The Rapid P609 is a budget tyre, designed for high performance vehicles mainly driven on city and town roads.
Rapid have developed the P609 with a 'Green' silica compound comprised of a high ratio of silica - this helps to improve rolling resistance, leading to a lower fuel consumption.
The tyre's shoulder blocks are designed to reduce deformation of the tyre's shape when cornering, for a stable driving experience.
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.
