There are a lot of companies offering car tyres today, but if you are really looking to get the best, the Michelin tyre company must be your number one choice. However, there are so many Michelin tyres (on Norwegian the word is dekk) available that to choose the best among them is really hard task. Therefore in that article I will present you with the basics of buying tyres and I really hope that you will use that information. Here are 3 simple steps to choose the best Michelin tyre for your car:
1. First, you should know what the exact size of tyres you are looking for is. That way you will be able to make informed car tyre purchase. The main place, where you should look for the size of the tyres, is at the manual you had received with your car. Furthermore, if you do not have a manual, you can look at the door jamb of the driver’s door, the glove compartment or inside the fuel hatch. Remember that each one of the car manufacturers should place information about the size of tires you need, so you will only have to find it.
2. After that answer the question “What type of Michelin tyres you need?” Although it sounds really hard thing to do, you just need to imaging in what will be the worst conditions you might need to drive. When some of the retailers ask you what type of tyres you need, usually he means types such as winter and summer. In addition, you may also consider what your performance criteria are, like for example whether you need better cornering capability on dry roads or more traction on wet ones. Remember that the more you tell the Michelin tyre retailer, the better tires you will receive.
3. Finally, when you buy Michelin tyres you should receive a warranty and also a registration car for the Department of Transportation. In the warranty booklet, you will learn a lot of information about how you should take care of the tyres you had bought and also how to maintain them. Therefore, make sure that you require that document from the tyre retailer, because in case of fabric defect, for example you will not be able to get the Michelin tyres repaired or replaced with new ones.
