Life is full of choices, and the more options we have, the harder it is to make the right choice. With the wide range of tires offered by CARiD, the decision-making process becomes harder than ever. And if you don't know where to start from, it may seem virtually impossible to find a tire that would meet all your requirements. You can check each single brand, choose the performance characteristics, material, and structure. Everything may seem to work just fine, until you reach the dimensions. How frustrating it will be, if the tire you've chosen is not available in the size you need. Well, learning how too choose is certainly one of the most useful skills. And even though no one can make your choices for you, getting some help is never a bad idea. As always, CARiD is here, ready to assist you.
There is a lot of information on the sidewall of a tire. Typically, you'll find UTQG ratings for treadwear, traction and temperature, the size of the tire, the load rating index number with a speed rating index, the construction type (bias or radial), the D.O.T. compliance code, and construction details. On some tires used as original equipment, you may also find a marking that indicates its OE status.
Choosing a tire is not a do-or-die decision, so you do have a luxury of working through it. However, even the most picky aficionados don't want to spend all the free time deciding what tire would sit better. There are so many more interesting things to do after all. The above chart will 100% help you save hours or even days of time. Even though the chart cannot guarantee that a specific tire perfectly fits your vehicle, it lists all the sizes that are offered by various brands and are available at CARiD. Verify tire dimensions by viewing the chart, select the size that is optimum for your vehicle, then click on it, and voila, you see all the options that are available in the size you've chosen.
