The inspirational photos below are the parts of this post that categorized into the Tires
category and Published at August 18th, 2018 by ffzm.
Dividing tires into set categories isn`t as easy as it might sound because of the multitude of ways tires get used. But if it can be said that there are generally three basic categories of tires. I think they would have to be classified as this: Highway or touring tires. Crossover or all-terrain tires and off road tires. Keep in mind we are simply speaking about passenger car and light truck applications tires.
Price and Value. Quality and performance are important factors to consider when buying new tires. Most people think that cheaper is better. What consumers don`t see is that a tire costing $100 with 30.000 mile tread life is less cost-efficient than a $120 one that lasts 50.000 miles on the road. If buyers divide the total cost from tread life. they`ll find that some higher priced rubbers are the better option in the long run. In terms of quality. tires play a major role in fuel efficiency. A simple tire can actually burn more fuel than those with advanced fuel-saving technologies. Finding that balance between quality and price is easy. once a buyer thinks in the long-term.
What type of tire chains does my vehicle need? There are about four major types of tire chains. each with their own advantages and disadvantages. Let`s take a quick look at them. shall we?
If you are into more serious four wheel driving (like mud and rock work) then a set of mud terrain tires is your best bet. These are considerably better for off road work. but you pay for it in terms of on road performance. Mud Terrain Tires are generally louder on the road. and they are worse in terms of handling and breaking (except in the wet). On a good note. these tend to have a very long life if you rotate them regularly. and get them balanced properly.
The oldest and one of the most reliable tire chains are ladder chains. These work by going over the tire`s treads directly. thus they fit very securely to it. On the other hand. it does not cover all parts of the tire. so some parts may still come into contact with the wet and slippery road. Consider this type if you plan to only drive short distances during the winter.
