Ready to outfit your ride with some new tires but overwhelmed with all the options? Here are the key considerations to ensure your choice truly excels when the rubber meets the road.
Size is important.
Even the most expensive tires won’t be any good if they don’t fit your vehicle. Be sure to only look for appropriately sized tires for your vehicle. How? Locate the tire size on your tire’s sidewall or the driver’s door placard along with the tire pressure.
Know which type you want.
The type of tire you need is based on the type of vehicle you have, your usage of the vehicle and your geographic location.
Passenger tires (“P” prefix on the tire size) vs. Light truck (“LT” prefix on the tire size.)
