How often do you check the tread depth on your vehicle’s tyres? Hopefully, you check them at least once a month, because failure to do so could result in you using more fuel than necessary, risking your safety and the safety of others, as well as being out of pocket when you have to replace the tyres! Don’t be fooled into thinking that you must buy expensive tyres, because cheap car tyres can be just as reliable, so long as you buy from a trusted supplier. Many motorists worry about irregularities, bulges and cuts when paying less for tyres, but there’s no need to fret when you take the following things into account before buying.
Reading the Tyre Sidewall
Printed on the sidewall of the tyre will be the aspect ratio, the speed rating, the rim diameter, the load rating and the section width. It may look something like this – 195/50 R15 92H. Bear in mind that you will need to search for cheap car tyres that have a good load rating if you plan on towing things or filling the vehicle with heavy items. Once you have your numbers and digits noted down, you can provide the tyre supplier with the information. This will ultimately cut short the time it takes to find the right products for your specific vehicle and driving needs.
The Size and Specifications
Cheap car tyres should not be purchased until you know precisely what size the wheels and rims on your vehicle are. The rubber might become worn very quickly and fuel consumption could be affected if the wrong size is selected, so think about this. Specifications to consider include whether or not you require all-terrain tyres or basic tyres, the brand and of course, the age of the tyre. If the tyre is brand new, no worries. If not, inspect it first to ensure you can still see the tread pattern. A faded or non-existent tread pattern is an indication that the rubber no longer has much traction, which could result in skidding and long stopping distances.
When you know what brand of cheap car tyres you are after, you can start the hunt for a supplier. A trustworthy supplier will be able to sell budget, mid-range and premium tyres from numerous brands. They will have been in business for a number of years and will boast an ever-changing inventory. Everything will have been tested for safety by a good supplier and each customer should be guaranteed a minimum of 7,000 miles road coverage with used tyres and up to 20,000 miles with new tyres.
