Tires 101: Understanding Sizes & Options

When you think of car safety and your children, what comes to mind? For us moms, it’s probably car seats. But what about something as seemingly basic as tires? After all, they are your vehicle’s point of contact with the road, and every move you make in the car—from braking to steering to accelerating—is transmitted to the road by your tires.
