Tires, Tires Everywhere. How Do You Choose The Best?
The type of tire you want on your fleet or commercial vehicle depends on a variety of factors, from climate to how you use the vehicle. There are multiple tire styles for most applications, and one of them is right for you. At Gateway Auto Clinic in Kettering, OH, we’re ready to help you make your choice. If you’d like to narrow it down before you come see us, here’s a short rundown of common tires that will meet your specific need.
All-Terrain - All-terrain tires are perfect for all-purpose vehicles. If you spend most of your time on the road and need to handle light mud, snow, or sand occasionally, all-terrain tires are right for you. These tires are similar to all-season tires, but with more and deeper tread. They perform well on the road, and they will keep you out of sticky situations off-road or in in-climate weather. They provide traction and are designed to handle gravel, sand and light mud.
Highway Tires - Highway tires are designed for a comfortable, quiet ride. If your truck spends most of its time on the interstate, highway tires are good choice. They’re designed to handle the heavier loads of a truck or SUV, and they resist uneven wear on their tread.
Ribbed - Ribbed tires are built for highway use as well. They are reinforced, making them great for vehicles under load, and are built to be long-lasting. A truck with ribbed tires also has enhanced wet weather traction. If you need a more heavy-duty application for highway hauling, ribbed tires are probably the way to go.
Off-Road - Off-road tires feature aggressive tread patterns and treads that encompass part of the sidewall as well. These tires tend to be noisy and less comfortable on the highway, but if your vehicle is typically used for short trips to off the pavement locations, these tires will keep you moving.
No matter what type of fleet you operate, Gateway Auto Clinic in Kettering, OH will help you find the tire that’s right for you. We’ll help you weigh your options, and get them installed quickly so you’re back on the road in no time.
