How to Find the Right Tires for Your Car

Overwhelmed by all your tires options? It’s much easier if you decide what your priorities are. Different tires will fit different needs and lifestyles.

Interested in boosting the already athletic performance of your Honda Civic? Performance tires grant you sharper handling and let you tackle corners with confidence. Heading somewhere snowy this winter? In that case, look into cold weather tires, built to handle harsh weather conditions. If you just want an all-around reliable tire, you can also choose all-season tires that can tackle rain, heat, and everything in between.

If you need any help determining which tires might be right for you, the professionals at our Honda tire center would be happy to help.

When It’s Time for New Tires

Sometimes the signs you need to replace your tires are obvious—for example, a blowout. That being said, it’s also important to pay attention to more subtle signs your tires might be wearing out.

Wondering if your tread might be too shallow and you’re not getting the traction you need? It’s easy to perform a test using a penny. If the top of Abraham Lincoln’s head is exposed, it means you need to start looking for new tires. If the weather has been extremely hot lately, it may have structurally damaged your tires, and you should keep an eye out for damage. Age is another factor—most tires should be replaced once they’re ten years old. Bulges and cracks are also signs that it might be time to get them replaced.

The best way to keep your tires in great condition is to bring your car in for wheel alignments and tire rotations at our Honda service center. We want you to enjoy a long and happy life with your car, and we’re always happy to make that happen at 5905 Sepulveda Blvd. See you soon!
