Despite being one of the most important components of your vehicle, most people don’t know much about their tires. Here at National Tire Wholesale, we believe that more attention should be payed to these amazing pieces of technology. In particular, here are ten facts that we believe everyone should know about those little rubber doughnuts you rely on every day.

Rubber to the Road
Everyone knows your tires are your only contact to the road surface, but have you ever thought about how much of your tires actually stick to the road?

Making the World Go ‘Round
When purchasing new or used tires, size is the first issue you want to address and we are talking about more than "Will it fit in my wheel well?"
The size of your tires affects mileage, braking, wear and tear on your power train and accurate speedometer readings. Installing the right size replacement tires on your car or truck is an important step to achieving the performance the engineers who designed your vehicle intended.
