Purchasing a new set of tires can be an overwhelming experience, and deciding which tire meets your driving and monetary needs takes effort. Pep Boys can help you make that decision. Before buying a new set of tires, there are a few things to consider and questions to ask yourself.

Your Driving Needs & Habits

It's important to outline how often and far you drive daily. Consider the types of roads you typically travel, and weather conditions you encounter such as rain, snow, and ice. Ask yourself how important ride comfort and road noise is to you. New tires will impact both to varying degrees.

Determine Your Budget

Once you've determined your driving needs and habits, figure out how much you can realistically spend on a new set of tires. A bigger budget will allow for more options ranging from mid-tier to high-end tires while a smaller one might restrict your options.

Additionally, determine how many tires you need to purchase since buying two tires might be cheaper than buying four new tires. Keep in mind that purchasing two new tires will have a different impact than buying four new ones.

Other Factors to Consider

After determining your driving needs and habits and budget, you look at the warranty offerings for any tire that you're considering. Most manufacturers include a warranty that covers many but not all defects, and Pep Boys offers a mileage warranty that could cover additional issues that you might encounter.

Lastly, it might be worthwhile to read any of the customer reviews that exist on the tire. Reviews are often left by someone who has purchased and used the tire, and they might even include some best uses and ways to extend the tire's lifespan.

Although price is important, what you really want is the best value for your money, and Pep Boys is here to help with the best brands at great prices to provide maximum value for you and your car.
