The three categories of tyre have been determined as a result our longstanding history in the tyre industry. When determining which category a particular tyre belongs to we look at different characteristics. The characteristics taken into account include handling, rolling resistance, grip, fuel efficiency, noise emission, tread pattern and price
Premium Brand Tyres
Premium brands such as Goodyear, Michelin and Continental spend more on raw materials, design and testing than economy ranges. This means that you are investing in safety, quality and performance. These rankings are based on an average of the tyres each brands manufactures consequently there may be occasional differences. A mid-range tyre may have a lower rating than an economy tyre. An economy brand may be higher in price than lower mid-range brands.
Are mid-range and budget tyres worth it?
Mid-range and budget tyres have improved dramatically through the years. Premium tyres have the latest compounds, testing regimes and higher investment in their research and development. That high quality, premium, investment trickles down over time into our most loved economy and budget ranges. Premium branded tyre manufacturers will actually produce their own mid-range tyres from their previous generations technology. These tyres offer great value for money compared to the quality you receive.
