Routine Wheel Alignment & Tire Rotation in Anchorage
Your tires are the only physical connection between your car and the road. Your tires can’t just be great quality, because that’s only one factor. They also need proper maintenance with regular Volkswagen tire service. Tire pressure dissipates over time and can lead to uneven tread wear, not only shortening your tires’ lifespan, dangerous traction issues, especially in extreme weather conditions. In addition to this, improper installation of your tires can lead to unbalanced wheel rotation and instability while driving.

Volkswagen Winter Tires
If you live in an area where the winter temperature averages below 45 degrees, like the Anchorage, Alaska area, then you’re going to need winter tires on your car, SUV, etc.
Winter tires don’t behave like all-season tires, and their distinct differences can be the difference between stopping safely and skidding out in an emergency braking situation. Winter tires have special winter-grade rubber designed specifically to increase traction, handling and braking in cold weather conditions including ice and snow.
One of the most common questions we are asked at Kendall Volkswagen of Anchorage come the winter season is, “How many winter tires should I get?” Having four winter tires on the road is not just recommended, it’s necessary.
In RWD and FWD vehicles, drivers think that the two drive wheels are the only important factors when changing to winter tires and the other two tires are just along for the ride. This mindset is outdated and no longer relevant because the design and composition of modern winter tires have changed greatly. Today’s winter tires are made of different composites and designs that increase winter weather traction by 25 to 50 percent more than older tires. The rubber used on modern winter tires also helps adapt your driving experience toward dry and wet road conditions.
Using just two winter tires on a vehicle results in uneven traction that can have serious handling consequences. Using four winter tires ensures optimal traction and control for your car or SUV. Please always use four winter tires, to ensure you and your safety and the safety of others on the road.
