Buying new tyres for your car

The tyres your car requires are determined by a variety of factors, including the type of driving you will be doing, whether that is on or off the road. Climate conditions, such as dry, wet, or icy weather, can also influence how you should be choosing the right tyres for your vehicle.

When selecting new tyres, it is recommended that you consult with a tyre professional such as Belmont Tyrepower or your car manufacturer for expert advice.

Points to consider when getting new tyres

Besides the intended use of your car and weather conditions, it’s important to consider the following points when getting new tyres for your vehicle:

  1. Size and fit: Make sure the new tyres are the correct size and fit for your vehicle.
  2. Type of tyre: Choose the right type of tyre for your driving needs, such as all-terrain, mud-terrain or highway-terrain tyres.
  3. Speed rating: Ensure the new tyres have a speed rating that matches or exceeds the original tyres.
  4. Load capacity: Consider the load capacity of the new tyres to make sure they can handle the weight of your vehicle.
  5. Brand and model: Research and compare different brands and models of tyres to find the best fit for your vehicle and driving needs.
  6. Price: Determine a budget for the new tyres and compare prices at different tyre retailers.
  7. Warranty and roadside assistance: Consider the warranty and roadside assistance offered by the manufacturer of the new tyres.
  8. Professional installation: Have the new tyres installed by a professional to ensure proper alignment, balance, and wear.

At Belmont Tyrepower, we will ensure that the tyres going on your vehicle meet all the legal requirements and are a good fit, regardless of what vehicle you drive.

What size tyre do you need?

The size of your tyres depends on several factors, including the make and model of your vehicle, its year and trim, and any modifications you may have made.

The information about your tyre size can be found on its sidewall. The recommended tyre sizes will be listed in your owner's manual or on the tyre placard.

If you are unsure, it's best to consult a tyre professional or the vehicle manufacturer to ensure you get the right size tyre for your vehicle.

How much are new tyres?

The cost of new tyres can vary widely depending on several factors, such as the size, type, brand, and model of the tyre. It's best to research and compare prices from different tyre retailers to find the best deal for your budget and driving needs.

A single tyre can cost anywhere from under $100 to $600 or more, with higher-end performance and luxury tyres costing even more. The total cost of a set of four tyres can range from $200 to $2,400 on average for passenger vehicles.

What tread pattern do I need?

The tread pattern you need depends on the type of driving you do, which is closely related to the type of terrain you will be driving on, such as highway driving, off-roading, or performance driving.

When selecting a tread pattern for your tyres, consider the weather conditions in your local area as well, as tyre performance can vary depending on temperature and moisture conditions.

There are several types of tyres on the market with different tread patterns, including the following:

  • All-Terrain: Provide balanced performance in a variety of conditions.
