It's easy to think of your vehicle in terms of horsepower, towing capacity, handling, performance, or how far it can go on a single tank of fuel. But none of these things would be possible without those four rings of rubber connecting your car, truck, or SUV to the pavement. Tires are an integral part of your vehicle's safety and performance systems. After all, they're the only part of your vehicle that actually touches the road! To ensure maximum safety, it's important to have the correct tires for the driving conditions.

How To Read Your Tires
A vehicle asks a lot of its tires. By learning how to identify wear and decipher your tire's sidewalls, you'll be better prepared to deal with the issues that arise when rubber meets road.
Types of Tires
The right tire can completely change the way your vehicle drives, affecting everything from traction to handling to fuel efficiency. Before you buy a tire, make sure you know what you're getting.
All Season Tires
All-season tires can handle a variety of road conditions. They have moderate mud and snow capabilities, but as temperatures drop below 7°C all season tires become rigid and have far less traction to grip the road with, increasing your stopping distance.
Winter tires are most effective in deep snow and on ice. They have deeper tread depths to reduce snow buildup on the tire and increased biting edges to help maintain traction and stopping distances. Vehicles equipped with winter tires are 40% less likely to be involved in a collision than are vehicles equipped with all-seasons.
All-Terrain/ Mud Tires
All-terrain and mud-terrain tires are mainly used on four-wheel-drive vehicles. All-terrain tires provide a good compromise between on-road driving and off-road capability, while mud-terrain tires, which feature large treads to ensure traction on uneven, slippery ground, are best suited for off-roading.
Light Truck Tires
Light Truck (LT) tires are suited for heavy vehicles like ¾-ton and larger trucks, SUVs and vans. They are designed to accommodate heavy loads and trailers, with sturdy sidewalls to stand up to the weight of the vehicle.
Performance tires provide better handling and traction than all-season tires, allowing you to more precisely control your vehicle on the road.
Passenger tires are optimized for a smooth, comfortable ride and deliver good traction under most driving conditions, but aren't able to accommodate heavy loads and are not as puncture-resistant as Light Truck (LT) tires.
