Tyres Types

The type of tyre that's right for you, depends on the car you drive and the type of driving you do.

Budget or value tyres
Budget or value brands are perfectly suited to short journeys around town, to the shops or on the school run. They offer significant cost savings at the time of purchase, but bear in mind that mileage might not be as good as more expensive brands.

Energy saving and long lasting tyres
For those who spend most of their time on the motorway, then low noise, long lasting and low rolling resistance tyres, will offer the best solution. Your driving will be quieter, smoother and you'll see higher mileages before replacement, too

Performance tyres
If you drive a prestige or performance car, you'll be interested in the latest technology tyres, offering high levels of grip and maneuverability, for rewarding handling and the ultimate driving experience.

Specialist tyres
If you're considering specialist tyres, we can advise you on the potential benefits and cost implications, so please speak to us first, if you're looking to purchase any of the following: off road tyres, reinforced tyres, winter tyres, runflat tyres, directional or asymmetric tyres.

Tyre marking
You can find more information about your own tyres, by looking at the sidewall markings. These marks tell you everything from the tyre's size, to the maximum speed at which it tyre can be used. The picture below shows an example tyre, with a key that that explains what all of the markings mean.
