Your tires are a very important component on your vehicle. Keeping them in good condition is not only pertinent to the way your vehicle rides, but your tires also affect how your vehicle stops, steers, and can even affect your fuel economy.
When the time comes to replace your tires, you should do your research before making a purchase. Many newer vehicles come with performance tires from the factory, which are not only expensive to replace, but they may not be the best choice for your vehicle. For example, a lot of four door sedans such as the Chevy Impala, Ford Taurus, Toyota Camry and Honda Accord came equipped with high performance Goodyear or Firestone tires meant for high speed driving and hard cornering. But, how many of us actually drive our grocery-getters over 88 mph??? There may be a few of us, but most of us aren't using our daily drivers to qualify for a Nascar race. So, putting high performance tires (which tend to wear out quicker and ride rougher) on your vehicle is not the best choice in most cases. Instead, you may want to purchase a touring tire, which will provide a smooth ride, good all-weather handling, and generally last longer and cost less then a high performance tire.

.....and remember, rotate your tires about every 6,000 miles, have your vehicle alignment checked about every two years, and attend to any steering or suspension issues promptly. Your tires will last a lot longer and provide a smoother ride with proper maintenance!
