Every car sold comes with tires, right? It is hard to drive off the lot without them. The reality is that it is only a matter of time before you start giving some thought to upgrading to performance tires, or maybe you just need a new set. Does the thought of buying tires or auto parts make you as frightened as an acrophobic going to the top of Sears Tower? Calm down. Take a deep breath because Dr. Drivewire will explain all of the insider secrets you need to know about purchasing the best tire for your needs.
The "P" in this example stands for passenger. This tire would go on a passenger car. You may also see "LT" for a light truck, "T" for temporary tire, or "E" for a heavy duty truck. Simple enough when you know what kind of vehicle you drive.
In an effort to minimize cost, some people try using snow tires only on the drive wheels of their vehicle. This is an ineffective and possibly dangerous solution. This may give you the confidence in certain situations of having control however this is an illusion and the false confidence may lead to reckless results. Putting snow tires in the front on a front wheel drive may allow better starts and stopping but it places you in danger of fishtailing around turns. The rear wheels will not have sufficient traction to handle the turns your front wheels initiate. Similarly and possibly more dangerous, putting snow tires on the rear wheels of a rear wheel drive car will allow better starts but will do nothing for steering or braking. It is always advised to install snow tires in a complete set of four.
