Myth Buster #4
QUESTION: Are budget tyres as good as more expensive tyres?
ANSWER: Absolutely not. Whilst budget tyres are ideal for keeping the cost of motoring down, cheap tyres can increase fuel consumption, reduce vehicle stability, increase braking distances and potentially cause an accident. Your tyres are the only physical contact between the road and your vehicle, once you lose traction it could be game over.
Dont scrimp on tyres folks, always buy a reputable brand and dont forget to read the wet tyre characteristics on the label!
