That’s why a single car puncture can inconvenience even the most expensive car, and render it immobile on a busy road. Never wait for emergencies to strike, always think ahead. The below tyre buying guide will go a long way in helping you stay prepared at all times.

  • First and foremost, never wait until the last minute or when you have a puncture, before looking for the best car tyre dealers. To avoid this, always carry out constant checks on your tyres to ascertain their fitness and condition. If you notice that a tyre is worn out, start thinking of a solution there and then. It’s always better to have new spare tyres at home, than rushing to buy one at the last minute.
  • Secondly, you’ll need to know what you want in a tyre. Do you want to buy a regular, ordinary tyre? Or a specially modified one, for instance for wet and windy driving? Or one for off-road driving
    ? Knowing these things will help you narrow down your search when looking to buy the tyres. Besides, your regular tyre dealer may not stock these specially modified types.
  • Do a bit of research and see which car tyre dealers are around you In a major city like London, you’ll find that all the major car tyre brands are available in various outlets. Check these out on the internet if you can, most of these outlets have websites where you’ll see what brands they have, prices, and so on so forth.
  • Nowadays, it is also possible to purchase car tyres online. However, the internet is full of cons and scammers. You’ll need to be careful and ensure that you’re dealing with a reputable dealer whose integrity is beyond question. Usually, most tyre dealers will require you to pay a small amount as a commitment fee, and the rest when the tyres are delivered to you. This is meant to help protect you, the buyer, and the seller as well from jokers.
