Keep reading to learn more about choosing the right tires for your vehicle.

Which Ones Are Right For You?

We’ll start off by saying that when it comes to getting the right tires, you should always consult a professional. At Alaska Tire Service we pride ourselves in having experts in our shops who can provide thoughtful advice and find exactly what you need for your vehicle. But if you’re looking for a general guide on tire shopping we have some advice.

First, it’s of the utmost importance to establish where and when you’ll be driving. For example, if you have different vehicles for different seasons, or if you only use your car for summer trips, you might be able to just use summer tires. These are performance tires that are perfect for warm weather. But with that being said, if there’s any chance you’ll be driving in snow or ice, you would want to consider all-season tires at the least, and might even want to consider having both summer and winter tires.

We have a variety of different tires that are well-suited to driving in snow and ice, and they’ll keep you safer by providing better traction and control even when the conditions start to get bad. But these tires often shouldn’t and sometimes even can’t be used in warmer weather when there’s no snow or ice, and that’s not even considering that some areas have regulations against the use of winter tires in the spring and summer seasons.

If you’re ready to start shopping for the perfect set of summer tires, visit us at Alaska Tire Service. You’ll find our dealerships located in Anchorage and Eagle River, AK. We proudly serve all of Alaska. Whether you’re looking for Firestone Tires, Bridgestone Tires, or any other industry-leading brand, we’re confident we can help you find what you’re looking for.
