  • Go for the same brand

 

Some car owners have a habit of picking another brand just to give it a try. Some might get lucky to find the switch quite suits their vehicle. But most of the time, it will not happen. If you are quite satisfied with your car’s performance upon buying it, then it would be advisable to retain the same old brand, even with tires. For one, car manufacturers choose the original tire equipment as it suits the specifications of the car. You may think that your old tire is failing you recently, but think back on the times when it is new. If the tire performance is remarkable back then, the wear and tear might be the reason why it is not giving you enough traction not the quality itself. Stick to the original brand; if you have Continental tires before, then look for a reseller of Continental tyres in Dubai for your spare or replacement.

If you are keen on switching, do some research first. Know which brand is the closest to your old tire model and check the consumer rating as well.

  • Know what are the sizes and specs

Once you are set with the brand, you now have to list down the size and the specs. First-time car owners may find it confusing at first but once you get the hang of it, you will know the tire specs like the back of your hand. Read your owner’s manual to know the right tire measurement. Take note of the width, diameter, load index, and the speed rating, You can upgrade the load index and the speed rating but the dimensions should be the same.

 

  • Determine what type of tires you need

Car tires may look like the same from the outside but there are different kinds available in the market. It is essential for you to know the type of spare you need based on your speed rating. The main types are as follows:

  1. All-season tires
  2. Performance all-season tires
  3. Summer tires
  4. Snow tires
  5. All-terrain tires

 

  • Check if the company offers tire repairs

There are instances that you don’t have to replace your tires, you just need to have them repaired especially if the wear is too small and can be fixed. Look for a company that also offer car tire repairs for specific brands. They should know how to repair varieties of tires based on specs and level of damage.
