Things to consider when you purchase tires for your vehicle:
1.Your safety – Does the tire offer features that may enhance your vehicles handling capabilities, not only for you, but for all of the driving members of your family (some of whom may not have your driving skills)?
2.Does the tire construction offer features that are less than, equal to or exceeding those found on the vehicle’s original equipment tires?
3.How long do you intend to keep the vehicle, and are the tires rated or guaranteed to exceed your mileage expectations?
4.Have you considered the “Price” versus “Cost” issue?
Price = What you pay for the tire including new valve stems, tire mounting and balancing, tire disposal and any other tire related fees.
Cost = What it costs you to drive on your tires.
An Example = You drive 18,000 miles per year
A set of four of tire “A” costs $590 and the tires deliver 50,000 miles.
Take the cost $590 divided by the miles delivered 50,000 = $.0118 per mile –
times 18,000 miles per year equates to an annual operating cost of $212.40.
A set of four of tire “B” costs $690 and the tires deliver 70,000 miles.
Take the cost $690 divided by the miles delivered 70,000 = $.0986 per mile –
times 18,000 miles per year equates to an annual operating cost of $172.49.
The life of your tires (70,000 miles / 18,000 miles per year equals 3.9 years of
use times a projected annual savings of $39.91 equates to a total savings of
$159.65 which is greater than the $100 price difference.
