3 Tips For Saving On New Tires

3 Tips For Saving On New TiresDoes your car need new tires? How do you know when to replace your tires? And how do you get the best deal?

Asking these questions can help save you money, since tires are very expensive. And help you with the confusing decision of which tires to purchase.

Here are 3 tips to help you with buying tires.

#1. Remember safety comes first.

You and your family will be riding on them, so getting good quality tires is a must. You can use sites like Consumer Reports to find out the experts’ “best picks” based on their research and testing.

#2. Do you really need new tires?

Use “the penny test” to find out if your tires are safe to keep or not. Just place a penny between the treads with Lincoln’s head facing down. If you can see the top of his head, it’s time for new tires. If you can’t see the top of his head, then a simple tire rotation can give you thousands of extra miles on the same tires, before you need to by a new set.

#3. Shop around.

Go online and compare prices before visiting your tire retailer. Look for discounts and coupons, and use online services that let you compare, and use price matching. Then call your local tire stores and talk to the managers, who can let you in on specials coming up soon.
