There’s a lot more to buying a new set of tires than most people realize because there are a lot of factors to consider. Here are just a few of the things you should keep in mind when mulling over the possibilities:
- How much driving do you do?
- Do you do most of your driving on surface streets?
- Do you do most of your driving off-road, or is it a mix of surface streets and off-road?
- Are you in the habit of swapping out your tires in the wintertime, or do you want a set that will serve you reasonably well all year long?
- Which do you value more: Handling and performance, or a smooth, comfortable ride?
