When it comes time to buy new tires, most of us, especially girls, cringe on the inside. Not only are tires expensive, but there are so many different types of tires out there for every road condition and vehicle type; it is nearly impossible to choose one. So how do you find the perfect tire that will fit your car and your wallet, as well as keep you safe?
Fortunately, you do not always have to sacrifice quality for price. Goodyear offers a triple-tred performance tire that has received excellent reviews for its superior traction and handling. The tread wear is also very good and will only cost you about $ 90 per tire. Yokohama performance tires also received good reviews for their smooth and quiet ride and will only cost about $ 40 a tire.
For light truck and SUV owners, Michelin LTX M/S and Daytona Timberline H/T were the top rated cheap tires . While the Michelin was above average on tread wear and handling, the Daytona had superior traction. Both are excellent all-weather tires and will run from $75-95 each tire.
Winter is just around the corner and for some it’s already here. If you plan to spend much time in the snow this winter, consider the Bridgestone Blizzack. It was rated the safest tire for ice and snow conditions. You can get the base model for around $100 a tire; however, any upgrades will run more expensive.
Another way to cut the cost of your tire purchase it to look for deals. Most tire shops offer coupons or discounts on purchasing so many tires and getting one free or at a discount. Many will also offer warranties that will cover you if something happens to your tires. There are so many tire shops out there these days, don’t be afraid to shop around until you find a deal that fits your car and your budget.
