Tire

The day-to-day grind puts tires to the ultimate test. Here are five all-season tires with top ratings for durability and comfort, even in extreme conditions.

  • Updated

Best all-terrain tire‌: Its saw-tooth tread and deep center grooves provide excellent off-road driving capabilities and improved wet and dry traction. The design isn’t overly bulky, which keeps noise down to a minimum when driving on freeways, while the 2,039-pound load capacity is ample for most SUVs. However, it doesn’t match the capability of a true winter tire. Available at Amazon

  • Updated

Best bang for your buck: Supplied in most sizes, this all-around option is great for most weather conditions — it isn’t the best on snow. It features visual alignment indicators to avoid irregular tire wear. The tread is designed using low-surface-abrasion technology for improved durability. It has excellent stability throughout the speed range with minimal road noise or vibration. Available at Amazon

  • Updated

Best snow tire: This tire is designed to remain flexible in freezing conditions with a unique multi-cell compound. Its microscopic bite particles and three-dimensional zigzag sipes combine to provide confident braking on ice and snow but is noisy on dry roads. It is available in sizes ranging from 15-18 inches, making it suitable for most midsize cars and light trucks. Available at Amazon

  • Updated

Best all-season tire: With high performance in various weather conditions, this tire is excellent for everyday use. The tread has large grooves and a combination of lateral and diagonal sipes for enhanced traction in snow and ice. It has an optimized profile for improved mileage and fuel consumption while reducing CO2 emissions. But its size options aren’t suitable for small cars. Available at Amazon

  • Updated

Best high-performance tire: This tire is designed for high-speed cornering and traction and offers excellent performance on wet roads. It delivers one of the shortest braking distances, along with dependable handling in light snow. Its speed rating of up to 150 mph is suitable for most performance cars. It has a 45,000-mile warranty. Available at Amazon

  • Updated

Best of the best: This all-around choice provides a comfortable ride in most weather conditions (performance is sub-par on snow or ice). With an 80,000-mile tread-life warranty, this is one of the most durable tires around. It features specialized rain grooves to increase hydroplane resistance and is available in 32 sizes, making it compatible with most cars and light vans. Available at Amazon

  • Updated

Based on the standard Ram 1500 light-duty pickup, the devilishly powerful TRX uses the same engine as Dodge’s Charger and Challenger Hellcats — a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 that produces 702 horsepower and 645 lb-ft of torque, capable of sprinting from zero to 60 mph in less than 4 seconds.

  • Updated

The Ford F-150 is completely redesigned for 2021, and it features improved interior materials, refreshed design and upgraded technology features. Along with those changes comes the latest version of the off-road-focused Ford Raptor.

Landscaping and gardening tools that are electric- or gas-powered may require maintenance or service before you use them this season. Electric tools like a cordless hedge trimmer will need to be charged fully prior to use. If the rechargeable battery doesn’t hold a charge as well as it used to, you may need to replace it. Gas-powered tools need their fluids and tires checked.

  • Updated

Occasionally driving your vehicle around the block will help keep the battery charged and in good health. It will also prevent rust from building up on the rotors, which if left unchecked could cause irreversible damage and will also prevent the tires from flat spotting. Flat spotting is when the rubber degrades quicker in one spot due to compression, which will cause an incurable vibration.

  • Updated

If your car will be sitting for a long period of time, the temperature may change and the tires can slowly lose pressure. For this reason, it’s a good idea to inflate your tires to the recommended air pressure, but do not exceed the maximum.
