New tyres - depending on the brand and specs - can get expensive. Giving your loved one a fresh set is a practical gift: they save money, plus you got them something they definitely need. Winning!

If your loved one is driving around in old tyres with worn-out tread, a great way to show how much you care about them - and their safety - is to give them a new set of tyres.


  • They're for the long haul...until they need a new set


When you give the gift of tyres, it will be a gift that will last a long time. It's not something they'll use once and toss or sit there and not contribute to their daily life.

New tyres are a long-lasting gift - until it's time for them to get a new set again. Their gift can last a good 4 to 5 years with proper maintenance, depending on how they drive. Getting them a yearly tyre maintenance service is a great gift idea for next year as well.


  • It's Unique


A fresh set of tyres is a gift that will stand out above all the other gifts your loved one will receive. It's unique and unexpected and an excellent way to impress someone. They'll surely remember you every time the recipient goes for a drive.


What to consider before buying tyres as a gift?

  • Size

Before you go to your tyre dealer, be sure you get the correct tyre size details of the car owned by who you plan to give tyres as a gift. Check the tyre's sidewall as well as its owner's manual if you get the chance.


  • Speed & Load Rating

What kind of tyres do they need? What type of car do they drive, and what are their usual everyday driving conditions? All these factors will help you determine which tyres to choose as a gift.

The pitfalls of buying tyres as a gift include:

  • Purchasing the wrong tyre size or tyre type
  • The driver may not like how their new tyres feel or how their car will handle differently.
