Premium car tyres are produced from high grade material to ensure that they are more resistant to wear and tear to last longer and provide optimum safety. In addition to the material and tyre testing, premium tyres often provide improved wet grip, fuel efficiency and lower noise levels when compared to cheaper tyres.If you have a high annual mileage, travel on motorways or at high speed regularly, then premium tyres are for you. These tyres are designed for demanding driving styles and are better at withstanding rougher terrain. Most importantly, they are designed to make safety paramount. Your tyres are the only thing between your car and the road, if you need to make an emergency stop or manoeuvre quickly then they are ideal for gripping the roads surface.
Mid Range Tyres
Mid-range tyres tend to be the best option if you are the kind of driver who needs their car for getting to and from work, transporting your family around and other frequent journeys. If you rarely put a lot of strain on your vehicle, or rarely drive over harsh terrain and through tough conditions, then mid-range tyre prices offer the best balance and performance for your vehicle.For the average driver, mid-range tyres offer great performance in wet and dry conditions, can corner well, and are extremely durable for everyday driving.
Among the brands that provide the best budget tyres that we have on offer are Autogrip, Evergreen, Goodride, and Rapid. Choosing a new set of tyres can be a delicate balancing act between getting something that delivers the level of performance that you need, and also getting a good deal for the amount of money you're spending.If you need your car to make a lot of short journeys and have found yourself caught out with a puncture and a need to replace your tyres quickly, then opting for cheap tyres could be a good solution especially if you don't have an emergency fund set aside for your car. Or if you have a second car that does not get as much use then opting for budget tyres is more likely to suit the vehicle for the amount of mileage it does.While premium tyres offer the best performance and handling for high speed driving and those who travel frequently on motorways, if you are the kind of person who only makes short journeys whenever you need to, then cheap tyres may be a better option for you.Budget tyres are known to wear out faster but if you are not going to be doing a lot of driving before you change vehicles then you are unlikely to see the benefit of purchasing more expensive tyres..

How Puncture Control Works
Our tyre repairs policy reflects that of the British Standard - BSAU159. The British Standard also defines limits to the location, size and number of repairs that can be carried out and suggests recommended materials to be used for the puncture repair.
British Standard BSAU159 also defines the requirements for safe minor car tyre puncture repair and its proximity to the sidewall. To remain compliant, we are only able to carry out tyre repairs to the central ¾ of the tyre (known as the minor repair area). If the puncture is situated outside of this area it is deemed too close to the sidewall to guarantee a safe and lasting minor repair.
Wheel balancing ensures that weight is distributed equally around the wheel and that the tyre rotates evenly. This involves adding small balancing weights to the rim which counter weight inconsistencies. If you imagine a set of balancing scales, when you add a heavy weight to one side the scales will tip. If you then add a number of smaller, less heavy items to the other side, the scales will gradually begin to tilt the more you add until finally, when you have added enough smaller weights, the scales will once again level out. Add too many weights and the scales will tip the other way. Although this is a simpler example, wheel balancing works in the same way and if an imbalance towards one side of the wheel is identified, wheel weights are added to the opposite side to even out the distribution of weight.
It’s important to address wheels that are not correctly balanced to ensure you receive the best ride comfort. Incorrectly balanced wheels produce a vibration that is felt through the steering wheel when travelling above a certain speed that can cause considerable discomfort over time. What’s more, balance issues can cause premature wearing of your tyres, suspension and steering components.
