Choosing the right tires for your ride isn't easy - and may well be quite a bit more important than you think. Whether it's all-season tires, truck tires or highway tread, plus sizing tires or choosing snow tires, each tire performs in a specific way, and your choice will determine whether you maximize the enjoyment and longevity of your ride.
Consider these criteria in helping to determine what tire you should purchase. For instance, if you drive a sedan year-round on highways and experience very little winter weather, shop for a long lasting all-season tire that won't have an aggressive tread design. A tire of this nature delivers good traction in moderate weather, lasts 40 to 50 thousand miles (providing the alignments and rotations are performed), and offers a relatively quiet ride.
