Which tyres are right for you?
October 1, 2014

We are frequently asked about the differences between an economy, mid-range and premium brand tyres and whether the cheaper tyres are equal to the more expensive options because they come with similar treads and are both made of rubber.

Of course all tyres are different, but what is important is that you match your requirements with the right tyre, and etyres Leicester are always happy to take the time to talk through the various options available to our customers.

We recommend you take into consideration factors like how many miles you will cover, what type of vehicle you have and how you drive, these will be helpful pointers as to which tyre is right for you. Fitting a budget tyre to a Porsche would be questionable for a car that is built for speed and good handling of the road, whereas, a vehicle that is not used very often but you want to make sure is safe and legal on the roads, would be an ideal candidate for an economy tyre.

Now all new tyres sold in the UK must be accompanied by a tyre label which rates their performance in three key areas, wet grip, fuel efficiency and noise emissions. These criteria apply to all tyres, whether they are economy, mid-range or premium, so you can compare how well an economy tyre performs on wet roads compared to a big name brand, or whether a mid-range is as economical to run as a premium brand tyre.

These are all very important considerations to take into account, but we recognise that budget is also a key influence, which is why we offer an extensive range of economy and mid-range tyres.

So whatever your tyre needs or whatever questions you have, etyres Leicester are here to help. Call us now on 0116 217 9418 to discuss your options.

Parts worn tyres equal part safe tyres
September 24, 2014

Is your car ready for new tyres? Do you normally purchase part worn tyres? It’s understandable how many people will choose to purchase part worn tyres due to the cost, however etyres Leicester want to ensure everyone is aware of the possible hazards linked to part worn tyres.

We would like you to click here to watch a video of Quentin Willson discussing the hazards of part worn tyres, we think you will be shocked.

etyres Leicester would like you to know that you can purchase a brand new 16 inch budget tyre and have it fitted at your home or work for as little as £46.45, including VAT, and although this is a little more expensive than a secondhand tyre, it will offer much better value for money in the long run. Plus we are also offering our etyres Leicester customers an extra £25 off if they order four new tyres or a £10 discount if you buy two or three new tyres.

Now if you still want to purchase part worn tyres, here are a few things to consider:

- Check for lumps, bumps or cracks in the sidewalls of the tyre.
- Check the tyre to ensure all the original markings are displayed.
- Check to see if the words PART WORN are displayed in 4mm capital letters.

And remember, part worn tyres can also mean part safe tyres!

Alternatively, you can turn to etyres Leicester and we will help you find the right tyre to suit your vehicle, driving style and budget. You will also be able to rest assured that your brand new tyre has passed rigorous EU tests and has the maximum amount of tread which should serve you well for many years and not just months.
