The Fallacy of Buying Cheap Tires

Are Cheaper Tires Really Cheaper? Find Out at LaFontaine Toyota in Dearborn, MI

LaFontaine Toyota is your source for high-quality Toyota tires in Wayne County, Michigan. We get lots of questions about tires, and we want to help you make the best choice for your Toyota. One of the most common questions we get is: can I save money by getting cheap tires from a discount brand? While you may save money in the short run, the truth is that name-brand tires can actually help you save over the life of your vehicle — and they usually provide a better driving experience in the meantime!

Benefits of Choosing Name-Brand Tires

  • Comfort: Tires from quality name brands are designed with comfort and quality in mind. These tires usually provide a smoother, quieter ride than cheaper tires from discount brands.
  • Longevity: The tires we carry at LaFontaine Toyota are designed to be durable, giving you more miles before they wear out when compared to discount brands. This can also affect the cost: if you’re replacing tires more often, you’re not saving as much in the long run.
  • Fuel Economy: Your tires have a surprisingly large effect on your vehicle’s fuel economy. If you buy cheap tires, you may find that you’re filling up your tank more often than if you choose name-brand tires like the ones we carry at LaFontaine Toyota. In the long run, this can end up costing you considerably more, despite the initial savings from the cheaper tire.
  • Control: The tires at LaFontaine Toyota are impressively responsive, designed to deliver a precision driving experience that you simply won’t get with other tires.
