Unlike clothing brands, tyres unfortunately do not fit under the “one size fits all” category. Each car will have its own specific type of tyres and wheel requirements. Therefore, it’s important to check out the options to ensure you find the right tyres for your vehicle. Take a look at our guide below to making your own informed decisions.

Find A Tyre Or Automotive Centre Near You

It is always best to look at what automotive companies are within your locality, and what tyre services they offer. For a more straightforward process, choose automotive companies which have an online quote service. This avoids the lengthy hassle of calling up multiple places to find quotes and will make comparing the prices easier. This will enable you to get an instant quote, and determine which company offers the best price, quality and tyre service. You can order your tyres online with us through our online booking form at no inconvenience.

If you are looking for a Dorset tyres company, DCM tyres have autocentres located around this county. Our Dorset tyre locations include Blandford, Sturminster Newton and Shaftesbury. If you are based elsewhere, you would be please to hear that we also operate Wiltshire based tyre services.

Determine The Size

Depending on what type of vehicle you have, the tyres are more than likely to vary in size. Tyres on a motorbike will be different in size compared to that of a car. Similarly, the wheels on a Range Rover will not be the same size as wheels on a Mini Cooper. So, take measurements of your current tyres to make sure you get the correct tyre size for your tyre service.

Decide What Type Of Tyres You Are After

Are you after summer tyres, winter tyres or all-season tyres? There are different types of tyres out there for each purpose. Especially transitioning from one season to the next, it is common for tyres to deflate. This is usually because the cold temperature affects tyre pressure.

Quiet tyres are also another alternative to look into as they are smoother and offer a more comfortable driving experience.

Replace Your Tyres Accordingly

Typical guidelines and recommendations from car manufacturers are that car tyres should be changed 10 years after the manufacturing date. However, this can vary, depending on if there are reasons for your tyres to be replaced sooner. For example, if you have experienced a tyre puncture or damage to your tyres.
