If there’s one thing most people can agree on, it’s that the process of buying a car can be a huge headache filled with unfamiliar terminology, untrustworthy sales staff, and pressure to commit quickly to a sale.

PRO AUTO SPONSORED CAR TAKES HOME SUPER SERIES CHAMPIONSHIPS!

PRO AUTO SPONSORED CAR TAKES HOME SUPER SERIES CHAMPIONSHIPS!

We’re excited to announce that Pro Auto’s sponsored car recently took home the NHRA (National Hot Rod Association) Super Series Championships! Driven by Ted Romero, the 1996 Chevy Camaro has a LT1 350 engine and produces over 500 horsepower. Check out some of the photos from the race below. Romero got lucky in the second and third round with his opponent breaking on the starting line in the 2nd and a bye in the third. That allowed him to get the car ironed out a little more and figure out his dial. Things started to fall into place after qualifying. There was a large holeshot in the final and it would have run right on the dial in the final. It turned out to be a great day. Super Serie ... read more

WINTER TIRES AND WHY THEY MATTER

WINTER TIRES AND WHY THEY MATTER

The Denver metro area has already seen its first snowfall, which means that areas in the mountains are well on their way to winter. We often think that the winters are relatively mild in the city, which is why it makes such a popular destination for people to move to. What many people don’t realize, however, is that, mild or not, winter still brings snow, and all it takes is one wrong tire on one wrong patch of snow to cause an accident. Sometimes the difference between an accident and a smooth trip is how alert and careful the driver is, but during the winter months, snow tires can give you a certain advantage, because oftentimes accidents happen to the most cautious of drivers. Here’s what you need to know. What Are Snow Tires? Snow tires, simply put, are not all-season tires. They have deeper grooves to provide greater traction. They’re thicker.
