Why Buying The Right Tire Is Important
Manufacturers put recommended tire sizes in their owners’ manuals to help you get the tire that will be most efficient for your specific vehicle. Your car’s braking, steering and suspension are all designed and tuned for a specific tire size.
When buying tires, remember these tips:
- Pickup truck tires are coded with "LT" on the sidewall, rather than "P". Don’t skimp and save money by putting passenger car (P) tires on your truck. LT tires are designed specifically for light trucks, with a higher load capacity.
- Stay with your original tires’ speed rating. Tires with higher speed ratings will do a better job of dissipating heat on long drives, and heat is your tires’ enemy.
It might be tempting to upsize your tires for steering and handling performance, or just for looks, but always remember these details that can be a factor:
- Oversize tires weigh more, adding to your car’s “unsprung weight.” Unsprung weight can have a very distinct effect on handling and performance.
- Oversize tires also offer more rolling resistance, meaning they could cost you as much as 1 to 2 miles per gallon.
- Tires that are too tall, with a profile that’s larger (taller) than original equipment, can affect the accuracy of your odometer and speedometer, even if your rims are still the same size.
