Considering new tyres on credit?

When the time comes to purchase a new set of car tyres, it can be tempting to go for the cheapest option available. However, is it worth it? What compromises might you be making?

Certainly, not all ‘cheap’ tyres are bad. Ultimately, however, when it comes to purchasing new tyres it stands to reason that ‘you get what you pay for’.

What is the difference between cheap tyres and expensive tyres?

Perhaps one of the main differences between cheap tyres and expensive tyres is the quality of the rubber compound that’s used. Cheaper tyres typically use a harder rubber compound, which is cheaper to manufacture. This can offer greater durability and perhaps a slight improvement in fuel efficiency due to the low rolling resistance. However, it also means that cornering ability, grip and wet weather capability are reduced.
A set of quality car tyres may cost more initially but they are likely to save you money in the long run. Quality tyres will offer better performance, longevity, grip in all conditions and safety for you and your passengers.

How can Openpay assist you?

At BestDrive, we understand the importance of fitting your car with the best tyres to suit your vehicle and your driving needs. This is why we are pleased to accept Openpay.
This means you can manage the payment of your new tyres over 2, 3, 6 or 9 months - completely interest free. This can enable you to buy the tyres you really need, rather than the tyres you can afford at the time of purchase.

How does Openpay work?

If you are unfamiliar with Openpay, here is a basic rundown of how it works.
Firstly, you need to sign up to the service, which is a simple process. You can download the Openpay app from the App Store or Google Play Store. You then register your basic information via the app and link your Openpay account to your credit or debit card.
The approval process typically takes just a few minutes. Openpay will respond instantly to your application and once it is approved, you can use Openpay right away.
You can create your Openpay account in advance or sign up in-store at the time of making your purchase.
To purchase your new tyres with your Openpay account, you need to choose Openpay as the payment option and select a repayment option using the app. As already stated, this can be done over a period of 2, 3, 6 or 9 months - completely interest free.
Repayments are automatically deducted from your nominated credit or debit account. This occurs on a fortnightly basis, as agreed upon and scheduled by you. You also have the option of making an early payment through the Openpay app.
