There are a few things that you should not do when you are buying new tires for your SUV. One of those is not to start looking at the price of the tires as the main decision factor. If you have invested in an SUV, it must have been for some reason and for most of those reasons a cheap tire is then not the way to go when buying tires. A cheap tire might end up being more costly in the long run. So you need to first define what you want the tire to do for you. The most important one is probably being able to get from place A to place B, but chances are, you are forgetting a few requirements.
I assume you also want to get back and forth safely. Safety is difficult to put a price on, but you definitely don’t want to save some money and jeopardize your safety or the safety of other people. A cheaper tire tends to wear out faster and tends to have worse performance in terms of handling, breaking distance and ability to prevent aquaplaning. All these are important functions of a tire that you should not forget when you are considering a cheap tire. Also the wear will most certainly be higher for a cheaper tire, so you will need to buy a new set earlier than you would if you go for a better quality tire.
A high quality suv all season tires will also have a lower rolling resistance, which allows the tires to roll easier. This translates into better fuel efficiency and further between stops at the gas station to fill up your car. We all know this has become a quite expensive ordeal. You can easily save money as you drive by choosing a better tire with lower roll resistance.
So when you think that you are saving money when buying tires, just because you got a good price, you will more than likely to end up paying more in the end and you will also be less safe. Most people would immediately pay more for a tire if they thought through all this before spending their money.
