Discount Tires

Richard Romando
March 13, 2006

Worn tires compromise an automobile’s safety, traction, and gas mileage. Buying new tires is intimidating due to the cost; thus a number of car owners replace worn tires with discount tires. Discount tires may be bought from the original dealership, warehouse stores, or the automobile section at a department store.

When purchasing discount tires, a car owner must be aware of the manufacturer’s name, model year, and model name of the vehicle. That is generally all a tire store needs to know to fit correct tires on the vehicle. It helps to be aware of the size and rating of the tires. If the discount tires are pre-owned, a car owner must make certain that the tread is of adequate depth for gripping the road, that there is uniform wear across the tire, and that there are no bands breaking through the tire.

It is imperative that, even under budget constraints, a car owner does not purchase tires that have a lower speed index or load rating than the original tires. It is not compulsory to replace all four tires together; conditions vary depending on the wear. Automobile stores and tire warehouses have trained professionals who can recommend suitable options.

Increasingly, people are shopping for discount tires online. These sources offer a broad selection of branded tires in every configuration. While car owners cannot see their choices in person, the expediency can make shopping for discount tires more convenient. Many online retailers ship the tires directly to a local service station so that they can be fitted there when the car owner brings the car in to have them installed.

When choosing a source for discount tires, it is advisable to keep in mind that the price of the discount tires may not include mounting and balancing, yet these are necessary expenditures.
