How do you choose the best tire for your vehicle?

 

When it comes to buying tires, knowing a few important factors will help you decide which is best for you and your vehicle needs. Two main factors when purchasing tires depends on your vehicle and driving habits.

Comfort and handling

If you are looking for dependability, touring tires are an excellent choice on wet and dry pavement. They offer a smooth, quiet ride.

Sports car for handling and performance

Your best bet is high-performance tires designed to be used at higher speed in wet or dry weather conditions. These tires have a softer rubber compound built for better grip necessary to take sharp corners.

Pickup truck or SUV

For light trucks to drive in challenging terrain on off-road conditions, durability and traction is what you need to look for. For on road, select SUV tires because of their comfort-tuned applications.

Commercial Vehicle

Select tires designed to handle driving through dirt, mud, potholes. Made for more rugged conditions the wear and tear on your commercial vehicles contend with daily.

We live in an area with four seasons. There are different factors to consider when choosing the right tire for what you need. Factors include winter conditions where snowfall is expected, or all season where there is more rainfall. Then there is the adventurous enjoying off road travelling.

Winter tires

Winter tires are made for cold, icy, wet, snowy weather. They are designed to grip for optimize handling and traction during cold winter season.

All Season tires

All season tires support most road conditions and have a greater life in warm weather. These tires have a deep water channel for wet traction and a harder rubber compound.

Off-road tires

Ideal for vehicles to drive off road and limited to on-road. The tires have stiffer sidewalls for increased resistance to puncture while traveling off-road. Tread patterns are spaced wider to help remove mud buildup between the treads.

Select the tires that meets your needs. Think of the conditions you will be driving on a regular basis when choosing a tire for your vehicle. An example is how do you want your vehicle to perform on wet or dry roads? Is traction a higher priority than cornering at high speeds? What performance you are looking for and the conditions, on or off-road. The more you know what you need, the better that the experts at Car Craft can help you with the right tire for your vehicle.

Testimonials

“I went to Car Craft a few years ago BECAUSE I was looking for a car shop that had integrity and offered only services that were needed as cost has always been a factor since I was female and taken advantage of previously by unscrupulous service shops.”

Lavana

I own a Ford 2004 F350 Diesel and have had terrible experiences with other shops.  After my first experience with Tony and Car Craft, I know I’ve found the right shop.  I get better mileage now which relates to less wear on my vehicle thanks to Car Craft.

Shirley Gordon

I got a recommendation from the local Napa parts dealer for Car Craft to help me with my check engine light coming on while I was visiting my parents in Kelowna from Puyallup, Washington. I was leaving to go home the next morning over the Coquihalla Pass Highway. It was after 3 pm when I pulled in. They took great care of me and had the problem diagnosed and the light turned off and I was on my way just after 4 pm. Fantastic people with a great attitude to help you.Hats off to these folks it’s not about the money to them it’s all about taking care of you.

Norm has been very professional.

Bob & Lynn Houle

Fast, friendly service. I did not feel bamboozled by these guys – they explained what I needed to have done and were great about telling me the work that was not necessary. I really appreciated that. I think women can rest assured that they are not getting ripped off when the bring their cars in on their own. That is a real concern for a lot of us.

Kate

I found the staff to be friendly, professional and extremely competent. I would have no hesitation to recommend them to others. I will be using their services again in the future.
