Buying new tires is done by most people ever 3 to 4 years. Getting the wrong tires for your vehicle can adversely affect performance and vehicle handling in different types of weather. There are three main types of tires: summer, winter, and all-season. Most people choose all-season since it is cheaper than buying one set for summer and another for winter.

The first thing to know when tire shopping is your vehicle's recommended tire measurements. This information can be found in the owner's manual, or the placard on the driver's side door jam. Next, you need to find the specific type of tires you need. This means matching the speed rating to your vehicle.

The different types of tires are all-season, performance all season, ultra-high-performance all-season, summer, all terrain truck, and winder/snow tires. Come see our technicians at David Westcott Buick GMC in Burlington for assistance finding new tires for your vehicle.
