Choosing the right tyres for your vehicle
April 17, 2014

When it comes to ordering new tyres for your vehicle it is vital to choose the right tyres to suit your driving needs and these are some of the important factors to consider:

Car Tyre Size
It is a good idea to choose the same size tyres as the ones that the manufacturer has recommended for your specific vehicle. If you are not sure of the correct size of the tyres that the manufacturer recommends then check your drivers handbook or look for the information on a sticker which can be usually located on the car door, inside the glove box or fuel flap.

Your driving habits
Different tyres can perform better in different conditions. If you spend much of your time going up and down the motorways then you should look for a tyre which generates less road noise. There are certain brands of new tyres which are much quieter than others. If you are a driver who spends a lot of time driving around cities, where you constantly have to brake and accelerate, you should look for new tyres which are made of a harder rubber compound. These types of car tyres will be better suited to this style of driving conditions. If you spend most of your time driving around county lanes, then you should be looking for a tyre that will give extra grip, because these road surfaces can be very muddy or slippery so using new tyres with the correct tread pattern is vitally important.

There are a couple of sayings “you get what you pay for” and “buy cheap and pay twice”. These sayings are true when it comes to buying new car tyres. Be sensible when it comes to buying replacement tyres. If you use your vehicle infrequently, then it is not necessary to fit premium tyres to the vehicle, because the tyres are liable to crack and the rubber compound start breaking down long before you have even used any of the tread on the tyres. Look for tyres which are more suited to your needs such as cheap economy tyres or a good mid-range tyre. If you use your car regularly and are clocking up thousands of miles a year, you will be better off spending your money on better quality tyres, mid-range or premium brands, which will prove to be more economical in the long run, because they will deteriorate at a slower pace.

On the subject of price, etyres Wellingborough is offering customers the chance to enjoy £25 off when you order four or more new tyres and a £10 discount if you buy two or three new tyres, thanks to our Big Tyre Sale, which makes our highly competitive prices even lower.

How to make your tyres last longer and save money on new replacements
April 9, 2014

The tough economic climate means many of us are always on the lookout for ways to save money, whether it’s on supermarket essentials or a set of new tyres.

etyres Wellingborough can offer two bits of advice when it comes to saving money on your tyres.

1. Make sure your tyres are properly inflated – this will help you get the maximum usage out of them and means you won’t have to spend money replacing them prematurely.

You should check and make adjustments to your tyre pressures where necessary at least once a month and especially before setting out on a long journey. Always check your tyres when tye are cold or have been driven for less than two miles. You can test your tyres by investing in a tyre pressure gauge or stopping off to use one of the machines on a garage forecourt.

If you are using a vehicle that has tyres that are being run under-inflated, then this will cause your vehicles rolling resistance to increase, which in turn causes your tyres to overheat a lot much more easily and this will increase your vehicles fuel consumption – costly you more money! By having the correct pressures in your tyres, your engine will not have to work so hard, and this in the long run is multi win for you: you will save yourself money on fuel because you are not filling up so often and save more money because your tyres will last longer before you will have to buy yourself some new tyres.

2. If you need to buy new tyres come to etyres Wellingborough, because we supply and fit a wide range of new tyres to suit all budgets, including economy, mid-range and the premium brands and our highly competitive prices are currently even lower because our Big Tyre Sale means you get £10 off if you order two or three new tyres or £25 off if you buy four or more new tyres.
