Updated: Jul 10
There are so many choices when it comes to getting new tyres for your vehicle. When the time comes for you to fit your car with brand new tyres there are a lot of things to keep in mind.
There are so many things you need to think about. There are so many different brands, styles, and types of tyres out there on the market. There are so many options available. You need to make sure that you get the right advice - so you are getting the perfect tyres for your car whilst also getting value for money.
You can pick up the phone and call us to get the right advice. But I thought I would share with you some of the factors we’d help you consider when deciding on new tyres.
While it may seem obvious, the first thing you need to make sure of is the size of tyres that you need. There are so many different sizes available and you need to make sure that you buy the right sized tyre for your car. On the wall of your tyre, or in your car's handbook, there will be a code. This code lets you know everything you need to make sure your new tyres will suitable for your car. This shows you the section width, aspect ratio, rim diameter, load rating and speed rating. These numbers may make no sense to you but we can explain what they mean to you.
Quality and Price:
Once you know the proper size of tyres you need, you can narrow your search down to tyres within the right price range. Of course, tyres with a higher quality will cost more, but the good news is, in Australia there are much stricter safety standards than a lot of places in the world. This means you will get a better driving experience for a cheaper price. We understand that many different drivers will have different budgets so we have a wide range of tyres to suit all budgets.
Once we have established the right sized tyre and your tyre budget, we’ll also discuss with you how you use your car. Driving habits are an important consideration. Do you drive on long open roads? Do you drive more in warm dry climates or icy cold conditions? These factors help you decide whether to get all-season tyres, summer tyres, or even run flats - you will want to make sure that their tread and handling capabilities lines up with your driving habits. Whether you need car tyres or say, delivery vehicle tyres is also an important consideration.
