Recent Snow Brings A Rush For New Tires

Most of last week’s snow has melted, but in its place are scraps of metal damaging people’s tires.

Our News Partner KIMA Action News learned auto shops are seeing a spike of people coming in for new tires after the recent snow storms.

The reason? Pieces of metal from snow chains that come apart and puncturing tires.

Business we talked with say several people a day are coming to get their tires fixed.

“I see a lot of chains leftover from semi-trucks. I see a lot of debris from wrecks that hasn’t been cleaned up because you can’t see everything when it’s snowing out there,” said auto shop owner Les Henderson.

Mechanics say scraps of metal are found in places with heavy traffic like I-82.

We’re told even the smallest pieces can cause damage to your car.
