You may go through stages where you feel as though you're constantly changing your tyres, be it through punctures, general wear and tear or old age.
Here at Tyre Shopper, we understand that our customers need value for their money and that's where our expert advisers are here to help.
Our guide explains why some tyres are more durable than others, plus we offer some tips on how to avoid more wear than is necessary.
Premium brands are often considered to be more durable than their budget counterparts.
This is because premium manufacturers such as Michelin are able to invest a great deal of research and development, utilising the latest technology and materials to produce long-lasting tyres.
Inevitably, this means that while they do cost a bit more than standard tyres, they're certainly great value for money.
Just because you might see a label saying budget tyres, don't automatically dismiss them for not being as good as other tyre types.
A number of the cheap tyre brands are owned by premium manufacturers, with the same research and design of the top makes filtered down the channel, albeit a compromise in terms of some features.
We stock a range of budget tyres for manufacturers such as Westlake, Fortuna and Minerva.
Read tyre labels
The new EU tyre labelling rules mean that all passenger tyres now being manufactured in Europe must show these labels, which give a grading for external noise, wet grip and fuel efficiency.
Simply understanding the labels can save you a lot of money and inform your new tyres purchase.
Consider your driving style
It's not just tyres you should look at, if it's durability you're after.
How fast you accelerate has a great deal to do with the health of your tyres. Driving at high speeds with continuous braking increases tyre wear and inevitably means a harsher ride.
Check your tyre pressure
Driving with inadequate air in your tyres can also cause them to wear down quickly but also increase your vehicle's carbon dioxide emissions and fuel consumption.
If you're not sure what the correct tyre pressure is for your motor, check your manufacturer's handbook.
