Choose the right size tyre for your car
Tell us a few key details and we'll show you which are the right tyres for your car.
The lower a tyre's rolling resistance, the less fuel you will use and in turn your vehicle will create less CO2. Over a distance of 625 miles a vehicle with 'A' rated tyres will use 6 litres less fuel than a vehicle with 'G' rated tyres. So over the life of a tyre, the difference in fuel costs can really add up and have a real effect on the cost of your motoring.
The Wet Grip grading is all about how well the tyre performs in wet conditions. The rating of your tyre makes a big difference to your ability to stop quickly in tricky conditions. If you brake from 50mph on a wet road, then a vehicle with 'A' rated tyres will stop 18m sooner than a vehicle with 'G' rated tyres. If you have to stop suddenly on the road, the wet grip rating of your tyre is critical in determining whether you stop in time or not.
The amount of noise a tyre makes is measured using sound waves, with one wave being the quietest and a tyre rated at three sound waves making the most noise. A decibel rating is also given, the higher the number, the louder the tyre. The external noise rating on a tyre label tells you how a tyre rates in line with future mandatory European legislation. One wave gives the best performance, three is the worst. In fact three waves is the current limit while two meets future legislation limit requirements.
