There are so many tire choices in the Abilene, Abilene, and Dyess Afb area, selecting the right one can be a bit overwhelming for Sweetwater car owners. And even though it’s kind of fun to have new tires on your truck, they’re a significant investment for most Sweetwater folks so you want do it right.
Tip: talk with your understanding Procter Automotive tire professional. He’ll help you sort through the choices.
Here are some of the issues you’ll talk about: One is size – you know, all those numbers on the side of the tire. The right size is essential. All new vehicles are required to have stability control which, along with other important safety systems, is calibrated to work with specific tire sizes. Your Abilene tire professional can help stay within auto makers’ specifications or program a different tire size into your truck’s computer.
And you’ll want to discuss how and where you drive in Sweetwater to determine the type of tire you need: summer, winter, all-season tires or all-terrain. There are tires for every Sweetwater auto owner’s needs.
Like we said, tires are a big investment, so you want to get a good value on tires. Now that doesn’t always mean the cheapest tire. A top tier tire from Procter Automotive will last a long time and give Sweetwater motorists good performance throughout its life. Tires sold in Abilene bargain tire shops may not live up to that promise. Again, your understanding Procter Automotive tire professional can give you options that offer the best long-term value within your immediate budget.
Last, with a 2-wheel drive vehicle you should always replace both tires on an axle. Modern sensors and computer safety systems for truck brakes, stability and traction control need both tires to have the same amount of wear to work properly. And always put the new tires on the rear so you don’t fishtail in a turn. With all-wheel drive you should replace all four tires at the same time.
Schedule a tire inspection at Procter Automotive to see how much life is left in your truck tires and seek the help of a professional when choosing new shoes for your vehicle.
