Car tires need to be replaced every 3 to 4 years. If you have worn out tires, your safety will be compromised. In addition, it is important to choose the right tires for your vehicle to perform best. At Sant Automotive we can help find the right tires for you!
For the most part, tires fall into three categories: all-season, winter and summer. Most car owners buy all-season tires, rather than getting two sets for summer and winter. All-season tires perform good all-around, but not remarkable. Summer tires perform great on cleared and rainy roads, but less than great on ice or snow. Meanwhile, winter tires perform wonderfully on ice and snow, and fair on cleared roads.
First, you can check either your owner’s manual, the label on the driver’s side door or the existing tires. The label will look something like this: P225/60R17 95T. This code specifies the dimensions of the tire, and some of its key limitations, such as load-bearing ability, and maximum speed. Sometimes the inner sidewall contains information not included on the outer sidewall, and vice versa.
At Sant Automotive, we carry the best brands in tires including Michelin, Firestone, Bridgestone and more. Depending on the car, size of your wheels, your preferred brand and how you use your car, we can make our recommendations. If we don’t have your brand or fit in the shop, we will order it for you.
