6 Important Factors to Consider When Choosing Tires, Hopewell, New York

Buying tires doesn't have to be confusing. You can buy the right tires at the right price by knowing what to look for from your tire dealer. Selecting tires should involve a balance between ride performance, wear, load capability, and cost.

If you’re looking for a tire dealer in Canandaigua, NY, there’s no better place than XL Auto Service & Tires. They offer auto services such as tuneups, oil changes, and brake repairs along with a wide selection of high-quality tires.

Here are some of the factors you have to consider in choosing the right tires for your vehicle:

  • Tire Quantity: If you’re shopping for a single new tire, purchase one with a similar brand to your old tires. If you need two, you can either go with a similar brand or another brand you think has better quality.

  • Tire Size: To tire dealerdetermine the right tire size, check the sidewall of your old tires, the owner’s manual, or the car’s tire placard. If you’re planning to upsize, make sure the new tires have equal or greater load carrying capacity.

  • Tire Type: Buy the type of tires that match your driving conditions. Sports cars need high-performance tires, while pickup trucks and commercial vehicles usually use light truck tires because of their durability and traction.

  • Seasonal Tires: Most cars use all-season tires, but your tire dealer may offer seasonal tires that perform better in certain conditions. 

  • Speed Rating: The tire’s handling response is consistent with its speed rating. Look in the manual for the manufacturer’s recommended speed rating for your car. It can range from Q, the lowest, to Z, the highest.

  • Tire Dealer: Tires can now be purchased everywhere, from the dealership to discount retailers and online shops. Tires sold in dealerships are the most expensive, so check out local auto shops that may offer better prices.
