STEP 2 - TYRE CHOICE
Choosing the specification
The main things that effect tyre price are whether the tyre is of budget or branded quality and the speed rating you choose.
Budget or Branded
Both are perfectly legal for the road, but to get the most cost effective choice just ask yourself which would suit your driving style best. Here are a few pointers:
Typical user - Budget
- Car used for shorter journeys
- Small to medium cars
- Infrequent motorway use
Typical user - Branded
- High mileage driver
- Performance car
- New car
To make further savings if you have opted for branded tyres, don’t ask for a specific make. We vary which brand we buy depending on who is offering the best price at the time of purchase.
Quite simply the higher the speed rating the more it costs - So again pick one that suits your driving. See below:
|Speed Rating (MPH)||106||112||118||131||131||149||149||168||186|
