There are lots of options available when looking for new tyres for your vehicle. Apart from the major manufacturers such as Michelin, Pirelli, Bridgestone, Goodyear, Continental and so on, there are plethora of companies in the mid range and lower range categories.
Many second line brands which are available are made by the big manufacturers, and others that provide budget tyres in all corners of the planet. As such, the huge price difference in types of tyres is quite justified.
But why does this happen? All tyres look alike to the untrained eye. The question here is that is it worth buying the pricey premium tyres over budget tyres? The answer is a comprehensive yes. When paying more for a premium brand of tyres, you are not simply paying for the brand name. You pay for the technological innovations behind the high quality tyres and the millions of pounds spent in research and development of the products. The major manufacturers have the resources available to invest the time and money in innovative technologies, and so they are aptly positioned to provide the latest developments in the products.
The other brands tend to follow trends and can apply the new technologies up to years later. This doesn’t mean that their products are unusable or inadequate. It simply means that they are not able to provide the best technologies in their tyres as quickly as the major manufacturers. Most of the tyres tests are done under extreme conditions, but you as a vehicle owner will most likely never undergo through these conditions.
The differences in the products aren’t very apparent in ideal circumstances. If you think that the conditions you drive in require extra attention to the tyres, then premium brands are your answer.
There are lots of brands offering mid-range tyres from leading manufacturers, who offer technological innovations almost at par with the premium brands, but aren’t too well known among customers. These brands are generally priced above the budget brands but below the premium brands, and can provide excellent value for money. Some examples in this sector include Falken and Toyo, two Japanese brands, and Kumho and Hankook, which are Korean.
The next is the budget brands. Most of the cheap or budget tyres can offer good quality at affordable prices. These tyres are good for drivers who are involved in relatively lower use of vehicle, and perform mainly urban, low mileage driving. Some of the brands that fit this category are Kenda, and Federal, which are Taiwanese.
Finally, when looking for tyres in a place that has very high or very low temperatures, premium brands are the best bet for you. The high cost of these tyres is properly justified in challenging circumstances where they can clearly outdo their cheaper counterparts. The overall life of premium tyres can be greater than budget tyres, and you may need to replace your tyres less often. As such, the cost of premium brands can be justified since budget tyres, can need to be frequently changed, in the long run.
