Quick Tips on Choosing the Right Tires

When you're ready to enjoy new tires, you'll see that you have many different options to choose from. The side wall of a tire is what defines the tire’s capabilities. Tires have varied construction, size, and speed rating. The treadwear is what determines how long the tires will last with 100 being the baseline measurement.

Reaction is available in AA, A, B, and C. Traction lets you know how quickly the tires will stop when on wet pavement. The temperature is defined by A, B, and C. This lets you know how quickly heat dissipates away from the tires. Tires rated below C are not acceptable tires.

A marking of M+S means it meets the standards of the Rubber Manufacturers Association. “OE” on the tires means Original Equipment and that your vehicle manufacturer approved these tires. For more details, feel free to contact our service center with any questions you might have.
