Tips for buy tire

1.Your driving style and operating environment will determine the best tires for your vehicle. Be honest with yourself and your dealer.
2.Tire performance is about compromise. High-performance tires wear quickly and can be noisy. Quiet, long-wearing tires sacrifice some performance.
3.Consider a dedicated set of wheels for snow tires in winter climates. Always run with a full set of four snow tires.
4.Don't mix and match types and ratings of tires. Handling and braking will suffer. Always replace tires as a set.
5.Always use tires for their designed purpose. Off-road tires are useless on the highway, as are high-performance summer tires in wintry conditions.

You should probably leave.

Exactly, if anything they're better in wet conditions

I drive like an *******, speed, and swerve all over the road. I also prefer driving on the shoulder.

2.Tire performance is about compromise. High-performance tires wear quickly and can be noisy. Quiet, long-wearing tires sacrifice some performance.
I want performance to suit my driving style, but they need to be quiet so people can hear my stereo blasting and me yelling at them as I pass them in a ditch.

3.Consider a dedicated set of wheels for snow tires in winter climates. Always run with a full set of four snow tires.
Temperatures fluctuate by ~80* each day. Should I change my tires in the morning before work, and then put on a different set when I get ready to go home?

4.Don't mix and match types and ratings of tires. Handling and braking will suffer. Always replace tires as a set.
I like the tires I have on the front passenger side and rear driver side. Can I just replace the other 2 right now?

5.Always use tires for their designed purpose. Off-road tires are useless on the highway, as are high-performance summer tires in wintry conditions.
Can I use slicks on the back for traction on the road, and mud grips up front for off-road traction, since I tend to pass people off the road?
So what tires would you recommend for me, Grand Tire Wizard?
