When it comes to buying tyres, there are seemingly endless brands and models available and the choice can feel overwhelming. So what factors should you take into account when deciding which tyres to get? And what different tyres are available?
The type of tyres that will best suit you will be determined by a number factors including expected mileage, the type of vehicle you drive, when you drive, on what surfaces, and your budget. If you don’t use your car very often, you may not need to opt for premium tyres and you won’t need to change them as often. As a general rule, front tyres should be changed at around the 15-20,000 mile mark, whilst rears should last longer. This is partly dependent on the tyres themselves because premium tyres will last longer than cheaper options.
Tyres for passenger cars will be very different to those for SUVs, vans, or off-road vehicles. Your vehicle’s manual should give you a good indication as to which make and model of tyres are most suitable. Drivers use their cars for a variety of different purposes such as commuting, long-distance journeys, track driving, or off-road driving. The purpose for which you predominantly use your car is a major factor in tyre choice. Most manufacturers make summer, winter and all-season tyres. Summer tyres will perform best in dry conditions, winter ones in harsher conditions and all-season models in a variety of weather conditions.
This is a serious consideration as a new set of tyres can be a significant investment. As a rule of thumb, mid-range tyres are believed to offer the best value for money. Budget tyres may cost less but won’t last as long. Tyres tend to be divided into three categories: premium, budget, and mid-range. As the names suggest, this categorisation is based upon quality and price.
Well-known brands that produce premium tyres include; Bridgestone, Continental, Goodyear, and Pirelli. Budget brands include Autogrip and Runway. Mid-range brands provide the best value including Falken and Sumitomo. At Protyre, we offer a number of free checks, including tyre checks.
