HANOVER, Germany--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Easter is just around the corner, and it’s time for motorists to start thinking about changing to summer tyres. If you are switching to last year’s summer tyres, you need to check them for quality, otherwise the risk of serious accidents increases. Do the tyres have cracks or bumps? Is the tread depth acceptable? If you see signs of damage or irregularities, and of course if the tread depth is less than the recommended three millimetres, you should invest in new summer tyres. When selecting tyres, you will be spoilt for choice. Mytyres.co.uk explains what to look for, and what information you need to find the right tyres for you.
Each vehicle is limited to certain tyre dimensions. You need to know what they are before buying tyres, as the wrong size tyres increases the risk of accidents. Information about the correct size can be found on the vehicle registration certificate, as well as on the sidewall of the tyres currently on your vehicle.
The speed index indicates the permissible maximum speed of a tyre. Manufacturers only guarantee long-term problem-free use up to this limit. The speed index must be in accordance with the car’s maximum speed. It can be found on the vehicle registration certificate, as well as on the sidewall of the tyre. In the case of summer tyres, the specified value may be exceeded, unlike winter tyres. The speed index limit must never be exceeded in winter tyres.
The driver’s individual style and the main use of the tyres are also important factors in the purchase decision. If you are a sporty driver or often go on long journeys, you may need a different tyre than drivers who are more concerned with cost-effectiveness or comfort, or who only travel short distances.
“The tyres are the only part of the vehicle that touch the road, making them crucial for safety, fuel consumption and comfort. That’s why it’s crucial to think about checking and changing them in plenty of time – and not to focus solely on the price when buying new ones”, says Thierry Delesalle from Mytyres.co.uk.
