It’s all too easy to take your car tyres for granted. Many of us don’t give them a second thought until we get a puncture. However, it’s important not to underestimate just how vital your car tires are to your – and your car’s – health.

Not only do car tyres provide the traction necessary for acceleration and braking, but they also bear the load of the entire vehicle. They allow for safe change of direction, absorb shocks and can even impact the noise-levels inside your car. Forget the pistons and the pumps; your tyres are your car’s hardest-working components.

With this in mind, it’s easy to understand why buying the best tyre brand you can afford is so crucial. However, with hundreds of brands to choose from, trying to work which ones to spend your money on can be difficult. Here’s our guide to the best car tyre brands of 2021.

Maxxis

With a wide range of all-season tyres available such as the Premitra AP3 and the HP5, they offer excellent all-round performance and outstanding traction at an affordable price. They’re a top quality tyre at a budget price.

BFGoodrich

Also known simply as BFG, this brand produces some of the toughest off-road tyres in the world. Capturing the spirit of adventure, their tyres are used by some of the world’s leading off-road racers for events such as the Paris/Dakar race, so you know they can cope with just about anything. BFG also produce a wide range of on/off road tyres suitable for use on 4x4 cars that spend as much time in the urban jungle as they do dune-bashing in the desert.

A worthwhile investment tyre if you own a 4x4 and enjoy weekend off-road adventures.
