Tips For Buying Car Tyres

There are numerous factors to consider while buying a car tyre in order to carry your car journey smoothly over the years. Here, we have jotted down some mandatory tips to follow while making a final big buy:

  • KNOW YOUR TYRE- A lot has changed in the tyre manufacturing process. Now the tires are made inside out where fabric belts and steel belts are used around inner liner in order to give it more stability and make the thread flatter. It has different types of side walls which are capable of sustaining in case of excessive bumps and responds sharply to steering activities.

  • CHECK THE USABILITY OF YOUR SPARE TYRE- In case you have a spare tyre, and it suits your requirements, then it is advisable to make use of it before investing for a new one. It will postpone your expenses for some time.

  • CHECK OWNER’S MANUAL AND PLACARD- In the owner’s manual and information placard, all the details and recommendations regarding the type and size of tyres are mentioned. It is a lawful declaration which is attached anywhere in your car like inside trunk lid, door edge, glove compartment door etc. If it is not found anywhere, then you can either search on the manufacturer’s website or you can get a replacement kit from your dealer.

  • CHOOSE THE RIGHT SIZE OF TYRE- The size of tyre is mentioned on every tyre in a standard format. For example, if this is the number printed 205/85 R11, then 205 mm is the width, 85 is the height of sidewall as a ratio with the width, 11 inches is the diameter of the rim and R is the letter for Radial. It is advisable to check the size of your tyre and match with your car’s wheels.

  • COMPARE THE BRANDS- There is a lot of brands available in the market, but while making a big and important purchase like tyres, it is advisable to compare different brands and go with the best one. A little research would save your money and time during an emergency.

  • BUY DURING DISCOUNTS- Buying car tyre is a costly affair. If it is not an emergency and can be delayed, then it is advisable to wait for the right discounts to purchase it. A little saving would in turn aid you in investing in a better quality item.

  • CHANGE ALL FOUR TOGETHER- Even though just one tyre is damaged, but if you have a budget, then it is advisable to go for a full set of tyres. It will maintain the quality of the tyres with time and can be easy in handling. You will not have to keep a check on every tyre separately every few months.
