Planning to get new tyres for your vehicle? You’re probably wondering how much it would cost you.
To assist you in your purchasing decision, we prepared a comprehensive guide containing a cost break-down for new tyres and valuable information on various tyre types.
When it comes to the cost of new tyres in Australia, several factors come into play. As well as tyre size and type (ie. on or off road tyres), the tyre quality plays a big role. Here are the differences between budget, mid-range and premium tyres.
If you’re looking for the most affordable option, budget tyres are worth considering. These tyres offer decent performance and reliability at a lower price point.
Mid-range tyres strike a balance between affordability and enhanced performance. They have better traction, durability, and grip compared to budget tyres.
For those seeking top-of-the-line performance, premium tyres are the ultimate choice. These tyres offer exceptional traction, handling, and durability.
Regular passenger tyres are the go-to option for most cars. They offer reliable performance on regular road surfaces and are suitable for everyday driving. These kinds of tyres are priced at around $100 to $200 per tyre.
Here’s how much you can expect to pay, depending on whether you are after budget tyres, or a serious set of performance rubber.
On the other hand, all terrain tyres designed for off-road use are commonly seen on SUVs and 4x4 vehicles.
Due to their specialised construction and enhanced capabilities, these tyres are priced higher. Expect to pay a 25-50% premium over the price for regular tyres
When considering new tyres, determine whether you need to replace all four tyres or just one and two. Many tyre shops offer discounts for customers who choose to replace all four tyres at once.
The cost of replacing four tyres simultaneously will vary depending on the tyre and brand chosen. For budget tyres, the total cost can range from approximately $240 to $600 for a set of four tyres. On the other hand, a set of premium tyres is priced at around $1,200 to $2,400.
Buying new tyres in Australia is not just about the cost. Factors like tyre performance, longevity, and safety should also be considered.
While it might be tempting to go for cheaper options, it’s important to find a balance between price and quality to ensure the tyres meet your specific needs.
