When purchasing tires, there are many options available to consumers. For this reason, it is very important that consumers ask retailers about the appropriate size and type of tire that should go on their vehicle. For example, there are a variety of tire types.
• There are All-Season tires that are for a variety of road conditions and have some capabilities in snow and mud conditions.
• Winter tires are much more effective in deep snow than All-Season tires.
• Some people in locations where it regularly snows actually alternate tire types depending on the season.
• Summer tires are those that perform better in warm weather and are not designed to operate in temperatures below freezing.
• All-Terrain tires are typically used on trucks or SUVs that have 4-wheel-drive capabilities. This type of tires works well on both on- and off-road driving.
So be prepared to discuss with your retailer how, where and when you will be using the tires that you plan to purchase for your vehicle.
Additionally, it is very important to discuss the size tire that will be used on your vehicle. Vehicles come with a recommended tire size and tire pressure sticker that is typically mounted inside the door seal on the driver’s side. This sticker will provide consumers and the retailer with the manufacturer’s recommended tire size and recommended tire pressure for tires used on the particular vehicle. Retailers should be familiar with the location of this information and be prepared to discuss with consumers.
These are just a few tips that can assist consumers and retailers in making sure that the proper size and type tires are fitted on any given vehicle.
