How to Shop for New Tires
Is it time to buy new tires? You’ve come to the right spot! Alaska Tire Service is Anchorage, Alaska’s top tire shop for tire sales. Various conditions affect how you should approach buying new tires, such as your driving habits and the environment in which you live and drive. This will help you determine which type to purchase, such as winter, all-season, performance, all-weather, run-flat, off-road, or all-terrain (plus many more). An important factor to heed is the tire code, the number/letter combination located on the side of your tire, i.e., P 215/65R15 95H M+S. This relays the tire size and capability. If your current set of wheels is damaged or worn, we recommend opting for new rims while purchasing new tires or buying a different type of tire from what you had previously. Wheels need to be bought to OEM specifications considering elements like width, load rating, offset, and backspace. We carry a fine selection of new tires and custom wheels and employ a team of tire sales specialists that is always happy to lend a hand.
