September 7, 2007, Newsletter Issue #53: Replacing Existing Tires

Tip of the Week

For those who simply want to put in an order for tires they already have, there's no need for Internet searches on tire sizes, or consulting the owner's manual. Simply check the side of your tire. You will see a series of letters and numbers that looks something-not exactly-like this: "P195/65R15".
This, plus the brand name listed on the tire, will tell your dealer or mechanic everything necessary to get you an identical set of tires to match the ones you are replacing. It's that simple! If your dealer asks for additional information, write down what they ask for and consult your tire once more. They may want you to consider a different type of tire based on availability of the tires you need, or their current tire sales.
