There are so many tire choices in the Wichita, Goddard, and Park City area, selecting the right one can be a bit overwhelming for Wichita car owners. And even though it’s kind of fun to have new tires on your minivan, they’re a significant investment for most Wichita folks so you want do it right.
Tip: talk with your friendly Yost Auto Service tire professional. He’ll help you sort through the choices.
Here are some of the issues you’ll talk about: One is size – you know, all those numbers on the side of the tire. The right size is key. All new vehicles are required to have stability control which, along with other important safety systems, is calibrated to work with specific tire sizes. Your Wichita tire professional can help stay within manufacturers’ specifications or program a different tire size into your minivan’s computer.
And you’ll want to discuss how and where you drive in Wichita to determine the type of tire you need: summer, winter, all-season tires or all-terrain. There are tires for every Wichita auto owner’s needs.
Like we said, tires are a big investment, so you want to get a good value on tires. Now that doesn’t always mean the cheapest tire. A top tier tire from Yost Auto Service will last a long time and give Wichita car owners good performance throughout its life. Tires sold in Wichita bargain tire shops may not live up to that promise. Again, your friendly Yost Auto Service tire professional can give you options that offer the best long-term value within your immediate budget.
Last, with a 2-wheel drive vehicle you should always replace both tires on an axle. Modern sensors and computer safety systems for minivan brakes, stability and traction control need both tires to have the same amount of wear to work properly. And always put the new tires on the rear so you don’t fishtail in a turn. With all-wheel drive you should replace all four tires at the same time.
