About 255/70-16 Tires
As you round the last turn before your street, your Chevy Silverado skids across the wet pavement, and the tires squeal as they struggle to find traction. You probably need new 255/70-16 tires, as insufficient tread can cause dangerous situations on the road. In fact, the 1/16-inch rule about tread does not apply to special conditions, such as wet asphalt. To be safe on the road in inclement weather, your tires need at least 1/8-inch tread for rain and 1/5-inch tread for snow. Additionally, if you have forgotten regular maintenance, such as tire rotation, you might need to replace your 255/70-16 tires sooner than otherwise. Fortunately, the vast inventory of tires available from sellers on eBay ensures that you do not have to drive in danger. When buying used 255/70-16 tires, determine how much tread is left on the rubber to decide whether they are appropriate for your use. The less tread that is available, the fewer miles you will get from them. The tread pattern, strength, and speed rating are also important when buying tires for your truck or SUV. Consider all-season tires if you want to be able to drive through any weather, or go with mud tires or off-road tires if you like to get off the highway now and again.
