Do I need Premium tyres?

Do my car tyres need to match?

At Protyre, we recommend fitting the same type of tyre on all four wheels of your car. Having tyres of the same size, tread pattern, speed rating and load index will help to optimise the safety and performance of your vehicle. Drive with four mismatching tyres and you’re a danger to yourself and other road users.
