Tires are crucial for handling and braking, but choosing replacements for a car, SUV or truck can be daunting.
For the average sedan, all-season tires are standard and will keep you rolling all year. Touring tires offer better handling capabilities and higher speed ratings, while performance tires offer better traction and even higher speed ratings.
Consider highway tires, which have all-season treads and can carry heavy loads, for trucks and SUVs, . All-terrain tires are designed for optimal traction even off-road. If you carry heavy loads, get all-terrain tires with reinforced sidewalls to handle the pressure.
