How to choose the right tyre shop ?

Invest 5 minutes, your car will thank you !

Tyre manufacturing is a compromise. It’s like see-saw, you raise the performance on one aspect the other side drops.

If we increase dry grip – wet grip drops.
If we increase wet performance – noise increases significantly.
If we increase tyre life – tyre performance drops.
If we increase tyre life – tyre performance drops.
If we increase cornering performance – shock absorption goes down.
If we increase high speed stability – shock absorption goes down.
If increase road grip – fuel efficiency goes down.
If we increase fuel efficiency – braking distances too increase.

AND THE LIST GOES ON AND ON…..

Tyre retailer plays a crucial role in selecting the right tyre size, brand and pattern which can dramatically alter your driving safety, comfort and performance.

Tyre retailer role is to comprehend the driving style, driving condition, vehicle condition, kms driven, current tyre wear out pattern observation and more… based on the comprehension tyre retailer role is to help client choose the tyre that fits his requirement best…

If a retailer shares price and asks you to make a decision, the retailer is adding “ NO VALUE”.

The right tyre store should be able to check and manage the AIR PRESSURE (most important Safety CAUTION); e.g how to manage the standard air pressure in hot and cold temperature of tyres.

MOST COMMON ISSUE across many places are the uses of HORSE. A RIGHT STORE would know the RIGHT SPOTS under the vehicle for HORSE to hold the vehicle without any WORRIES.
