The Truth About Buying New Tyres (a.k.a. Tires) | Auto Expert John Cadogan | Australia

  • Added:  2 months ago
  • Before we kick off on this: I’m in ‘Straya. We spell it with a ‘Y’, like, I dunno, everywhere on earth except Retardistan, which is also called ‘Merica. Knock yourself out in the comments feed, on this, Jethro. Say hi to Jim-Bob and Ellie-Mae. Enjoy the spit roast. And all the other hillbilly fun. There’s a whole world outside the USA. How long has that been the case.
    I’m John Cadogan, from AutoExpert.com.au - the place where Aussie new car buyers save thousands off their next new cars. Hit me up on the website for that.
    Welcome to another ‘What the FAQ’ - which oxygenates your more common questions and (I hope) equips you with the facts you need to jump these vexatious hurdles.
    There are about 12 million cars on Australian roads, which means - ballpark - 50 million tyres. And that means replacement tyres, even in a global backwater such as this, are big business. I get several recurring questions on this, which all boil down to:
    Which tyres should I buy?
    The basics are: They have to be the right size - and the right load rating. You can choose a tyre with a load rating greater than the minimum, but not less than that. That’s a detail the tyre retailer usually looks after.
    I’m kinda passionate about tyres because for five or six years I ran all the Wheels Magazine annual tyre tests. We conscripted the assistance of a lot of local tyre engineers to get the testing protocols right for those tests, and as a result, I learned a lot more than I ever thought I would about tyres.
    So the first thing you need to know is that the manufacturers of quality tyres all have a real problem: Tyres are all black and round, so the really good ones look exactly the same as the really shit ones. It’s a marketing challenge par excellence.
    If you’re a non-technical person, it can be quite hard to believe a good tyre that looks exactly the same as a shit tyre, but costs maybe $100 bucks more is actually that much better. But - trust me on this - it is.
    There are a great many urban myths on various tyre brands - like some are allegedly quieter. Some are allegedly better at grip in the wet - whatever.
    Having stood on the side of the track, set up the timing beams, briefed the race driver, consulted with the expert engineers, I can tell you those brand-based myths are bullshit.
    The number one thing to remember when you’re buying replacement tyres is that all the known, quality brands: Pirelli, Dunlop, Goodyear, Bridgestone, Continental, Toyo, Michelin, Yokohama - et cetera - you know the ones I mean - all those quality brands perform about the same as each other, for a particular size and category of tyre.
    Obviously a Pirelli on a Porsche is very likely to out-perform a Yokohama on a Yaris. We’re talking apples-for-apples here.
    I’d include Hankook and Kumho on that ‘quality brands’ list, too - they are definitely up there, at least they are today. And I say this on the basis of trackside measurements - testing - that I actually conducted. There’s no doubt. And FYI - I have no commercial affiliation with any tyre manufacturer.
    The number two thing is: Don’t ask for brand-type advice at the retail coal face. Retailers are incentivised by different manufacturers - so there are different agendas at play. The retailer invariable recommends the tyre that’s right for him, commercially, not necessarily you.
    I’d get three different quotes on three different quality brands, over the phone, and go with the cheapest one. It really is that simple. But asking brand advice from a tyre retailer is like walking into a Mazda dealer and asking him if Toyota is any good. It’s not a place where unbiased advice is forthcoming.

    Very good video, the difference in tread design clears a few doubts. I do have a genuine question, how does one obtain high/ultra high performance tyres for older vehicles that carry sizes such as 14", 15" and 16" in my particular case 15" where it must be period correct and aftermarket rims aren't an option?

    Only option I have found so far is Sumitomo and they do have a moderate directional performance tyre in the 215/60R15 that I require. I have not found any other quality tyre of that size, only shit no name brands that literally get bogged on wet bitumen on a slight incline, embarrassingly that actually happen to me.

    There are always differences which anyone can poke fun at another. I am proud to be an American and I would never take a pun seriously that is aimed at the US. After all we have freedoms which may or may not exist in one country over another.
    Your ability to speak with an Aussie accent doesn't mean that your speech is faulty it just means that you grew up where that is the custom or pattern of speech. To express how you think how you should behave is how you were raised. if your inability to express your thoughts by only using the language that your grew up with is, well lets just say that you would not be invited to speak around my children.

