Chevy Tires I Reliable and Rugged

Whether you own the new Chevrolet Blazer or drive the new Chevy Suburban with pride, make sure that your tires are functioning the way they should. Your tires go through a lot. Harsh climate, poor road conditions, and dangerous driving habits take a toll on your tires wearing them down over time. Cars with worn out tires are loose cannons on the streets, posing a threat to the safety of those sitting inside the car and people on the street. To avoid safety and other concerns it is advisable that you get your tires checked every five years. To help you get value for money, we, in this post have compiled a list of a few things you should keep in mind when buying new tires.

Every Chevrolet tire is assigned a load index and tire speed rating. While the load index is the maximum amount of weight each tire can support, speed rating represents the maximum speed concerning the load index. To find your car's load index and tire speed rating, go through your owner's manual or take a look at the placard on the driver's side door jamb. Usually, the first part of the label denotes the tire's measurements, while the last three alphanumeric characters stand for the load index and speed rating. Make sure your new tires have the same load index and speed rating as the older ones. If you cannot find tires with the same load and speed value, look for ones with higher costs.

When it comes to choosing the right tire type, the rule of one size fits all falls flat on its face. When selecting the type of tire you need, consider your driving conditions, the kind of car you own, and your driving habits. Some popular options to choose from include winter and summer-only tires, high-performance tires, all-season tires, and ultra-high performance tires. These tires are built for different purposes. All-season tires, for instance, are specially designed to grip the roads and perform well in almost any weather condition. Performance and ultra-high performance tires are usually used in a sports car and are known to have better cornering grip.
