There are a few factors to consider when choosing new tyres and it's important to make sure you get the right tyres for your car. The way you drive could also be a factor so here are some helpful tips to consider...

  1. Climate – If you live in area where you experience lots of rainfall you should consider the scoring on the ‘Wet grip’ label. Buying a tyre with a high grade would be beneficial and help the car grip the road on those rainy periods.
  2. Type of car – some cars require specific tyres. You may need tyres with run flat technology for example so it’s good to understand what your car needs.
  3. Money – We all like to save money on purchases but your tyres are the only part of your car that has contact with the road. It's important to ensure that safety comes first before a bargain in this instance.

Choosing the right tyres for your car is very important, especially if you want to save money on your fuel bills. Before you purchase a tyre, you should check it's label. Not only could you save you money at the pump but you'll be able to see which tyres grip best in wet weather. You also have an indication of how much noise is emitted from the tyre.

Tyre safety is important and the label will give you some tips on how each different tyre performs.
