Tyre Installation

What is wheel balancing and why is it required?

Wheel balancing is important because wheels lose their balance over time. Factors concerning the weight distribution of your vehicle, road conditions and tread wear can cause an unevenness in the tyres, which can then lead to further uneven tread wear. As a result, the vehicle might shake or vibrate while in use.


When we balance the wheels, we typically apply a calibrated spin balancer, and will normally also test both the static (non-moving) and dynamic (moving) aspects of wheel balance. 

What is wheel alignment, do I really need it?

Wheel alignment involves adjustment of the angle of the vehicle’s wheels. This is normally done based on the manufacturer’s recommended specifications. A wheel alignment usually includes a tire tread check along with the three basic components for measuring wheel orientation, involving the toe, camber and caster.


Wheel alignments are generally recommended if the vehicle feels like it’s pulling to one side, if it has been involved in an accident. Since vehicle use will differ among drivers, there is no specific mileage or designated timeline for wheel alignments.

How to read the date of production (DOT) of a tyre?

Every tyre has a batch number stamped on the sidewall along the bead area.

The first two digits tell you the week number and the last two indicate the year the tyre was manufactured. For example if the age code is '3920'. This means the tyre was made in the 39th week of the year 2020.  

What is the date of production (DOT) for the tyres YallaTyre offers?

UAE regulations require passenger car tyres to be sold within 2 years of the date of their manufacture and changed within 5 years. On our website, we display the year of manufacturing of every tyre in stock. 

YallaTyre.com only captures the year and not the week as every tyre may have a different week, which keeps changing all the time as we receive fresh inventory.  

Please note that all tyres sold in the UAE must carry a smart RFID tag affixed to them.

What should be the acceptable date of production (DOT) for the tyres I buy?

As as long as you are able to consume the tyre within the 5 years from the date of production, you are okay to buy a tyre with any date of manufacture. 

UAE regulations require passenger car tyres to be sold within 2 years of the date of their manufacture and changed within 5 years.   

All tyres sold in the UAE must carry a smart RFID tag affixed to them.



How can I pay for tyres at YallaTyre.com?

You can make your payment by swiping your VISA/MasterCard or paying cash after the installation of tyres.

Glossary of Tyre related Terms


Wheel alignment consists of adjusting the angles of the wheels so that they are perpendicular to the ground and parallel to each other. The purpose of these alignments is to maximize the tyres life, fuel efficiency and ensure that the vehicle tracks straight and true when driving along a straight and level road.   Severe impacts (hitting potholes or curbs) and worn suspension parts are the leading causes of misalignment.


All Season Tyres

Tyres designed to provide good traction in a wide variety of road conditions, including wet, dry and mud and snow. This design also limits the tyre’s performance in extreme conditions, or when compared to tyres built for a particular category.


Aspect Ratio

A term that describes a tyre’s height-to-width proportion. If a tyre’s sidewall height were 65% of its width, its aspect ratio would be 65. In the tyre size expressed as 205/65-15, the number 65 is the aspect ratio.



The state in which a tyre and wheel assembly spins with all its weight distributed equally. Wheel Balancing allows the tyres and wheels to spin without causing any vibrations.  This is done by checking for any heavy spots on the wheel-tire combination and compensating for it by placing a measured lead weight on the opposite site of the wheel from where the heavy spot is.



This is a unit of measurement for air pressure within tyres.



A round hoop of steel wires, wrapped or reinforced by steel cords, placed at the very inside of the tyre's diameter.


Bias Ply Tyre

A tyre manufactured such that the plies are laid at alternate angles less than 90 degrees to the centerline of the tread. These criss-cross plies give the tyre its strength, but generate heat during operation and limit the tyre's wear and performance.



The tyre body beneath the tread and sidewalls; also called the casing.


Contact Patch

The portion of the tread that in touching the road during operation.



The strands of material forming the plies or layers of tyre. Cords may be made from fiberglass, rayon, nylon, polyester or steel.


