Tire is a very important element in a vehicle that needs to be replaced a number of times. It supports the vehicle and absorbs shock while establishing a smooth and comfortable ride. It also gives traction, helps in breaking, steering, supports load to vehicle and maybe we can also add, it also protects the wheel.
There are plenty of different types of tires, all of them bringing different features. Depending on the vehicle that we drive, there is the all-season tire, all-terrain tires, spare, run-flat tire, off-road tire and mud terrain tires. The all-terrain tire is mostly used on SUVs and trucks. The all-terrain tire helps trucks and SUVs drive through the woods, through mud or through any difficult terrain that the vehicle might encounter. These tires keep the vehicle from getting stuck in the mud or any other slop the environment will throw at it. These tires also have stiffer sidewalls to help prevent punctures to the tire when driving off-road. The run-flat tire is one of the most interesting new inventions in the automotive world today. The run-flat tire helps drivers avoid pulling off the roadway to change tires because the vehicle can still run on the flat tire but for a limited distance and at a limited speed. This enables the driver to get the car to a safe area, not close to the roadway where injury could occur, and change the tire in a parking lot.
It all depends on what activity we are in, what kind of pavement or terrain we will be driving on and letâ€™s not forget the budget, we have several brands to choose from. The top brands sold in the world are Bridgestone Tires, Goodyear Tires and Michelin Tires and top major brands are Continental Tires, Pirelli Tires, Sumitomo Tires, Yokohama Tires, Hankook Tires, Nexen Tires, Kumho Tires, Toyo Tires, Falken Tires, Nitto Tires, Firestone Tires and a lot more. All tires may look similar to us but tires perform in different ways depending on the brand, size and type.
