Choosing the right tires for your truck

Every part of your truck serves a purpose, but one area that often gets neglected are your tires, yet the tires are an important component of your ride. Having the proper truck wheels and tires can improve your fuel economy, handling, and your overall safety.

Most tires that are equipped on a new truck from the factory are what would be considered standard “street” driving tires. If you intend to go off road in difficult terrain like steep rocks or mud, the biggest factor you have to overcome is height so you will need to choose a bigger tire that is at least one or two sizes taller, regardless of the tread type.

The aggressive open tread design was optimized using computer modeling to deliver unsurpassed grip and control without excessive noise. It also delivers improved self-cleaning performance in mud and snow. Pro Comp Xtreme M/T 2 Tires come with 40,000 Mile Tread Wear Warranty.

When selecting truck tires that you are not familiar about, always go to your vehicle’s identification sticker (located in the vehicle’s door or glove box) or owners’ manual as your guide. Over there, you will see the speed, rim size and allowable payload intended for your truck tire and wheel.

Choosing the right tire for your truck involves several considerations. But to make the process less intimidating, keep these two simple guidelines in mind when considering tires. Firstly, know your expected needs and driving uses. This consideration is important to overall driving enjoyment and a professional tire shop will help you determine your tire needs.
