Buy Tires for 2018 Buick Encore

Shopping for tires can be overwhelming, but not when you're equipped with the right information. That's why you should head our way when it's time to put new tires on your  2018 Buick Encore. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for Buick tires in all sizes, for all seasons. Whether you need a tire that's designed to improve fuel economy, take tight corners, or handle off-road terrain, you'll find affordable tires that get the job done.

View the tires Buick recommends for 2018 Encores, plus useful info about Buick Encore tire size, speed rating, and tire pressure. Take it from one of our tire technicians, Brianna: "You want to find the correct size for your tire. It matters in alignments and keeping your vehicle driving the way it’s supposed to.”

Apart from finding the right tire size, you also want to consider a handful of other factors when buying new Buick Encore tires like where and how you drive, and what tire brand you trust most. If you live in south Texas, you probably won't need heavy-duty winter tires. In Colorado, though, there's a good chance you'll want Buick Encore snow tires for a good portion of the year, and maybe even all-season tires for year-round comfort and versatility.

When evaluating your driving conditions, think about where you live (countryside vs. city vs. mountains) and the kind of unexpected weather you're likely to experience. Drivers in states that fully experience all four seasons often buy two sets of tires: one set for winter, one set for summer. That way, they can maximize their Buick Encore's performance during both seasons. Other drivers prefer to purchase one all-season set to limit trips to the tire shop and make sure their vehicle is prepared in the rain, sleet, snow, or sun!

Your personal driving style is the next factor to consider. Do you enjoy pushing your Buick Encore to the limits? Going where no vehicle has gone before? If you're an avid off-roader who yearns to pioneer new paths, you have very different tire needs than a highway commuter who doesn't hit the hills very often. You'll want a tire that can handle gravel, sand, stone, and dirt. A larger tire with stiff sidewalls and a wide tread pattern can help prevent punctures and encourage stability on bumpy roads. But if you're comfortable in the city and suburbs, a Buick Encore tire that offers comfort, stability, and a quiet ride could be just what you need. Talk to a tire technician at Firestone Complete Auto Care for help choosing the best tire for you, or start shopping for Buick Encore tires online. You're only a click or two away from a new set of 2018 Buick Encore tires.

Good Tire Brands for Buick Encores

Firestone Complete Auto Care has plenty of good Buick Encore tire brands for you to choose from. Two of them are Firestone and Bridgestone. Firestone tires for Buick Encores always deliver! Harvey Firestone founded the Firestone Tire & Rubber Company in Akron, Ohio in 1900. He was a boundary-pusher from the get-go. Firestone recognized the overwhelming potential for automobile tires, so he started making and testing farm, truck, and passenger tires. The company can be credited for introducing the first all-rubber, non-skid tire in 1908! Firestone Tires has been passionate about leading the industry since day one, thanks to Harvey Firestone's industrious spirit. Firestone now makes about 8,000 different tires for all kinds of vehicles — including tires for 2018 Buick Encores.

Bridgestone is another smart move for Buick Encore tires. In 1931, Shojiro Ishibashi founded The Bridgestone Tire Company Ltd. in Japan. In 1990, the company merged with The Firestone Tire & Rubber Company. Today, Bridgestone Tires has more than 55,000 employees and 50 production facilities throughout the Americas. The company is a global leader in rubber products and tire technology, providing exceptional service, tires, and more to drivers around the world. As Shojiro Ishibashi said, Bridgestone is dedicated worldwide to "serve society with superior quality."

Questions About 2018 Buick Encore Tires

Inspecting and caring for your tires is one of the best ways to help them last. Get answers to common Buick Encore tire questions and learn how to care for new tires.

  • Is Buick tire inflation important? A small decrease in tire pressure can have a big impact on your driving. Maintaining proper tire pressure can help improve braking time, increase fuel economy, and boost tire lifespan.
  • Why are there numbers on the side of my Buick Encore tires? Your tire sidewall gives you information about load carrying capacity, speed rating, treadwear, traction, and tire size. Talk to one of our tire technicians to learn how to read the numbers on your tire!
  • Can I check the tread depth on my Buick tires at home? All you need is a penny. Hold the penny so that Abraham Lincoln is facing you, then place your penny into a tread groove upside down. If you can see the top of Abe’s head, your tread is shallow and it might be time for new Buick Encore tires.
