Tires are something that most of us rely on every day. But, despite how important they are, most people don’t think about them very much.
But, I do. After all, they are a vital part of your automobile! They are (literally!) where the rubber meets the road.
Of course, I know that taking care of a tire can seem daunting, and dealing with complex car jargon can be overwhelming. Luckily, since I have worked on cars nearly all of my life, I’ve learned a lot about what works (and what doesn’t!)
That’s part of why I built this blog. Because I want to share my experience and knowledge, as your Wilco tire & wheel expert, with you.
I want to give you the tips and tricks you need to get the longest life and greatest safety from your tires and wheels.
In this blog, I’ll talk about the importance of good tire “care and feeding.” We’ll look at the ins and outs of tire and wheel selection. Along the way, I’ll share the unique stories of cars, trucks, and the interesting people that I meet. We’ll laugh sometimes and learn a lot as we go.
Of course, the first story is about how I got here.
As a life-long car lover (and weekend mechanic) I’ve always been looking for a way to turn my passion into a living. Even as a kid the first part of a model car (and there were many!) that I would build would be the tires. In fact, one of my earliest memories is of following my dad through the rows of cars, a Hot Wheels tucked safely in my pocket.
I love cars. That’s why Tread Connection feels like a dream come true for me!
After all, I get to work on one of my favorite parts of the vehicle (wheels and tires) and make a living at it. Plus, it allows me to give people something precious: time back into their lives.
As I’ve gotten older I have realized that time is the most valuable commodity in life. Being able to simplify people’s lives, help them to be safe on the roads, and give them time to do what they want is a great gift.
My desire is that when someone becomes a Tread Connection customer, its for the long term. I want to be the face they think of when they think of tires. Just like many people have a primary care doctor or a favorite hairstylist I want to fill that role for our customers.
“I want to make people’s lives easier by providing a service that gives them flexibility and time back into their day. Making tires easier to get and doing the work on their schedule at their location accomplishes this”
