Where can I buy tyres online?

By Julia Freeman

Tyre health is a fundamental part of vehicle maintenance. Old, damaged or poor-quality tyres will affect how your vehicle handles and brakes. Even the best quality tyres will eventually degrade. Depending on how frequently you drive, what you use your vehicle for and, of course, the types of surface you drive on, that degradation can happen sooner rather than later. Years of experience tell us that catching worn tyres early and replacing them is the best way to ensure safety on the road and increase your vehicle's lifespan.

The right tyres for your driving style

From there you'll be able to tailor your search in even greater detail. We offer everything from run flat to snow tyres. Our tyre professionals always recommend choosing tyres that match your vehicle usage. If, for example, you frequently use your vehicle to transport heavy loads, extra load bearing tyres are a good choice. Run flats will help you get to the nearest garage if you do suffer a puncture. Weather conditions are important too. Consider snow tyres for winter and always think carefully if you plan to drive abroad. Our tyre sales specialists will be able to help and advice in that case.

Buy Run Flat Tyres

Tyres to suit your budget

We stock tyres from renowned manufactures like Pirelli and Falken. In our experience, it's always best to choose these high-quality tyres because they offer better performance and increased longevity compared to budget alternatives. Although it can be tempting to opt for the cheapest tyres you can find, this often ends up costing you more in the long run. Spending a little extra on tyre brands like Sumitomo or Bridgestone means that you'll have to replace your tyres less, saving you money.

Check your tyres regularly

On average, most tyres can be safely driven on for around 20,000-30,000 miles, although this varies significantly depending on individual circumstances. It's important to check your tyres regularly. Pay special attention to the tread depth (the legal limit is 1.6mm) and keep an eye out for cracks or any other signs of damage. Catching these issues early helps to prevent them becoming expensive problems later. It's always preferable to replace your tyres early rather than too late.
