Types of Tyre

Not all tyres are the same; manufacturers design each tyre model to provide different performance benefits under specific conditions.

Usually this means optimising the tread pattern and rubber compound for the environment that the tyre will be used. Thatís why winter tyres provide great grip on snow covered roads and summer tyres excel on dry surfaces but when placed in the opposite environment, neither tyre fairs quite so well. Thatís why itís important to select the right tyre for the purpose and weather conditions it is likely to encounter.
