Purchasing new tires doesn’t have to be a dreaded chore. Yes, it’s going to cost you a sizeable amount of money, but it’s a vital part of safe driving. It’s not a chore if you know the basics and what to look for when buying new tires.

The following are the things to look for before purchasing new tires:

  • Make sure that your car is in good shape. This means that the alignment and suspension are right. When you have new tires installed, they will be aligned and balanced. Otherwise, your new tires will wear out prematurely and your car will not be safe to drive.
  • Decipher the tire code. Check your owner’s manual and information placard for the sizing information to guarantee to purchase the proper size tires for your vehicle. Mismatched tires are a poor investment and a safety hazard.
  • Consider the wheels. Make sure the tire you purchase is the proper wheel size. If they are the wrong size they will not even fit the wheels of your car.
  • Buy a full, matching set. It’s always best to purchase four tires for your vehicle. This provides a greater level of safety and the peace of mind that you have tires that will all equally service your vehicle for the duration of the life of the tires. It’s especially vital if you have an all-wheel-drive vehicle. If not it can cause serious transmission issues.
  • Check your spare. Make sure the spare tire is serviceable as a spare if you should need it in the future and that it is properly inflated.
  • Break in your new tires carefully. You will want to break in your new tires slowly to ensure they begin to wear properly and that your alignment and suspension are in good order. The tire manufacturer will have recommendations in the paperwork that comes with the tires concerning this.
