If you are attempting to sell your car with cheap tyres attached, a potential buyer with a keen eye will likely ask you to lower your price. Those who recognise cheap tyres will know they are of lesser quality and may want to buy better ones instead. Therefore, they will likely lower their offering price meaning the saving you attempted to make buy buying cheap tyres have resulted in a loss down the track.
The high price of some tyres are so high because of the amount of rigorous research that has been put into designing them to be as safe as possible. When a lot of effort has gone into making the product as quality as possible, the price will naturally go up. Thus, if you are buying an expensive tyre, it usually means that it is far safer than a tyre that is cheap.
If you buy tyres from a source that is nefarious or unreliable and get into an accident as a result of the tyres malfunction, you could be held liable for it. Insurance companies are traditionally knit picky when paying out an insurance claim. So if you’ve gotten into an accident and your cheap tyres could have potentially played a role in causing the accident, you may struggle to file a successful claim – even if you were driving safe as responsively.
When you buy expensive tyres and rotate them periodically, they will last quite a while. However, cheap tyres will begin to show significant wear and tear much quicker, meaning you will need to buy a new set quicker than if you had just bought expensive tyres. Less durability also means, as previously mentioned, that the tyres will be less safe as they will be more prone to splitting, bursting and cracking.
If you are driving with cheap tyres, it’s likely that your car will need to work harder in order to drive at an optimum performance. Over time, this can significantly reduce your car’s quality.
