Product description & features

The Sumitomo BC100 has been designed to provide drivers with confidence in both safety and performance.

Carefully designed by Sumitomo to feature broad circumferential grooves – spaced meticulously to deliver optimal performance – the BC100 has exceptional resistance to aquaplaning due to the rounded water evacuation systems that have been woven within the tyre. To provide additional confidence in wet conditions, the Sumitomo BC100 has a stiffened central rib to provide extra stability.

Created with a silica-rich compound design and a 5-rib asymmetric tread design, the BC100 delivers outstanding directional stability and handling, while also providing shorter braking distances. Thanks to the unique tread design, there is a notable increase in steering response in dry conditions.

Summer Tyres

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.
