Product description & features
The Tomket Eco is a summer tyre that has been designed to produce exceptional performance in both wet and dry conditions. Created with a unique compound – which includes silica – the Tomket Eco is highly durable in difficult condition and the increased stiffness around the centre of the tyre allows for improved traction and stability in both wet and dry conditions, at high speeds.
The Eco has an asymmetrical tread design with three deep grooves that have been designed to quickly and efficiently clear water from the tyre in wet weather – thus improving wet performance and minimising the risk of aquaplaning. The tyre tread of the Tomket Eco also includes solid blocks on the outer tyre to ensure even wear – increasing the lifespan of the tyre – as well as increasing stability potential when cornering.
Tomket have also designed the Eco to have 3D grooves within the tread to increase performance in addition to dramatically cutting the noise produced from the tyre.
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.
