How to choose the right Tyre for your vehicle - TyreCafe

by Editor News


Choosing a perfect set of tyres can be a hard task at times. There are a lot of things that one should keep in mind before buying tyres for their vehicle. Some of these basic things are mentioned below:


  1. Tube or Tubeless: The first parameter on which one can judge which tyre to buy is by choosing between a tube and tubeless tyres. Although it is always advisable to go for tubeless, still this is the first parameter to choose from.

  2. Size of the tyre: Size is one of the most important things to keep in mind while choosing a tyre. It is written on its sidewall. The size of the tyre also depends on the rim size. Larger the rim, smaller is the sidewall and vice-versa.

  3. Tread: The overall performance of a tyre is majorly dependant on its tread pattern and tread-depth. The tread pattern of a tyre changes according to the type of tyre- summer, winter or all season. The tread of the tyre can be of one of the following patterns:



  • Directional: Also known as unidirectional, these can be fitted and rotated only one way around. The directional tread has V-shaped grooves which are most commonly found on wet and winter tyres to remove water and snow.

  • Symmetrical: Similar tread patterns and continuous grooves are present all around the tyre. Most widely used form of tread pattern, commonly found in low and medium performance passenger cars. As the pattern is symmetrical in both halves of the tyres, unlike directional these can be fitted in either way.

  • Asymmetrical: It is a mix of different tread patterns which helps to provide maximum grip on wet as well as the dry surface. Inner and outer parts of tyres have specific tread patterns and are designed differently. The inner and middle layer is well suited to provide a firm grip on a wet surface while the outer layer has broad grooves which enhances its cornering ability at high speed. These tread patterns are commonly used in a sports car.

  • Directional/Asymmetrical: As the name suggests, it is a combination of two different styles – Directional as well as Asymmetrical. V-shaped tread for repelling water away on contact and effective traction of asymmetrical tread.



  1. Rubber compound: The rubber compound is important as the grip of the tyre depends on the softness of the rubber. Also, the higher the speed rating of the tyre, the better is the grip of the tyre.

  2. Quality: The quality of a tyre is also very important and is dependent on factors like the reputation of the manufacturer and date of manufacturing of the tyre. One must always buy a tyre from a reputed manufacturer and not always go towards cost-effective tyres from not-so-reputed companies.
