Mytyres.co.uk: Good reasons to choose summer tyress
  • Winter and summer tyre specialist for applications perfectly aligned with your needs: When it’s warm, summer tyres maintain their advantages when it comes to safety and economy.
  • Customers can order the perfect summer tyres quickly and securely from Mytyres.co.uk and benefit from attractive prices and additional services.

Delticom AG/Mytyres.co.uk, Hanover – 19.05.2016. When the temperature rises and the sun keeps appearing, it’s time to change to summer tyres. As a rule of thumb: As soon as the daily temperatures stay above seven degrees Celsius, and no more frost is expected, you should change over - but why?

In many European countries, there is a legal requirement to have adequate winter tyres. In contrast, there are no such regulations for summer tyres, except in Italy. But even if there is no obligation, there are very good reasons to put on summer tyres. Compared to winter tyres, they are specially designed for warm weather conditions, and offer many benefits. Above all, this is due to the different rubber blend. Winter tyres are softer and, due to their design, they generally have a higher rolling resistance than summer tyres. Along with their typical lamella profile, this delivers perfect grip on snow and ice, but conversely, this is a disadvantage in higher temperatures. Abrasion increases, which leads to faster wear and tear. Even more important: Tests by the tyre manufacturer Continental show that stopping distances at 15 degrees Celsius are significantly longer with winter tyres. This means a vehicle with summer tyres under these conditions on a dry road at 100 km/h stops eight metres earlier than with winter tyres, on wet roads six metres earlier. Modern summer tyres are also optimised to keep rolling resistance as low as possible, without compromising grip - with a corresponding effect on fuel consumption.

Mytyres.co.uk: Driving better with summer tyres
  • Still using your old winter tyres in summer? Not a good idea: in warm weather, summer tyres provide increased efficiency and safety
  • Motorists can enjoy considerable savings: order perfect summer tyres quickly and securely from Mytyres.co.uk and benefit from attractive prices and additional services

Delticom AG/Mytyres.co.uk, Hanover – 07.04.2016. Springtime is tyre-changing time. However, some people who have been driving on old winter tyres might consider wearing them out completely by leaving them for all summer, thus saving themselves the cost of having the tyres changed as well as the possible cost of a new set of summer tyres. By doing so, they sacrifice their own safety and purchasing efficiency.

The properties of summer and winter tyres are designed to meet the specific requirements of weather conditions at different times of year. In this way, they ensure optimum efficiency and safety in the prevailing weather conditions. While it may be very tempting to drive straight through to autumn on winter tyres, in warm temperatures summer tyres are a better choice. The general rule of thumb is: from Easter to October. Once the average temperature is mostly above seven degrees Celsius, summer tyres show off all their advantages.
