If you are trying to decide whether or not to fit summer tyres, it is worth considering the importance of having the most appropriate tyres to suit the weather conditions, because only with the right tyres can your vehicle find the optimal contact with the road. As well as this the economic efficiency of your car depends directly on your tyres, because with some models, the fuel consumption can be significantly reduced.
Summer tyres: from April to October
Whether on a sunny spray ride over the dry road or aquaplaning with the fully loaded family car on the road through the rain - your summer tyres must always meet the highest standards and of course comply with all safety standards.
Once the outside temperature is reaching about 7 ° C, you should wear summer tyres.
April and late October is generally the ideal time to change the tyres on your car and never drive on snow and ice with summer tyres.
Features of summer tyres
Using a special rubber compound in summer tyres means that they have the necessary "grip" even in extreme temperatures. For this reason, summer tyres are inelastic as well as harder compared to winter tyres and ensure your driving safety even in the warmer months of the year thanks to their steering stability.
Summer tyres, unlike winter tyres, have lower rolling resistance, resulting in less wear and tear, lower fuel consumption, and lower tyre noise. The summer tyre performs and provides a high driving comfort overall and increases the mileage of the vehicle.
Tread depth of summer tyres
Summer tyres should have a tread depth of 4 mm, because below this ‘wet grip’ decreases. A too low profile increases the risk of aquaplaning significantly and the cornering stability decreases noticeably. If the wear on your summer tyres is already well advanced and you are unsure whether you can use your current tyres for another season, contact our tyre experts at Auto Surefit Motoring Centre, Wolverhampton where we will be happy to advise you.
To increase the longevity of your tyres, you should regularly check the tyre pressure.
An optimal tyre pressure ensures an improvement in the rolling behaviour, which also has a positive effect on the fuel consumption.
