Tyres that are not right for your car or are worn can compromise traction of the car. So when looking for new tyres it is best to go to Thomond Tyres Limerick.

What to consider when buying new tyres

Tyres are important so you should always consider car’s manufacturer requirements. It doesn’t have to be any particular brand but your new tyres you buy must be of a size and type recommended by the manufacturer.

On the side of each tyre there is a code that not everyone can understand. This code explains everything that we know about the tyre. P205/65R15 94H – this is an example and a little bit of explanation:

  • ‘P’ stands for Passenger type of tyre
  • 205’ refers to the tyre width at the time when it is properly inflated
  • ‘65’ is a percentage ratio of between new tyre width and height.
  • ‘R’ this part stands for construction type, which in this case is Radial
  • ‘15’ is the diameter of the wheel stated in inches.
  • ‘94’ refers to tyre load. This number indicates how much can tyre carry at its maximum speed. 94 refers to 670 kg
  • ‘H’ stands for the speed rating and in this case it means it is rated to move at 210 km/h, with maximum load of 670 kg
