Nobody ever asks for car tires for Christmas. You might ask for a full luxury vehicle, even though you probably will not get one, but tires? In reality, this is actually a very sound, very sensible gift request, and here is why.
All-Season Radials and Snow Tires Will Keep You Alive
Receiving the gift of car tires is like receiving the gift of life. It sounds like quite a stretch, but hear this out. All-season radials can be driven on snow, ice, and through the wettest, slickest of roads. Snow tires will keep your vehicle on the road no matter how much snow and ice is present. Staying on the road means that you are not sliding into ditches, hitting trees, or worst of all, hitting other cars, drivers, and their passengers. Good tires for winter driving prevent all of the above, thus preserving your life and the lives of others. What a good and thoughtful gift that keeps on giving.
Tires Often Cost What Most People Spend on a New TV or Electronic Device at Christmas Time
Face it; you can only own so many TVs, laptops, tablets, phones, surround sound systems, and stereo systems before it just becomes superfluous. Asking for tires is not only a unique gift request, but four new tires costs about the same or less than a flat screen HD Smart TV. If a family member is going to spend that much on you anyway, why not get something you can really use that will last a long time and keep you and your passengers safe while on the road?
When You Forget to Replace Your Tires or You Cannot Afford It, Someone Else Could Do It for You
Usually, some drivers do not bother to replace a tire (much less four tires!) until the tire either goes flat and refuses to stay inflated, or until it pops and flattens with a gaping hole. You really should replace your tires long before that, and if you cannot afford to replace them, someone else could. When you ask for tires for Christmas, either one person can buy them as a gift, or up to four people can each buy you a new tire. Even if you only get three tires, you could probably afford the last tire on your own and have a complete set. It is an easy gift option for family, and a great deal for you.
