Tire FAQs in Des Moines, Iowa

Frequently Asked Questions: Answered by our Experts

How do you know what tire fits my vehicle?

Original Equipment tire sizes shown in search results for particular vehicles are determined based on the best information currently available from vehicle manufacturers and from manual inspection of new vehicles as they are released. Many vehicles have optional trim levels/packages that include different tire sizes.

Since variations based on options or vehicle manufacturer changes may determine the Original Equipment tire size on your vehicle, always verify the size matches the tire size for your vehicle (usually found in the door jamb, glove box lid or gas cap door) or in the Owner's Manual.

What is the proper air pressure for my tires?

Proper tire air pressure is determined by the vehicle manufacturers and is set to best fine-tune a tire’s capabilities to their specific vehicle make and model. The vehicle manufacturer's pressure recommendation can be found on the vehicle's tire information placard label, as well as in the vehicle owner's manual.

Why can’t I use only two winter tires?

If you were to put winter tires on only the front or rear of your vehicle, you would create a vehicle with a split personality. By installing four winter tires, you maintain the most balanced and controlled handling possible in all winter driving conditions. It is imperative to keep the same level of traction at all four corners of the car; otherwise, the full benefits of ABS or traction control systems will be lost.
