Which tire is best for your car, motorcycle or truck? The play off between cost and quality is difficult to manage. For example – with a lease car that needs to be turned back to it’s dealer, it’s tempting to put on the cheapest tires possible so that the return standards are satisfied. But the manufacturer may have specified speed rated tires of a premium brand to be supplied on the car. So price is not the only option.

Further, even if we’re not concerned with the issue of having the best brand on our vehicle because of manufacturer stipulation, we may still have in mind the issue of quality versus price. How quickly will the tire wear? Will the tire be safe in rain, ice or snow? What about warranty periods and the warranty coverage? If discounts are offered on tires, will they have a lot worse quality than higher priced tires? Will a misjudged parking attempt ruin the tire or affect in such a way as to prevent the car passing it’s roadworthy test?

Besides the problem of choosing the best tire – it’s always good to understand the markings on road tires that appear to written in some foreign language only interpreted by tire dealers. This site deals with that side of choosing a car tire (in the blog.)
