SUV Summer Tyres

Summer tyres generally suit the UK market as a tyre that is fitted to vehicles in the UK thanks to our mild climate. As a rule of thumb, the high tread elasticity and stiff compounds of a summer tyre perform best in temperatures above 7°c in both wet and dry conditions. The benefit of this is that drivers get outstanding grip, responsive handling, and shorter braking distances.

Using tyres specifically designed for SUV use means the tyre is designed to take the additional weight and higher centre of gravity of an SUV. Choosing the right seasonal tyre for your SUV is especially important due to the heavier vehicle weight SUV tyres must carry. This means having the right tyres for the right weather can make a big difference on the way the vehicle performs, brakes, and handles on the road. 

How To Choose the Best SUV Summer Tyres

When it comes to selecting the best summer tyres for your SUV, it’s important to take into consideration key elements such as:

  • Driving style
  • Amount of mileage covered annually
  • Typical driving terrain
  • Original Equipment – which tyres were fitted to your car from factory that the manufacturer designed to provide optimum ride comfort and performance characteristics
  • Type of vehicle – there are many variations of SUVs
  • Noise rating
  • Tyre size
