It’s so easy to get bogged down by the costs and options of tires these days, but buying new tires shouldn’t be a headache. Learn how to maintain and check tire tread so you can properly budget for the expense. Once you have a budget, you can then shop around town to find the best tire prices.
To help you further, below are 4 things you should prioritize when buying tires:
- Safety – New tires keep drivers safe. Driving on worn tires is an accident waiting to happen, so when it comes time to buy new tires make sure you get tires that will get you and your passengers safely where you need to go.
- Tire Type – An ideal tire will suit your driving needs, whether you live here in central Missouri, Colorado or California. Tires normally advertise as being suited for summer, all-season, or winter. Beyond that, tires can specialize in performance types, such as off-road, highway, high-mileage, etc.
- Longevity – Because buying new tires can take such a toll on your bank account, it’s important to find tires that will last. Finding tires with good tread life may cost in the short term, but pay off in the long term.
- Warranty and Added Services – Tires usually come with a tread life warranty. These warranties guarantee a tire’s lifespan under normal driving conditions and usually last between 30,000-100,000 miles. To add to a driver’s peace of mind, tire shops may add service warranties for an added cost. These warranties can include free tire rotation, repair, and other services during the life of your tires.
Don’t let needing new tires get you down. Like taxes, it’s an inevitable expense.
