How to Choose the Right Tyres for your Car
Choosing the right tyres is important, especially if you are driving in harsh weather conditions. You need to ensure that you are choosing the right tyres for your particular vehicle, as well as making sure you are getting good quality products that meet with any necessary regulations. Here are some of the things you should think about when choosing the right tyres:
Choosing the right size
You can find your car’s tyre size in its handbook. This will give you the following details:
- Section width
- Aspect ratio
- Rim diameter
- Load rating
- Speed rating
This will allow you to find the right tyre size for your vehicle. Alternatively, some websites will allow you to enter your vehicle make and model to identify the correct tyres.
Selecting the best quality
Of course, budget has to come into your decision. Not everybody will be able to afford the most premium tyres on the market, but you should consider choosing the highest quality tyres you can. This will help you to avoid damage and use your tyres for as long as possible (though you may want to check your handbook to see how often the manufacturer suggests you change your tyres). Compare prices with different suppliers – they could differ a surprising amount.
Consider having seasonal tyres
If you are worried about having extra grip on your tyres during the winter, consider using specific tyres for the colder months of the year. Many experts think that it’s definitely worth it:

If you’re worried about the space, many tyre sellers will be able to store them for you throughout the summer months. It’s important that you don’t use your winter tyres during the summer, as they will wear out more quickly.
