Not all car tyres are the same, so it’s important to choose the right tires for your vehicle and the type of driving you do. Just remember that your vehicle’s tyres are the only part that’s actually touching the ground, so you must make sure that they are solid and have good traction in order to provide adequate stopping power in difficult braking situations. The wrong car tyres can make even the most high performance vehicle a dangerous death trap, but the right car tyres can magically turn the oldest clunker into a very safe car. Here are some things to take into consideration when buying car tyres.

  • Read the sidewalls of the tyres you already have on your vehicle. This information will tell you the size of the tyres that are on the car, the recommended amount of air to put in them, the tread life of the tyre, and other important information. If you’re happy with the performance of these tyres, then your best bet is to get new tyres with the same features and statistics.
  • Think about how fast you typically drive. If you spend most of your time driving in an area where the speed limit is quite high, like on major highways, then you will need car tyres that are rated for that kind of speed. If you don’t buy tyres with a high enough speed rating, they will wear out much more quickly. On the other hand, if you spend most of your time driving in the countryside of Sussex, Kent, or other rural parts of the UK, then a lower speed rating is fine.
  • Think about what kind of driving you do. If you stay on main roads and highways, than you won’t necessarily need any specific features in your car tyres except high quality.
  • Consider the tread life of the car tyres you’re considering. If you drive a long way in a relatively short amount of time, then it’s important to find car tyres that offer an extended tread life.
