If you’re wondering whether new SUV tires are worth the splurge, there are a few ways to look at it. First things first, if you’re tires are old and worn out, or if they seem to have unsafe handling characteristics, then yes, it’s obviously worth the expense of getting new tires. 


Your tires are the only thing connecting you to the road, so they’re a crucial safety item not only for you and your passengers but also for everyone else in McKinney, TX who’s on the road with you. Don’t ignore tire punctures, uneven tire wear, or poor tire performance.


The truth is, purchasing new tires for your SUV should never really be considered as a splurge. The only time that would be the case is if you’re someone who collects wheels the way some people collect shoes, or if your current tires are performing well but you just want something new for the sake of being new. Otherwise, buying tires for your SUV should usually considered a necessity.

And yes, sometimes even if your current tires don’t need to be replaced but aren’t performing up to your expectations, then a new set of tires can certainly be worth it. Or if you’ve decided to start using your SUV for more off-road adventures rather than highway and city miles, then upgrading to a nice set of all-terrain tires can absolutely be worth the expense. The same is true if you have an SUV previously used for off-road driving but only use it for commuting now.


What is the best tire for an SUV?

The age-old question of what tire is best for an SUV has an age-old answer: It depends. There are so many factors to take into account that there really is no “best” overall tire, but there can be a best tire for your SUV specifically. Before you decide what tire is best for you, it’s important to ask yourself a few questions:


What weather will I drive in?
Where will I drive my SUV?
What’s my tire budget?

What weather will I drive in?

If you’re only going to drive your SUV in and around McKinney, TX, then you can probably narrow your choices down to some of the great all-season touring tires available. Those will perform well in heat of summer, through downpours of rain, and through the chill of winter. 


The chance of accumulating snow in McKinney is so minimal that a dedicated winter tire would probably be considered a splurge, but if there is snow or ice on the ground, they’d certainly work better than any all-season tire. Because the chances of snow are so minimal, a good all-season tire will probably be your best bet, and if you’re concerned about the occasional patch of ice or dusting of snow you might encounter, then consider all-weather all-season tires with the 3PMSF (three-peak mountain snowflake) symbol. That symbol means they’re able to handle severe snow, although a true winter tire or chains would still be required if you’re heading to any snow-covered mountains for winter fun.


Where will I drive my SUV?

Let’s face it. Most SUV owners, even those with 4x4 and AWD SUVs, tend to drive mostly on the paved roads around McKinney, TX. For those SUV owners, the same all-season touring tires mentioned above would be ideal. They’ll get you through most weather conditions with confidence, they often deliver tens of thousands of miles before needing to be replaced, and most will offer a quiet, comfortable ride with good overall driving performance.


If you spend a lot of time on trails or other off-road adventures, or your priority is on off-road performance rather than quiet and supple road manners, then you’ll want to focus on all-terrain tires. As an added bonus, all-terrain tires will usually be more than sufficient for just about any weather conditions you may come across, whether at home in McKinney, TX or out in the wild.


What’s my tire budget?

Once you’ve decided on your driving priorities, the final thing to consider is your tire budget. There’s a wide range of tire choices regardless of whether you’re looking at on-road or off-road tires for your SUV. Premium tires from BFGoodrich, Bridgestone, Michelin, and Pirelli will generally deliver technically advanced features and top-of-the-line performance along with great mileage warranties.


Should you stretch your tire budget for a premium brand if you just need a good tire you can rely on for day-to-day driving or occasional off-road fun? Not necessarily. We’re lucky enough to live in a time when competition between tire manufacturers is stiff, so that means you have plenty of great choices regardless of budget. Tires from Americus, Ironman, Uniroyal, and many other brands are sure to meet your demands, no matter what your needs are.
