Are cheap truck tires any good?
Budget truck tires often have reduced performance. They are less able to withstand heavy loads and are not as resistant to wear and tear as their peers. That is why you should not always choose the cheapest truck tires that appear at the top of our price list. Instead, look for the best value for money. However, your budget remains important, and that is why we are committed to help you find the price that suits your wallet!
How to choose the right tires for my truck?
Pick your truck tire according to the axle
Each axle has its own type of tire! There are three main types of axles: the steer axle, the drive axle, and the trailer axle. The tires mounted on these axles are affected differently by load and rolling resistance stresses, depending on their position on the vehicle. Consequently the tread patterns of truck tires vary: the ones on the drive axle usually have a higher tread pattern than the other tires.
Steer axle tires
The steer axle is located at the first position at the front of the truck. It enables the wheels to steer themselves in the direction the truck is going. For this type of axle, you need to install “S” (Steer) tires, also called “F” (Front). With S truck tires, you will be able to steer your vehicle over the miles with a proper load capacity.
Drive axle tires
Right behind the steer axle is the drive axle, located at the second position of the vehicle. The drive axle tires have a “D” (Drive) tread pattern. Drive tires will be able to support the weight of your trailer without any problems.
Trailer axle tires
The trailer axle is located at the back of the trailer, hence the name. The tires installed on this type of axle are then driven by the movement of the truck and support the weight of the trailer in addition to the other wheels. Make sure you mount “T” tires (Trailer) on this axle. Their greater load and speed ratings enable the truck to support heavy loads and drive a good mileage, significant criteria when you tow a trailer during hours or even days.
Please note that you can also mount “A” or “Z” (All-position) tires on all three types of axle. They are made to fit any position on the truck but may have lower performance than the S, D and T tires. In any case, there is one golden rule: make sure that you install tires with the same tread pattern on each axle!
Choose your truck tires considering the driving conditions
If the type of axle is paramount when choosing a commercial truck tire, so is the use you will make of your tires. Whether you drive freight and construction trucks or buses, each type of vehicle needs tires suited to the driving conditions. From long haul tires, to on/off-road tires or urban tires, there is a tire for every trucker!
Truck long-haul tires
Let’s drive on endless highways across Canada and even beyond the frontiers with the long-haul tires! Mainly made for 18-wheelers, tractor-trailers and big rigs that often carry freight and cargo loads over many miles, this type of tire is also designed to withstand wear and face rolling resistance. When you choose long-haul tires, pay attention to their fuel efficiency to save money and respect the environment. From Vancouver to Winnipeg and from Toronto to Montreal, these tires will take you anywhere!
Truck regional tires
When you have to drive shorter distances, truck regional tires are the perfect match! They can cope with regular accelerations and stops while being resistant over the time and providing great handling. So if you have a semi-trailer, a tanker truck or similar, regional tires will go wherever you go.
Urban tires for trucks
Urban tires are ideal for heavy-duty vehicle travel in the city. Whether you drive a bus or a garbage truck, they can deal with the many stops you will make to pick up passengers or collect waste. Benefiting from reinforced flanks, urban tires are also designed to face curbing. With the urban tires, you and your passengers will no longer have to worry about your safety!
On/off-road and construction tires
As the name suggests, these tires are very versatile! Whether you want to drive on the road or on steeper soils like dirt and gravel, these tires will not let you down. The dump truck tires are especially subject to these off-road driving constraints and therefore have excellent traction and a tough casing to face cuts and tears.
Truck winter tires
You have to travel on snow-capped roads in British Columbia or Quebec? Do not forget to mount winter tires on your truck! Marked with “M+S” or with the “3PMSF” symbol, they are designed to provide you a better vehicle maneuverability, a great braking capacity and an increased driving comfort during winter. Be careful, some provinces in Canada make snow tires compulsory. Therefore, always make sure you have a look at the applicable law before you hit the road!
What are the best truck tire brands in Canada?
Where can I get my commercial truck tires mounted near me?
After you have chosen your truck tires on Tirecomp.ca, you will have to get them installed. You will find lists of partner installers directly on the tire dealers’ websites. However, be aware that most of the installers are equipped to mounting tires on regular cars but not necessarily on trucks. In addition, mounting rates vary from one garage to another and are not the same depending on whether you want to equip a construction truck or a big rig. You will therefore need to contact the installer beforehand in order to check whether they can mount your tires and give you a quote.
