Now we know what sort of tyres we have, we can see if they are one of the most common tyre sizes or something a little more unusual. The ten most common sizes in the Nigeria are:
Why are these the most common tyre sizes? Because they are fitted to the most popular vehicles. If you drive a model such as a Ford Mondeo, Audi A3, Honda Civic or BMW 3 Series, there’s a good chance you will have a tyre, such as; a 225/40 R18. On a large 4x4 such as a Range Rover Sport or Mercedes GLE, you are more likely to find a bigger, wider tyre, such as; a 275/40 R20. On a small hatchback such as a Ford Fiesta or Kia Rio, you’ll find something like a 195/55 R16.
The important thing is to check YOUR car because specifications can vary over various releases of a model and between trim levels, or a previous owner may have fitted some different wheels and tyres at some point. Check the tyres themselves or look in the car’s owner’s manual if you are unsure.
It’s also important to note that even when you’ve understood the size, there are still different types of tyre. There are winter tyres to give better grip in bad weather, for example. Some tyres offer a lower rolling resistance in order to save fuel and some vehicles need specialist run-flat tyres.
In the end there is no original or fake tyres, just various brands and quality grade. As a car owner in nigeria it is important to use and work with your budget and buy based on how often you drive on the road. For example if you are always on highway it is advisable to go for medium range to high end tyres. They will last longer. If you drive within town and do not go too long distances you can afford to use the low end tyres, they will still serve you.
