Tires are one of, if not the most important component on your vehicle. They grip the road to keep you going in the direction intended. Ensuring proper air pressure, and regular alignments along with regular tire rotating and balancing will ensure you will get the most out of your tires. But sooner or later it will come time to replace your tires and you will be faced with two decisions. The first decision is the type of tires you purchase. The second being where to get them installed.
At the Karl Chevrolet service department here in New Canaan CT, We suggest choosing OEM approved tires. These are typically the tires your vehicle came with out of the factory, and there are many reasons to choose OEM approved. For starters, OEM approved tires ensure a smooth and comfortable ride. Since these are the tires Chevrolet tested and tuned your vehicle with, you will not have to worry about a less comfortable ride. The other major reason you’ll want to choose OEM approved tires is due to safety.
Since your vehicle was developed with the tires it currently has fitted to it, the vehicle was produced and tuned to ensure maximum safety and grip for the tires installed. Choosing a non-OEM approved tire for your vehicle may hinder grip and may jeopardize the ability for your vehicle to perform as safely as possible. Take the time to do your research, you can find a full line of OEM approved and optional tires by visiting our online tire center where you can find the tires that are right for your Chevrolet AND schedule an appointment to have them installed.
