The season for tire change is fast approaching as spring comes closing up. The winter tires will need to be removed and summer or alternatively all season tires needs to be installed.
This may mean for some of us new tires needs to be purchased and fitted for the season.
Choosing the right tire for the car is one of the most important purchase you will ever make. There is a new phenomenon which is manufacturer endorsed tires, this is a relatively new thing and mostly European manufacturers started doing it.
The question remains, could you or should you use manufacturer endorsed tires only on your BMW or Mercedes? The short answer is no, the manufacturer endorsed tires are a safe bet if you want to follow their guide lines but logic says it is physically impossible to test every single tire on every model on every make, so for the very reason I recommend to consult a licensed experienced technician with decades of tire know how to select the best tire for your fine automobile.
You should never base your tire purchase on price or impulse only. Be cautious with large chains whom only have a wasted interest to move their stock tires and operate at volume sales at very thin margins.
The rule of thumb as always, you get what you pay for. Same goes for advice, online information also should be treated with caution since most people rating tires are by no means experts on the field of tire evaluation.
