During those winter months, the roads become harsher and tyre wear and tear risk becomes greater. Winter tyres are designed for vehicle users to drive in temperatures below 7 degrees celsius.
In this way, these specially designed tyres facilitate faster braking and reduces skidding of a vehicle in wet and icy conditions on the road.
Winter tyres have a softer compound, allowing them to grip the road much easier than any of their counterparts, such as summer tyres and all-season tyres.
Come warmer temperatures, however, be wary of using winter tyres as adverse results occur. The key to choosing the right fit is by informing yourself. Winter tyres for colder months, summer tyres for warmer months.
There are many individual causes of tyre troubles. However, the three abuses which will cause most problems, and the greatest costs, are under-inflation, overloading and speeding. Over-inflation results in the central tread area being forced into contact with the road causing rapid centre and worn shoulders. Under-inflation causes tyres to wear on the outer edges of the tread, leaving the central tread area far less worn. For more professional advice, send us a message or give us a call today.
