A tyre is just a piece of moulded rubber, right? Actually, it’s a whole lot more complicated than that. Different tyres have different speed ratings, load ratings, changing a tyre size can affect your Gearbox, differentials, odometer reading and much more. The picture on the right will give you a good idea of all the information that can be found on a tyre, and there is also a very nice Wiki write-up which you can find here.
For this reason, we’ve brough you a whole bunch of online tyre tools to provide you with all of the information you need before purchasing a set of tyres. For good measure, we’ve even thrown in a Car Finance Calculator – including all the Bank Admin Charges!
