We often hear from Consumers saying how they always used to buy Secondhand tyres but have found them almost impossible to buy over the last few years. People are quite surprised about this as they reasonably expected the supply of Secondhand tyres to be inexhaustible.
But the truth is there have been almost no shipments of used tyres from Japan since the huge earthquake and tsunami last year. There are many theories and explanations floating around for the end of these shipments but the simple fact is that the supply has dried up.
Probably the end of these shipments is a good thing as the price of secondhand tyres had been increasing as their quality declined just as the quality of new tyres from China increased as their price declined. Good examples of this are the high quality Green Max Eco Tyres, Crosswind Silica compound directional new tyres and Winda Tyres sold by www.tyresales.co.nz. These high quality performance new tyres are sold at prices close to those of Secondhand tyres but are brand new and come with a lifetime guarantee.
This really has been a positive development for the consumer as it is improving the quality of tyres on cars and helping create safer driving conditions. Sure there are still some Secondhand tyres in the market place, but theey tend to be off accident damaged New Zealand tyres and have many quality and safety defects and should be avoided by any one concerned about their safety.
The best thing about new tyres like the Green Max, Winda and Crosswind is that their cost per kilometer tends to be less than the price per kilometer of second hand tyres.
