Of all the components that make up your everyday vehicle, the tyres are one of the most important!

It’s as simple as this, if you have bad tyres, then you are going to have a bad driving experience, and who wants that?

Here at A1 Super Cheap Tyres, we are committed to making sure that all of our customers are set up with the best tyres on the Gold Coast for their individual vehicles, and sometimes, that includes changing the size to achieve better results.

There are, however, a few things to consider on this front. Here are some top tips that are worth knowing with regards to changing the size of your tyres.

  • Before opting for a drastic change in tyres, you need to make sure that you are aware of the various restrictions that you might be up against. Your brake disks have to be able to fit the wheels, otherwise the car will not work in the way that it is supposed to. The general rule of thumb is that you shouldn’t be trying to go up any more than 1.5% or down by more than 2% from your original tyre size.

  • Think about what your reasons for wanting to change tyre size actually are. We are happy to discuss matters of driving performance and driving experience with you, but if the intended change is purely an aesthetic thing, then you may find that you run into some of the practicality problems that we mentioned above.

  • At the end of the day, the one thing that you absolutely need to do is visit a garage to get an expert opinion. The last thing you want to do is buy some tyres online and try to swap them out for yourself, because you might not have considered all of the technicalities that need to be checked to make sure that your newly sized tyres are still okay. Even if you check your owner manual, it is still best to get an expert opinion.
