2. When choosing a tire, don’t get hung up on price. Read about what that tire will do for you such as rain, snow and dry pavement traction. Look at the miles the manufacturer is suggesting the tire should go based on the mileage warranty provided. Read reviews from unbiased sources to see what others are finding out about the tires you are interested in. When you have all of your information, look at the cost of the tire based on cost per mile or with tires, look at cost per 100 miles and compare that way to see what the real difference is. You will find the answers with not more than a small amount of reading. The Tire Rack is a great place to look for many of these answers which is why Nelsons Automotive recommends them as a great place to buy your tires.
