Aug 25, 2020 |

If you are the kind of person who treats their car like a precious member of the family, then you will know just how important it is to make sure that your tyres are perfect for the vehicle!

Here at Bestdrive, we specialise in matching up tyres to cars for our customers to ensure that they can get the very best out of their driving experience.

It’s all about finding the perfect tyres. With that in mind, here are some of our best tips for choosing the right tyres on the Gold Coast for your specific vehicle.

Doing that extra bit of research really can make the difference!

Tread Depth

You need to make sure that the tyres you select, especially if they are second hand, possess the legal depth of tread to be roadworthy.

Added to that should be a consideration of the kinds of surfaces that you regularly drive on.

For example, if you do a lot of driving over wet roads, then you might want to search for an even deeper tread than the legal minimum.

This will give you much better purchase and connection to the ground and provide a safer driving experience.


Pay attention to the markings on the tyres that you are replacing.

They will have all of the information that you need to replicate printed on them, including details like width, height, radius, diameter, and speed rating.

You need to make sure that your new tyres match up to these specifications because they are designed to match with the dimensions and requirements of your vehicle.

Seasonal Tyres

You will most likely be greeted with the choice between a summer tyre or a winter tyre.

What does this mean? A summer tyre is ideal for general weather, dealing well with both wet and dry roads, whereas a winter tyre is designed to provide much more grip for more adverse and heavy duty weather conditions.

So, if you are looking to invest in a new set of tyres on the Gold Coast, then please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.
