There are a plethora of things to consider when you want to buy a new car tyre. Its performance, functionality in particular season, gripping power, tread life warranty and fuel economy capabilities are some of the things that most people consider while buying a new set of car tyres. While these preferences may vary from person to person, there is one criterion that car owners have little control over- the tyre-size. 

Every car comes with a specific tyre-size. Even if you are not an expert on automobiles, you must have noticed that the tyres of a 4x4 are quite different from that of a high-end sports car, for example. The tyre size apt for each vehicle is mentioned in its owner’s manual as well as the sidewalls of the OE tyres. At Totton Tyre and Exhaust, we stock tyres of all sizes for your convenience. 

However, here, we are going to talk about a particular size specifically: 235/40 R18, where 235 (mm) is the nominal width, 40 is the aspect ratio, R stands for radial and 18 (inches) is the rim diameter. Tyres of this size have been in huge demand in our garage in Southampton, and there’s a good reason behind that. Most of the popular cars around these parts feature this size of tyres. For example:

Volkswagen Beetle and Passat

Skoda Superb

Pontiac Vive

Suzuki Verona

Honda Accord and Civic

Opel Vectra and Omega

Mercedes-Benz Classes A, B, C, CLA, E, SLC, SLK and AMG

Lexus ES

There are literally hundreds of other car models that use this tyre size. For them, our experts recommend Vitora Sportlife. These tyres Totton are unique in their built, construction material and functionality, all of which combine to give you the most comfortable ride. They are also quite acclaimed for their durability. 

The most unique feature of the Sportlife, though, is its asymmetrical tread pattern which keeps your car stable even in the most adverse road conditions. The load and speed rating of these tyres is 95W, which means that they are capable of running at 168mph and carrying 1521 pounds of load.

Vitora also has a host of other tyres in different sizes for different purposes. We store each one of them at our workshop. You may also opt to purchase these tyres online from our e-store. Just pick your preferred set, and we will deliver them at your doorstep in a jiffy.
