Search by vehicle or tire size—which is best?

When it comes to picking out new tires, you can't venture a guess. The purchase must be educated, and it must make sense. Your safety on the road, after all, depends on it. So at Tire Rack, we offer a few different ways to reach a purchase decision. The easiest of which is to shop by vehicle.

When you enter your vehicle's make, model and year into our search tool, we will generate a list of tires that perfectly match your vehicle. It's a list that will offer Original Equipment and performance upgrade options, and it can be slimmed down by simply selecting your ideal performance categories. Every tire on your final list is accompanied by links to complete product descriptions, test results, tire reviews, specifications and warranty information.

We think it's the most complete way to search for a tire, especially if you don't know what you're looking for. But if you do know exactly what you want, you just need to find it in a size that fits your vehicle, you can search by tire size. The resulting list will match the tire size you selected, though it won't be specific to any particular vehicle. In this case, always check with a sales specialist if there's any doubt. We want your new tires to fit perfectly!

And finally, if you're in the market for more than just tires, we recommend you use our Upgrade Garage. Not only will we recommend vehicle-specific tires, we'll take it a few steps further. You can see everything we have that would fit on your vehicle. Think wheels, brakes, suspension, wiper blades and more. And the best part—the Upgrade Garage also creates a virtual representation of your vehicle, which allows you to actually see what certain wheels would look like. (Also read "Why Shop for Wheels by First Selecting a Vehicle?")

So really, the search method is up to you. Determine your needs, then search accordingly.

And as always, our sales specialists are on-hand and ready to help should you need it.
