Product description & features
The macro-block design on the tyre’s outer shoulder provides a greater contact area, helping the tyre adjust to the road surface – enhancing grip and safety when cornering.
With short-chain polymers in the Black Chilli compound, this tyre offers improved braking distance on both wet and dry roads. Due the vibrations within the compound being significantly lower at a constant speed and the absorbed energy being released more efficiently – this leads to a higher mileage whilst also reducing fuel consumption.
With Self-Supporting Runflat (SSR) technology, in the case of a puncture, the tyre is prevented from being crushed between the rim and the ground along with stopping the tyre from slipping off the rim – leading to a safer drive even in the case of damage.
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.
