Tyres: Tips & Recommendations

What are Summer Tyres and do I need them?

Hot road surfaces, excessive traffic and long driving distances can all put a lot of strain on your tyres. For this reason, summer tyres have special tread formations and other design features to help them deal with the warmer months.

Their soft rubber compound helps provide better traction and braking in both wet and dry conditions, and generally offer a smoother drive. Although they are designed specifically for warmer conditions, the UK climate means that they can be used all year round, although in extreme conditions, winter tyres are recommended.
