Our tyre buying guide

You know you need a new set of tyres as you’re researching what kind of tyres to buy. If not, our article when should I replace my tyres can help you understand when it’s time and the signs to look out for.


Below you’ll find info on what you need to consider when buying new tyres.


So let’s get to it!


What kind of vehicle do you have?

It may sound obvious, but your vehicle will dictate what type of tyre you need. So don’t get lost looking at truck tyres when you require new car tyres and vice versa—tyre size changes from vehicle to vehicle.


What conditions do you usually drive in?

The inner-city streets of Melbourne? The vast expansive highways connecting our states? Snowy mountains?


Where you drive, and the conditions in which you drive will dictate what type of tyre you need. If you drive in a city setting such as Melbourne which rarely sees days under 5 degrees, then an all-season tyre e is best suited to your needs. However, if you drive in colder conditions that sees snow and sleet, then a winter tyre may be better for you.


For more information on the difference between winter and summer tyres, please see our article: different types of tyres and their advantages and disadvantages.


What is your budget?

While we don’t recommend going for the cheapest tyre, we do understand that everyone has a budget, so balancing your budget and needs is essential for success. When it comes time to replace your tyres, setting a loose budget is best as sometimes investing a little more will save you in the long term.


Don’t forget speed rating and load rating

There’s no point getting a tyre that can’t support the load or speed your vehicle requires. It’s not only pointless, but it’s also a matter of safety. Always ensure you consider both factors when purchasing tyres.


If unsure, ask an expert, such as us, for guidance,


Still unsure?

No problem, we get it! Not everyone can be as excited about tyres as we are. So please don’t hesitate to call us for some guidance, or stop by and see us.
