Introducing Orozco’s Tire Sales
Tires are a vehicle’s direct connection to the road, but for the unprepared, choosing a new set of tires can be daunting. On the other hand, making the wrong choice can be haunting: the wrong tires can be uncomfortable, noisy, and even dangerously inadequate in performance. But to the untrained eye, tires look practically identical. Every manufacturer claims that its tires are the best. And all of them cost more than the average driver wants to spend (nothing).
Do you really need to replace your tires? You can determine whether or not you need new tires based on performance, tread depth, and age. The general consensus is that, if a tire is more than six years old, even if it has never been used and its tread looks fine, its performance very possibly has been compromised by the rubber aging. Get newer tires if you can. To tell when a set of tires was manufactured, look at the last four digits of a series that begins with “DOT” on the sidewall of the tire. The last four digits are the week and year that a tire was made. For example, 2202 means that the tire was manufactured in the 22nd week of 2002.
If you were happy with the performance of your old tires, there’s nothing wrong with buying the exact same model that you had. Most car companies try to choose tires that suit the cars they produce. However, OEM tires, especially from a dealership, may be much more expensive than other brands. In the interest of saving money, many drivers choose to replace their worn OEM tires with aftermarket tires.
If you choose not to go with the OEM tire, both online tire stores and the tire manufacturer may suggest other models that should perform similarly to the OEM set.
If you want something new, you should consider the different types of tires and buy one which best suits your driving style, road conditions, and preferences. High performance tires may provide better performance and allow you to turn, stop, and accelerate faster, but may be noisier and cause a harsher ride. On the other hand, “touring” tires may make the ride softer, but not be as high-performing. All-season tires may provide adequate performance in most conditions but will be heavily outperformed by dedicated “summer” or winter tires, and “economy” tires may be cheap and noisy while not performing as well but provide better fuel economy. Used tires are not recommended and can be dangerous to drive on.

When you drive your car, there are two gauges that, no matter what, everybody pays attention to – your speedometer, and your gas gauge. Nobody wants to get a speeding ticket or run out of gas in the middle of nowhere. But what happens if your gas gauge isn’t reading your fuel level accurately? Sometimes, your gas gauge might get stuck or randomly move around, going up as your fuel level goes down. If your fuel gauge begins to malfunction without you noticing, you run the risk of running out of gas with no warning, leaving you stuck without a ride.
