How do you now what tyres are best for your vehicle?
Tyre patters can be categorised into a few different types.
These are consistent across the tyre’s face (both halves of tread face are the same) and are the ‘all rounder’ tread pattern. They are generally the quietest and most comfortable but not the most performance orientated.
Cold Weather Tyres:
Designed to give superior grip and control in wet and dry conditions once the temperature drops below 7∞C. Could be any tread pattern design but the tread blocks contain many small grooves called sipes, which help disperse water and provide additional grip on snow and ice. A different rubber compound is also used allowing the tyre to remain flexible at low temperatures. Cold weather tyres provide significantly shorter stopping distances and a safer drive.
The tread patterns differs on the inner side to the outer. Larger tread blocks on the outer portion offer handling and cornering advantages - especially on dry roads. The smaller inner blocks cope well with wet conditions by dispersing water.
These provide enhanced performance such as wet grip, directional stability, straight line acceleration and shorter stopping distance. They must be dedicated to a specific side of the vehicle with the direction of rotation clearly marked on the sidewall - this direction must be strictly observed.
