Choosing car tyres
Creating a checklist of what you specifically want for your car helps to draw an idea of what car tyres you probably need. When choosing the right tyres for your vehicle, you must consider quite a few things. Aside from summer, winter or all-season products, there are also different tyre tread patterns. This includes asymmetric tyres, symmetric tyres and even directional tyres. All of these have their own unique properties, greatly influencing your driving experience.
Summer tyres, for example, should be used between spring and autumn, when the temperature is above 7°C. When the temperature is lower, the effectiveness of these tyres is reduced, which is why it is better to fit winter tyres through the colder season. These have a unique rubber compound to cope with the cold, as well as tread patterns to ensure road safety and grip in wet conditions. Winter tyres have more grooves and sipes, to help combat snow and aquaplaning.
All season tyres, on the other hand, feature qualities from both winter and summer products. These tyres are usable throughout the year, regardless of the weather. These are best used by motorists who are calmer behind the wheel and who travel at least 3,700 miles a year. Summer products, however, would be more suitable for faster, more dynamic drivers who do less than this per year. If you feel you belong to neither of the two, you may need to determine your driving style - it will let you choose the best tyres to support how you drive.
Of course, regardless of which type of tyre you choose, all manufacturers strive to produce tyres with excellent road grip in both dry and wet conditions, as well as providing an effective braking distance, fuel economy and driving comfort.
