There may be more than 5 things you can consider about your car tyres but today we will be mentioning the top five talked about topics and give you our advice along with some key references consider.

Type of car

It doesn’t matter whether you own a car out right or lease cars on business or personal finance, you will at one point want consider the tyres within the package before making that final call. If you are opting for a performance vehicle or a powerful engine then upgrading your tyres to something more suitable is definitely one of the options to consider.

TIP: Always look for the spare tyre and ensure you have one before getting a car. In most cases you would probably find a space saver that would temporarily do the job if you ever come need it but if you have full size replacement wheel fitted with a road legal tyre then you’re in a for a treat.

Driving style

The tyres you want should suit the way you drive. For instance if you a performance car and like take the speed to the limits wherever you are your tyres may wear out quicker than you expect. In which case you may want to choose high performance low profile tyres to better suit your driving style.

If you a luxury saloon and enjoy taking it easy in cruise mode than you may enjoy a smoother ride feeling less of the road in which case higher profile tyres with more rubber would probably satisfy you better.

Weather conditions

This one is important and could take you off the path if your tyres are not suited the road conditions. You can be over the legal limit but still pose a danger to yourself and others so make sure your tyres are safe before you travel.

It is recommended that you either use all weather tyres or if you want the optimum performance from your driving then you could choose change your tyres as per season requirements. High tread profiles for the autumn and winter months and Low profile slicks for the hot summers.

TIP: Some countries or areas could surprisingly change in weather unexpectedly. Using all weather tyres may be a safer bet.

Budget

Buying cheap budget tyres doesn’t always end up being cost effective in the long run. The quality of the rubber, manufacturing quality and design of the tyre play a big part on longevity and reliability. Choosing brands like Michelin could take you a longer distance and may even have a better resistance to minor punctures. But you must consider the unexpected and unfortunate tyre puncture and cost of replacement before forking out on premium tyres.

TIP: A matching set of part worn premium tyres maybe a better option than low budget alternatives.

Legal requirement

The law states that the tread on a tyre must not be less than 1.6mm to be road legal. As unconventional it may sound, if you don’t have the professional tools or time to pop into a local garage you can quickly check your tyre tread using a 20p coin.

The Highway Code also mentions how important it is to maintain the correct air pressure in tyres for different vehicle loads.

Meeting the minimum tread requirement is not only a legal requirement but it must be met by the car finance companies before you return the vehicle at the end of your term otherwise they may be surcharged for the replacement of tyres to meet the standards.

TIP: check your tyres before you return your leased car and it may save you if you replace them yourself.
