If you already have a pretty good idea of what you want in a tire, the branding information might be enough to help make your decision. If not, let’s take a look at the Bridgestone tires available in Burke, VA in another way; by type:
All Season Tires – versatile tires designed to perform well in a variety of driving conditions including wet roads and light winter driving. These tires are less adept at handling extreme driving conditions ice and deep snow.
Light/Medium Truck Tires are tires designed specifically to carry heavy loads. They place a premium on ruggedness and durability at the expense of a smoother, more comfortable ride.
Passenger Tires – These generally offer the best overall value, offering durability, expressed in relatively high mileage, with comfort. They’re designed for use on surface streets and don’t fare well off-road.
Passenger tires come in two flavors: all-season and all-weather. All season tires are long lasting and provide a smooth ride. They offer good traction in both wet and dry conditions. All weather tires are designed for year-round use and are more capable in terms of handling extreme weather conditions.
Touring Tires – Premium tires that offer longevity and a smooth ride. Most touring tires come with all-season tread, and as such, perform well in both wet and dry conditions.
Performance Tires – Designed to be used primarily on sports cars, these tires place a premium on handling and performance in both wet and dry conditions, but they do sacrifice a bit where comfort and a smooth ride is concerned.
Summer Tires – Optimized for hot weather conditions.
Winter Tires – Optimized for superior handling in icy and snowy conditions.
