Doing Business With The Right Set of Tyres
Updated: Jun 27, 2019
When it comes to choosing an appropriate set of tyres for your truck, van or ute, it pays to think beyond the price tag. Whether you’re the kind of driver to invest in your vehicle, or just someone who wants a low-cost way to stay mobile, there’s plenty of reasons why spending a bit more on a good set of tyres could pay off in the long-term.

With different tyres made to suit a variety of vehicle models, these two factors alone should get you well on your way to achieving a balance between safety and comfort, when selecting the best set of tyres for your vehicle.
Without delving into the specifics of the make and material of the different tyres available on the market, it would be helpful to keep in mind for your selection of tyres, that most varieties come in the two following categories: summer tyres and winter tyres.

That being said, this category of tyres provides a decent amount of traction to support your need for safety when driving. However, these tyres are made of a compound suited to warmer conditions – which means that performance may vary, and even suffer, should these types of tyres be used in cooler climates.

Like their summer variants, these tyres are built to manage both wet and dry conditions effectively but are manufactured using compounds suited to colder climates. If you often face wet road conditions where you live, it’s important to place extra emphasis on the type of treads you choose on your tyres. Remember to pick the right tread depth and shape, as this essential design feature is especially important so your tyres can effectively disperse water to maintain traction with road surfaces.
