At Tire Rack, we tend to favor purchasing car tires and wheels in a set—but not for the reason you, our customers, would immediately think. It isn't about the money, it's about the benefits.
Car wheel and tire sets make it really easy to swap out summer for winter / snow tires, as the individual tires can stay mounted on their individual wheels. And if you're swapping out your wheels, it means your summer wheels won't have to deal with damaging ice, salt and snow. And you won't have to pay to have them installed every season. You can install a package yourself. (Read more.)
Further, when you purchase a Tire & Wheel Package from Tire Rack, you can be sure that nearly all possible wheel- and tire-related vibration is under control—we test all tire and wheel sets using the Hunter Engineering GSP9700 Vibration Control System. Sounds cool, and it is. (Read more.)
To select rims and tires online, start in the Upgrade Garage and enter your vehicle's make, model and year. "View Wheels" to see (yes, you'll actually see) what'll work on your vehicle. Once you select your favorite, you can add it to your Shopping Cart and continue by looking through the tires we've recommended. It's that easy, and it's totally worth it.
Winter / Snow Tire & Wheel Packages are available, too!
