Tire Siping

Tire Siping in Anchorage, AK

When you’re in the market for tires, there can be a lot to consider. There’s the obvious, like mileage rating, and price, then there might be other factors, such as seasonality, and even brand. One thing that may never cross your mind when selecting tires is something called tire siping.

Research has shown that a vehicle’s most effective braking power occurs immediately before losing traction. Tire siping gives your existing tire tread a little bit of a helping hand to allow for longer maximum brake power.

Drivers in Anchorage, Eagle River, or Wasilla, AK, and the surrounding areas trust the tire experts at Baltazar’s Tire Shop to assist with any tire needs. Since 2000, we’ve been singing the praises of tire siping. Give us a call at (907) 332-3893 with any questions.

What is Tire Siping, anyway?

Many passenger and light truck tires utilize something called siping. Tire siping involves cutting slices across the tire tread after the tire is manufactured to improve traction and open up grip.

Different terrains call for different types of siping. Some are designed to remove water from the tire tread, while other are specifically designed to grip snow and ice. These tough Alaska are a whole other animal, and you need the toughest traction available. Siping will not affect the performance of your tires in any way.
