Product description & features
Newly launched in 2012, the Turanza T001 is a tyre boasting reduced irregular wear and pattern noise thanks to its specially designed tread pattern. Thanks to extensive testing, the tyre performs exceptionally well in both dry & wet conditions - with notable resistance to hydroplaning. Produced with safety in mind, the Turanze T001 ensures maximum cornering grip and a high braking force.
What are summer tyres?
Summer tyres are specifically designed for warm weather conditions, particularly during the summer season. This type of tyre performs best when in seasons with warmer temperatures - above 7°C.
How does a summer tyre perform better in summer?
The technologies and tread patterns used in a summer tyre mean the tyres have high-quality features that are of benefit to driving in warm conditions. They typically use a softer rubber compound – designed for good grip and traction when driving on dry and wet roads.
Can you use summer tyres in winter?
Whilst summer tyres still offer adequate performances in wet and cooler conditions, it is recommended that you change. The tread design and technologies that are featured in summer tyres can harden in colder temperatures, resulting in reduced flexibility and decreased traction on snow and ice.
