Since you will always now have your tire size handy, don’t be afraid to shop around when looking for tires. You already know what kind to buy, it will only take a little work to go out and find the best price for you. It’s absolutely okay to ask questions to make sure you are getting what you think you are paying for. Any store or car dealership that sells tires will always have someone around to help you find what you are looking for. Don’t be afraid to ask. Of course you can always do exactly what the mechanic says and try not to be involved as much as possible. But, why would you? You know what you are doing and new tires are not a scary thought anymore. Your safety is in your hands and more than likely, your wallet won’t thin out as much as it could. Be adventurous and feel good about having some control over the maintenance of your car.
The drive tires are the workhorses of your tires and they need to be designed to provide outstanding traction while also being incredibly durable. These tires, unlike all position or trailer tires, should only be used on the torque axle for maximum efficiency and better fuel economy. However, if you are always on very hard surfaces, never on soft gravel, dirt, sand or snow, and if you typically drive on dry road conditions you may be able to avoid these specialty tires and go with all position options. You have a range of different options from rib radials to lug or block patterns. Again, for relatively dry driving conditions on hard surfaces rib radials are the best and most efficient choice. Rib radials have a lower rolling resistance, which means they allow you to go further without the need to use fuel to keep moving. Generally the drive tires will wear the fastest of all the tires on the truck because of the torque and the force that they exert on the road to get the rig moving. This is definitely not the set of tires you want to skimp on when it comes to quality.
Under-inflation of tires is a serious safety concern because it forces excessive flexing on the sidewalls. This additional strain on the tire can build up more internal heat, resulting in the aforementioned hazards and premature tire failure. Research completed by the U.S. National Traffic and Safety Administration shows that one in three cars or light trucks are being driven with at least one significantly under-inflated tire. These improperly inflated tires wear out more quickly because they put more drag on the road (rolling resistance). This also leads to a reduction in fuel economy, something most individuals and fleet owners definitely want to avoid.
