How to Choose the Right Tires for Your Vehicle

By Basem Wasef

Tires
Tires are a vital component of car safety, and their importance is often overlooked. "Tires are the only four things touching the ground on your vehicle, and they impact everything – whether it's braking, turning, accelerating or wet driving," explains Duane Sampson, Brand Manager for Yokohama Tires. 
 
Winter tires
Because they complete that essential link between your car's suspension and the road, tires are responsible for translating the driver's intentions directly towards vehicle performance. A quality set of tires will offer the responsiveness necessary for obstacle avoidance, short stopping distances that aid panic braking situations, and road-holding grip under both dry and wet conditions. "There's not a single component on a vehicle that contributes more to safety than tires," says Kurt Berger, Manager for Consumer Products Engineering at Bridgestone.
 
Considering that quality tires can make the difference between stopping safely and hitting a car in front of you at 30 mph, let's take a look at a few key questions that typically surround tire purchases and maintenance.
 
What kind of tire should I look for?

You’ll then want to ask yourself some questions regarding your tastes and driving style. Do you need winter tires? How important is comfort for you? A tire professional will be able to help narrow down your choices based on what you want. There are three overarching categories of tire: summer, all-season and winter. Within those, you’ll find various performance levels to suit driving conditions. And of course, SUV and light trucks can be clad with off-road, all terrain, highway, or highway all-season tread patterns.
 
Should I spend extra for premium tires?
 
Simonelli says that "premium tire products are generally manufactured using higher standards, whether through design and testing, casing construction, e...
