Saving money is a common goal for many, especially when it comes to your car. However, trying to save money by purchasing cheap tires is not a good idea. Quality should come before price when buying new tires every time.


Why Buying Cheap Tires Is Never a Good Idea

If you make a poor choice when it comes to purchasing tires, it will be something you regret for the next three to five years. Cheap tires not only wear out faster than higher quality choices, but they can also annoy you with a horrible whining noise while you are driving. Cheap tires can also make your vehicle difficult to handle.

Benefits of Buying Better Tires

Choosing the best tires for your vehicle can be a daunting task for some. However, think about them like you do your shoes. Experience tells us paying more for shoes gives us a higher quality product, which tends to last a lot longer and feel a lot better on our feet. Even though tires may cost your pocketbook a little more, you’ll have more safety features, a higher quality product and they will last longer.

Replacing Old Tires

It can be difficult to determine when tires need replacing. Of course, car owners want tires to last as long as possible, but learning how to know when it’s time to replace your tires is important. These signs can indicate the need to buy new tires:

  • Visible signs of wear and tear
  • Having a flat tire
  • A tire runs low on air constantly
  • Tread that is worn down
  • Feeling a tire is “not right” when driving

Car tires on the latest vehicles have specially colored bars inside the tread indicating when they have become worn down too far. This can make it easy to know when they need to be replaced.


Knowing What Tires to Purchase

One of the best indicators of a tire’s quality is its tread life. In most cases, a tire’s price will typically reflect a tire’s quality, but this is not always true. Tires have ratings to help car owners select the right one for their vehicles. For instance, if you drive on the expressway or highway at speeds of 75 to 80 mph, you want to purchase tires with a high speed rating. For drivers who drive in inclement weather for large portions of the year, a solid all-weather or year-round tire is in order.

Be Familiar with Tire’s Codes

It may seem to the casual observer there are random letters and numbers along the top of tires. These do have significance since they indicate the size of the tire. The code tells the mechanic if the tire is a passenger tire, how wide the tire is, the ratio of the tire’s height to width, if it is a radial tire and the diameter of the wheel. These pieces of information are essential for getting the right tire matched with a vehicle.
