by Easington Service Station Welcome to Easington Service Station, Easington

SUVs, 4X4, and crossovers make up more than 25% of the total number of cars in Europe. They are the preferred choice of people, especially in the UK because of the convenience, performance, and comfort they offer.

By design, these vehicles require special tyres that can cope up with the output of these cars and the rugged terrain they often drive on. However, buying tyres are not that easy a job as most people think it is. From braking to steering, bad tyres can have a negative impact on most of your car parts.

So, before you head over to a tyre retailer to buy a brand new set for your SUV, consider these 4 things to choose the best SUV or 4x4 tyres in Easington.

  1. How do you use your SUV?

If you use your vehicle mostly in urban or semi-urban traffic, e.g. commuting to the office, going to the grocery store, dropping the kids off to school, etc., you can use a set of good quality road/summer SUV tyres. These tyres are ideal for paved roads, offering low rolling resistance as well as low tyre noise. Such tyres decrease the rolling resistance giving you better mileage.

Road tyres are fine for occasional off-roading. However, if you are looking for something more adventurous, you should go for purpose-built off-road tyres. These tyres sport large grooves to get traction even in mud and sand. They also have excellent durability, thanks to a silica mixed rubber compound. Point worth mentioning, these are not the best option if you are planning to drive on tarmac.

  1. What is speed and load rating?

A speed rating is the highest speed that a particular tyre can be safely driven at. For SUVs, it is difficult to find tyres that have the same ratings as your original ones. It is best to go for the manufacturer that supplies the OE for your vehicle.

SUV tyres have a higher load rating than other tyres. It is important to accommodate the bigger chassis and engine block along with larger cargo capacity. Always check the load capacity of your car tyres before buying. Go for something that has the same rating as your current set.

  1. Are the tyres compatible?

The tyre must comply with overall diameter, rim size and width. You can get tyres that are slightly larger in width, but it should not be larger than 5% in height or 10% in width.

  1. Check out the tread patterns

With 4x4 tyres, there are three choices for tread patterns- all-terrain, road and mud tyres. The difference between the tyres can be gauged by the spacing between the tread blocks and grooves.

With these specifications in mind, you can get the perfect tyres for your SUV/4x4.
