What are the basics?

There is no way to tell exactly how long a tire lasts. The lifespan and mileage of a tire depends of a combination of factors: its design, the driver’s habits, the climate, the road conditions and the care that’s put into the tires.

Keep five years in mind for your tires

After five years or more in use, your tires should be thoroughly inspected at least once per year by a professional. The “penny test” can be used to gauge the tire tread wear.

Ten years is a maximum for tires

If the tires haven’t been replaced 10 years after their date of manufacture, as a precaution, it is highly recommended that you replace them with new tires. Even if they appear to be in usable condition and have not worn down to the tread wear indicator. This applies to spare tires as well.

Proper tire care expands a tire’s lifespan

You can increase your tire’s longevity by maintaining the correct air pressure, performing regular tire rotations and vehicle maintenance.

For original equipment: follow the vehicle manufacturer’s tire replacement recommendations.

How to check the manufacturing date on your tires

Look for the DOT number on your sidewall.

Happy Couple Car

Valentine’s Day can mean more than just chocolates and flowers. How about a gift that lasts and shows that special someone you really care?

For decades car’s have symbolized the means by which to get away

In the old days, we used to ride off into the sunset on horseback, romanticized by westerns. Not since the first car was invented.

Over time, what it meant to own a vehicle really has shaped the future we live in today. The vehicle production industry alongside the oil industry stands to shape the future of tomorrow as well.

Although cars and trucks are still compared to horses, the average vehicle is way more powerful now. Even so, since we have replaced vehicles with horses – it doesn’t stop the avid car lover from treating their ride like it’s alive and has feelings.

Embrace that car love.

Just MarriedWhen celebrating we decorate our car so that it draws attention to our big day, whether it be our wedding day, game day, birthday, graduation, etc. In short, we love our cars and the freedom they represent.

We also understand that transportation is necessary in one form or another to achieve our goals and ambitions.

For the love of your car: Give the gift of travel

What do you give that special someone when you know in the back of your mind that flowers won’t last, sweets are unhealthy and teddy bears are for children?

This year, instead of your usual Valentine’s Day gift, why not try new brakes or tires – to really say I love you? This year buy something that will help your loved one get where they need to go.

Gas for Goodness: Supporting Our Communitysparks strong Logo
Every Wednesday in November, we’ll make a ($.01) penny donation to a local charity 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 donations in November will support SPARKS STRONG to benefit the victims of the Sparks Middle School shooting on October 21, 2013.

The purpose of this charity is to help the families affected by the middles school shooting in Sparks, who may not be in a position to pay for their hospital bills themselves. As a community we should come together to help these families that have been impacted by this horrific event.

Sierra Car Care and MST Tire Center will also be donating some vehicle services and gas cards to benefit the charity fundraiser.

Also, donation bins will be available for SPARKS STRONG at our 5 locations around the Reno/Sparks area to benefit the families affected.

An account has been setup at Wells Fargo for the money donations. Go to any Wells Fargo and ask to donate to SPARKS STRONG.

So when you need gas or new tires, you can also support our local SPARKS STRONG by visiting any of our 5 locations on Wednesdays for gas and Saturdays for tires (Mill Street location only).

Sierra Car Care / MST Tire Center

We would like to formally say goodbye to the name Mill Street Tire and say hello to MST Tire Center. They are one-in-the-same tire warehouse, but the name changed when the new owner’s Steve & Laurie Yarborough added the company to the Sierra Car Care service station family.

Sierra Car Care and MST Tire Center are now serving the greater Reno-Sparks area with 5 full service auto repair and tire stores. This transition allowed for an opportunity to improve value and service to customers in the area.MST Tire Center

You may still see Mill Street Tire on the wall (on-location), the change is slow. The goal is to let you know the name has changed, but the same great service and workmanship are still here. So come on down and see us at MST Tire Center at 3180 Mill Street in Reno, NV.

All web related news, articles, e-blasts, posts, etc. will refer to MST Tire Center from now on. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us here.

Each month we will name a new charity for the proceeds to help. You can help these charities too, just by purchasing from Sierra Car Care and MST Tire Center.

We call it “Gas for Goodness.” All donations in April will support the Solace Tree. Every Wednesday, we’ll make a donation from the pump 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.

So Pump-it-Up on Wednesdays at your local Sierra Car Care/MST Tire Centers, or get new tires on Saturdays from the Mill Street location (only), and you can help to make a difference. A difference in our community.

MORE ABOUT THE SOLACE TREE, OUR LOCAL CHARITY OF THE MONTH:
The mission of the Solace Tree is that all children, teens and their family members have the freedom to express their feelings associated with death in a safe and loving environment. Our peer support programs and educational opportunities help children and teens learn to cope and adjust to the changes in their lives.

In 2002, while teaching at an elementary school and finishing his Masters degree in school counseling, Emilio Parga discovered he had cancer. He was also assisting students who had lost parents to suicide, accidental death and cancer. In his attempt to provide these children with emotional support, he realized that many kids and teenagers in Northern Nevada had lost a parent, sibling or caregiver throughout the year, and that there were no grief support programs for them. Knowing all too well a child or teen’s need for support when a family member or caregiver dies, Emilio decided there was no time to wait and he created the Solace Tree in 2004.
