Tracy’s Automotive can help you choose the right size tire for your car.
You were walking up to your car after visiting the Masks of the Lion King exhibit when you noticed that your tires were worn. Looks like it’s time to go shopping for new tires. Not your favorite chore. Tire shopping can be so confusing with all the choices and sizes.
It all makes you wonder, does size matter? And, by the way, what size is the tire salesman talking about anyway?
Well, it can depend on whether you’re talking about the tire itself or the wheel.
“Wheels and tires are not interchangeable words. Tires are a part of the wheel setup. For instance, your vehicle has a set size of rims, but you can buy different sizes of tires to fit those rims, as long as the middle of the tires is the correct size. That being said, a vehicle with bigger rims will often be able to fit larger tires than other vehicles,” according to caranddriver.com.
Generally speaking, caranddriver.com says, the bigger the tire, the better it will stay on the road.
“As a tire’s width increases, it covers more surface area on the road. According to iSee Cars, this increase in contact with the pavement gives your vehicle more to hold onto, increasing its handling and ability to maneuver,” caranddriver.com says.
The downside is that the bigger the tire, the larger the price tag. So your best bet, if you’re on a budget, is to find a good balance between size and price. And, when you replace your tires, you should stick with that size and brand (unless you’re changing out all four tires at one time). Sticking to the same size and brand will make handling better.
But if you’re not sure what’s best for you and your car, you need the advice of a trusted Wichita tire specialist like the tire technicians at Tracy’s Automotive.
