Company Opel was founded by Adam Opel in 1862. The production of cars began in 1899. Currently Opel belongs to General Motors and delivers cars not only in Europe but also in countries like China, Australia or Singapore. In United Kingdom Opel is better known as Vauxhall. Vauxhall is only another brand name, it has the same car models in his product range as Opel. Customers appreciate the reliability of Opel models but only with suitable tyres you can get driving pleasure and optimum dynamics.
Opel is one of the leading car manufacturers. Therefore, almost all tyres manufacturers offer tyres suitable for Opel . For standard equipment, Opel collaborates particularly with tyres maker Continental. For example, the Opel Astra comes standard with Premium Contact tyres from Continental. Opel Corsa is equipped with Bridgestone S01 of size 185/55 R15. For added safety and convenience, you should opt for quality tyres from famous manufacturers. Different tests always show that cheap products is a major safety risk. We offer for each Vauxhall model the right tire that you can move safely on any road and in any meteorological condition.
When looking suitable tyres for your Opel you should pay special attention to the markings on the tire. It is a code of numbers and letters, code which cannot be that easy to decipher for those less experienced. The first digit represents the tire section width in millimeters rendered, then follows the ratio between the width and height of the section rendered in percentage. The letter that follows is the tire construction mode, the letter "R" signifying a tire built in "radial". Finally follows the rim diameter in inches, weight index and speed rating. It is important to change the tyres for your Opel when needed. Every millimeter lack of tire tread depth increases braking distance with many meters.
