At Sierra Car Care and MST Tire Center we feel that community support is important for our city’s growth and success. Community support is the backbone of the city, and we try to maintain that strong support system. Good community support promotes business and job growth in a range of fields. That is why we are passionate about giving back to the community and people within our city.

Every month we donate a portion of sales from the pump at our Sierra Car Care locations, and a portion of new tire sales from MST Tire Center, to benefit a local charity. 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.

Here are some charities we were able to help in 2012:

Why switch to a winter or snow tire during the winter months?
Winter time presents the most challenging driving conditions drivers will face throughout the year. In addition to the reduced hours of daylight and colder temperatures, drivers must combat winter’s wet, slush, snow and ice-covered roads.Driving in Snow

Having the best tires for these conditions can mean the difference between a slightly stressful journey and ending up in a ditch. Due to the high elevation mountain ranges throughout the state that receive snow on a regular basis, winter in Nevada requires a more reliable tire.

Winter Tires
Winter tires are designed for winter road conditions, including ice, snow, and slush, as well as cold temperatures. Winter tires use softer compounds and dedicated tread patterns to provide better traction and performance once the roads are covered in snow. Benefits of winter tires:

  • They perform well on all winter road conditions, not just ice, as studded snow tires do
  • Deeper tread means that slush and snow fall out of the tire as it rotates, meaning less build-up
  • Noise levels are the same as for all-season tires

Snow Tires
Snow tires are often thought to have the best grip, so many drivers choose them in case they get caught in a slippery situation. This is not always the case. The grip of studded snow tires is best only on ice and when temperatures are near or below freezing. Benefits of studded snow tires:

  • They stop faster than any other type of tire on ice in freezing temperatures
  • Studded snow tires chew up the ice on the roads, creating friction that benefits drivers with non-studded tires

So with a snow tire, you still get chunky tread, a bit less stability on the highway and more noise from the studs, but you do get excellent snow traction. Nevada Law permits the use of studded snow tires from October 1st – April 30th each year.

Stop in for a FREE tire inspection and we’ll top off your windshield wiper fluid.

Gas for goodness

Veteran’s Day is November 11th. But we’re supporting our local vets all month long. Every Wednesday in November, 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, or $4.00 for every set of four on Saturdays at our Mill Street location. All of November’s donations will support Adopt a Vet Dental Program.

AAVD provides free dental care to Northern Nevada’s low-income veterans who are in critical need. Although most of these veterans fought bravely for us in the front lines, they do not qualify for treatment at the VA Dental Clinic.

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

We’re often asked, “What’s a coolant or antifreeze flush, and do I really need one?”

In short, yes. Here’s why… The name coolant/antifreeze is misleading because it does more than heat or cool your engine, and protect your engine from Checking the radiator antifreezefreezing in the winter.

Coolant/Antifreeze keeps your car running and prevents expensive bills like replacing radiators, head gaskets, and heater cores. These repairs could run you $400 -$1500. But a simple coolant flush done every 2-5 years can help you avoid those high bills.

How Coolant/Antifreeze Works
Today’s engines run hotter than older cars. And to meet government fuel mileage regulations, manufacturers make most engine parts out of aluminum. This includes your cooling system, radiator, and heater core.

The problem is, aluminum corrodes easily – especially when heated. So our hotter-running cars mixed with aluminum parts combine to break down your engine antifreeze faster.

Engine coolant/antifreeze contains inhibitors that protect metals from eroding and corroding. It does this by raising the boiling point and lowering the freezing point of your engine’s cooling system.

So just like the carton of milk in your refrigerator, engine coolant/antifreeze breaks down over time and needs changing.

When Should I Change My Coolant/Antifreeze?
If you want to avoid hefty car repair bills, change your coolant/antifreeze seasonally. It’s best to have a professional check your antifreeze and recommend the next change.

Yours truly,
Laurie Yarborough

Gas for goodnessWe Care Volunteers

Every Wednesday in October, 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 October’s donations will support We Care Volunteers.

At We Care Volunteers our goal is to feed those who cannot feed themselves, and to educate – through OUR volunteer service, those individuals who lack the life skills needed to make wise food choices and to help provide them with the skills to become better stewards of their health.

  • We envision communities comprised of
    individuals who have been trained to prepare
    meals that are nutritious– that enrich their
    bodies and nourish their souls.
  • We envision communities that are resourceful,
    self-sustaining, and that work towardsWe Care Volunteers Reno, NV
    everyone’s highest good.
  • We envision communities built around
    cooperation rather than competition.
