By: Terry Edwards

Have you checked your tires lately? If not, maybe it's time to take a look and see what condition your car tires are in. If they are starting to look worn then it's time to take them to your local Firestone tire dealer for a new set of tires.

When you get there you will have your choice of a variety of tires to choose from. So how do you know which type of tires you need? Keep reading and you will learn how to choose the right type of tire for your traveling needs.

To be able to choose the correct tire for your vehicle, you need to determine your driving needs. Do you live in an area where there are hot summers and nasty winters? If so then you should probably go with an all season tire. These tires are made to withstand the heat of a hot summer pavement and they will still be able to give you traction in the winter snow.

Ask your Firestone tire dealer about these tires. They come in the basic all season tires or the performance all season tires. The performance all season tires are little more expensive, but will give you a better grip and handling on wet and dry pavement.

Do you live in an area where it is always hot? Do the summers get sweltering? If so, then ask your Firestone tire dealer about the ultra high performance summer tires. These tires are the best for handling and braking on wet and dry pavement. But beware; they do not perform well at all in cold temperatures and on snow or ice.

If the area you live in has hot summers and mild winters with the occasional snowfall, then you might want to try the ultra high performance all season tire. These tires will give you great handling and braking on wet and dry pavement. They will also give you needed traction on the snow.

The next tire is a must have if you live in the area of the country that has long, cold, winters with large amounts of snow and ice. These are the winter snow tires. These tires are made to give you maximum traction in cold temperatures on snow and ice. They do not handle well on dry and warm pavement, so they are suitable for winter only. These tires are relatively inexpensive.

So as you can see, you have a variety of choices when it comes to tires. Visit your local Firestone tire dealer. They will be able to help you make the right choice when it comes to your tire needs.
