Separating Premium and Budget tyres

Published On 07-Jun-2016 06:15:44By TyreDekho Team

Premium Budget tyres

Tyres make an impact on a vehicle's performance on all levels.  They provide grip for the car, help in braking and cornering, and give it a much needed stability when driving.  For this reason, choosing the right set of tyres for your car is a serious decision. Therefore, knowledge and background about tyres becomes a much needed ally when making such decisions.

A range of factors define good or bad tyres, but the most important element to be considered is the quality and nature of the tyre. Here, you have two broad categories for the tyre to segregate into; budget and premium tyre types.

So, what are they, and how do they differ?

The first thing you need to have in mind here is that over the past few decades, the number of cars and the quantity of car drivers has shot up incredibly. The needs of the driving world are ever-growing and incessant. And these needs are catered to by a very wide and ever growing range of tyre manufacturers . The pool of tyre companies are varying and contrasting, and each of them develops and sticks to their own model of manufacture.

Among the tyre companies flooding our world, a few of them stand out. They are renowned and recogniZed brands, known to deliver high quality products. Some of these companies may include Michelin, Pirelli and Continental. These companies have carved a niche for themselves and the tyres brought out by them are called as premium tyres.

On the other side of the field are the mid and lower range manufacturers, the lesser known brands who may not be heard of. This category could stretch to encompass a massive number of tyre brands from day to day life. These brands come with a smaller reputation, and deliver lower quality than the premium brands. Tyres from these companies are known as budget tyres.

Does it matter, and if so, what's the difference between them?

A tyre is the very base element in the needs of a vehicle. Different types of tyres bestow the vehicle with differing aspects. Therefore, when choosing a tyre, one must keep in mind the benefits and downsides of the particular radial, for the vehicle's performance hangs over it. In this argument, we need an insight into the production methods of the various companies to bring to light their essential features.

Premium manufacturers hold an expertise in what they do. Brands such as Pirelli and Continental bring the best within their reach to mold their tyres with. In addition to this, these massive companies base their engineering process on intense study, research and an expansive knowledge resource commanded by them. For tyres, these premium brands ensure that their radials draw the best benefits possible, with latest technology and cutting edge research conducted prior to the manufacturing. As a result, tyres delivered by premium companies have high standard reflecting on every facet. Beside just being of high quality, these radials ensure a host of benefits.

  • They are made with the best handling and safety in mind.
  • They yield a better traction and grip, and are usually able to tread on a range of wet and dry surfaces.
  • Companies like Goodyear and Michelin imbibe their tyres with sturdier and hardened compounds, and this ensures a longer durability and tread life.
  • The tyres brought by premium brands are made with far better braking and cornering capacity.
  • They give the vehicle firmer balance at speeds, and provide better stability when cornering.
  • They bring a better fuel efficiency to the car, and help control emission.
  • They also yield a lesser road noise.

The only downside with premium tyres is their high cost and low affordability range.

In the case of budget tyres, we see the opposite, with price ranges suiting almost everyone, but with quality suffering on the other hand. These brands make the legal compliance their base option, and we don't see much quality beyond that threshold. They are of inferior quality, and, thereby an economic option.

  • They have lesser grip than premium manufacturers.
  • They provide lesser comfort.
  • They are meant for a base level of quality.
  • They may not be of very high durability and life.
  • They do not enhance the car's fuel efficiency as much as the premium wear does.
  • They have higher noise levels than their premium made counterparts.

The range of tyre brands and products are ever increasing, and most people can hardly catch up with the variance of the tyre industry. Consumers need an overview of which radial to approach to get their needs fulfilled. Choosing between the two categories means having to decide what suits you and your car. If you could do with lower quality but more feasible prices, budget tyres would fit your needs. But if you insist on high quality, and are willing to raise expenses to their very limit, premium tyres would fill the post.
