Time to Get Re-Tired | Tires

Buying tires can be tiresome. Here are some tips for choosing new tires in New Orleans.

You’d decided to take the kids to Gator Run, a new lazy river at the Audubon Zoo today but, when you and the kids climbed in the car, you noticed your tires seemed a bit low. On closer inspection, you realized that they are pretty well worn out and it’s time to get a new set. You figure that’s easy enough to fix: Just pull into the first tire store you see and buy some new tires – whatever’s on sale. After all, a tire’s a tire, right?

That sounds good in theory. But, in reality, it wouldn’t be wise, according to CNN. You need to be more selective when it comes to tires.

“A well-selected and maintained tire can contribute greatly to your safety, increased fuel economy, better handling and stopping in all road conditions as well as providing greater comfort and ride quality,” CNN says.

CNN offers these tire care tips from AOL Autos: Things to know about tires:

Make sure your car is in good shape. … If you put a new set of tires on a misaligned car, or one with bad shocks, you're throwing money away. The new tires will wear quickly and unevenly, and you'll need another set in a hurry. …

Buy a full, matching set. Though you may be tempted to cut corners, and just replace the tire/s that are most worn, modern suspension technology is designed to work best with a matching set of tires. By replacing all four at once, you'll be able to maintain your tires better …, evaluate and repair suspension problems before they become major, and achieve the highest degree of safety and predictable handling. …

Check on your spare. This is a great time to have your spare tire inspected, and replaced if necessary. …

Maintain your new tires. Check for proper inflation on a regular basis. Keeping your tires properly inflated will improve your gas mileage and will greatly improve your tires' longevity.”
