Tyre prices in Nigeria of different brands and models

06/11/2019

Are you always confused about the right tyres to choose for your vehicle? Or are you that busy type who always gets ripped off by his mechanic? This article will give you an insight into the different type varieties and price list of the most popular brands in Nigeria.

There is a saying, that “the car you drive reveals a lot about your personality.” There may be a few exceptions but this often happens to be the case. A rich dude with an adrenalin lust would probably go for a Lamborghini Gallardo to express his taste and class. But just as you won’t slide into any pair of shoes to complement any dress theme, so can’t you use automobile tyres indiscriminately. You can define your style with any automobile you want.

However, slamming 16-inch wheelers on a Lamborghini will not be cool. The basic function of the tyres is for mobility but your car’s shoes do a lot more than that. They are also an important component for aesthetics, speed limit, and ride comfort.

So, do you know the ideal tyres for your vehicle? We did a research that engaged dozens of drivers and found out to our surprise, that majority of the respondents answered negative. This means that many people do not have the slightest idea of the specs they should demand from a dealer when changing car tyres. For this reason, Naijacarnews.com deems it pertinent to share its expertise on tyres and also inform you on the latest tyre prices in Nigeria.

1. What are the types of tyres?

When it comes to the types of car tyres that there are, things could really get confusing. Car tyres can be classified according to seasons, standards, or even vehicle types. However, we’ll be sticking with a few of the subcategories to make it simple.

Generally, there are many types of car tyre: winter tyre, summer tyre, and all season tyre. Other types include run-flat tyre and high performance tyre.

  • Winter tyres

Winter tyres are built for extreme traction because of the weather in which they are being used. Manufacturers apply a generous amount of grooves and sipes that holds firm on snowy, slippery, or wet ground. The materials used in building them allows them to retain flexibility in subzero temperatures.

  • Summer tyres

Sporting a tread arrangement that allows it to resist against aquaplaning, summer tyres are built for more challenging tasks, and are designed to thrive when at 7°c or higher. Incorporating a more flexible rubber compound, summer tyres improve stability and clasp.

  • All season tyres

As you’ll guess, all season tyres combine the technologies of summer and winter tyre to create a versatile product that performs well in any weather. However, because this technology mixes the specs of two different seasons, they are not fully dedicated for either summer or winter.

  • Run Flat Tyres

Run flat tyres are built with a safety orientation. They are designed to drastically reduce any potential situation that may occur if they suddenly get punctured. Their walls are more dense and reinforced compared to standard tyre types.

  • High Performance Tyres

 Now these are the types of tyres you should have on a Lamborghini. High performance tyres are built to withstand high speed, and are used in the motorsport industry.

3. Things to look out for when buying tyres in Nigeria

Are you looking to replace your car tyres? Are you planning on buying used or new ones? Whatever your choice is, do not ever go for low-quality tyres, especially ones from China that has recently flooded the market. Naijacarnews knows the risks substandard tyres pose to your life and the health of your car. We therefore strongly recommend you buy new tyres directly from the company or from an accredited dealer.

Also, you should use car battery tester to test the battery you want to buy. And the last thing is, if affordable, go for a new battery with strong capacity. Most battery failures are related to low battery capacity.
