eBay have two main intents with the tyre category Item Specifics change – one is for parts fitments to help buyers find the correct tyres for their vehicle to increase conversion and second is to reduce returns.
From the 31st of July 2018, sellers will need to provide the following item specifics on new, revised and relisted tyre listings:
- Unit Quantity
- Tyre Width
- Aspect Ratio
- Rim Diameter
- Speed Rating
- Tyre fuel efficiency (A-G)
