Planning to purchase a new set of tyres?
Buying replacement tyres for your vehicle is a compulsory cost of owning your vehicle. While the cost of living is constantly increasing, it is important to make the right decision when purchasing a set of new tyres to make the most of your investment.
Why are tyres so expensive?
Several factors influence the price of a tyre including its brand technology, materials, product development and size.
Raw materials and shipping
A large part of the price of a tyre is accounted for by the raw materials and cost of manufacturing. A modern tyre consists of natural and synthetic rubber, steel, fillers, different reinforcement materials, softeners, vulcanisers and other chemicals. As the cost of raw materials and energy are both increasing, the cost of the tyre is increasing as well.
Australia has no domestic tyre manufacturing but all tyres are imported in the country. The increasing cost of freight and logistics are reflecting in the tyre prices.
Research and development
Due to the complexity of the construction of a tyre, a significant investment in product development and production is required. JAX Tyres & Auto is a tyre retailer selling tyres from multiple manufacturers. Each tyre manufacturer spends time and money on research to create a unique product. The ultimate goal of investment in research and development is to make the best tyres that maintain their safety properties, even as the tyre wears and, there is a significant cost attached to research and development.
There are many tyre brands to choose from - some brands are considered to be more prestigious than others due to their brand history, innovative products and enhanced safety. These premium brands spend more on research and development and also use higher quality raw materials. These factors increase the cost of the end product but also contribute to premium features of the tyre.
The larger the tyre, the more it will cost. To produce larger tyres, more raw materials are required. A lot of time and money has been invested in research and development in large tyre manufacturing technology and matching wheels will also add to the cost of larger tyres. If you have fitted larger tyres than what your car manufacturer recommends, you will need your wheels regularly aligned to avoid unnecessary or uneven wear of the tyres.
