At best, being limited by winter weather is inconvenient, at worst, it can be extremely dangerous. At Vanderhyde Ford, we offer the winter services that allow you to stay safe this winter.

One of the first and most important aspects of your vehicle that we service is your tires. We check tire tread depth and wear to make sure that your winter tires are in good enough condition to provide you with enough traction on ice and snow. If you don’t have winter tires already, check out our selection of tires that we offer.

Winter tires are essential for sub-zero weather and slippery winter conditions. Snow tires are composed of a special freezing-resistant rubber that allows the tires to maintain their flexibility and grip. They also are designed with a tread pattern that avoids snow buildup and sipes for ice and snow.
