If you're getting ready to replace your tires, you need to talk to the New Orleans auto care experts at Twin Tire.
You're putting off the Jazz Fest until later in the day so you can get some chores done. Among those chores is buying new tires. You took a look at your tires the other day and noticed that the tread has worn down. In fact, your tires are almost bald in spots. It's way past time for a new set of tires.
Your tires are so worn because you keep putting off tire buying as long as possible. It's not one of those tasks you look forward to because you never really know what to ask to make sure you get the right tire and a good deal.
You're not alone in feeling a bit lost when buying tires. The AARP offers these tips:
Get the right size.
Age matters, even if the tire is new. A tire that's just been sitting on the shelf is still deteriorating. The AARP says, "A tire's 'birthday' is noted as a four-digit number following a letter sequence beginning with DOT, indicating the week and year it was manufactured — 5009, for instance, means the 50th week of 2009.
"Vehicle manufacturers recommend you replace tires after six years, no matter what their condition. Since some shops stock old tires, check the age code to make sure you're not being sold ones that are already several years old and well on their way to needing replacement."
Learn the language. For example, what, exactly, does "performance" mean?
AARP explains: "Tire performance means ability to handle well at higher speeds, not lifespan."