DOT Markings

Each tyre has a required Department of Transportation number imprinted on at least one of its sidewalls. That number begins with the letters "DOT" and may contain up to 12 additional numbers and letters.  The first and last digits are the most important for the tyre owner. The first two letters/numbers identify the manufacturer of the tyres.  The first two digits represent the week of production and the last two digits represent the last two digits of the year of production. So, 5114 as the last four numbers indicates that the tyre was produced in the 51st week of the year 2014.



The full portion of the tyre that makes contact with the surface of the road.



The resistance of the tyre tread as it moves on the road; this is the force that causes the tyre to grip to the road.



The space between two adjacent tread ribs; also called tread grooves.



A skimming effect caused by tyres losing contact with a surface covered by water.  This results in loss of grip.


Load Index

An assigned number ranging from 0 to 279 that corresponds to the load carrying capacity of the tyre.


M+S, M/S or M & S

Indicates that a tyre can reach particular standards for performance in mud and snow conditions.


Max. Inflation Pressure

The maximum air pressure to which a cold tyre may be inflated; found stamped onto the tyre's sidewall.


OE and OEM

OE means "Original Equipment" and refers to the tyres included with a new vehicle at the time of purchase. The vehicle's manufacturer selects these tyres to provide the optimal performance based on the performance characteristics of the vehicle. "OEM" stands for "Original Equipment Manufacturer."


Overall Diameter

The diameter of an inflated tyre without any load.


Overall Width

The distance between a tyre's outside sidewalls, including lettering and designs.


P Metric

Uniform designation of tyre sizes in metric measurements originally introduced by American tyre manufacturers in 1977. Commonly called "P-metric series." A typical P-metric tyre size is P215/70R-15.



A small label typically located on the edge of the driver's door or inside the glove compartment of a vehicle. A placard contains information on the vehicle such as the manufacturer's recommended tyre inflation pressure.



A practice allowing drivers to customize the appearance and performance of their vehicle by mounting lower profile tyres on larger diameter wheels. One-inch greater wheel diameter is referred to as plus-one, two inches is plus-two... and so on. Using a lower profile tyre with a greater diameter rim allows the overall diameter to remain about the same.



A rubber-coated layer of fabric containing cords that run parallel to each other; extends from bead to bead and goes between the inner-liner and belts of tread.


Ply Rating

This indicates the load carrying capacity of the tyre in terms of its construction. A "C" indicates the tyre has a 6-ply load carrying capacity. The tyre is not actually built with 6 plies, but contains one or two plies of equivalent strength. A "D" is an 8-ply rating, and an "E" is a 10-ply rating. If there is no letter, the tyre has a standard 4-ply rating.



Pounds per Square Inch. This is the standard unit of measurement for air pressure within tyres.


Radial Ply

Tyre construction where the cords in the body run at 90 degrees to the centerline of the tread.


Rim Width

Distance between the two opposite inside edges of the rim flanges.


Rolling Resistance

The force required to keep a tyre moving at a constant speed. The lower the rolling resistance, the less energy needed to keep a tyre moving.



Moving tyres from side to side or front to rear on a vehicle in a prescribed pattern to achieve uniform wear on all tyres. Rotations should be performed regularly every 10,000 KMS



The part of a tyre where the sidewall and tread meet. Certain tyre design features shoulder blocks for better traction.



The part of the tyre between the tread and the bead.



An expression that defines a particular tyre in terms of its width, height, rim diameter, aspect ratio and construction type. 225/50-R17 expresses tyre size using the metric system.


Speed Rating

Speed rating represents the maximum speed your tyre is capable of maintaining.  It is always represented by a letter. Take a 195/65R15 87S tyre- The Speed rating here is represents by the Letter S which translates to the tyre’s ability to maintain speeds of up to 180 km/h.


Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)

TPMS is an automated system that monitors the air pressure in a vehicle's tyres. When air pressure in one or more tyres drops 25 percent or more below the correct pressure, a warning alerts the driver.



