04/07/2011: How about value tyres that add value to your car?
If you are thinking of buying some value tyres, how about considering the idea of buying some tyres that will add value to your car? If money is the first thing on your mind you’ll perhaps be thinking that what you mean by value tyres is actually the lowest price you’re likely to have to pay. But if you stop for a minute, you will perhaps agree that the idea is not quite as daft as it might sound; especially if you are thinking of selling on your car. Because if your new value tyres add value to the car, make it easier to sell or sell for a higher price that may be the answer.
In fact for many motorists today, value tyres might well be thought of as those that add style and prestige to the vehicle; indeed this is a very important consideration in some sectors of the value tyres market, particularly for those people who own sports, 4 x 4 or luxury cars. Admittedly this is quite a long way from thinking about value tyres as being cheap, budget or low cost tyres but you have to admit it’s an interesting point of view. However it does make more sense when you think about fitting winter and summer tyres; especially in view of our recent bad winters.
This way of looking at value tyres has recently been proposed by leading UK car magazine Auto Express. In fact the magazine has actually suggested that fitting high-quality tyres can help to improve the value its readers’ cars. Their idea of value tyres in this case is to consider different tyres for summer and winter use and they have actually named a selection of tyres which they think might be suitable. There is little doubt that these tyres will add value whilst not being what you might immediately think of as being value tyres in the usual competitive pricing terms.
In fact for value tyres you can read top-of-the-range tyres but they will certainly add value whilst delivering better performance, comfort and handling as well as higher mileage. And remember that quality tyres can actually also be value tyres if they last longer and need less frequent replacement than cheaper tyres. Check out Auto Express magazine for the full details but these top-drawer value tyres will certainly add value, style and prestige to your vehicle.
