When it comes to purchasing tires, a few important factors will help you decide which is best for you and your vehicle needs. Your driving habits and the type of vehicle you’re driving are two big things to consider. Weather should also be a key factor in your decision. When choosing the right tire for what you need, consider whether or not you live in an area where snowfall and winter conditions are expected, or an area where there is more rainfall.

Comfort and Handling

If you are looking for dependability, touring tires are an excellent choice for driving on wet or dry pavement. They offer a smooth, quiet ride.

Sports Car for Handling and Performance

Your best bet is high-performance tires, designed to be used at a higher speed in wet or dry weather conditions. These tires have a softer rubber compound built for the tighter grip necessary to take sharp corners.

A Pickup Truck or SUV

For light trucks to drive in challenging terrain on off-road conditions, durability and traction is what you need to look for. For on road, select SUV tires because of their comfort-tuned applications.

Commercial Vehicle

Select tires designed to handle driving through dirt, mud, potholes. Tires that are made for the more rugged conditions that your commercial vehicles contend with daily.

Winter Tires

Winter tires are made for cold, icy, wet, snowy weather. They are designed to grip for optimize handling and traction during the cold winter season.

All-Season Tires

All season tires support most road conditions and have a greater life in warm weather. These tires have a deep water channel for wet traction and a harder rubber compound.

Off-road Tires

Ideal for vehicles to drive off-road and limited to on-road. The tires have stiffer sidewalls for increased resistance to puncture while traveling off-road. Tread patterns are spaced wider to help remove mud buildup between the treads.

Select the tires that meet your needs. Think of the conditions you will be driving in on a regular basis when choosing a tire for your vehicle. An example is, Are you driving on often wet roads? Dry roads and warm weather? Snow? What performance you are looking for in regards to the weather or driving conditions?  Will you be driving off-road?  The better you know what you need, the better Paragon Motors can help you find the right tire for your vehicle.

    Paragon Motors was a delight. Not only did they give us the best price, but they actually fixed what was wrong. We had taken our car to another place first and they misdiagnosed the problem. Rick took it around the block and knew exactly what to do to get it... read more -

    Awesome, highly recommend. Very nice and accommodating. I had to leave my car there for a few days due to traveling. After they were done with the repair they phoned and asked if I'd like my car to be inspected for any other issues that needed to be addressed. -
