Would you trust these poor quality tyres for your family?

Hey guys,

I was in a supermarket in Alicante, Spain when I stumbled upon the most dangerous sight. Sure the Spaniards are known for beautiful weather, crystal clear beaches, relaxed outlook, great sangria and fabulous paella but this really took the cake of relaxed.

€27.00 tyres and the kicker is they call them family car tyres. I wouldn’t trust my pet dog let alone me family to travel on these.

On closer inspection the tyres are extremely poor quality, the rubber feels like something you’d expect off the back of a pencil, this will cause them to wear quickly, if you wheels aren’t balanced then they will wear unevenly, try and stop in the wet and you’re likely to slide all the way along the street.

Now sure Spain has great weather, it doesn’t rain, well I hate to say but it does, it rains and it pours, Alicante is the garden belt of Spain, know for its good rainfall, very much the same climate as Queensland.

So why would you sell poor quality tyres like this…

The answer is profit. These tyres are made from the lowest quality, many times from the offcuts and leftovers from other tyres, they aren’t meant to keep you safe they are simply meant to maximise profits.

I cannot stress enough about using a professional team, a team that knows your vehicle, your usage and the environment the tyres will be used in.

That’s what the team at Darra Tyres is all about… Proper tyres for your vehicle not €27 euro ones that will be lucky to last 6 months and aren’t appropriate for the driving conditions in Queensland and Australia.
