Safety should always be of highest priority when selecting tyres

Tyre selection needs to be done with safety in mind and of highest priority. Price should never be the main concern as the tyres help to provide your vehicle with the necessary safety to stay out of accidents. You do not want prioritize cost savings and choosing low price over quality, when selecting the wrong tyre can potentially get you into an accident. An accident, even if it is a small fender bender, will outweigh the cost difference between getting cheap and premium tyres. For items that you need to rely on and that should be built to last, you don’t want to invest in products that will wear out faster and be of inferior quality.

Tyres translate the performance of the car to the road and then make sure that you have sufficient grip and traction for safe driving, and you will need this regardless of weather conditions. With bad tyres you will not have the traction and grip needed to stay on the road.  Without proper tyre you will not be able to drive safely and a safe car with bad tyres, can make the car unsafe or at least very accident-prone. Most people will consider the safety aspects of a car when they purchase a new car, but when it comes to the tyres, they don’t consider it to the same extent.

You will need to make sure that you include only premium tyres in your tyre selection and find the tyres that will make sense for you. If you plan to drive in winter conditions, you have to include winter-approved tyres into the selection. You also need to make special consideration if your car is a hybrid, electrical or an SUV, you will need to make sure that you purchase tyres that are indicated for that use. SUVs have larger tires and electric cars and hybrids will have tyres where it says if they are recommended to be used with electric cars.

Electrical cars and SUVs are heavier than gasoline cars, so they will need tyres that can handle the extra weight without wearing out too quick. They will need to be wear resistant enough to handle both the weight and the higher torque you get from electrical motors. Due to the higher wear it is important that you rotate the tyres more frequently than you would with a normal car, to ensure that they wear evens out and the tyres last longer.

If you will drive in winter conditions, you should either get dedicated winter tyres, which will require that you have two sets of tyres, one for the summer and one for the winter. You can also get winter-approved all-weather tyres, which you can use all year round. Here you don’t have to worry about the forecast, as you are always ready to drive your car regardless of weather conditions.

For safe driving it is important that you purchase tyres that are good for the conditions that you aim to drive in. Winter tyres for winter conditions and summer or summer tyres for the summer conditions. Make sure that they are in good condition and those they have sufficient tread depth plus that they are properly inflated.
