Buying tyres can be so boring – and expensive!
However, we at NamWheels can’t stress enough that you should great care while buying a new set of shoes for your car. As the only contact patches your car has with the road, cheap tyres can be extremely dangerous to you, your passengers and other road users!
Because of their vital importance, do not save or cut corners when it comes to tyres. If you can’t afford the correct set, consider taking out credit with the reseller or your bank. Maybe a kind relative?
What can you afford?
Follow the recommendations for your car /make and don’t deviate from the given size, load and speed ratings. In some instances you may deviate from the recommended size by a few degrees but we urge you to confirm this with a tyre expert.
And finally, shop around a bit! You might be able to find the tyres at a different branch, town and/or from a different tyre manufacturer.
