Summer tyres in the right season 

Summer tyres play a crucial role in your safety. After all, tyres are the only contact with the road surface. That is why good summer tyres are a requirement for safe and comfortable driving. We, therefore, advise you to drive with the right tyres in every season. 

When should you change to summer tyres? 

With temperatures above 7 ° C change, you should swap your winter tyres for summer tyres. At higher temperatures, the rubber of a winter tyre becomes softer, so the braking distance becomes longer. At a temperature of 15 degrees and a speed of 30 mph, the braking distance is about 20% longer with winter tyres than with summer tyres. The warmer it gets, the greater the difference. 

The profile of a summer tyre is also more focused on the drainage of water, in order to maintain optimal grip during heavy rainfall, while the slats of a winter tyre also guide the discharge of snow.
