Tires for the car: the basic rules of selection and care

Posted On November 14th, 2019

For any car, it is necessary to choose not only wheels but also tires. And this means that you need to learn how to understand the markings that are applied on the side of the tires. They have a lot of characteristics, so you need to be very careful.

What parameters should you pay attention to first of all, and in what way can you monitor the pressure in the rubber?

 Tire pressure

In many ways, road safety depends on the pressure in the rubber. For this, in many machines there is such a system as TPMS. If the air level is low, you cannot drive. It should be borne in mind that the pressure sensors in the tires of the car show how much air is in them.

They can be installed both on the disks inside the tire, and instead of the air pump valve.

Such sensors are capable of working for at least 7 years. But usually they are calculated for a 10-year period. The signal from them arrives every minute, so the driver is perfectly oriented, what pressure is in the front and rear wheels.

And you do not need to constantly check them by tapping your foot on one or the other tire.

But this is only if car tire care is carried out correctly, only then such sensors will last a long time.

 How to choose the right tires?

But still, how to choose the right tires for the car so that they can last more than one year? When choosing them, several very important parameters must be taken into account:

  • for which season are intended;
  • what type of tread is used here;
  • the tire is a tube or it is a tubeless model;
  • what width is suitable.

And these are just some of the indicators that play a significant role. If you don’t want to rack your brains on both the numbers and the index, then the most profitable option is to use a tire calculator, which is equipped with almost all serious online stores selling rubber for cars.

Choosing a good tire should be the priority for any Auckland car buyer.

First of all, you need to look at what season the tires are for . They are of three types:

  • summer;
  • winter;
  • all season.

If the car is actively used in winter, it is better to choose not all-season tires, but only winter ones. It should be borne in mind that for winter and summer there will be different tire treads on the car, which will ensure a comfortable ride.

And the guarantee of driving safety will be at a high level. If you need tires for winter, you must definitely watch that the snowflake icon is present on the markings. Although some manufacturers put such designations as “M + S” or “MS”. As for the tread, it is not only symmetrical, but also asymmetric.


Regardless of the tire you choose, if your car is old and beat up, you will not have a good driving experience. Vibration, instability and noises coming from all over your car will decrease the comfort in your car. It also makes it dangerous to drive.

If you own an old or junk car, you can look to sell it an Auckland car buyer. An Auckland car buyer may pay you good cash for your car and you can be on track to get a new, better vehicle.
