Shopping for Staggered Tires

Wednesday, September 11, 2013 by Ben Rooney

When you have standard or optional tire sizes on your vehicle, shopping for tires in your size is easy. Just shop by vehicle, and choose the appropriate option. You should always check your tire size to confirm that the tires on your car match what the computer thinks you should have, just to avoid any possible mistakes.

What if your vehicle is not in our database? You can easily shop by size. However, what if you have two different sizes on your vehicle? Maybe you installed custom wheels that require different front and rear tires but the computer thinks you should have all one size. Maybe you need custom sizes on a vehicle that came with staggered wheels. Whatever the case may be, having two sizes makes the search a bit more complex. You could pull up two different windows, one for the front size and one for the rear. Then you would have to check back and forth to see which ones come in both sizes and add up the price of two fronts and two rears to get the total cost. While this isn't impossible, it's more time consuming and there is more potential for a mistake somewhere along the way.

There is a handy trick to search for matching pairs of tires in two different sizes. When on our site, follow these easy steps:

  1. Click on "Tires"
  2. Under the "Shop for Tires" section, take note of the link that reads "Different size for rear tires?"
  3. A drop down box will then provide you with the option to select two different sizes

The website does all the work for you -- finds all available matching pairs and provides the cost of your order. Shopping for your staggered set-up is simple!
