Consider that fact for a moment and then let these sobering statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration sink in. There were 13 million crashes involving vehicles last year, including 1.7 million that resulted in injuries and more than 32,000 that had fatalities.

Indeed, the importance of quality tires is imperative to your safety while driving and making sure that you’re purchasing the right tires for your vehicle is something that should be taken extremely seriously.

Fortunately, you don’t need to look far for advice when it comes to replacing your tires. All you need to do is find an expert, such as those at Moore Tires.

The experienced staff at Moore Tires recognizes that patrons could be overwhelmed when it comes to selecting the right tires for their vehicle. That’s why they provide knowledgeable advice and give customers security and peace of mind that they are having the proper tires installed.

Moore Tires features a variety of different tires from top quality brands, including Bridgestone, Firestone, Michelin and more.

Most experts would agree that your replacement tires should meet the same specifications of your original tires. Once you’ve gotten that taken care of, you can consider different priorities, including price, performance, wear and longevity. Your driving style is something that should be considered as well, and that’s something you can share with the technicians at Moore Tires to ensure that you’ll meet your personal needs.

It should also be understood that getting new tires isn’t the end of your maintenance duties. Ensuring you have proper four-wheel alignment and having your tires rotated at the proper intervals is imperative to the life of the tires and your safety.
