Here at Tyre Shopper, we know that looking after your car can get pricey, and while we promise to deliver premium branded tyres at the best and lowest price possible, the costs can add up for anyone working to a tight budget. With that in mind, we came up with a wide selection of cheap budget tyres to make replacing the tyres on your car even more affordable for those who can’t or don’t want to pay for the major brands.
Budget car tyres are a cost-effective solution which help maximise performance as well as keeping your spend to a minimum. All of our options have been carefully selected from reputable manufacturers and all our budget tyres are covered by the same guarantees that apply to all our brands, giving you extra peace of mind.
Of course, you may have some questions about the ins and outs of cheap budget tyres, so read on to find out about our range and whether they’re the right choice for you.
What are budget tyres?
Budget car tyres are usually the cheapest tyres you can find, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that they’re low quality. Although they’re unlikely to live up to the high standards set by premium brand tyres or even mid-range tyres, they’re actually a great way of saving money in certain situations. Here’s a quick rundown on everything you need to know about cheap budget tyres.
Who are cheap budget tyres best suited to?
Beyond being a choice for those spending within a limit, budget tyres are best for those who only drive infrequently and therefore have low annual mileage. This is because budget tyres are likely to wear more quickly than their more expensive alternatives.
What are the main differences between premium and budget tyres?
As well as the quicker wear factor, cheap budget tyres are also usually a little less grippy and adaptable than more expensive options and so aren’t as well suited to motorway driving. But, if you primarily drive on main roads or lanes, they could be perfect for you.
Are budget tyres safe?
One of the main reasons for the difference in price between budget and premium tyres is the amount of research and development that has gone into the products. This means that budget tyres are generally less predictable as they’ve been through less in-depth testing. However, this doesn’t mean they’re unsafe. In fact, in dry conditions, the differences between budget and premium tyres probably won’t even be noticeable. It’s only when the roads are wet that you might notice increased stopping distances and slightly decreased grip.
These downsides don’t mean you’re putting yourself at risk by using budget tyres, just that you should adapt your driving style to account for the difference.

Are budget tyres good value?
Budget tyres can offer excellent value, especially if you are using them infrequently and only for main road driving, as recommended. They can be significantly cheaper than premium tyres and, although they won’t last as long or offer the same level of performance, are perfect for a second car that only gets used once a week, as a short-term solution or in place of part-worn tyres.