The friction between a tyre and the road surface; the amount of grip provided.



The part of the tyre that comes into contact with the road. The tread type is distinguished by the design of its ribs and grooves


Tread Depth

The distance measured in the major tread groove nearest the centerline of the tyre from the base of the groove to the top of the tread.


Treadwear Indicator

Narrow bands, sometimes called "wear bars", that appear across the tread when 2/32" of tread remains.


Tread Width

The width of a tyre's tread.


UTQG (Uniform Tyre Quality Grading)

A tyre information system that provides consumers with ratings for a tyre's traction (AA to C) and temperature (A to C)


A device mounted in the wheel that lets air in or out of the tyre. Valves include caps to keep out dirt and moisture and a valve to prevent air from escaping.

How to read your tyre size ?

You need to look for numbers and letters in a format like 195/55R16 95V, 225/50R17, 265/60R18 etc


What is Speed rating? Is it important?

Speed rating represents the maximum speed your tyre is capable of maintaining.  It is always represented by a letter. Take a 195/65R15 87S tyre- The Speed rating here is represents by the Letter S which translates to the tyre’s ability to maintain speeds of up to 180 km/h.


It is recommended never to downgrade the speed rating of your tyres. This may result in poor handling and unpredictable steering.  However, if you want better cornering response, there is no problem installing a higher speed rated tyre on your vehicle.


Never mix and match tyres with different speed ratings on your vehicle. This will cause serious problems with the handling of your vehicle.

Why is the Load Index of a tyre important?

Load index represents the tyre’s load carrying limit.  Take a 195/65R15 87S tyre- The load index 87 identifies the tyres ability to carry approximately 545 Kilograms.  The higher the tyre's load index number, the greater its load carrying capacity.


It is not recommended that a tyre with a lower load index than the Original Equipment tyre be installed in any vehicle.  You must always replace you tyre with a tyre of equal or higher Load Index rating.



What does UTQG mean?

Uniform Tire Quality Grading System (UTQG) rates tyres on their treadwear, traction performance, and temperature resistance.  All tyres sold in the UAE must carry a smart RFID tag affixed to them which also displays these characteristics.  These are also found on the sidewall of most passenger tyres, with the exception of winter and light truck tyres.

What does Treadwear grade represent?

Treadwear grade indicates how long your tyres tread will last in relation to other tyres. For instance, a tire with a grade of 300 will last twice as long as a tire with a grade of 150.   However, actual tire performance can differ greatly for many reasons, including driving style, climate, inflation pressure and weight vehicle is carrying

What does the Traction grade mean?

The traction grade rates the ability of your tyre to stop on wet pavement.  Traction performance is given as AA, A, B or C, which you will find on the sidewall of your tire.  Tires with an AA grade stop faster on wet pavement than those with a B or C grade.  So AA is the highest rated while C is the lowest rates.  The traction tests do not test tyres for cornering, acceleration, driving at high speed or driving on dry roads and cover straight line braking only.

What do temperature grades mean?

Temperature grades are an indication of a tyre's resistance to heat. Sustained high temperature (for example, driving long distances in the hot Arabian weather), can cause a tyre to deteriorate, leading to an increased chance of a blowout or tread separation.


From highest to lowest, a tyre's resistance to heat is graded as “A”, “B”, or “C”. As per Gulf Standards Organization and EMSA, The temperature grade of a vehicles tyre sold in the Gulf region must be “A” or “B”.

Fuel Efficiency and Rolling resistance

The energy lost when a tyre is moving is described as 'rolling resistance'.  This has a direct impact on fuel consumption of a vehicle as well as the environment.  The lower the rolling resistance, the tyre less energy is lost, reducing both fuel consumption and emissions.


To help you make an informed decision, PitstopArabia.com makes the rolling resistance of every tyre, where possible, available to you.  Rolling resistance is expressed in grades, ranging from A to G. A is the highest performing tyre in its category; G is least performing.


