July 25, 2008, Newsletter Issue #99: Interpreting Consumer Reports

Tip of the Week

Reading consumer reports on new tire products can be very helpful if you know how to interpret them. If the reports address regular 'street-legal' new tire products, pay close attention to the reviews which duplicate actual street driving conditions rather than testing on a closed course. When you buy tires, you want to base your decision on tests that anticipate rain, rough roads, cold and hot conditions, start-and-stop city traffic, etc. A closed course with optimal conditions won't give accurate performance data on in-traffic driving or sudden weather changes peculiar to your area. It's important to make an informed choice when you buy tires; it's even more important to get the right data.
