Andersen's Foreign Car Service, LTD: Buying A New Set Of All-Season Tires
Andersen's Foreign Car Service, LTD
When water builds up between your tires and the roads in Golden your car is at risk of hydroplaning. A new set of all-season tires are designed to deliver good comfort and handling on the highway, as well as reliable traction in the rain. In the past, most all-season tires featured symmetrical tread patterns, however, there are many new all-season tires that are now featuring an asymmetrical tread pattern. An asymmetrical pattern may offer higher speed and load ratings for your car or truck on wet roads.
Each all-season tire is constructed with a series of internal steel belts, polyester cord and rubber compounds that are designed for traction and performance in wet or dry conditions. All-season tires are not the best option for tough winter conditions such as snow and ice. However, a new set of all-season tires offers drivers in Golden confident performance during nice and moderate weather conditions.
All-season tires offer deep grooves and blades to channel water away from the tire. Grooves widen to help displace water on the road as your tire wears. As tire tread blades become more shallow with wear they will open up to become wider grooves. A dryer tire provides more grip and minimizes the possibility of hydroplaning in the rain.
All-season tires offer a smooth, quiet ride by adding an extra layer of super-shock absorbent layer of rubber between the tread layer and steel belts. The extra rubber cushion insulates against road vibration and impacts.
Affording a new set of all-season tires has never been easier at Andersen's Foreign Car Service, LTD. Ask us about offsetting the cost of a set of tires with manufacturer rebates. Most name-brand tire manufacturers offer rebates on all-season or touring tires. This helps keep the cost of a new set of tires low. Give us a call today at 303-278-8766 and ask us about the cost of a set of tires with a manufacturer rebate. One of our tire specialists will be happy to help.
Top name brand tires offer more than just rebates. Brands such as Bridgestone, Goodyear and Michelin feature all-season tires with the highest UTQG (Uniform Tire Quality Grading) rating. The rating system was developed by the US Department of Transportation, which helps consumers compare and rate tires on tread wear, traction, and temperature. The government mandates that tires have at least a 100 UTQG wear rating. Most sets of new all-season tires have a UTQG rating of 400, meaning that they will last four times longer than the government mandate.
However, please don't link tread wear grades with your projected tire mileage. Each new all-season tire also comes with a traction and temperature rating that represents the level of grip a tire has under normal road conditions. New tires have a grade of "A" for superior, "B" for good and "C" for average. Most name-brand all-season tires have a grade of "A".

Out 1995 850 GLT Volvo need an electrical part - no surprise - Volvo doesn't have it in stock and no Auto parts store has it either. Megan found one for us at a reasonable price and they installed it in a short time after it came in. Always pleased with the service from the Andersen's!!

So pleased to have found this place! They are easy to communicate with and I always get to talk to Kurt directly on the phone before I authorize any repairs. He will answer any questions, explain why something happened, what can wait and what can't and is very informative and respectful. We have been taking out 2007 Volvo XC70 here for about 2 years and recently had some brake problems with our 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee. I called several places and no one could get us in for months. My husband thought he'd ask Andersen's if they would look at our Jeep, even though it's not their specialty- they said yes and got us in for the next week. Jeep and Volvo are running smoothly, prices are fair- we are happy :)

I have been going to Andersen's for years, and there is a reason why: great service. It all started with my Volvo, and now they service my Mini. I would not trust anyone else with my cars. I knew I had the right place when Kurt knew all about the idiosyncrasies of my Volvo and my Mini's touchy computer system. Thank you Kurt, Karl and Megan and everyone else at Andersen's for the years of superb service you have given me.
