If you’re looking for a Volvo parts team that believes in the importance of having a great set of tires, our tire experts at Fields Volvo Cars Northfield ought to be your first pick. We understand that tires are central to your driving experience and can show you how to find the perfect set for your vehicle.

Whether you're sat behind the wheel of a fully-loaded 2019 Volvo XC90 or sporty and sleek 2019 Volvo S60, you’ll want to purchase a set of tires that match your drive style and your lifestyle. For instance, if you’re an avid fan of the great outdoors, then we suggest either investing in all-weather or off-road tires. These tires are far more durable and versatile than your typical street tire and can offer superior traction and handling on various terrain.

While the type of tire matters, there are two factors that can contribute to their performance, the load index and the speed rating. The load index is the amount of weight that your tires can withstand. So, if you’re driving a full-sized SUV, and haul plenty of cargo, we often suggest tires with a high load index. On the other hand, the speed rating designates the amount of heat and friction that your tires can withstand. We often suggest high speed-rating tires to drivers who are a big fan of going fast and having expert handling and performance when hitting the pavement.

Few Volvo dealerships provide services quite as comprehensive as we do. Regardless if you’re looking for a new set of tires, or are hoping to take home a brand new Volvo car, our team at Fields Volvo Cars Northfield have got you covered. Our goal is to have you leave our dealership completely satisfied.
