choosing the right tires

There’s a lot more to tires than you might expect. Tires can significantly affect the ride of your vehicle and can provide needed support in a variety of driving conditions. It’s important to equip your vehicle with tires that fit your lifestyle.  

Tires That Fit Your Lifestyle 

Here are a few different tire options to consider depending on your location and driving style: 


If you’re doing typical SoCal driving these are probably a good option. An all-season tire is good for paved roads and mild to warm temperatures. These will make your commute easy and be able to handle the minimal rain we get in this area. All-season tires tend to have good tread wear, so if you’re driving under normal conditions, you should be happy with this type of tire. This is the perfect tire for cars like the Honda Civic or Nissan Altima. 


If you’ve invested in a performance vehicle, you’ll likely want to get performance tires. In fact, tires that don’t meet the needs of a performance vehicle can negatively impact handling and overall operation. Performance tires tend to be a bit softer for better grip on the road, so this means that tread wear rating might not be as high as an all-season, but they are what a performance vehicle needs for a proper driving experience.  Put these on your Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint or your BMW Z4. 


Touring tires offer the smoothest ride available. They are great for luxury sedans and SUVs when owners want a quiet and responsive driving experience. Most touring tires are also all-season, so they would be good for regular SoCal driving. This type of tire would be ideal on vehicles like the Lexus RX 350L. 


Winter/snow tires are needed if you live in cold climates or enjoy travel to colder locales. Winter tires are designed to handle snow, slush and ice, so it makes for a much nicer and safer trip if you’re headed to colder weather. That being said, these tires aren’t good for warmer temperatures, so you’ll need to switch them out once the seasons change or you head back to SoCal. Nevertheless, winter tires are a safety must if you’re going to be driving in below zero temps. If they’ve had little wear and you plan on keeping your vehicle you can always hold onto them for next season. Swap these out on your Jeep Wrangler next time you’re headed for the slopes. 


If you’re a weekend warrior and like to head out for some off roading in your free time, all-terrain tires could be a good option. These are designed to handle unpaved roads such as dirt, gravel and rocks. These can be used for regular driving as well, but it might be a bit rougher and noisier ride than an all-season. However, it would make it easy to regularly go from regular driving to adventuring. A good option for your Subaru Outback Wilderness or Ford Bronco.
