Q: What tires should I get for a 2006 Mazda tribute?

asked by on

I was looking for good tires that don't cost to much.

My car has 159999 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Tires are a very subjective topic. It is very important to start your research for tires with asking yourself a few pertinent questions. How many miles will the tires need to last? What is an acceptable price? What kind of driving conditions will the tires be used in? Do you drive in a more spirited manner and need something a little more sporty, with a little more grip? Do you live in an area with twisty roads, or are you in an area that is all straight roads? We all would like to buy tires that will last 100,000 miles, have excellent traction in both wet and dry conditions, and cost next to nothing, but the best we can do is find a tire that is a happy compromise with all things considered. There just simply is no one perfect tire for everyone. I would suggest looking at some tire websites and doing comparisons on different brands and styles. There are ratings on the sides of tires that will suggest their longevity, heat range, and several other factors. You can also contact a certified mechanic, like the mobile mechanics at YourMechanic.com, to get more detailed information on tire cost and installation prices.
