How To Buy The Right Tyre

The tyres you choose today are a critical factor in the quality of your overall driving experience and you could live with that choice for several years.

Whatever type of vehicle you drive, tyres make a big difference in how your vehicle feels, and how it handles.


What category of tyre do you need?

Start with your last set of tyres. Were you happy with them? If not, what was wrong with them?

You need to consider your driving habits, as well as the weather where you live.

The more questions you ask yourself the easier it will be to pick a tyre type.


What size do you need?

The appropriate tyre size for your car can be found in the owner's manual or on a placard located somewhere in your vehicle, usually on the door section, door post, glove box, or fuel door of your vehicle.

Consider factors such as load-carrying capacity of the tyre, as well as traction and tread wear.

Will they look good?

Don't overlook looking at the tyres; do you like the way they look? Do they go with your car? Aesthetics are an important criteria.
