Not only in winter, it is important to adapt the tyres of your vehicle to the weather, but also in summer: When the outside temperatures rise in spring, the driving conditions on the roads change. Only with suitable summer tyres, you can optimally face the weather changes. With timely fitting, you gain significant safety and save on fuel consumption.
In the warm season, summer tyres are characterised by higher stability when cornering and significantly shorter braking distances: Independent tests compared the braking distance of cars, which were equipped with winter tyres to the ones with summer tyres at an outside temperature of 35 degrees Celsius. At a speed of 60 mph, the braking distance with summer tyres was 16 meters shorter than with winter tyres!
The strengths of summer tyres
Starting at a constant road surface temperature of +7 degrees, the advantages of summer tyres are apparent. If you change from winter tyres to summer tyres according to this temperature specification or according to the rule of thumb "from O (October) to E" until the weekend after Easter, you benefit from long-lasting, safe and comfortable summer tyres.
Advantages of summer tyres over winter tyres
- The special, harder rubber compound reduces heat and heat-wear and rolling resistance
- The lower rolling resistance reduces fuel consumption and increases driving comfort
- The distinctive tread design features larger tread blocks and wide longitudinal grooves. They ensure better adhesion and significantly reduce the risk of aquaplaning in the rain.
