The tyres on a car are very important for the performance of the car. They are able to translate the performance of the car to actually performance on the road.
Without proper tyre selection you can’t really translate the perfect performance of the car. This is very evident when it comes to a sports car that should be able to take corners at a high speed, but with bad tyres the tyres will lose grip and skid potentially out of control.
Bad tyres can also turn a car that should be safe into a car that has bad safety performance, as the grip is bad. Good tyres need to have both good wet and dry grip on the surface that you drive on.
If you also drive on winter surfaces, it is important to have winter tyres that can provide sufficient grip and traction on snow and ice, so that you can drive safely.
For winter tyres you can often choose between studded tyres, non-studded tyres and in some areas also winter approved all-weather tyres. These have different situations where they excel and the choice depends on what is most suitable for you.
Studded tyres provide the best grip on ice, but have some limitations on where they can be used and also limitations on the period they can be used.
Non-studded tyres have very good flexibility as they can be used anywhere, but they should only be used during the winter season.
The all-weather tyres can be used all year round and are very flexible and can be used in most places. With them you are always ready to drive, but for long winters it is still better to alternate between summer and winter tyres.
