The tire needs to match the season

Ok, were not going to lecture you about having bald tires. We know you already get that from other people. We are however going to take the time to talk to you about where you drive and the importance of which tires you should have. No, not all tires are created equal. You have summer tires, all season tires, snow tires, hobby tires and wide variety of others. There are a few factors that you need to take into consideration.

  • What tire can I afford?
  • What tire matches my driving style?
  • What tire matches with the season?
  • How do I want my ride to be?
  • What do I want them to look like on my car?

Next to your breaks, your tires are one of the most important safety features you have. Most dealerships typically offer great deals on tires as well as free inspection of a tires tread, pressure and general condition. Tires typically have a good life span on them and because it’s wear / drive related it is easy to tell when you have an issue. If your driving in the snow you need to have a tire with good bite that will grip the road, if you like to zip around town like speed racer, than you need something made for it. No matter the tire, make sure to keep an eye on the tread (You can put a coin in the tread to check wear) and make sure that you keep them in good shape.
