Spring weather in Michigan can bring a lot of fog and rain to your daily commute. With large amounts of rain, drivers should be aware of slippery roads. However, with the right routine tire care you can be confident that your vehicle will provide the traction you need to stay in control and safe on the road. After driving in rough winter weather and spring’s pothole-filled roads, your tires may also need to be replaced. If you think it’s time for a new set of wheels, stop by Graff Bay City’s Service Center and our tire experts will help you find a new set of tires that fit your budget from our complete tire selection!
