Choosing the right tires for your vehicle is not an easy task for all motorists. The tires you choose will have a serious impact on your safety on the road, the fuel efficiency of the vehicle, ride comfort and the enjoyment factor when it comes to your drive. A few of the factors you need to consider when selecting the tires for your vehicle are the type of vehicle you own, the climate, the terrain you will be tackling on a daily basis, the worst terrain you can expect and the tradeoff you are willing to make when it comes to performance and fuel economy. Based on the amount of off road driving you might have to do here and the seasonal variations, it would be natural to wonder “What brand of tires do I put on my car in Dubai?”
There have been great strides made in tire technology over the years to the extent that tires can make a tremendous difference to the performance of a car. Hence, you need to choose a tire that is the perfect fit for your vehicle. The vehicle manual or the glovebox is generally the first point of reference, in order to find the specifications of the tires that are most suitable for the vehicle. Tires with different sizes and characteristics are used for buses and trucks, SUVs and sedans as the weight varies for each type of vehicle. In order to perform well on the road, the full set of tires must be able to support the weight of the vehicle. If the tires are not able to do so, there will be no extra margin to make the vehicle safer and more responsive in critical situations. This is the first criterion to consider when it comes to buying replacement tires.
If you are buying only one or two replacement tires, it is important to use tires having the same brand, size and speed rating as the existing tires in order to minimize poor handling. You can purchase the same tires that were fitted on the car at the factory. Depending on your individual preferences, you can choose tires belonging to another brand that have the same size but provide better traction, better aquaplaning or are more suitable for offroad use if you take frequent trips into the desert. For example, Cooper recently launched several tires in Dubai including the Discoverer A/T3 Sport for offroad use, the Zeon 4XS Sport which is meant mainly for medium and large SUVs that are commonly seen on the roads here and the Zeon CS8 which is ideal for slick and wet roads. Tires of all leading brands including Goodyear, Michelin, Continental, Dunlop and Bridgestone are available in Dubai. Many brands like Kenda, Deestone and Marshal provide tires at value tires without any compromise when it comes to performance.
When it comes to tires, the best ally you can have for selecting the right tires for your vehicle in Dubai would be a well-run garage staffed by experts on tires. After learning about your preferences and taking one look at your vehicle, they would be able to provide you with the best guidance. They are up to speed with the latest trends in tire technology and the tires that are available in the retail tire market in Dubai. Hence even if you are not really aware of the difference between tires having speed ratings of U and V, with experts like those from Orange Auto in Al Quoz on your side, you can be sure that the tires you choose will give you the smoothest, safest ride ever.
