When it comes to vehicle maintenance how often do you think about your tires? Is it always the last thing on your mind, or the first?
For me, tires are really important. I drive A LOT, and I know that a good set of tires can make the difference in inclement weather. Coming from someone who has put over 180,000 miles on just one of our three vehicles in seven short years….you know that I value having a great set of wheels under my car.
Tire Buying Tips
While tire buying make not seem that exciting, Goodyear offers these tips for when you need to make your next tire purchase:
First, find the make and model of your vehicle. Your version/option might also be required, which is sometimes called your package level. Version/option can affect your tire size. It should be located on an information placard in your vehicle. In vehicles made after 2005, this placard will be located in the driver’s side door. In older vehicles, the placard may be located instead in the rear passenger doorjamb, fuel filler, glove box or center console, or engine compartment. For example, the version/option of a Honda Accord EX V6 is EX V6.
You can also use your tire size. Your tire size should be on your tire’s sidewall. It could also be listed on the placard inside your driver’s side door, or in your owner’s manual.
Factors like whether you drive around town, take frequent long trips, or drive on- or off-road should influence your decision, as tires are designed to serve a variety of functions, like street performance, long, comfortable rides, enduring treadwear, and enhanced grip.
Ask what’s included in the tire price, such as balancing, valve stem replacement, installation, Tire Pressure Monitor System service, and wheel alignment, which could be necessary if the previous tires wore unevenly.
Selecting optional Road Hazard Coverage will protect your tires from scrap metal or other items that could puncture them.
If you end up with more than one choice, our sales professionals can discuss the features and benefits of each tire with you, so you can make a confident decision.
