Car Maintenance Tips: Picking the Best Tires for Your Vehicle

One of the most important things you need to consider is what tires to buy for your car. Not only does the performance depend on it, but your safety rides on it. Of course, the right tire for your vehicle varies based on what kind of car you drive, the type of tire you require and your driving style. Considering these factors will help you to find the right fit for you.

When Should I Buy Tires?

The test to determine when you need tires is simply; just pull out a penny. Stick this shiny coin upside down in your tire tread. If you see the top of Abraham Lincoln’s head, you need a new set of tires. It’s best to start your shopping before then for maximum protection.

Buying Tires to Suit Your Needs

It’s no surprise that saving money is essential, but you also want safe and long-lasting tires. That’s what makes it difficult to figure out which kind to buy.

Most importantly, you want a set of tires that perform well while braking, handle the best and are resistant to hydroplaning. After that, you want to examine the wear, comfort, ride, rolling resistance and noise level.

Another thing to look at is the date of manufacture. You’ll find this on the sidewall. The number starts with DOT and then includes four digits. The first two indicate the week they were made while the last two signify the year. For example, 0817 would mean the eighth week of 2017. You want to buy the freshest tires you can because old tires deteriorate faster.
