Choosing Tyres

The options available when choosing tyres can seem confusing and exhausting. Not only are there too many brands, each brand can often have several choices of models available. Our experienced sales team will help you make a suitable choice based on your individual driving requirements and of course budget. This can be achieved quickly and painlessly on site at our West Ryde premises. Alternatively we can supply details over the phone or internet.

Our first requirement is to identify the correct tyre size and specifications suitable for your car. Generally we can determine this by discussing your vehicle details (make/model/date), however car manufacturers and owners can make modifications to the wheel size fitted, hence changing the suitable tyre size fitted. We always recommend 2 checks;

1.Tyre Placard

This is an example of a tyre placard, which since 1973 all cars in Australia have been fitted with. It is usually located on a front door jam, the petrol lid cover or in the glovebox . This placard specifies the wheel and tyre combinations recommended by the vehicle manufacturer. The placard also specifies recommended air pressure, load capacity and speed rating of tyres. These details can be crucial when determining the correct and legal fitment of tyres to your vehicle.

While we will always refer back to the tyre placard it is also important to know what is currently fitted to the vehicle. These details can easily be collected from the sidewall section of your tyre. The details we require will resemble a combination of numbers similar to that listed on the Tyre Size Designation on the Tyre Placard.

2. Existing tyre size fitted

While we will always refer back to the tyre placard it is also important to know what is currently fitted to the vehicle. These details can easily be collected from the sidewall section of your tyre. The details we require will resemble a combination of numbers similar to that listed on the Tyre Size Designation on the Tyre Placard.

Once we have determined the correct fitment size for your vehicle we are able to narrow the options available based on required performance, longevity, reliability and budget.

Tyre Pressures

Tyre pressures should be checked regularly (at least every 2 -4 weeks) as they are the key variable that ensures your tyres are operating safely.  Pressures should be checked cold, as there is an increase when the tyre has warmed up after being driven. The best tyre pressure for your car is indicated on the tyre placard. The recommendation on the placard is generally a minimum requirement and we would advise you increase this amount by 2-4 psi.

It is important to maintain the correct tyre pressure for your vehicle, failing to do so can result in some of the following consequences;

  • Compromised road handling, braking and ride comfort
  • Uneven tyre wear, causing premature tyre replacement
  • Stress on tyre casings, increasing risk of tyre failure
  • Poor fuel consumption

Tyre Rotations

The most important tyre maintenance tip is to regularly rotate your tyres.  Rotating your tyres will maximise overall tread life, even out wear patterns of both front and rear tyres, and reduce tyre noise and vibrations.Depending on the vehicle we recommend tyre rotations every 5-10,000 klms.
