Whether you’re deciding which tyres should come with your brand-new car or are trying to find out what to replace your current ones with, figuring out what tyres are best for you can be a chore. That’s why we’ve put together a simple and easy guide to help you make the best choice for your vehicle.
Does what it says on the tin. These tyres are built with snow and ice in mind. Designed with many grooves and snipes, this type is here to grip the road and maximise safety in colder climates.
All Season Tyres
Otherwise known as summer tyres, these perform best when fitting your car with temperate climates in mind. If you’re living in the UK, then this is likely be your default. Performing at their best at around 7°c, this type performs well on wet and dry roads, only struggling when temperatures and weather conditions that veer into the more extreme.
While this is an option available to you, we don’t recommend it. Technically legal – a phrase that raises red flags for any conscientious consumer – these are considered the cheap alternative. Worn down, these are rarely suitable for whichever purpose they were originally sold for. Worse, an estimated 98% of used tyres sold in the UK are sold illegally, as they are no longer fit for the road. Do yourself a favour and skip this option entirely.
Durable and Emergency proof, this type is made specifically to deal with hazards on the road. Should the worst happen, and you get a puncture, then you can rest assured that your run flat tyres will keep your car road-worthy until you can take it to a garage. They have unique membranes that isolate the source of the penetrating object, with specially durable sidewalls that maintain their shape and utility for up to 50 miles after a puncture. Consider this option when driving on low-quality, hazardous roads, especially when you’re particularly far from repair services.
Energy Saving Tyres
While efficiency has always been a consideration, the rising cost of fuel has resulted in a skyrocketing demand for energy saving vehicles. Specially built to give you more miles per the gallon, energy saving tyres are designed to decrease rolling resistance while you’re driving, reducing the amount of fuel necessary for maintaining speed. They optimise your car’s energy efficiency, making for a less expensive drive and, subsequently, lower associated CO2 emissions.
