1. Choose the Right Tire Size
When buying a tyre, you must know the correct size of the tire installed in your vehicle. To find out the correct tire size, you can see its size in the side wall of the tire installed in your car or bike. The size of a tire can be represented by three parts—the size of the rim, the width of the tire tread, and the height of the side wall.
For example, if the tire size is written as 195/55/R 16 80 V, it means 195 is the width of the tire, 55 (%) is the height of the side wall to the width of the tire, R refers to the radial construction of the tire , 16 (inches) denotes the diameter of the wheel, 87 denotes the load index of the tire and V refers to the speed rating of the tire.
If you are going to change the tire of your car, then only get the standard size tire given by the company in the vehicle. The company applies standard size tires according to the power, mileage and performance of the vehicle, so they are the best.
2. Choose the Right Trade Pattern
Another important task is to choose tires with the right tread pattern for your vehicle. The tread pattern of the tire affects the driving performance and mileage of the vehicle. The weight of the tread pattern can cause a tire to have more or less grip on the road surface. If you drive in the rain, the good tread pattern of the tire keeps the road off the road even in water and does not allow the tire to slip. There are generally three types of trade patterns- Conventional, Uni-directional and Asymmetric.
3. Tube or tubeless tire
There are generally two types of tires available in the market – tube and tubeless. If you are confused about which tire to install, you should always go for the tubeless tyre. Tubeless tires are safer than tube-type tires. There are many advantages to tubeless tires. If tubeless tires are punctured, they are easy to repair. Tube tires wear out more quickly than tubeless tires and require frequent replacement of their tubes.
4. Tire Rubber Type
While buying a tyre, you should check about the rubber material used in making the tyre. The rubber used in making a tire determines how the tire will hold on the road and how quickly it will wear out. If you buy a tire made from a higher quality material, the tire’s traction and speed rating will be higher. This will not only help in giving better control to your vehicle on the road but will also increase mileage and safety.
