My working career revolved around commercial trucks and commercial truck tires. I have purchased, studied, tested and sold many truck tire brands, styles and applications including light truck, industrial and earthmover tires. It seems that there was rubber in my veins from the very beginning.

I want to share some ideas and thoughts about locating and purchasing tires on line.

Finding the best deal on truck tires using the internet is becoming easier than ever to accomplish. From finding the correct recommendations based on our personal tire use experience and the very best price on those recommended tires, the internet can provide us choices in our tire purchases.

Of course we all know about the popular online auction websites, such as eBay. Here we will also talk about some new and exciting ways that the information age is making it easier to connect with the people, information and goods that interest us.

Online auctions are a great way to find something in a hurry. Whether you’re looking for a brand new item or a used one, popular auction houses are likely to carry whatever it is that you’re in the market for.

Particularly with brand new and popular items, you’ll notice that there are a number of auction items and unique sellers every day of the week. There’s a very good chance that you’ll be able to find a deal on truck tires that you can be happy with.

Beyond internet auction websites, there are consumer interest groups where you can find out more about which truck tires will last the longest and historically have performed the best. At these same Websites you’ll be able to also learn something about which sellers have the best rates or return policies.

And now for something completely different: Chances are you’ve used internet search engines to search for particular products. The search results are lists of web pages that may or may not actually contain information about the item or items that you’re searching for.

Google is taking another stab at the whole ball of wax by launching Google Base, which allows people to submit any item, piece of information or service to their database. These objects will then turn up in other areas of Google, from Froogle to search results to even Google Earth.

Theoretically, the more ‘tag’ and classification information that users input about their given Google Base item, the more likely it is to turn up in meaningful ways, connected to other people and search results that are similar or looking for similar things. Only time will tell how this experiment works out, but you may soon be finding truck tires via Google Base and saving a buck or two on decreased cost of business overhead that sellers on eBay have to deal with, for example.

Now, have fun on your truck tire adventure!
