Save Big Money on Tires
Investing in tires can be bewildering. It’s so hard to figure out where to get started, and specifically if you’re new to buying tires you probably don’t understand where to begin. Hopefully this article will help you acquire your subsequent set of tires. This is the information we would give to our kids if they asked how to buy tires.
Step 1: Look at the tires currently on your car. Inspect the volume, brand, model #’s etc… You can find most of that information on the sidewall of the tire itself. If you don’t understand what it all means, that’s ok. Make sure you copy the information down so you have it when you need it. Are you sure you need new tires? Be sure to check for that.
Step 2: Place a call to your favorite tire shop and say: Hi, I own a 2003 Honda Civic and I’m wondering what kind of tires you have in stock for that make and model? (replace your make and model naturally) Make sure you have pen and paper handy, and write down exactly what they tell you. Make sure you know the exact price including installation, and all the detailed info on the tires. They might not volunteer the information but,check out what the estimated mileage for the tire is. NOTE: Some shops will say they don’t know what kind of tires your car needs. Good thing you have all the details of your current tires. Give them this information instead and they should be able to help.
Step 3: Call around to a few other tire shops and compare the prices, mileage, and other factors of the tires.
Step 4: Based on the information, whittle your notes down to a few possible tires. Search Google for the name and model of each tire and see what the experts say about each tire. Read buyer blog posts, consumer reports, any information you can find on the specific tire.
Step 5: You’re now prepared to make a decision on tires for your vehicle.
