Whether you buy tyres online or in person, there are several important things to consider before deciding which ones are right for you.

After all, your car or 4WD tyres are the point where your vehicle connects with the road - it's important to choose wisely!

Start by finding out what size and type of tyre is recommended for your vehicle. This information should be located in the owner's manual, but you could also look online or ask a tyre professional.

Once you know this, consider the sort of driving you normally do. Are you city bound most of the time or do you often venture off the beaten track? As well as making sure your new tyres are right for your vehicle-type, they will need to be able to support any extra loads you will be carrying.

So it pays to think ahead! Other factors to consider include noise suppression, ride quality, fuel economy, wear and, of course, cost.

As tyres are so important to the safety of your vehicle, never be afraid to ask for advice on the best ones for your vehicle.

Purchasing the right tyres won't just deliver a better ride - it will give you peace of mind that your vehicle has a solid connection with the road!
