As a leading Ford dealership in the Hartford area, we understand that many of our customers visit us to purchase tires. Your tires are one of the most essential components of your vehicle as they maintain a source of traction on the road. At the same time, your tires are responsible for supporting the total weight of your vehicle and everyone inside.

As a result, it is incredibly important that you purchase tires that not only match your vehicle but your drive style as well. One of the many things to take note of when purchasing a new set of tires is the load index or max weight capacity that your tires can endure. A tire with a higher load index is often a great pick for SUVs and pickups designed for hauling large amounts of cargo.

On the other hand, having a tire with an appropriate speed rating can play a huge role in the performance of the tire. Your tire’s speed rating determines how much friction your tire can handle. Tires with a high-speed rating often work great in performance-level vehicles that expect the most out of their tires.

No matter what kind of tire you’re looking for the tire experts in our Ford parts center are here to point you in the right direction. When you visit Van Horn of Oconomowoc you can expect only the best in customer service.
