Marque Motors: Buying A New Set Of All-Season Tires

Marque Motors

When water builds up between your tires and the roads in Portland 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 Portland 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 Marque Motors. 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 503-293-5386 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".

Not sure which set of tires is best for your car? Stop by our location at 7310 S Macadam Ave or call us at 503-293-5386 and let one of our tire experts help you decide which tire is best for your car.

Marque Motors was recommended to me by several of my 'German Sport car owning' friends. Kurt was very generous with his time to help me understand the differences of the cars that I am researching to purchase (Porsche vs. Audi). He gave me some excellent pointers that I would not have thought about before pursuing a purchase. I will definitely bring the car to Marque for a full pre-purchase inspection when I identify it, and any service and repairs as well. I believe they are an excellent resource!

I've taken a number of Porsches to Kurt over the past 15 years or so. They do careful work, give great advice, and have been very reasonably priced.

I was recommended Marque Motors for a pre-purchase inspection on a Porsche Boxster in Portland. I don't live in the area and hadn't actually seen the car myself, so the inspection was really important to me. Kurt was great and gave me all the information I needed to make an informed purchase, taking time to explain the report details over the phone and answering any questions I had. The inspection also cost me less than I was originally quoted which was nice! If I was anywhere near the area, I'd definitely be going back to Marque Motors for any work my car might need in the future.

We have been doing business with Marque Motors for a long time, this is a quality shop. All my customers that drive Porsches, BMWs, and Audis take their cars here and have nothing but GREAT things to say about their work. Kurt has a very good reputation and his staff knows what they are doing. Marque Motors is a full-service repair facility specializing in Porsche, Audi, BMW, MINI and Volkswagen. NOTE: SERVICE & REPAIR FACILITY SPECIALIST ! Service and Repair Shops that have been around a while are getting harder to find, this is one of the good ones. We are in the industry and my customers say this is a great shop, and I agree.

Kurt and crew always have done what they say, when and for the amount agreed to. They serviced our 1999 Audi A4 for the last 13 years, and I would use them again, and recommend them highly.
