How do I compare truck and trailer tyres on Tyrecomp?
Are cheap truck tyres any good?
Budget truck tyres often have reduced performance. They are less able to withstand heavy loads and are not as resistant to wear and tear as their peers. That is why you should not always choose the cheapest truck tyres that appear at the top of our price list. Instead, look for the best value for money. However, your budget remains important, and that is why we are committed to help you find the price that suits your wallet!
How to choose the right tyres for my lorry?
Pick your truck tyres according to the axle
Each axle has its own type of tyre! There are three main types of axles: the steer axle, the drive axle and the trailer axle. The tyres fitted on these axles are affected differently by load and rolling resistance stresses, depending on their position on the vehicle. Consequently, the tread patterns of lorry tyres vary: the ones on the drive axle usually having a higher tread pattern than the other tyres.
Steer axle tyres
The steer axle is located at the first position at the front of the truck. It enables the wheels to steer themselves in the direction the lorry is going. For this type of axle, you need to fit “S” (Steer) tyres, also called “F” (Front). With “S” truck tyres, you will be able to steer your vehicle over the miles with a proper load capacity.
Drive axle tyres
Right behind the steer axle is the drive axle, located at the second position of the vehicle. The drive axle tyres have a “D” (Drive) tread pattern. Drive tyres will be able to support the weight of your trailer without any problems.
Trailer axle tyres
The trailer axle is located at the back of the trailer, hence the name. The tyres fitted on this type of axle are then driven by the movement of the truck and support the weight of the trailer in addition to the other wheels. Make sure you fit “T” tyres (Trailer) on this axle. Their greater load and speed ratings enable the lorry to support heavy loads and drive a good mileage, significant criteria when you tow a trailer during hours or even days.
Please note that you can also fit “A” or “Z” (All-position) tyres on all three types of axle. They are made to fit any position on the truck but may have lower performance than the S, D and T tyres. In any case, there is one golden rule: make sure that you fit tyres with the same tread pattern on each axle!
Choose your lorry tyres considering the driving conditions
If the type of axle is paramount when choosing commercial lorry tyres, so is the use you will make of your tyres. Whether you drive freight and construction trucks or buses, each type of vehicle needs tyres suited to the driving conditions. From long haul tyres, to on/off-road tyres or urban tyres, there is a tyre for every lorry driver!
Lorry long haul tyres
Let us drive on motorways across the UK with the long-haul tyres! Mainly made for 18-wheelers and tractor-trailers that often carry freight and cargo loads over many miles, this type of tyre is also designed to withstand wear and face rolling resistance. When you choose long-haul tyres pay attention to their fuel efficiency to save money and respect the environment. From London to Leeds, from Cardiff to Birmingham and from Manchester to Edinburgh, these tyres will take you anywhere!
Lorry regional tyres
When you have to drive shorter distances, truck regional tyres are the perfect match! They can cope with regular accelerations and stops while being resistant over the time and providing great handling. So, if you have a semi-trailer, a tanker truck or similar, regional tyres will go wherever you go.
Urban tyres for trucks
Urban tyres are ideal for heavy-duty vehicle travel in the city. Whether you drive a bus or a garbage truck, they can deal with the many stops you will make to pick up passengers or collect waste. Benefiting from reinforced flanks, urban tyres are also designed to face curbing. With the urban tyres, you and your passengers will no longer have to worry about your safety!
On/off-road and construction tyres
As the name suggests, these tyres are very versatile! Whether you want to drive on the road or on steeper soils such as dirt and gravel, these tyres will not let you down. The dump truck tyres are especially subject to these off-road driving constraints and therefore have excellent traction and a tough casing to face cuts and tears.
Truck winter tyres
You have to travel on snow-capped roads? Do not forget to fit winter tyres on your lorry! Marked with “M+S” or with the “3PMSF” symbol, they are designed for low temperatures and snowy roads. Even though they are not mandatory in the UK, by fitting them you will get a better vehicle manoeuvrability, a great braking capacity and an increased driving comfort during winter.

Where can I get my commercial truck tyres fitted near me?
After you have chosen your truck tyres on Tyrecomp, you will have to get them fitted. You will find lists of partner fitting centres directly on the tyre dealers’ websites. However, be aware that most of the garages are equipped to fitting tyres on regular cars but not necessarily on trucks. In addition, fitting rates vary from one garage to another and are not the same depending on whether you want to equip a construction truck or a heavy-duty lorry. You will therefore need to contact the garage beforehand in order to check whether they can fit your tyres and give you a quote.
