As a driver, you are probably aware of the importance of your vehicle being fitted with quality tyres to ensure you remain safe and legal. In the current climate it could be tempting to avoid changing worn tyres to make a small saving. However, if your brakes were failing, would you leave it to chance that they will stop you the next time you need to? The price of tyres are one of the lower cost items of all the components that make up a vehicle and as the only part of your vehicle in contact with the road, you shouldn’t take a chance that they’ll perform well when worn and below the legal limit.
It’s natural to assume that the higher the price you pay, the higher the quality of the tyre purchased, but this isn’t the case in all instances. Although there is a possible proportion to the quality of tyre and its price, if you are willing to look around you will be able to get cheap tyres which are also great quality. But who wants to spend hours trawling the fitting centres to find out your best deal, surely there is a simpler and less time consuming process?
Buying tyres online is becoming more popular and gives you access to additional information like an image of the products available, the current offers on various brands, customer reviews and other important information you may need. All of the good online tyre retailers also have a support facility so if you don’t know which tyre you need, their trained staff are available to help via the phone, email or chat facility.
But how do you get the tyres fitted if you buy them online? The answer is, just as you normally would, at a local fitting centre. Unless you live in a very remote part of the country, chances are that that your online tyre retailer will have a partner with a garage in your locality. When purchasing your tyres online you will be given the opportunity to have them fitted or delivered, if you choose to have them fitted, the retailer will have a choice of fitters in your area and they will arrange for the tyres to be delivered directly to them, ready for fitting on your vehicle. All you have to do is turn up at the chosen time and date and they will fit them on your car for you, all included in the price. The only cost not usually covered when buying your tyres online is tracking, all other costs including a new valve, wheel balance, old tyre casing disposal and VAT are usually included in the fitted price. As well as providing quality tyres, all reputable online tyre retailers also have secure methods of payment so you don’t have to be concerned about the sensitive data you give out.
Before buying your tyres online, do basic research on the topic. Look out for current deals, subscribe to the RSS feed or newsletter of tyre retailers to be informed about their latest offers and latest products. With the right research you will get quality tyres at a cheap rate, without having to trawl around tyre fitting centres or the yellow pages.
