Used Tires for Your Car: Making the Right Purchase

Before you decide to buy tires, ask a friend who knows the car, your dealer, or a mechanic you trust for tire advice. You may want to ask your friends and colleagues if they can recommend someone who can give you solid advice if you don't know mechanics yourself. 

Buying a new connection for your car is a long term investment that will give you and your family a safer journey. You will need to do some pricing before buying to find the best deal of used tire locally, but be prepared to shell out some money. You want your tires to protect you and your car in the snow and rain.

The best thing to do is try to buy new tires that are the same as the ones the car had when it first bought it. You will find all the necessary information about your tires printed directly on the tires currently in your car. This should include the brand, size, design, load, height, width and diameter.

Do a bit of legwork deciding where to buy your new tires. You can shop around to see if any local stores or larger dealers have special offers on tires. You can stop by the newspaper sales area on Sundays. You can also shop online.

You should also check the function of your spare tire periodically. It may also need to be replaced at the same time as the other four tires.

Schedule your car so that its tires are always level, rotating, and balanced. Always check tire pressure to maximize your car's performance. You can easily save a few dollars on fuel mileage and tire changes just by taking care of your tires properly.
