There are a number of questions, that customs usually ask before they get a set of new tires for their car.
This technique was once actively recommended. However, recent studies have shown that there is no real effect. The car battery still does not have time to warm up, but the loss of capacity is guaranteed.
- Rim width
There is a golden rule: it should be 25-30% less than the tire’s section width. Let's say you're looking for a 195/70 R15 tire. Its section width is 195 mm. In inches, this would be 7.68 (195 divided by 25.4). Subtract 25% or 30% from this value and convert the resulting number to the nearest value from the standard range. Get 5.5 inches - that's the width you need for a 195 / 70R15 tire.
- Rim diameter
Complete range of mounting diameters for passenger cars and off-road rims: 10, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18 and 19 inches. The vast majority of modern cars run on 13-, 14-, 15- and 16-inch rims. Recently, there has been a steady trend towards an increase in the mounting diameter; cars for which, for example, 13-inch rims are standard and converted to 14-inch, 15 to 16, etc. This is due to the desire to use low and ultra-low series tires, as their ride quality is better than high profile tires. And the lower the tire series, the less rubber on the tire and, accordingly, more metal - after all, the outer diameter of the tire remains unchanged. When using steel rims, the mounting diameter cannot be greatly increased. This will lead to an increase in the tire mass, which is undesirable. And the use of light-alloy rims allows increasing the mounting diameter of the rim without weighing the tire as a whole.
- The diameter of the mounting holes (denoted by PCD - Pitch Circle Diameter) and the number of these holes
For example, PCD 4/100 - 4 holes on a diameter of 100 mm.
It's no secret that "serious" firms play big and openly fight for every potential client. The managers of such companies have long done all the work for us and have considered all possible scenarios for developments. Agree, high-quality rubber will not cost "3 cents", right? And no one will buy bad tires for fabulous money. Based on this, we conclude: there are several price categories, thanks to which each buyer will be able to choose a product “at affordable prices”. Therefore, all tires in the same price range will not significantly “sag” in quality among competitors. If there is a difference, it is not tangible.
Global brands value the reputation they have gained over the years. They have many years of experience, qualified personnel and a whole staff of experts, who know a lot about the production and advertising of goods. They understand perfectly well that it is not profitable for them to waste their name, so they will not lower the bar under any circumstances, but they will try to make car tires even better with each new model.
There is no single answer to this question. Both tires have advantages and disadvantages.
The main advantage of non-studded tires is a good performance on dry asphalt and snow.
However, these tires have a significant drawback: their performance on bare ice is several times worse than that of studded tires.
The main advantages of studded tires are good performance on bare ice and rolling snow, but on clean asphalt their performance is noticeably worse than that of non-studded tires.
On the one hand, in winter there are much fewer days when the asphalt is covered with a crust of ice than days with relatively dry asphalt.
On the other hand, where is the guarantee that on these days you will not get into an emergency, because on bare ice a car not equipped with studded tires is practically uncontrollable?
The choice is yours!
Traffic regulations require you to put tires of the same size and pattern on one axle of your car.
You can put different pairs of tires on various axles, subject to the type and size recommended by the vehicle manufacturer.
However, the use of tires with different sizes and patterns leads, as a rule, to a deterioration in the technical characteristics set by the manufacturer, as well as to a possible deterioration in vehicle handling, increase in braking distance and in the tendency to skid, etc.
Looking at different tire models, buyers often ask: “Why does this tire cost almost twice as much? However, it looks exactly the same as the others.”
Indeed, tires may be very similar visually, but not so simple.
The latest technology and materials, as well as a special rubber compound and the latest developments in cord construction, are used while manufacturing expensive tires.
All this allows improving the important features of tires:
- It reduces the tire weight, and hence the dynamic characteristics of cars.
- It reduces fuel consumption.
- It significantly increases tire mileage.
- It reduces vehicle handling, reduces the braking distance (which means increased safety for you and the people around you).
- It reduces the noise level.
This is what you pay for while buying more expensive tires. The choice is yours!
The factory recommends different-sized tires for the same car. It depends on:
- Which rims are on your car? Iron or aluminium alloy? (aluminium alloy rims usually have a larger radius, wider and shorter offset)
- For which season this tire marking is used? For winter or summer?
- What engine is installed in your car?
We recommend choosing tires from the sizes advised by the relevant vehicle manufacturer.

Barter or buying old tires
Since our store sells exclusively new tires, unfortunately, we can’t work on barter or buy old tires.
Tires are best stored in a dry room with an ambient temperature of no more than 25°C. Avoid exposure of the rubber to direct sunlight. Rubber should not be in contact with aggressive chemicals to prevent its destruction. And be sure there are no spills of oil or gasoline on the tires, wash, dry the wheels and provide them with airing during the entire storage period. Compliance with these rules will help you to significantly extend the life of the products and protect against unnecessary problems.
