If you’re in the market for new tires but aren’t sure where to start, our Nissan parts team at Van Horn Nissan of Sheboygan are more than happy to help. We have lots of experience with tires and tire maintenance and can help you find a set that fits your vehicle like a glove.

So, what should look for in a great set of tires? There’s a lot to keep track of and for the typical buyer, it can all feel very overwhelming. That said, there are a few key factors that you can use to find the perfect set of tires.

One thing you should consider when buying tires is what you plan to use them for. For instance, most of our local drivers have to take on the rough Wisconsin winter. Between the rain, snow, and ice, sometimes you need something a little stronger than your typical street tire. In this case, we’d suggest that local drivers opt for an all-weather tire, which is better equipped to take on ice and snow.

Another thing to consider is the load index. The load index designates the amount of weight your tires can support. If you plan to do any heavy lifting or want to use your vehicle for towing, you should select tires with a high load index.

Finally, we urge our customers to consider their speed rating before purchasing tires. The speed rating is the amount of heat and friction that your tires can endure from the pavement. Tires with a high-speed rating are a great pick for performance cars and drivers who want to push their car to the limit.

At Van Horn Nissan of Sheboygan, tires are our specialty and we’ll go above and beyond to provide you with the perfect set. When you visit our Nissan dealership, you can expect only the best customer service.