To put these scores in perspective:  fitting the worst scoring tyres in this category, you could end up using 6 litres more fuel for every 1,000 kms travelled, than if you fitted 'A' rated tyres.  There’s approximately at + 7.5% difference in rolling resistance between Grade A and G.


'A' rated tyres could actually save you enough in petrol cost to buy a new set of tyres and more!


These grades are neither applicable nor available for professional off-road tyres, temporary-use spare tyres, studded tyres, tyres used only for racing, tyres whose speed rating is less than 80 km/h and tyres whose nominal diameter is smaller than 254 mm or bigger than 635 mm.

Exterior noise of a tyre

A tyre's exterior noise grading is expressed in decibels (dB).   To help you make an informed decision, YallaTyre.com makes the exterior noise rating of every tyre, where possible, available to you. 


Choosing a tyre with a good noise rating will minimize the impact of your driving on the surrounding environment.  Increase of noise of just a few decibels makes a significant impact.  The quietest tyres have a decibel rating of 68 or below.   The loudest tyres would have noise levels of 72dB and above.


These grades are neither applicable nor available for professional off-road tyres, temporary-use spare tyres, studded tyres, tyres used only for racing, tyres whose speed rating is less than 80 km/h and tyres whose nominal diameter is smaller than 254 mm or bigger than 635 mm.

Braking performance and wet grip

The wet grip provides you with information on a key safety aspect of a tyre: its grip on wet roads. Tyres with excellent grip in the wet have shorter braking distances on wet roads.


To help you make an informed decision, Yallatyre.com makes the wet grip rating of every tyre, where possible, available to you.


A tyre's wet grip capacity is expressed in grades from A to G, with A the highest wet grip performance. These are measured by braking in a car travelling at only 80 km/h. The difference in braking distances between each grade is roughly 3m - the average length of a car. This makes the difference between A and G, 18meters, which is 6 car lengths! This distance could be the difference between being in a road accident or not.


These grades are neither applicable nor available for professional off-road tyres, temporary-use spare tyres, studded tyres, tyres used only for racing, tyres whose speed rating is less than 80 km/h and tyres whose nominal diameter is smaller than 254 mm or bigger than 635 mm.

How to monitor tyre pressure as the outside temperature changes?

Gas expands when heated and contracts when cooled.  In Arabia, the daily temperatures rise and fall between day and night, as well as seasonally.  As the days get longer and hotter during summers, it's especially important to check your tire pressure.


The tyre pressure recommended in your vehicles owner manual is based on cold inflation pressure i.e. the tyre pressure should be checked before the tyre has been driven a significant distance.


For every 5 degrees Celsius increase in temperature the inflation pressure inside the tyre would approximately increase by 1psi.  The same phenomenon is there when the outside temperature drops as well.  In most parts of Arabia, the morning and day time temperatures can vary between 15-20 degrees Celsius, which translates to a variance of about 3-4 psi during the course of one day.


You must always check your tire inflation pressure when your tires are cold, and inflate them to the manufacturer recommended pressure.

What happens when my tyres are under inflated?

Tyres can overheat which increases the chance of them bursting – this will also increase the war and tear so you will have to replace them much sooner.


Also, tyres that are under inflated will also affect the handling of the car by impacting the steering and, since they increase the rolling resistance, you should expect to pay much more in fuel costs.

What happens if my tyres are over inflated?

While over inflated tyre will not only give you a rough and an uncomfortable ride, tit will also reduce the surface area of tyre in contact with road which results in reduced grip. 


In the Arabian hot weather, the tyre pressure can increase by 3-5 psi depending upon the outside weather, which can cause the tyre to cross the max inflation limit and explode under high speed. 


Too much air will also speed up tyre wear and make your tyres more prone to damage from impact.

