Is it worth opting for premium tyres for my Volkswagen up!?
When it comes to choosing tyres for your Volkswagen up! and the relative benefits of each tyre brand, the scale of bang for your buck is usually from Budget, to Mid Range, to Premium, and finally Manufacturer Approved.
Budget tyres will do the job if they're the only ones you can afford, but the lower build quality will often mean you need to replace them more frequently costing more in the long run.
Premium tyres make the most of the technical research conducted by premium tyre manufacturers such as Pirelli, Goodyear, and Michelin to create a generally more robust, higher performing tyre compared to budget alternatives.
Manufacturer approved tyres, on the other hand, are specifically developed and approved to meet the requirements of your Volkswagen up!. They go through rigorous testing to ensure that they can take anything you throw at them and still shine.
Opting for premium or manufacturer approved tyres, while slightly costlier at outset, will usually result in a lower lifetime cost because you won't have to replace them as often, not to mention the added performance benefits that these tyres usually possess such as improved fuel efficiency, braking and handling.
You then might pay more for specific tyre features such as Run Flat tyres which stay inflated when punctured, Extra Load tyres that can hold heavy cargos and are ideal for vans, and rim protectors which protect the wheel rims from curb damage.
