Where do I find my tyre size?
We find the easiest way is to look at the current tyres on your vehicle. You are looking for a set of numbers, as shown in the example below. You must make sure that if you want front tyres, you take the size from the front. This is the same for the rear. Some vehicles have different sizes on the front to the rear.
Whether you are in the market for a budget or a premium tyre, you will find that we stock a wide range of models from all world-renowned manufacturers. Once you know the right tyre size for your vehicle, you'll need to think about the quality of tyre that will best suit your needs. All tyres on sale in the UK will meet strict safety standards, however a better quality tyre will last more miles and give you a better driving experience.
In summer, budget tyres will perform as well as premium tyres, however they will normally only last for 7,000 to 8,000 miles and will not perform as well in wet or wintry conditions.
If premium tyres are out of your price range you may wish to consider mid-range tyres. The brands may not be quite as well known as the premium brands, but you still get a sense of the technology which has gone into their development.
Mid-range can provide great value for money and depending on the type of driving that you do they can also prove to have a long life span.
Thanks to the high quality construction and materials used in manufacturing, premium tyres will generally last for 15,000 to 20,000 miles under normal usage.
Heavy investment in research, design and technology means that premium tyres benefit from improved stopping distances, fuel economy, grip (especially in wet conditions) and lower noise levels.