Mixing tyres and changing only front or only rear tyres

Mixing tires should not be done unless it is explicitly approved by the vehicle or tyre manufacturer. It is not desirable to mix tyres of different size, tread, etc or mix all season/summer with winter tires as this is likely to compromise balance, stability and control. To avoid ever having to mix tyres, it is advised that tyres are regularly rotated so that the tread wears out evenly.


While the best thing to do is to change all four tyres, it is not always a feasible option, in which case changing only a pair may seem more desirable. In this case, it is best to choose the exact same tyre.


Alternatively tyres from the same performance category can be chosen, but it is advised to stay as close as possible to the characteristics of the ones currently on the vehicle (i.e. in terms of speed rating, traction, handling). Although not as well recommended as the option of replacing the tyres with the exact same ones, it may become necessary when the same ones are not available.


Choosing different tyres altogether is not recommended, unless an emergency. Drivers should be cautioned that doing so will compromise the balance, stability and handling of the vehicle and can create unsafe driving conditions, particularly in unfavorable weather conditions and/or when being pushed hard.


For those with 4x4/All Wheel Drive vehicles, it should be noted that the mechanical setup of these vehicles allows for momentary differences in wheel speeds. Using a different tyre on one side of an axle or one with more tread wear will cause excessive heat, and eventually, unwarranted failure. The smallest difference in diameters will place strain on the driveline.

What is the acceptable Temperature Grade for use of tyre in the GCC?

Temperature grades are an indication of a tyre's resistance to heat. Sustained high temperature (for example, driving long distances in the hot middle eastern weather), can cause a tyre to deteriorate , leading to an increased chance of a blowout or tread separation.


From highest to lowest, a tyre's resistance to heat is graded as “A”, “B”, or “C”.


As per Gulf Standards Organization and EMSA, The temperature grade of a vehicles tyre sold in the Gulf region must be “A” or “B”.

Is Tyre inflation pressure a big deal?

Tyre pressure is not just a big deal it’s a massive deal!


All standards and specifications your tyres are certified for are only applicable if there is the right amount of inflation pressure in your tyres.  It affects fuel efficiency, life of the tyre, comfort and most importantly; safety of the occupants of the vehicle.   


Off all the safety features on your vehicle, tyres are by far the most important safety equipment!


How often do I check tyre pressure?

You must check the pressure of your tyres at least once a month and every time you are off to a long journey. 


Just visual inspection of the tyre is not sufficient to determine if the tyre has proper inflation or not.  Always check the pressure of all four (or more) tyres. Once in a while you must also check the pressure in the spare wheel.   Always use dependable equipment at a credible petrol pump or a proper tyre fitting shop. 


It would not take you more than 5 minutes of your time!

What is my vehicle’s recommended tyre pressure?

The best place to look for this information is your vehicle’s owner manual.  


As per GCC regulations, on new vehicles, the information must be located on the “B-pillar,” by the driver's side doorjamb.  For vehicles that do not have a B-pillar, mostly sports cars and coupes, the information should be attached to the rear edge of the driver side door, unless it’s too narrow, in which case it is usually placed on the inward-facing surface next to the driver's seat.  On some vehicles, you can also find the same information on the driver’s doorjamb, Fuel filler door lid or the glove box as well.

Original Equipment (OE) tyres vs. replacement tyres

What are Original Equipment(OE) Tyres? Original Equipment Tyres or stock tyres are those that come fitted from the factory with the automobile. A tyre manufacturer provides these tyres to the automobile maker. Companies design these tyres keeping in mind the design and performance of the vehicle, and ensure that the tyre is compatible with it. What are Replacement Tyres? Replacement tyres are those that you purchase for replacing the OE tyres.

Should you stick with OE tyres?  


The answer to this question is both YES and NO. It all depends on what you want from your tyres.




It is not necessary that the OE tyres are the best tyres for your vehicle. They are designed keeping in mind an optimal performance and driving experience. The primary purpose of OE tyres is to match the fundamental characteristics of the vehicle for which they are designed. Always buy tyres that provide the enhancement you are looking for. If you want the same performance as earlier, you should stick with OE tyres. Routinely changing tyres is a good practice to maintain stability and handling while driving. You can also opt for high-end tyres that are a little expensive but provide a longer tread life than cheap tyres. Whichever tyre you select, always match their specifications with your expected performance, and you will always be satisfied while driving.

