Buying the Right Tires and Wheels in Fort Myers, Florida

February 11, 2024

Everyone in Fort Myers, Florida eventually replaces their tires, whether it's because they're worn out or they're just looking for something different. There are so many great tire choices in Fort Myers, it can be difficult to sort them out. Let's group the broad spectrum into several categories that will help in the selection process.

One category is often referred to as "summer tires". Summer tires are designed to be driven on the road when temperatures are generally above 45 degrees F (7 degrees C). Their tread design is optimized for traction on dry roads around Florida and they're also able to effectively displace water on rainy roads.

So if you live where its summer all year round, these tires will work well for you. If you like maximum performance in warm weather, but still live where it gets cold and snowy, you'll want to change your summer tires for winter tires as the weather starts to change.

There's a range of tires within the winter tire category. If you live where there's a lot of snow and ice, look for the mountain and snowflake icon that signifies a severe snow rating. If you have milder winters and still want a performance component, they make a winter tire for you as well.

For many people, an all-season tire is the answer. You will give up some of the performance at the extreme ends of the summer tire/ winter tire spectrum, but you will find a long wearing tire that gives both good highway performance and winter traction on our Fort Myers, Florida, roads.

Within the all-season category, there are many choices that your tire advisor at Tuffy Fort Myers (McGregor Blvd) can help you evaluate.
