Pick the right tyres for your SUV

Black shiny SUV

Did you know that SUVs are a popular choice among Australians? SUV sales will stay strong over the next few years thanks to the increased availability of models and more people wanting to buy these vehicles.

Among the most popular SUVs in Australia are the Renault Koleos, Nissan X-TRAIL, MG HS, Haval H6, Honda CR-V, and Mitsubishi Outlander, just to name a few.

Some of the main reasons why Australians are purchasing more and more SUVs are:

  • The wagon body offers convenience for a busy family with a hectic routine.
  • The higher seating gives a better view of the road, assisting in a safer drive.
  • Big SUVs are great for towing while still offering a comfortable ride.

What tyres fit my SUV?

SUVs are larger and, in most cases, designed to carry more weight than passenger vehicles such as sedans, so they should be equipped with tyres designed to handle these extra loads.

Many SUVs are typically fitted with tyres that are larger and wider than standard tyres, with a tough and strong rubber composition.

How can I choose the right tyres for my SUV?

There are plenty of tyre options available on the market, as well as a wide range of SUVs ranging from commuter-friendly models to supercars that rival ultra-performance SUVs. They cover a wide range of vehicles, including the Toyota Rav4 and Mazda CX3, as well as the Porsche Cayenne and Lamborghini Urus.

When purchasing new tyres for your SUV, some basic factors to consider include speed rating, size, and load rating. You can find this information in your car’s owner's manual.

You should also think about the road conditions and terrain on which you frequently drive. If you frequently drive in an urban environment, for example, you may want to consider tyres designed specifically for sealed surfaces. On the other hand, if you generally drive on rough terrain, AT (All-Terrain) tyres can provide your SUV with better performance.

Additionally, you may consider the features that matter most to you, including comfort, durability, road noise, safety, and fuel efficiency. These factors and features will help you choose the tyres that best suit your needs.
