Here are a few simple tire tips to keep you safe on the road…

Rotate Every 3,000-5,000 MilesTire Tread Comparison MST Tire Center or Mill Street Tire
Because your front tires bear so much burden, you should rotate your tires from front-to-rear several times during their life cycle.

This lets all four tires wear evenly, which can:

  • Increase gas mileage
  • Improve ride comfort
  • Give you maximum life for each tire
  • Improve handling during sudden stops or turns

Watch Your Pressure
Having your tires even slightly over inflated or slightly under inflated can:

  • Increase your chance of a flat or blowout
  • Prevent you from stopping in time
  • Severely shorten the life of your tires.
    You’ll end up buying new tires earlier
    than you expected.
  • Lower your gas mileage

Proper Tire Care Will:

  • Improve tire performance
  • Increase tire life
  • Improve ride smoothness
  • Increase your safety

We suggest rotating your tires every 5,000 miles, or every other oil change. Even better, save time and hassle by scheduling a tire rotation WITH your oil change at any of our 5 Sierra Car Care/MST Tire Centers.

Laurie Yarborough
President, Mill Street Tire Center

“I like solving car problems for customers. Especially when they come in feeling like it’s the end of the road and we fix their problem easily and get them back on the road faster than they expected. I also keep every part of the store clean, so you feel comfortable leaving your car with us. The way I see it, we’re like doctors for your car. You wouldn’t trust a doctor with a messy exam room, would you? Well, I believe you shouldn’t trust a messy mechanic either.” 

Gas for goodness

Every Wednesday in September, we’ll make a donation for every gallon of gas sold from our Sierra Car Care/MST Tire Centers. And we’ll donate $1.00 per tire sold each Saturday at MST Tire Center on Mill Street. All of September’s donations will support Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northern Nevada.

When you donate to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northern Nevada, you join our cause to support children in our community. It’s not just a donation; it’s an

Big Brothers Big Sisters

investment in a child’s future. Mentoring impacts children’s educational and social skills and sets them on a positive path for life. Be part of something big.

So when you need gas or new tires, you can also support Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northern Nevada by visiting any of our 5 locations on Wednesdays for gas and Saturdays for tires.

Customers often come in frustrated that their air conditioning:

  1. Starts off cool, but then the air warms up as it runs
  2. Is cool, but it isn’t as cold as it used to be

What to Do
If your A/C isn’t blowing frosty air like it used to, your system may have a leak or need a part replaced. Or you’re A/C may just need a recharge. To find out, bring your car into any of our 5 Sierra Car Care/MST Tire Centers for an air conditioning inspection.

Complete Air Conditioning Inspection
If your car’s A/C isn’t keeping you cool enough, schedule an air conditioning inspection at one of our service stations. We will:

  • Measure output temperature
  • Visually inspect for leaks on hoses, lines, and seals
  • Inspect drive belts and pulleys
  • Check system pressure
  • Inspect condenser function
  • Test compressor function

Everything you need to keep you cool on the road.

Yours truly,
Laurie Yarborough
