Our Tire Selection Guide: Choosing the Right Tires
These tips and tricks can help you choose the right tires for the road, but also for your vehicle. Many different brands and sizes are available, so knowing a bit more about all tires is a good thing.
Cheapest is Not Always Best
While some only go for the more affordable, off-brand types of tires because that is what they can afford, chances are that they do not have enough grip on the road and they do not last as long. If you can splurge a little, or start saving now then choosing a high-end brand of tires can be the right tires for your vehicle because they handle better and last longer.
Know the Traction Rating
When choosing a tire, you need to know the traction rating. The tread on the tire can tell all. If you want thicker, better holding tires then go with a higher traction rating. Usually, tires without any tread on them are for street racing so if you’re not racing something, then you better stick to something that is going to grip the road and keep you on it.
Load Capacity Ratings Matter
Don’t overlook this, since you want something that can hold the weight of the vehicle and not pop while driving down the road. Usually, the larger the tire, the more weight they can hold. Reading this information, and making sure to get the right size and load capacity are essential. If the tires are not able to carry the weight, they are not going to last long.
All Season or Winter Tires
When choosing the right tires for your vehicle, make sure to go with the right ones for the season. Even if the winter tires are on sale in the spring time, you’re not going to want to put them on your vehicle during this time. Purchasing them for the winter might be ideal. Purchase for the season you’re in, no matter the price or ratings.