How do I know I need new Tyres?

There is no way to tell exactly how long a tyre will last you. The lifespan and mileage of a tyre can be determined by of a combination of factors: its Quality of Installation, Design, Driver’s habits, the climate, the road conditions and the care that is provided to the tyres. Following are some things to consider,


Keep an eye on the Thread and wear


If your tyres are visibly worn out, have cracks or show limited tread depth. It is time to change them for sure


Inspect regularly after 3 years


After 3 years in use, your tyres should be thoroughly inspected at least once every couple of months by a professional. Road and Transport Authority will provide this service upon the annual registration renewal of your car and will let you know whether your tyres are okay or not.


Five years is a maximum


UAE’s law requires you to change Tyres 5 years after their date of manufacture. Even if they appear to be in usable condition and have not worn down to the tread wear indicator. This applies to spare tyres as well.


Proper care expands a tire’s lifespan


You can increase your tire's longevity by maintaining the correct air pressure, performing regular tyre rotations and vehicle maintenance.

“Original Equipment” tyres explained

Original Equipment (OE) tyres are the tyres that your vehicle manufacturer chose to install in your vehicle when it came new from the factory.


In some cases, automakers partner with tyre manufacturers to develop tyres with particular characteristics, in order to complement the performance features of the vehicle. For example for a luxury car one may choose a tyre with a plush, quiet ride; for a hybrid, a fuel efficient tyre with low rolling resistance; and for a sports car, a tyre that delivers straight-line acceleration or fast cornering.


There usually are multiple OE tires for a particular vehicle.  A 2015 Toyota Land Cruiser can be equipped with Michelin Latitude Tour HP, Bridgestone Dueler H/T D684 II or Dunlop Grandtrek AT23 to name a few.  And then there could be different variants within, depending upon whether your Land Cruiser is a EXR, GX, GXR, VX or a VXR.

I need new tyres. Do I have to buy the same OE tyres again?

No -- but if you’ve been happy with their performance, you may want to buy the same ones again.  Certainly OE tyres are not the only choice out there.  


While, OE tyres are often purpose-built to make the most of an aspect of your vehicle’s performance there are tyres available in the market with near identical specifications and typically with a lower price as well.   You will find at times that the OE tyres being sold in the ME are at times anywhere between 10-30% more expensive than other tyres of comparable brands and identical specifications. 


Taking the Land Cruiser example again, a VXR might come fitted with an OE tyre designed for lower noise level and higher comfort while a GXR might be fitted with tyres that perform better off road but marginally noisier.  It’s really up to you!

Why would I buy replacement tyres?

If you did not enjoy the tyres that came installed in your new car and you want to change the way your car behaves, you should consider other tyres providing the trait most important to you. 


For example if you’d like to increase fuel economy, choose a tyre with lowered rolling resistance: An A rated tyre would save you approximately 6 litres of petrol 1000km of driving than a G rated tyre.   Wet grip, an A rated tyre will stop 18m before a G rated tyre on a wet road with a car driving at 80km/h. A very significant distance considering your car could be carrying – you and your family.  On noise levels, a tyre with one bar rating makes 4 times less external noise (6DB) than a tyre with a three bar rating.

How do I choose the right set of tyres?

Shop for tyres by entering either your vehicle information or the tyre size.


You should then look for a set of tyres that emphasizes the traits you want your vehicle to demostrate (quiet ride, sporty handling, offroad handling etc.).


To decide, you can select upto 6 different types of tyres, and click on compare to do a side by side comparison.  


To see more information about a tyre, just click on the tyre’s name in your search results. And if you’d like help finding the perfect set of replacement or OE tires, our tire experts are always there and ready to help you.
