Choosing the best tyre for your Commodore

How to get the best deal when purchasing Commodore Tyres!

In the old days you drove your nice Commodore into the tyre shop and they threw on a set of standard Radial Commodore tyres and away you went.

Today however we find that the choice and cost is so wide that you almost need a degree to make the choice when buying tyres for your Commodore or any other car for that matter.

At Tyrehouse we have a team of trained professionals to make the job of picking the right Commodore tyres much easier.


Here are some factors you should consider when choosing your Commodore Tyres:

Tread life of the tyres will determine how long a set of tires would last.

Life expectancy of the tyres is estimated by the manufacturer under governmental guidelines after a field testing. The higher the tread life grade, the longer the tyre will last.

Wet weather tyres are essential if you live in a climate where it rains often.

Four-season tyres are the best option for wet climates. If it snows often, then you should also have a set of winter tyres that you will switch for during the colder season. So if you live up in the snow country around Perisher etc this is definitely a consideration

Speed rating is an often underestimated factor in choosing the right set Commodore Tyres

In the Australia the speed limit hardly ever climbs over 120 Kilometers an hour. Speed ratings show the safe top speed of a tyre and are marked with letters, with Q as lowest and V as highest. You can always go for the ultra-performing tire for speedy sports cars, but this quality is something that you will almost never use.

High- or low-profile?

Low-profile tyres look really stylish but these tires cannot always bear the hardships of the real road with all the bumps and cracks. Plus, with low-profile tyres the wheel is getting damaged faster. Higher-profile tyres often mean a safer and smoother ride.

Here are the main questions you will need to answer when purchasing new Commodore tyres:

  • What are the Commodore Tyres used for? Touring/Leisure
  • Is ride comfort and low noise are important, or sporty, more enthusiastic driving.
  • What type of drivers are they?
  • Is price or fuel efficiency a primary concern?

With the new Commodore you could be looking at a small fortune for new Commodore tyres so it is important you get the right advice from the professionals.
