Considering tires within the overall cost of a vehicle

Posted on Thursday, February 14, 2013 at 10:59:38 AM

Car-shopping Americans are normally well-versed on their desired attributes for a new vehicle, including efficiency and horsepower, however, some automobiles require certain types of tires and can cost consumers more in the long run. If you have locked in auto financing with Home Loan Investment Bank, you should be aware of your price limit when heading to the dealership and remember to inspect the cars' tires more than just giving them a kick.

Standard
This tier of tire is arguably the most common among consumer vehicles, and provides car passengers with a smooth ride for up to 100,000 miles before the treads become too worn. 

Performance
These tires are considered a step up from the standard alternative, in both quality and price. These products are able to handle high speeds for a prolonged period of time and can typically be used for 60,000 miles before needing replacement.

Ultra-performance
This type of tire supposedly affords drivers a greater degree of performance and handling of the vehicle, but can be expensive and need frequent replacement. Automobiles that come with these tires installed, and require the same grade be used at all times, generally cost the most up front and in the long run.

Additionally, if purchasing pre-owned, it is a good idea for consumers who are watching their finances to pursue used car financing to facilitate the sale.
