What are the best budget tyre brands?

We offer some of the most popular cheap car tyres from leading manufacturers including:


Available in the UK since 2012, Autogrip tyres are made by Fullrun. This range of cheap tyres includes summer tyres and run-flats by smaller brands including Fullway, Versatyre and Antyre.


Ovation tyres are made by Shandong Hengfeng Rubber & Plastic Company, who produce 12 million tyres per year. Top-spec European machinery guarantees high quality and consistency.


Produced by Singapore’s Giti Tire company, Runway make both budget and performance tyres. No matter how you drive, there's a Runway tyre for you.

What's the difference between budget tyres and normal tyres?

The main difference between cheap tyres and mid-range tyres is the price.

Budget tyres are often cheaper because of fierce regional competition in eastern Asia and poor brand recognition in Europe. Premium tyres are built for specific purposes and tend to be from recognisable brands like Dunlop, Continental and Pirelli. Mid-range tyres are often produced by the same premium manufacturers but with slightly cheaper materials.

Similarly, budget tyres use materials and processes that aren't of the same quality as those used by premium manufacturers. However, they're perfectly suitable for drivers who put low demands on their vehicle or always drive in predictable conditions.

What about discounted tyres on offer?

It's also worth noting that cheap budget tyres and discount tyres are different things.

Budget brands provide affordable rather than high-performance tyres, whereas a discount tyre can be a high-performance option that's reduced because of over-stocking or line clearances. If you do a lot of driving, it could be worth buying premium tyres.

We often discount particular tyres and leading manufacturers do the same, meaning you can find great tyres at low prices. For example, in certain tyre sizes, Pirelli and Bridgestone sometimes match the price of mid-range and budget brands. Always check every manufacturer when looking for cheap tyres online.

Are budget tyres safe?

It's important to remember that just because cheap tyres don't use the same premium materials as more expensive options, they must still meet the same stringent roadworthiness tests. If they weren't safe, they wouldn't be on the market.

The best budget tyres are suitable for small cars that travel less than 8,000 miles per year within urban areas. If you tend to travel for long distances on intercity journeys, it might be worth spending that bit more on premium tyres. No matter the price point, you can always make your tyres last longer by driving carefully.

How much do budget tyres cost?

Depending on your wheel size, budget tyres can start under £40, with run-flat tyres starting at around £50. Premium tyres, on the other hand, can set you back around £80 per tyre. Some brands, including Runway, make both budget and performance tyres and therefore may have a wider range of prices.

    Tyres for your car

    Tyres may not be the first thing you consider when it comes to vehicle safety, but tyres are your vehicle’s only link with the road. In fact, your safety (and that of your passengers) actually relies on an area of contact between the tyre and the road surface, which is no bigger than the palm of your hand.
