TALKING TO YOUR DEALER
Your dealer’s job is to help you find the right tire for your driving style, vehicle and budget. While you might not know your full requirements before your visit, some preparation can help.
Know Your Driving Needs
Your dealer will want to know about your driving needs and habits, so arriving with a good understanding of your driving routine will be of great help. You should also note the tire characteristics that are most important to you.
Read the Manual
Vehicle manufacturers often choose OE (original equipment) tires based on a number of factors that optimise the performance and handling of your car. Your vehicle’s manual might contain more details on this. Coming prepared can help your dealer find a balance between the manufacturers recommendation with features that match your driving style.
Do Your Price Homework
Tires are the only points of contact between your vehicle and the road, so it’s important not to underspend on them. At the same time, you don’t want to end up with more tire than you need. Ask your dealer to show you a range of tires in different cost categories.
