Siping is a service your Tire Factory technician may recommend to increase tire traction, extend tire life, and help you enjoy a more comfortable ride. It’s done by placing your tires (new or used) on a machine that makes precise micro-cuts across the tread surface. The result is a better grip in slippery or wet conditions, better grip during acceleration, and better traction during braking. Siping also helps reduce heat build-up, which can extend the life of your tires. If you have questions about Siping, your Tire Factory technician will be happy to explain how this service could benefit you.
