Keith – tyres Basildon writes: When it comes to ordering your new tyres it is important to get the right tyre for your vehicle, that is why the load ratings and speed ratings are so vital.
Motor vehicle manufacturers put a lot of effort into choosing the type, make, size, profile, load carrying capacities and speed ratings to match their vehicles.
That is why it is strongly recommended that you always fit new tyres that have the speed capability and load index at least equal to or higher than those originally specified by the vehicle manufacturer.
The best advice etyres Basildon can offer if you are ordering new tyres is to jot down the details of your current tyres and quote them when you are ordering online or over the phone.
There are a lot of bits of information in the sidewall, but to order your new car tyres you are looking for this kind of configuration: 205/55 R 16 91V
205 – tyre size: the width of the tyre in milimetres
55 – profile: the height of the tyre sidewall as a percentage of the width
R – radial: not required, all tyres are now radial
16 – wheel size: the diameter of the tyres inner rim in inches
91 – load rating: indicates the maximum load at maximum speed for the tyre
V – speed rating: indicates the maximum speed for the tyre at full load
The load rating and speed rating are known as the ‘service description’. In this example the load rating (91) denotes the maximum weight capacity of the tyre according to the official load index table, which translates to 615 Kg. While the speed rating (V) indicates the tyre is suitable for cars capable of reaching a maximum vehicle speed of 149.1 mph.
It is vitally important to make sure you have the correct load rating and speed rating, as well as the other information when you are ordering your new car tyres. In some cases your insurance could become void if you select the incorrect car tyres for your vehicle.
But remember, our National Sales Team are available seven days a week on 0800 028 9000 to offer you advice and guidance about the best tyres to suit your car, driving style and budget.
And when you have ordered your new car tyres, etyres Basildon will continue to make life easy for you by coming to your home or work to fit them, saving you the hassle of driving to a tyre depot.
Keith – tyres Basildon writes: A lot of people might be tempted to put off replacing their bald tyres because money is tight, but it can prove to be a very expensive mistake!
Driving with illegal tyres can lead to costly accidents, fines, points on your driving licence and increased insurance premiums
The minimum tread depth for a tyre is 1.6mm which has to be in a continuous band across the central three-quarters of the tread width, around the whole of the circumference.
However, although 1.6mm is the legal requirement, a tyre’s performance (steering, cornering and particularly braking) at that point is already considerably reduced and safety organisations and tyre manufacturers suggest that 3mm is a more realistic safe minimum, particularly in winter, but also in the sort of wet weather we get a lot of in England.
Just one defective or bald tyre could land you a £2,500 fine and three penalty points and if all four tyres are illegal you can quadruple the fine and the points to £10,000 and 12 points.
And if you are involved in an accident and your tyres are illegal, you could even see your motor insurance claim denied.
It is really easy to check whether your tyres are safe – just get yourself a 20p coin and follow these simple steps: insert the coin into the main tread grooves of their car’s tyres. If the outer rim of the coin is covered by the tread, this indicates sufficient tread depth to be safe and legal. If the outer rim of the coin is visible, it is likely the tyres need to be replaced.
etyres Basildon supply and fit a wide range of tyres to suit all budgets, including economy and mid-range. Our prices are always low and we come and fit your new tyres at your home or work – saving you time and money!
