Why? As one of the top auto tire dealers, Tire Rack's team of experts want to make sure you can purchase performance car tires with confidence.
It can get confusing—there are a number of things to consider when selecting the right tire. Here are a few:
• If you only need to replace one tire, it's important to make sure that the replacement is identical to the other four tires on your vehicle. One oddball tire can throw everything off. Including your safety.
• When replacing two out of the four tires on your vehicle, select a pair that matches your existing tire. However, a pair similar in size and type can also work. You'll want to install these on the rear axle, though. (And be sure to find out why your previous tires needed to be replaced. You may have an alignment issue.)
• Determine your worst and everyday driving conditions. If you use more than one set of tires and wheels (for instance, you switch to winter / snow tires seasonally), then your decision gets easier. If you must stick with one set, then you'll want to pick a tire that suits your needs in almost any condition: city traffic, snowfall, rain, mountains...it all affects your tires so you'll want to balance performance accordingly.
If you think about these things, you'll find it easier to purchase car tires. And when you shop by vehicle, we'll show you the tires that will be a perfect fit on your vehicle.
