Beaurepaires’ Tyre Buying Guide

Take the guesswork out of tyre buying with our tyre buying guide. Read on for for some helpful tips to ensure you fit your car with tyres that will deliver on safety and performance.

Know your tyre size

It’s critical for your car's safety that you fit the right size tyres to your vehicle. You can find the tyre size for your car by checking the owner's manual.

Alternatively, you can find your tyre size printed onto the side of your tyre on the area known as the sidewall (provided the correct tyres were fitted to the vehicle in the first place). The sidewall indicates the width, profile, rim size and speed rating of the tyre.

Beaurepaires stocks a wide variety of high quality, well-priced premium and discount tyres to meet the needs of almost any class of vehicle.

Use trusted brands

Your car’s tyres are the only part of the car that makes contact with the road, meaning the quality of your tyres has a direct impact on the safety of your vehicle.

With so much at stake, investing in tyres that will deliver on safety and performance is a no-brainer. When it comes to choosing the right tyre for your car, you should only buy from trusted brands.

Beaurepaires stocks a wide range of the top tyre brands from around the world, including Goodyear, Dunlop, Pirelli, Continental and Roadstone.

Use original equipment

When it comes to purchasing new tyres, many customers wonder if they should continue to fit their cars with the same brand and model of tyre that came with the car, otherwise known as the ‘original enquipment’.

Your car was designed with a certain type of tyre in mind. So it's important that you either replace your tyres with original equipment or an alternative with the same characteristics.

Tyre characteristics

When it comes to tyres, there’s certainly no one-size-fits-all approach. Each tyre has specific characteristics that determine the tyre’s performance, traction, longevity, fuel efficiency, handling and noise.

When choosing what tyres you should buy for your car, you should pay attention to these characteristics as they’ll affect the safety, performance and longevity of your tyres.
