Some Expert Tips to Remember Before You Buy New Tyres

One of the most celebrated movies of all time is “Fast and Furious”. It brought the 90s kids together. It gave them an acquired taste of driving and cars.

But, movies are larger than life. In real life, driving isn’t that easy and adrenaline-fuelled. It needs concentration and most importantly, a well-maintained car and with properly functioning gears.

So what can you do?

To make sure that your driving is smooth and you do not have to go gentle into the night, instead, rage, rage against the dying of the light, here are few tips you may follow to buy a set of tyres.

  • Choose the right brand

There are over 300 brands of tyres available in the British market. Some of the smaller local brands offer tyres at dirt low prices. As a car owner, you might be tempted to purchase these tyres and save a few hundred bucks.

Tread with caution!

There’s a reason that branded tyres in Doncaster are expensive. They feature excellent tread compound, load capacity, speed index and assurance of overall superior performance.

Cheap tyres, on the other hand, are made from comparatively inferior quality materials and neither last as long nor perform as well as branded tyres. There are also many unauthorised tyre dealers who sell such tyres. Those are neither safe, and in most cases, nor legal. Choose only from authorised tyre retailers.

Harworth Tyres Services sells excellent tyres from reputed international brands like Dunlop, Bridgestone, and Michelin. They offer various other car services and repairs like wheel alignment, filter change and wheel balancing.

  • Buy a full set

Most car owners are guilty of replacing a single tyre which has worn-out or otherwise damaged. However, replacing all four tyres at the same time works best with modern suspensions. If replacing the full set seems implausible, you should at least buy a pair for corresponding wheels. It ensures a balanced tyre performance and even tread wear.

  • Do not mix and match

Fusion fashion might be the flavour of the season, but when it comes to car tyres, mixing and matching is a recipe for disaster. It’s vital that all four tyres of your car are from the same category, if not identical. UHP summer tyres on the front wheels, for example, should ideally be matched with UHP summer tyres on its rear wheels.

When tyres are not evenly matched, they wear out differently and compromise on your car’s handling and steering capabilities.

  • Read your owner’s manual

There is a recommendation by your car tyre manufacturer, about the tyres’ size, the types you should buy, the appropriate load capacity and speed index and so on. All these necessary details will be provided in the manual that you received while buying your car.

If however, you don’t have any manual, you can get hold of a replacement, by paying a nominal charge to your manufacturer.

Keeping your car in good shape saves you a lot of time and money. If your drive isn’t enjoyable, what’s the fun in driving? A good set of tyres in Doncaster help you drive safely.
