Choosing a tyre can be difficult. They look similar and until you get them on the car, you don't know how they are going to perform out on the road. Watch this wet braking test to see the difference between a set of premium tyres and a set of cheaper budget tyres that look similar but perform very differently on the road.
The budget tyre took an average of 14 metres or 3 and 1/2 car lengths extra to stop. When the premium tyre had come to a stop, the car on budget tyres was still travelling at 31mph.
