Product description & features
This tyre is engineered with three main strengths: improved stopping distances on wet and dry roads, better resistance to aquaplaning and a longer tyre life.
Stopping distances are shortened with angled sipes in the tyre shoulders and at the centre of the tyre which provide for more grip when braking. The high degree of protection against aquaplaning is achieved by double concave grooves, bigger in the centre of the tread pattern to disperse water more efficiently. The RainExpert also features visual alignment indicators (VAIs) on both sides of the tread to indicate uneven wear. The VAIs help to indicate incorrect wheel alignment at an early stage so that corrections can be made to avoid excessive tyre wear.
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.
