How to choose the right replacement tires
Quite frankly, your tires take a beating. As the only four points of contact between your vehicle and the road, they help you overcome harsh road conditions and withstand potholes and bumps in the road. Although advances in tire manufacturing have made them more durable than ever before, they still need to be replaced ever 6-10 years.
As a general rule, you should absolutely get new tires before they’ve been on your vehicle for 10 years, but there are a few tell-tale signs (treadwear, dry rot, etc.) that might want to make you want to replace your tires before that. It’s also important to remember that 10 years is on the high end and many tire companies recommend replacement tires as soon as six years after manufacture, so it’s best to keep an eye on some of the warning signs to determine when they need replacing. When you do decide to replace your tires, you should have an idea how to choose the right replacement tires for your vehicle based on your location, vehicle, and driving habits.
