The blog this week is about how buying cheap tyres for your Volvo or Toyota may actually end up costing you more money in the long run. Read below to see our top tips:
At some point during your car ownership you will have to replace your tyres – it is inevitable – they do not last forever. Whilst it may be incredibly tempting to go for the cheapest tyres available in a bid to save money you could actually end up spending more in the long run. Why? Well cheap tyres do not perform as well as a more expensive tyre. They will most certainly need replacing quicker, stopping distance could be increased with a cheap tyre along with having a negative effect on handling. Cheap tyres may also be responsible for an increase in CO2 emissions and fuel consumption due to their poor performance. When looking at tyres for your Volvo or Toyota you will see that they have ratings – an A rating being a good quality premium tyre down to a G rating for the poorest quality. To increase the longevity of your tyres check your tyre pressures weekly/fortnightly. This will ensure an even wear on the tread and better fuel efficiency. Happy Motoring Folks!
