Rapid designed the P309 with a symmetric tread pattern to provide reliable traction and responsive braking in both wet and dry weather conditions.
The tyre features a grooved central rib with tilted sipes to improve traction when accelerating and to deliver straight line stability. Four longitudinal grooves help to remove water from the tyre's path - reducing the risk of aquaplaning on wet surfaces.
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.
