What are homologated tyres?

Homologated tyres have been tested and approved by the vehicle manufacturer to be compatible with a specific make and model of vehicle. They are sometimes called original equipment tyres, or OE tyres.

Are homologated tyres worth it?

In most cases, yes. They have been specifically designed and tested to deliver an optimal performance for a specific vehicle. Which means that they are likely to provide better performance, handling and safety.

Do homologated tyres make a difference?

Yes, they can make a noticeable difference. Homologated tyres are designed to work in harmony with the vehicle they are approved for, which can lead to improved handling, better grip, and increased safety.
