How to pick the right tyres

Many things affect the optimal tyre choice. Before you make a decision, think about the key factors that affect your choice.

The weather

The climate where you live is a major consideration. For example, if temperatures drop below 7°C during the winter months, you should consider driving on a set of winter tyres. In some countries, you’re legally obliged to do so.

How you drive

If you do a lot of miles, or if you like to push your car’s capabilities, you may want to take a closer look at the tyre’s performance characteristics to help you find a tyre that suits your style of driving. Many Dunlop tyres are designed with higher performance in mind.

Your vehicle

The tyres that come with your car (also known as OE - original equipment tyres) are selected because they’re well suited to your car, but that doesn’t mean they’re necessarily the best ones for you. Check your manual for other recommendations, or do some further research yourself.

Your budget

You’ll find the recommended price of all Dunlop tyres on our website to help inform you. Pay attention to the EU Tyre Label guide too – it will help you find tyres that are particularly long-lasting. Finally, don’t forget that your local Dunlop dealer can offer personalised service.
