Do I really need the 100 dollars tires or are the 40 dollars ones fine for my car?

Posted at: 2015-04-14 
I am trying to get new tires for my car and I am wondering if the 100 dollars tires are really necessary, and in what conditions will they be better than 40 dollars ones. I live in an area where there is no snow, although some rain, and I don t drive long distance a lot.

pricing is not always the best way to buy tires - tires have markings on the sidewalls:

Treadwear Rating

The treadwear grade is a comparative numerical rating based on the wear rate of the tire when tested under controlled conditions on a specified government test course. For example, a tire graded 200 would wear twice as well on the course as a tire graded 100. The rating increases in 20-point increments. It is important to note that the true performance of a tire depends upon the actual conditions of its use. Actual conditions may depart significantly from the test conditions due to variations in driving habits, service practices and differences in road characteristics and climates.

Traction Rating

The traction rating indicates the tire's ability to stop a vehicle moving straight forward on wet pavement. The ratings are AA, A, B, and C, with AA being the best.

Temperature Rating

The temperature rating indicates the tire's ability to effectively dissipate heat. The ratings range from A to C, with A being the best.

The $100 tires will generally last longer than the $40 tires.

There is absolutely nothing more important than having quality tires on your automobile. $40 tires may not only be unsafe they will also not last very long and you could be tire shopping again before you know it. Here, look up your automobile on tirerack.com. I bet you can find a good quality budget priced tire for your car that is still under $100.

$100 tires will last about 2.5x longer than $40 tires. They are $40 tires for a reason. Made cheaper with less durable materials, fewer belts, thinner sidewalls all resulting in lower load and speed ratings and tread life.

ask yourself, is your life worth $40 or $100 - your answer should be a lot more then both of them combined, get tires that will last & be made with high quality rubber materials for all seasons

The 100$ ones are probly better quality but if you really don't drive that much or there isn't any bad wether than you sould buy the 40 dollor ones.

Get the $100 ones they will last longer and they are safer.
