Which tires to choose?
All car tires can be divided into three types: winter, summer and all-season. They differ in rubber composition and tread pattern. In the winter tire, the tread pattern is very clear and it often contains spikes. In addition, winter tires are characterized by high plasticity.
Longitudinal strips designed to divert water prevail in the tread pattern of the summer tires, while transverse strips are weakly expressed. At low temperatures in winter, the summer tire rubber hardens and does not provide good adhesion to the road surface.
All-season tires combine the parameters of both winter and summer tires.
Clearly, the tires with a maximum load corresponding to the type of your car should be bought. That is, as can be understood, it is impractical to install tires for trucks on a passenger car or vice versa. The speed index recommended by the manufacturer is also indicated on the label, which should also be taken into account when purchasing.
Properly selected tires will allow you to save fuel by at least 5%. Enjoy buying new tires, but do not forget that it is necessary to maintain correct pressure in them. Its reduction by only 10-15% can lead to more fuel consumption, reduce the car’s controllability, that is it will reduce all your attempts on the correct choice of rubber to zero.
