What’s the deal with cheap tyres?

What's the Deal with Cheap Tyres?

Every few weeks there is a new advertisement on television selling cheap tyres at unfathomable prices. To the untrained eye, it is easy to wonder why there is such a large discrepancy in price between one household name tyre, and another cheaper brand you have never heard of before. After all, aren’t all tyres basically the same combination of steel wires, nylon thread and rubber casing with different tread patterns? The short answer is no, and the longer answer that we will discuss in this article explains why.

Reduced Performance

The tried and tested reality of car tyre performance is that household name tyres like Pirelli, Dunlop, Maxxis and a dozen more you can name, all perform a cut above the rest of the cheap tyres in the market. This is because there is a significant amount of research, development and engineering that goes into the production of good quality tyres. Cheap tyres are particularly liable to perform poorly in wet conditions or on tight corners when you need the best performance handling you can get.

Shorter Lifespan

Quite often cheap tyres are produced using cheaper materials and compounds than expensive tyres. This can lead them to wear faster and prematurely, and require replacing sooner. Needing to replace your tyres more often is going to cost you more in the long run.

Cheap tyres and the inferior materials that go into them are more liable to crack, dry out or fracture than their expensive counterparts. It is worth noting that the Australian climate is particularly harsh on tyres. There are respected brands that do not import certain varieties of tyres into Australia because they are unsuited to the climate. Unfortunately, cheaper manufacturers are usually just trying to sell as many tyres as possible and do not make the same judgment.

Expensive Tyres Save You Money and Peace of Mind

You don’t need to buy the most expensive tyres available to give you peace of mind. However, it is worth being aware that there is a significant difference between cheap tyres and high quality affordable ones. Tyres are the only part of your car in contact with the road, and it is well worth it to purchase quality tyres to ensure you get the experience and performance that you deserve. High quality tyres have better fuel efficiency, last longer and stop faster than cheap tyres.
