How to Choose the Right Tires

Whether you’re into off-roading or saving money at the pumps, getting the right tires is crucial in making sure you’re always safe on the road. There are three different tires to choose from: winter/snow tires, performance all-season tires, and all-season tires. Each set of tires provides you with the ability to perform well, but on different types of surfaces. For example, winter/snow tires are best for winter-driving when road conditions are wet, icy, and slippery. These tires ensure that you stay safe behind the wheel.

Is It Time for New Tires?

There are a couple of ways to determine if you need a new set of tires. The first way is called the penny test, where you insert a penny upside down between the treads of your tire. If President Lincoln’s head is showing, it’s time to get a new set of tires. The other way is by simply driving. If you experience significant vibration behind the wheel when you drive, it’s probably time to get a new set of rubbers.

Your nearby service center will always make sure that you’re not only getting the right set of tires, but that you’re also maximizing the rubber you have left on your tires. We’ll make sure that you are taken care of and we’ll get you back on the road as quickly as possible. Come down to our dealership in Bowie, MD located at 2406 Crain Highway. We hope to see you soon!
