The cost of a new tyre will entirely depend on the size, quality, brand and seasonality of tyre you pick. There are many factors that play a role in determining costs; from the all-season, winter or summer options to whether you chose a premium brand such as Pirelli or budget Autogrip tyres. It is therefore difficult to quote the exact cost but UK prices range from £40+
Normally, the smaller and narrow the tyre is, the cheaper it is; this is because a smaller tyre consists of fewer materials and will, in turn, have a lower speed and load rate. Cost tends to vary across types of vehicles with the thicker 4x4 tyres being much more expensive than a standard car or van tyres.
It’s important that you don’t buy the cheapest tyre just to save a bit of money. Instead, shop around to find a great deal and buy the correct tyre suitable for your vehicle at the best value for money. By putting the wrong type of tyre on your car will not only affect the way you drive but you risk the potential of your safety and others.
If you are driving and you notice that your tyre has suddenly gone flat, or has lost pressure compared to the other three tyres, then you might need to get a replacement.
However, before you rush off to your garage, inspect the tyre yourself by following the following steps;
If you don’t notice anything then try reinflating the tyre as it’s possible there might be a small puncture, and this could take several hours or sometimes days before the tyre to go down. On the other hand, if you have a noticeable hole then it is pretty obvious that you will need to repair or replace the tyre.
To find out what size your tyres are, you will need to look at the side of your current tyres and write down what you see so we can give you a quote on how much this will cost. The image below is an example of what you’ll need to write down and what exactly each section means.
