Picking the right tyres for your car

With so many brands out there, picking the best car tyres will be a daunting task for many, particularly if it’s your first time! To help you better-understand your wheels, we’ve outlined some key areas that you should take special notice of.

What tyres does my car need?

With so many brands out there, picking the best car tyres will be a daunting task for many, particularly if it’s your first time! To help you better-understand your wheels, we’ve outlined some key areas that you should take special notice of.

This code relates to several requirements that are necessary to know when choosing tyres. To explain this in detail, here’s the breakdown:

  • Width (e.g. 245): refers to the tyre’s width in millimetres when it’s inflated
  • Aspect Ratio (e.g. 40): a percentage ratio indicating that the tyre height should be 40% of the tyre width (245mm), which is 98mm in this case (0.4×245)
  • Radial Construction (e.g. R): refers to the tyre construction type, with ‘R’ being the most common type
  • Rim Size (e.g. 18): refers to the wheel’s diameter in inches
  • Load Index (e.g. 93): refers to the tyre’s maximum load rating in kilograms, which is 650kg in this case
  • Speed Index (e.g. W): refers to the maximum speed at which the tyre can safely travel in km/h. In this case, the rating is ‘W’, which is 270km/h

To help maintain speed capability, and the handling characteristics of your car, it’s important to replace your tyres with a speed rating equal to or greater than that of the original tyres. Keep in mind that other tyres will also fit your car, but it’s recommended to closely follow the specifications provided by your car manufacturer.

How do I know when I should replace my tyres?

While a tyre blowout is a good indication that you need to replace your tyre, there are a number of other, more subtle, indicators that your tyres may need to be replaced. Here are some of the more common ways to check if your tyres need replacing.

How do I know when I should replace my tyres?

Tyre treads are designed to remove and disperse water between the tyre and the road to help maintain grip and traction during wet weather. However, due to the constant contact with the road, the tread wears down, and becomes less effective as time goes on. The tread can be identified as the grooves you see in your tyre, with tread indicators also found inside these grooves, which show you how your tyre is travelling. Tyres without much tread left are known as ‘bald tyres’, which often come with a traffic ticket from your local police officer should you be pulled over.

Age

Age is also a factor when it comes to replacing your tyres. As tyres age, the compounds that hold the tyre together begin to break down, particularly if you leave your car exposed to the elements. As a result, even if you don’t drive often, tyres can still become unsafe after a long period of time, with most tyre manufacturers recommending that tyres be thoroughly inspected every year once they reach five years of age, and be immediately replaced if they are over 10 years old.

You can tell the age of your tyre by inspecting the identification numbers on the sidewall of the tyre, generally prefaced by DOT. The last four digits are the date of your tyre, with the first two indicating the week of the year, while the last two digits indicate the year itself. Pictured is an example from Bridgestone.

Tyres are generally on the checklist when you take your car in for a service, regardless of whether it’s a major or minor service, although it’s always best to check with your mechanic before you hand the keys over. Alternatively, you can also ask for them to specifically check your tyres for damage or leaks, and whether they need replacing if you’re worried about what’s between you and the road.

The final word on buying new car tyres

We get it – buying new car tyres doesn’t seem like the greatest way to spend hundreds of Ringgits, and it’s not. But buying quality tyres is an investment in your vehicle and your driving experience. Even your safety potentially. Our research over the years proves that the big name brands are the most popular with Malaysian motorists.

The smaller brands simply get nowhere near them in terms of customer satisfaction. But digging a little deeper into your pocket and deciding to pay more for quality is the challenge we motorists face. But if there is one takeaway message from this report, it’s that those people who do buy those big name brands generally don’t regret it.

Tyres are generally on the checklist when you take your car in for a service, regardless of whether it’s a major or minor service, although it’s always best to check with your mechanic before you hand the keys over.
