In the previous blog post, we shared information about when to change your seasonal tires, the difference between winter tires and seasonal tires, and today we want to share information that will help you decide if what you need is a tire changeover or tire swap.
Here are some definitions:
- Tire changeover: Requires one set of wheels and two sets of tires, and involves keeping your existing wheels while only switching out the rubber tires.
- Tire swap: Requires two sets of wheels and two sets of tires, and involves replacing both the wheels and tires on your vehicle.
Important that the service you choose will depend if you have a set of winter tires on winter wheels, and of course, your current budget.
We comment about this because although the two options can be done in any vehicle, the money required to invest in one or the other service will vary considerably.
For example, many vehicle owners have chosen to purchase a separate set of winter wheels, since while it represents a considerable investment at the moment, this will save you a few dollars in the service of changing seasonal tires that you should do every year.
Instead, if your tires are already on their own set of wheels, you’ll want to book a swap as they are removed and kept together as a unit while your set of all-season tires and wheels are reinstalled. This service is usually faster and will cost less.
Schedule your appointment with us and don’t worry! At the shop, our certified technicians will not only make sure that the change is made correctly but will also check and advise you on the general condition of your tires before alignment.
