All-season radial tires will con
tribute to safe driving this winter,
say three local tire experts.
Today's drivers have a take
care of your car attitude," which
keeps them more aware of fac
tors such as year-round driving.
This is one reason for the popu
larity of all-season tires, said Kob
Hartung of Que Place Standard,
1648 Q St.
Dismounting and mounting
tires at every season change
causes extra damage and wear to
the tires, Hartung said. All-season
tires should rotate regularly so
the vehicle is ready to drive in the
winter, spring, summer and fall.
Hartung said 90 percent of
Standard's sales are radials, the
majority of which are all-season.
Although all-season tires are
satisfying the largest percentage
of winter driving needs, there still
are some "die-hards" who have
used regular M&S tires (radial or
bias-ply) for years. Some people
depend on them and will con
tinue using them, said Reggie
Moller of Walker Tire, Ninth and
The regular M&S tires offer
excellent traction in snow and
mud. The disadvantage of M&S
tires, Moller said, is that because
of their tread design, they should
only be used during the winter
months, then rmoved for summer
driving. They can be used for
summer driving Moller said but
they will suffer excessive wear,
and that is costly.
Moller generally recommends
adding some weight in the trunk
of rear-wheel drive vehicles. Con
crete blocks or used inner tubes
filled with sand will add stability
and help prevent skidding, he
Radial snow tires with studs
give excellent traction, especially
on ice, said Jeff Ficken, of Capitol
Tire Store, 2400 0 St. Tire stud
ding costs $8.95 per tire.
Ficken said alternative to snow

tires is tire chains, which would
include both the standard flat
and the new radial tire chains
On icy city streets, chains offer
exceptional traction, he said
However, they limit one's top driv
ing speed to about 35 mph. Ficken
said tire chains are good for pick
ups because of their light rear
ends. All three tire experts said if
you're planning on changing to
mud and snow tires this winter
the best time is now rather than
the day of the first major snow
storm. Usually on that day, every
tire dealer in Lincoln is swamped
and waiting times can be as lone
as four hours.
Tire prices at the three outlets
ranged from $35 to $75 per tire
depending on brand, size and
tread design. Radial tire chains
can cost between $35 and $55
again depending on size. '
to shrink lines
Along with the fresh start of a
new semester comes the old
drudgery of waiting in line. In an?
attempt to decrease the amount
of time students will have to spend !
in line next semester, the Office?
of Scholarships and Financial Aids
has changed disbursement dates!
for cash advances and book!
Chris Vaage, assistant director
of financial aid, said advances
and vouchers are like getting tut
tion refunds early. They are given I
to students who have grant or I
scholarship money in excess of
their tuition costs.
New disbursements are Jan. 14
to 16, 1985, as follows:
Jan. 14, 4 to 10 p.m.; Jan. 15, 8
a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Regency Suite
at the Nebraska Union.
Jan. 1 6, 8:30 to 1 1 :30 a.m. and 1
to 4 p.m. at the Office of Scholar
ships and Financial Aids, 113
Cash advances received Jan.
14 may be cashed in the Bursar's
Office from Jan. 15 to Jan. 18.
Students will not be able to cash
advances received Jan. 15 until
Jan 16, but they will be able to
cash them through Jan. 21.
Book vouchers can be cashed
any day at the University Book
store in the Nebraska Union.
The disbursement times and loca
tions were changed to eliminate
congestioruwith dropadd, V&age
said. The office of Scholarships
and Financial Aids also is adding
more personnel to hand out
vouchers and advances so the
lines move quicker, she said.
Staggering the days students
can cash vouchers should cut
down the lines at the Bursar's
Office, Vaage said.
The program services 800 to
000 students, with $50,000 avail
able for cash advances, Vaage
