How to know what car tyres to buy
As well as keeping you moving, your car’s tyres are a key safety feature for getting you around. Here are five things to know when buying them.
Your tyres are the only things connecting your car – and you – to the road. They are what controls our vehicle’s potential acceleration, braking and cornering forces.
That said, tyres do wear over time, and it is important to continually ensure they are inflated, as well as being checked for wear or damage. When checking tyres, it is important to understand how to know when it is time to upgrade, and what to look out for when buying new tyres.
So, if your tyres’ condition is less than ideal, here are the RACV Mobile Tyres and Vehicles engineering teams’ tips for replacing them safely and sustainably.
