Default What Are The Questions We Should Ask To Our Self While Buying A Tyre?

In Automotive, tyres are one of the most important part of the vehicle, but how could we understand the features of tyres.

Just to elaborate on that: The actual parameters used in designing a tyre are perhaps the most secretive in the automotive industry, but the parameters in the link above provide all the information needed for a normal driver.

There's more reading into the stats:

Treadwear also denotes the tyre's mechanical grip: Softer compounds (and lower treadwear) provide slightly increased coefficients of friction with the pavement, but as long as it's not a big grose difference than it's not a game changer.

Temperature ratings also indicate (to some degree) the operating temperature of the tyre. Tyres heat up and provide better performance. A tyre with a high temperature ratin might very well take longer to get to that point.

Speed and load ratings as well as temperature rating also indicate to some degree as to the tyre's ridigity, which effects the ride quality and performance. It's why speed ratings are important even if the car doesn't travel at those speeds, and why the speed rating must match the car specs and be shared between all tyres on the car.

All these parameters - speed, load and tyre pressure ratings - are connected: The maximum load a tyre can carry as par it's load specifications, is achieved AT the maximum speed of the speed rating and at the maximum pressure of the pressure rating, plus some safety tolerance.

As for tyre age: The maximum limit is hughly dependant on what you are trying to preserve in the tyre. If you are trying to preserve the tyre structure than road tyres could last six years and stored tyres could last a decade. If you're trying to preserve safety through the performance envelope of the tyre than it's more like four years. Spares can be used considerably longer, though.
