If you're searching for 'tyres in Swansea near me' our garage offers premium, budget and mid-range tyres from manufacturers including; Pirelli, Bridgestone, Falken and Sumitomo. Our tyre professionals can help you make the right choice to fit your vehicle and your budget and advise you as to whether you need summer, winter or all-season tyres.
Premium brands use the latest compounds and technology to create rigorously tested tyres that outclass the competition for safety, performance and fuel efficiency. For drivers who clock up considerable mileage annually, premium tyres are the smart choice.
Mid-range tyres are more durable than budget tyres; they strike a happy medium if you can’t stretch to premium quality. Opt for mid-range tyres from a reliable manufacturer if you don’t cover a high mileage but demand better performance and fuel efficiency than budget tyres can provide.
Budget tyres are suitable when you need a quick change of tyre and you are strapped for cash. In this situation, budget tyres from a quality manufacturer can be a good choice. They’re also suitable for second vehicles or cars that aren’t driven far. Otherwise, they can be a false economy as they’re the least durable option. Unless you expect to be driving consistently at temperatures below 7C, a good quality summer or all-season tyre is the sensible choice. Summer tyres are designed to give excellent grip and handling on dry and wet roads in warmer conditions whereas winter tyres use a softer compound that gives outstanding performance when your tyres need to grip in wet and icy conditions. All-season tyres offer a hybrid solution and are a good choice for drivers who experience mild winter weather conditions.
The following tips will help you keep your tyres in good condition until you need to replace them:
- Always keep your tyres inflated at the recommended pressure to avoid excess wear and damage
- Check your tyres for wear and damage on a monthly basis
- If your tyre pressure monitoring system alert activates, head for your nearest Protyre garage
- Ideally have four identical tyres fitted to your vehicle, if not, make sure you have matching tyres fitted in each axle
- Rotate your tyres regularly so that they wear evenly for a longer lifespan
- Check the sidewall of your tyres for all the information you need to order a new set using the Protyre tyre finder
