Maintaining safe, reliable tyres is an important part of motoring. There are lots of different types of tyres available, with budget options a popular choice because of their low price.
Budget tyres come with many misconceptions, many that they are less safe than premium tyres. While they do offer value for money, budget tyres are still subject to the same checks and safety regulations as their more expensive counterparts. They’re best suited to driving on urban roads at slower speeds or for low-mileage cars.
When buying new tyres, there are five main types you can choose from. We take a look at each in detail so you can make the best choice.What tyre should I buy?
At Arnold Clark, we are proud to be the exclusive retailer for Orium tyres. Considered a ‘budget’ tyre brand, Orium tyres are safe and affordable and available at all of our service centres, starting from only £28.
We choose to stock and supply Orium tyres because they have an excellent safety rating. This safety rating is partly due to their directional tread pattern with three wide longitudinal grooves providing effective evacuation of water and good stability.
You can ensure your current tyres are both safe and legal with a free tyre safety check from your local Arnold Clark Service centre or you can watch our videos on how to check your tyre tread depth and tyre pressures.
