Tyre Tips & Advice


A common problem faced by customers who have never purchased new tyres before, is trying to figure out what type of tyre they need.

There are no definite answers about which tyre is perfect for any given person. It depends quite heavily on circumstance. Some important questions to ask yourself when considering which tyres to buy include:

  • Do you live in an area where it rains frequently or suffers extreme heat during the summer? (if you are in the UK, the chances of the latter option are pretty slim)
  • Do you live off the beaten track or in the middle of a city?
  • Do you do a lot of motorway driving or do you stick to country roads?

By answering these questions you are going a long way in working out which tyre is best for you.

Vehicle History

 On top of these questions, take into consideration the vehicle and whether or not you purchased it brand new, or second hand. If it was brand new, then the tyres that it came fitted with are likely to be a suitable replacement – especially if you were happy with them whilst driving on them.

However, if you purchased your vehicle second-hand you might find that the previous owner fitted tyres that were not the most appropriate. If you don’t want to take the risk of assuming the tyres currently on your car are correct, or if you want to talk to a tyre expert about which would be best for your car, get in touch with one of our tyre experts. They are always happy to help.

The Price of Tyres

 One other factor that holds a lot of sway when it comes down to choosing a product is the price. This is also true when people are shopping for new tyres. One good thing about the tyre industry is that money is not always a true indication of the quality or the performance of a tyre. You can pick up some fantastic tyres at low prices.

What Others Thought
