You can find your car’s tyre size written on the sidewall of your current set of tyres, in your vehicle’s handbook or on a sticker in the door jam or inside the fuel cap door. When buying new tyres you should only go for ones that have these same numbers to ensure a good fit.
When looking at your tyre sidewall you will see a set of numbers as outlined in the diagram below. This is your tyre size. Simply read the number from left to right, the numbers relate to the different aspects outlined below.
For example, if our technician asked you what the rim size of your tyre was, this would be noted on the sidewall as R16 or R17. Thus you could say your tyre is a 16 or 17 inch.
If you're speaking to a technician you can simply read of the tyre size in on go and they will understand the size you need an be able to advise on the most suitable tyre for your driving style and budget.
Part worn tyres are tyres that have already been used on another vehicle and have been taken off because its either had a puncture or their previous owner feels that there is not enough tread on it for them and their vehicle, simple!!!
Our main issue at Glenside Recovery is in relation to the integrity of the casing, you simply can't see any damage that may have occurred to it, why would you? The typical motorist won't know if the tyre is damaged, has been run flat so that the side walls are compromised or if it has had a puncture in the shoulder and repaired. You just will never know the true history of the tyre.
The main reason for buying a part-worn tyre is the cost! Currently within a few miles of our base in Maghaberry, you can buy a 205/55R16 part-worn tyre with 4mm of tread for around £35, that works out at £8.75 per mm. Now compare that to a brand new economy tyre with 8mm of tread for £56, that's £7.07 per mm. It just doesn't make any sense, a short term solution that's covered in danger.
Others will have a different opinion on our view here at Glenside Recovery, mainly because we sell new tyres and never, ever touch part worn tyres, it is not worth the risk.
