Question: I need
new tires. How do I know
which tires to get?
Nordonia Tire and Service Goodyear Answer:
Letís look at selecting new tires in light of three factors: Function, Fit,
Function: This gets at what your needs are for new tires: OH
weather conditions, Macedonia terrain, Northfield temperatures, etc.
Most new family vehicles in and around Northfield, Nordonia, and
Macedonia Ohio come with all-season tires. They can be used all year
long and do pretty well in most Ohio road conditions Ė but they
arenít ideal at the extremes.
Winter tires have a more aggressive tread for handling snow and ice
on freeways and they have a rubber compound that helps them have
better traction as Macedonia temperatures drop below 45 degrees
Fahrenheit. Definitely better stopping and road-holding
characteristics for Northfield, Nordonia and Macedonia car owners
than all-season tires in winter weather. Dedicated summer tires
enhance warm Ohio weather performance driving for Northfield car
If you drive off-road around Macedonia, there is a spectrum of tires
from all-terrain (a good mix of highway and off-road capability) to
dedicated off-road tires.
The key is to communicate with your Nordonia Tire and Service
Goodyear tire professional and think about the function you need to
get the type of tire, load rating, speed rating and wear rating you
Fit: The easiest thing is to settle
upon tires in the same size that were installed by the automobile
manufacturer. If you want a different size wheel or tire profile, be
sure to work with your Nordonia Tire and Service Goodyear technician
so you can make sure that your new wheels and tires fit properly and
donít rub in bumps or turns. Itís also important to make sure that
important safety systems like anti-lock brakes, stability control
and traction control arenít adversely affected by the new tire size
(the computer may need to be recalibrated to make necessary critical
Value: Note, I didnít say price. The tire that meets all your needs
AND has the warranty and tread life you expect will commonly not be
the least pricey option Ė but it may well return the best value for
your tire dollar.
