When it comes to finding the right kind of tires for your specific vehicle, we first look at the manufacturer’s recommendations in the owner’s manual. Depending on your vehicle’s specific make and model, a certain kind of tire may be necessary to achieve optimal performance and efficiency. That means the wrong tire could cost you at the pump or decrease handling in corners or harsh conditions. Next, we want to take your specific driving purposes and habits into account. Drivers who need better control in harsh conditions like snow and ice may want to opt for a tire with deeper tread or spikes. Drivers looking to increase fuel efficiency may look into all-season tires designed with efficiency in mind. Our tires sales specialists will be there to walk you through the tire selection process to find the right choice for you!
