Buying Tires Your First Time

buying tires for the first timeAre you buying tires yourself for the first time? Maybe you’ve had a friend, parent, or spouse who has helped in the past and this time you want to shop for tires yourself. While shopping for tires may seem overwhelming to some, we assure you that it can be a positive experience you won’t mind doing again in the future.

Here are a few tips that will be helpful when buying tires

Knowing if or when to replace your tires is key. Here are some signs to watch, but if ever in doubt, please stop by and let us take a look.

You can buy new or quality used tires. Which you need depends, in part, on your budget and the type of driving you do. This article helps with the decision on whether to buy new or used tires.

Brand doesn’t really matter. Many tire places sell specific brands of tires, but the Tire Zoo sells most major brands of tires, as well as some other lesser known brands. Buying what is needed for your vehicle, as well as the quality of the tire, are the most important factors.

Your owner manual, the sticker on the inside of the driver’s side door, and the tires themselves will tell you the size/kind of tires you need for your vehicle. If you need help understanding what the numbers and letters mean, this article explains a lot. Otherwise, you can either write down what you see or stop by and we can tell you what type of tire your vehicle needs.

Contrary to some information out there, you do not have to buy all four tires at the same time. It is possible to replace one bad tire or your two front tires, for example, and leave the remaining tires on your vehicle until they need to be replaced. Unless your existing tires are brand new, it is likely you’ll need to buy quality used tires so we can match your tread and the tires will perform and wear evenly.
