Tyres for 4x4 cars
Summer tyres for 4x4 vehicles are divided into road, semi off-road tyres, semi road tyres and off-road tyres. Road tyres (where 80% is road driving and 20% is off-road driving) are marked with the H/T and S/T symbols. For these tyres treads with an asymmetrical pattern are used. The second type of summer tyres for 4x4 vehicles are tyres intended for both road and off-road routes (50% on the road and 50% off-road). In this situation, the following abbreviations are placed on the tyre: ATR, AT2, A/T or All Terrain. The last type of summer tyres for 4x4 vehicles is intended for off-road areas (80% off-road and 20% on the road). The abbreviations MTR or M/T are used in the names of such models. No such division applies to winter tyres for 4x4 vehicles. All such tyres are road tyres. This classification of tyres for 4x4 vehicles offers a broad choice to drivers, depending on the type of roads they use. They have good properties in slightly off-road areas (dirt roads) and in typical off-road areas. Solutions used for such tyres ensure safety, both on public roads and in off-road conditions. It is a perfect solution for drivers who need optimal performance on various types of surfaces, also in more difficult off-road conditions. Such tyres, like ordinary tyres for passenger cars, are very often equipped with a protective edge which prevents mechanical and abrasive damage. An internal steel belt is also quite often used for this purpose, which reinforces the structure and, as a result, the tread is less prone to deformities. Sidewalls are also reinforced increasing the load index, which is useful for SUVs which have very different weight than ordinary passenger cars. In such tyres, special emphasis is placed on high driving comfort, which is very useful for city driving, as well as in off-road conditions. Such tyres do not make noise and eliminate vibrations characteristics of off-road routes. Some manufacturers of tyres for 4x4 vehicles use additional sipes slits and a durable rubber compound, owing to which even summer tyres can keep appropriate driving parameters even in winter conditions. However, a lot of tyres from various segments as well as tyres for 4x4 cars should guarantee good performance on wet surfaces. It needs to be mentioned that 4x4 tyres cannot be installed in passenger cars as they have a completely different structure and tread characteristics. Tyres of this type will be much louder and stiffer when installed in a passenger car.
4x4 car tyres are available in summer, winter and all-season versions. 4x4 car tyres perform the best from late spring to early autumn on dry and wet road surfaces. 4x4 car for the winter season ensure safety in all road conditions to be encountered in winter. All-season 4x4 car are a compromise combination of the performance of summer and winter tyres. Why don’t you to explore our offer for a given season.
We distinguish passenger car, delivery vehicle and 4x4 car tyres. Passenger car tyres are intended for typical passenger cars. 4x4 tyres are products which have been designed for cars with a four-wheel drive (off-road vehicles and sport utility vehicles, i.e. SUVs). Delivery vehicle tyres, on the other hand, are specialized products intended for continuous operation under heavy loads in cars intended for carrying goods and a larger number of people (vans). We present an offer for passenger car/4x4 car/delivery vehicle tyres.
4x4 car tyres are manufactured by a majority of a few hundred tyre manufacturers. Models of 4x4 car tyres are manufactured by both large companies (e.g. Michelin, Continental, Goodyear, Bridgestone and Pirelli) and by smaller independent manufacturers. We distinguish 4x4 car tyres of the economy, medium and premium classes. We present an offer for 4x4 car tyres by the most popular manufacturers.
The size of 4x4 car tyres can be read from a sequence of digits on the side of the tyre, e.g. 205/55 R16. It is necessary to know the size while buying tyres. The first number means the tyre width measured in millimetres between its sides. The second number in the size of a 4x4 car tyres is the profile height, i.e. the percentage value as compared to the tyre width, e.g. 55 is 55% out of 205, i.e. 112.75 mm. The last number is the rim width in inches, while the “R” symbol informs about the type of the 4x4 car tyres (R - radial, D – bias).
