Jinyu 215/55 R16 Tyres
Recently, we have noticed a large volume of our customers choosing alternative tyre manufacturers for their vehicles. This trend is especially apparent when it comes to Jinyu tyres. This Chinese brand had made a name for itself with high-quality products at affordable prices. Our customers are always looking for Jinyu’s products, and you will see a lot of their goods on our shelves at Terry Elsey Tyres.
Before you go through their products, you should know whether it will be compatible with your car. One way to do it will be to read the tyre information from its sidewall and match it with the recommended details of your car. You will find the necessary information on the vehicle’s owner’s manual, or you can bring it to us at Terry Elsey Tyres, and we will help find the perfect one for your car.
If you prefer to do it yourself, you have to decipher the codes that are embossed on a tyre’s sidewall. For example, say you are looking at a Jinyu 215/55 R16 tyre; the numbers and letters carry all the necessary information about that product.
