snow and slush (some are even pre-drilled to make it easy to install metal studs). They also use a softer tread formulation that stays flexible in extreme cold for traction.
Wipers: Even good windshield wipers only last about a year before the sun’s UV rays and wear take their toll on them. If your wipers are dried-out, cracked, chipped or are lo ...[more]
