Choosing the right tyre for a vehicle in India

Mon, 2015-01-12 00:30
Tyres can have an enormous impact on a vehicle’s performance, safety and energy efficiency. With thousands of different types and makes of tyres to choose from, finding and choosing the right tyre can be a daunting task. However, there are several important factors that all drivers should consider when buying a set of tyres.

 

 

Choosing a tyre

  • Every vehicle has a specific tyre size; this information can usually be found in the inside rim of a tyre, or in your vehicle’s handbook. There are also often separate tyre specifications, such as a tyre’s aspect ratio, or its maximum load or maximum speed limits, which you should bear in mind. Getting this information right – knowing exactly what type of tyre you are looking for – is an essential first step in choosing a tyre.
  • Larger vehicles, like trucks and buses, will need larger tyres. In India, where some road surfaces are low in quality but where the roads themselves are enormous in length, such vehicles are regularly travelling long distances over harsh, hostile roads.
  • Indian buses and trucks travelling in rural areas of the country are often those travelling furthest on the worst roads. Therefore, investing more money in a high-quality set of hardwearing, durable tyres will most likely result in better fuel consumption, more mileage, and a longer lifespan for a vehicle, and the vehicle’s owner will end up saving money in the long run.

 

Climate & Weather

  • India’s climate is also something that must be considered when choosing tyres. Areas of the country subjected to fierce heat – particularly urban areas – will often benefit from a tyre with a symmetrical tread patterns, which will improve a vehicle’s performance, cornering and the vehicle’s response to acceleration and braking during summer driving conditions.
  • For cooler areas of the country, or for those particularly subjected to the seasonal monsoon rains, an asymmetrical tyre tread is probably a better choice. Asymmetrical tyre tread patterns perform much better in wet and cooler weather, and the design especially helps improve a vehicle’s cornering during such conditions.

 

Passenger Cars

  • Drivers of passenger cars have a much bigger range of tyres to choose from. Different brands and makes offer different levels of performance:
  • Premium tyres, those of the highest quality, will usually last for up to 20,000 miles if the vehicle is being driven responsibly. This is largely because the companies that produce the tyres invest a great deal of money in their research and development; they are constantly searching for ways to make their tyres better than ever before.
  • Budget tyres, on the other hand, though cheaper are far less durable; they will normally last for roughly 8,000 miles. But as is so often the case in the automobile industry, and as the old saying goes, you get what you pay for.
