If the date stamp on your tires is the same year you bought the vehicle, the time might be well overdue for new tires.
But when exactly do you need new tires?
If your vehicle is around 6 years old or has 40,000 – 60,000 miles on them, the tires your car or truck came with are likely at the end of their life.
Whether it’s a Camaro on performance tires or a hybrid on a tread designed to maximize fuel mileage, the manufacturer’s desire to bring out the characteristics of the vehicle that draws consumers in the first place are often why vehicles come with the tires they do.
Tires can also vary between sport, hybrid and diesel versions of the same vehicle.
If you’ve been happy with the way your car or truck rides since you drove it off the lot, stick with what’s on there to avoid any surprises down the road.
There are a lot of ways to shop for tires, whether it’s at your vehicle’s dealership, third-party retailers or even online or sites like craigslist.
At The Auto Shop, we can always hook you up with a new set of tires when you’re in for an oil change or other major service item.
