How To Buy Cheap Tires

When buying cheap tires, the first thing to make sure of is to get the right size. This isn’t quite as easy when buying online as it is in the store, but it’s not that difficult if you know the code system for classifying tires. The string of letters and numbers that any tire comes with will tell you exactly what the tire is for, its size, and all of its specifications. These specification codes always work the same way, with each spot in the string giving the same information for every tire. Thus, you will always know such things as rim diameter, load rating, and speed rating to match your car and your type of driving needs.

Especially important when buying a tire is its ability to hold the road, its traction capacity. You will have to balance such considerations as speed and performance and the tire’s ability to handle wet or slippery conditions. Of course, if you live in a very snowy area, you may want faster tires for summer time driving but change to snow tires for the winter. One thing many people may not know is that traction for wet and snowy conditions is lost more quickly as a tire ages than does dry road traction. Thus it is advisable to purchase new tires in the fall rather than wait until the spring.

Whatever tire you need, the best chance at buying them cheaply will come through shopping around a bit and checking out all your options. Cheap tires are yours to have with just a bit of looking.
