Tires Questions Answered by Paula Raines »
Section: Tires
Q:  I've heard tires have speed ratings. Is this important for me to know?
A: 

Yes, speed ratings are important to know.  They will effect the way the car handles.  You want to replace tires with the same speed rating the car manufacturer recommends and you never want to have different speed ratings on your vehicle at one time.

Q:  When buying just two new tires, should they be put on the front or rear?
A: 

For years we have been told  that it was best if you were only replacing two new tires to put them on the front of the vehicle.  Now Goodyear recommends that if you are only replacing two tires to place them on the rear to prevent potential oversteering of the vehicle.  Thanks for the question.

Q:  I recently had my tires rotated on my SUV. It has tire pressure sensors that give an alert and also show all 4 tire pressures on a display when there is a tire problem. After tire rotation, how does the vehicle know that the tires have changed position?
A:  Each wheel has a sensor that the transmittor recognizes the position of.  When the position changes, the sensor has to be reactivated for the transmittor to recognize the new location.  This is done by using a scan tool designed specifically for that job.  Some vehicles can be reset without a scan tool by using onboard diagnostics through your drivers information center.  This is why most shops charge a fee to reset the sensors as some can take up to 30 minutes to reset.  Thanks for your question.

Q:  I hit a curb with my tires and they now have small nicks in them, I have been told they must be replaced. Is this correct?
A: 

I can't really tell you without seeing the tires.  It depends on how bad the nicks are on the tires.  I would recommend you come by and let one of our tire professionals take a look.
