At Van Horn Budget Auto we’re proud to have earned a reputation for being the leading provider of used cars for the local Plymouth, WI area. That said, we’re also equipped to help our customers find the right tires for their vehicle.

Tire buying can be intimidating, and not just because there are so many different choices. Your tires are an essential component to your vehicle and purchasing the wrong ones can have some pretty serious consequences. Fortunately, we’re here to walk you through the process so you can roll away on a set that matches your needs, your vehicle, and your drive style.

One of the most important factors to be aware of when purchasing a new set of tires is the load index. The load index designates the weight your tires can handle. Tires with a high load index tend to be a great fit for SUVs, trucks, and anyone hoping to haul plenty of cargo.

Another thing to consider is the speed rating of the tire. The speed rating of a tire determines the amount of friction and heat that the tire can withstand. Not only that, the speed rating can make up the difference between a standard street tire and a performance tire tempered for high-speed driving. If you’re the owner of a performance vehicle, or simply love the feel of high-speed driving, you should probably purchase tires with a substantial speed rating.

Regardless if you’re looking for heavy duty tires for your SUV, or a set of high-speed ready performance tires, our service team at Van Horn Budget Auto can point you in the right direction. We’re passionate about customer service, and will ensure that you leave our dealership 100% satisfied.
