New, Used Tires for AWD and 4 Wheel Drive Vehicles
What do you do when you need to replace tires on your AWD or 4 wheel drive vehicle?
Can you buy just one tire or do you have to replace all four tires at the same time?
Are four wheel, front wheel, and AWD vehicles the same as far as tires go?
These are frequent questions we answer for customers, and they bring up some really good points. Many people assume a tire is a tire. However, there are very careful considerations you need to make based on the vehicle you have and the tire(s) that need replacing. Vehicles with all time 4 wheel drive are different than select 4 wheel drive (4×2). Additionally, vehicles that have 2 wheel drive or 4 wheel drive options are different too.
If you have All Wheel Drive (AWD) or all time 4 wheel drive (4×4), it important to make sure not only that all four tires match Brand-wise, but that they also match tread depth-wise. The TireZoo is very experienced with helping people replace only 1, 2, or 3 tires at a time. We have a very large inventory of new and used tires that we can almost always find replacement tires that match your remaining tires’ brand and tread.
Here is a video that does a great job explaining why it’s important to select the correct replacement tire.