The only thing between your car and the road is your tyre's. They determine how well it stops, corners and mostly your and others safety. DON"T BUY RETREADS/CHEAP TYRE'S. You will only spend more in the long run. Good video and I hope people listen to it. Thanks from the yank.

    Good general article. Just FYI tyres aren't "injection" molded. The are built (with a fair amount of labour) layer upon layer on an expanding drum (inner liner, sidewalls /apex/bead, steel belts, cap ply then tread rubber slab. Molds are pressed around the tyre and tyre is expanded into the mold cavity. Vent "pips" or these days micro vents are to release the excess rubber and any trapped air.

    Proper tire pressure is also critical. Inflate tires to PSI (s) indicated on drivers side door jam sticker, not max PSI rating on tire. Use a quality dial gauge and check pressure every couple of weeks or when temp changes more than 20deg. Do this when tires are cold and not in the sun (morning is a good time). Pressure changes about 1 PSI for every 10 deg temperature change.

    Wondering about tyre performance over the life of the tyres , rather than fronting up to a test area testing sets of new tyres. I used to drive 60-70,000 km per year and found a couple of the major brands John mentioned to completely change character when they went past 40% worn or so. Moved on to other brands with much better results.

  • Teddy Spot
    Teddy Spot 21 day ago

    Thanks John, learnt alot from your vid on tyres. One thing I'm still not sure of is whether a single spare can service the four asymetric Michelin Pilot Super Sports (in two different widths) standard on my car. Fronts are 225/40 R18, and rears 245/35 R18. Will one spare in either 225/40 or 245/35 get me to nearest town and tyre retailer? I'd feel more confident doing the south-west West Australia with a proper spare. At the moment I've only got the in-car compressor and tyre sealant BMW provides for my car. Also, it currently has an open-diffential. Will changing it to a limited-slip diffential impact whether it can handle one side on 245/35 and other side on 225/40? Hope you can help. Cheers.

  • Ronan Rogers
    Ronan Rogers 25 days ago

    Interesting thoughts, John.

    In Germany, where I live, tyres are independently (and thoroughly) tested by several organisations, and the data is published for consumers. This includes accurate decibel measurements, and of course wet & dry stopping distances etc etc etc. This is proper testing, R&D style.

    People living outside of Germany can access that data as well, thanks to the internet (in German, but pretty easy to translate).

    I drive on autobahns at very high speeds (double Australian speed limits), in addition to riding my KTM 1290 on these roads.

    Riding a motorcycle (for 35 years) has always impressed on me the criticality of tyres - as far as I'm concerned, tyres are the #1 safety device for any vehicle, with brakes a close second, and suspension coming in third.

    I'd rather have all of those working well than a series of curtain and knee airbags (although I'd rate a frontal airbag as highly as tyres. At the end of the day, the airbag is going to be a potential lifesaver, but great tyres might mean it's never tested).

  • Jim McDaniels
    Jim McDaniels Month ago

    John thank you for the great report.
    I have usually gone with the cheapest tire or the next cheapest if the government tread wear rating sticker is a good amount higher for say the next cheapest.
    The tire companies don't seem to want us to look at this tread wear number and do not place it on their site, but instead at the mileage warranty.
    I have bought expensive tires in many years past and can say it doesn't seem like they were any better than the cheap ones.
    And as far as warranties, they always seem to have an excuse not to give any warranty towards the next tires or I'm in a bind to replace the bad tire and can't go back to the same place to use the warranty. I wish they offered a discount for no warranty as an option.

    Often people say that even though the tread wear rating is a test designed to compare tire life of different tires, some people say the test is conducted by the tire manufacturer so they are not accurate. I'm not so sure that because the tire maker does their own test that the rating is no longer extremely helpful.
    So I noticed you said that the cheaper tires don't corner and especially brake as well but you didn't state how much of a reduced braking distance the more expensive tires give.
    It seems it's a balance between softer rubber that brakes better or harder rubber that wears longer or perhaps expensive rubber formulas that offer both....
    Also are some tires treads deeper than others therefore more rubber to wear out?
    Perhaps you could give more info these points.
