A lot of people don’t know that they can improve the performance of their car by selecting the correct tyres. Tyres are an integral part of the vehicle and the only part that is in contact with the road surface. If you have bad tires the grip and control will not be optimal and you might lose control over the vehicle during sharp curves. Aquaplaning will also be more prevalent if the tyres are in bad condition as you will need good tread depth to be able to prevent aquaplaning during heavy rain. Good summer tires are key for preventing aquaplaning and since this is the most frequent cause of accidents during the summer rain, it is good to have tyres that are able to prevent it.
When you face other challenges such as winter weather, then you will need to have tyres that are approved for these conditions. You should have summer tyres during the summer and winter tyres during the winter or then at least all-weather tires that are approved for winter conditions. If you don’t face any winter weather during the year, then you can manage with a summer tyre for the whole year round, but then you will need to make sure that you rotate the tyres to ensure even wear between the rear and the front tyres.
If you have a sports car, it is important that you match that with high performance tyres that can handle the higher speeds. The same is valid if you have an electrical car or a hybrid, as both these will need tyres that can handle the higher loads that comes from the higher weight that these vehicles exhibit due to the battery packs. This is in the same way that you will need special tyres if you have an SUV.
For optimal performance you also need to make sure that you have the correct tyre pressure. If you have wrong tyre pressure you will not get the best performance from your tyres and thus not the best performance from your vehicle. If your tyres have low tyre pressure, then your tyres will wear out faster and it will also lead to your vehicle consuming more fuel. So both these factors will lead to increased costs as well as you will not have the intended grip and performance when you take curves and corners, as you would expect.
