AUTOAPP ACUMEN: Taking care of the tyre-ing stuff

Beginning with the basics, AutoApp has got you covered.


It’s been more than a century since the humble rubber tyre appeared on automobiles. Before that, metal or wooden wheels clattered along unpaved roads, much to the chagrin of drivers and pedestrians.

Since their debut, rubber tyres are a feature that we take more and more for granted. In the modern day, there’s a continuous quest in improving those bouncy black rings we have around our wheels, in the aspects of grip, comfort, or fuel efficiency.

Tyres are quite a lot more important than you’d think, too. Being the only contact between your car and the road, they play an essential role in keeping you safe.

Fun fact – on an average tyre, the contact patch is smaller than a sheet of A5-sized paper. This means that all the contact your car has with the road fits within an A3-sized sheet of paper!

As with all wear & tear items though, tyres will need to be replaced throughout the life of the vehicle. For many consumers, that’s not a small investment, and knowing the ins and outs of buying tyres can be overwhelming.

At AutoApp, however, we’re making tyre changes a breeze by bringing today’s door-to-door convenience you’re so used to. Gone are the days of waiting around a stuffy shop while new tyres are fitted – get work done, go to the gym, or indulge in some retail therapy instead!
