20/04/2011: Will car manufacturers own brands affect car tyres prices?
For anyone interested in car tyres prices, the fact that Renault has announced that it will become the first vehicle manufacturer to offer customers an own-branded tyre is a fairly significant development. With car tyres prices starting at £36 per tyre fully fitted, Renault anticipates that its Motrio range of budget priced tyres will appeal to drivers of older Renault vehicles. Coupled with the fact that Renault has recently lowered its new car prices by up to £2,000 these lower car tyres prices also lend weight to Renault’s claim that is helping to drive down the cost of motoring even further. Which has got to be good news for the average motorist hasn’t it?
Renault is keen to stress that lower car tyres prices do not in any way indicate lower quality. Indeed, the Motrio range has been tested to Renault’s strict specifications to ensure owners can be certain that the performance is excellent and that the car tyres prices reflect their outstanding value for money. Two tread patterns are featured in the range: the Motrio Impulsion is designed for comfortable driving on smaller models such as the Twingo and Clio, whereas the Impulsion+ is more focused on the firm’s sportier models and the rest of the range. In every case, the performance and value of these new products is in no way compromised by these lower car tyres prices.
In fact despite the highly competitive nature of these car tyres prices, Renault says the new tread patterns provide almost silent running, even at high speeds, as well as greater steering accuracy and braking efficiency. Moreover, the lasting value of these lower car tyres prices is confirmed by the fact that thanks to their longevity, motorists will also benefit from reduced maintenance costs. After servicing, tyre replacement is one of the highest value items when maintaining a vehicle and Renault is proud of the fact that these car tyres prices, which in many cases are significantly less expensive than premium brands, will help motorists to reduce their costs without sacrificing on quality.
Will other manufacturers follow Renault’s lead in helping to reduce car tyres prices? It’s worth keeping a look out because many would agree that lower car tyres prices are in everyone’s interest. Perhaps the most important point is that a major vehicle manufacturer is prepared to put their established reputation behind an own-brand range. So let’s all hope that in future lower car tyres prices will help to bring a bit of joie de vivre into everyone’s motoring life.
