Three Types of Tires Exposed

Three types of tires exposed. I say exposed because in this lesson we are going to identify the types of tires according how they are made and how they will fit what you need for your car.

1) kind of driving you do
2) the maximum number of passengers you carry
3) heaviest cargo you carry
4) safety
5) tread life
6) appearance

It is the best thing is to ask the dealer regarding the type of tire you need.  Dealers are knowledgeable about the products they are selling because they are oriented to it.  That’s the very first thing we should do, to inquire about what we need and if they don’t know find another dealer that could give us the specific details of what we need.
