Van Tyres - What You Need to Know Before Buying a New Set

by Gilgal Tyres Automotive Business

Vans traverse through a lot of tough and beaten roads, deals with heavy loads, and perform heavier tasks than the average passenger car. Hence, vans need hardier tyres, and you will need appropriate knowledge to buy the right one.

When you are looking for van tyres, look for ‘LT’ mark, which means that a tyre is appropriate for light trucks. Along with the LT mark, van tyres may also bear markings such as XL, meaning extra load, or RF, which means reinforced. These tyres usually have reinforced sidewalls that enable them to transport heavy loads over long distances.

Features of van tyres

  • Van tyres have a design optimised for fuel economy.

  • These tyres deliver reliable performance across all seasons.

  • A particular focus is put on the braking performance for all road conditions, as in, wet, muddy and snowy roads, while manufacturing these tyres.

  • Van tyres specifically feature low rolling resistance, which ensures less abrasion and longer service span.

When buying van tyres, be sure to choose from the top brands. Along with regular car tyres, almost all top tyre manufacturers produce van tyres. Brands like Continental, Pirelli, and Dunlop are among the best products you should look for while buying new Van Tyres Manchester.

Top tyre models

  • Continental TrueContact

  • Michelin Defender T+H

  • Cooper CS5 Grand Touring

  • Michelin Premier A/S

  • Goodyear Assurance Triple Tread All Season

  • Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

Although these tyres are quite sturdy and are made to last for a long time, they will need regular maintenance to deliver the best performance.

Tips to make the best out of your van tyres

  1. Check your tyre’s pressure level regularly, to make sure it’s within the optimal range. Additionally, check tyre pressure when the tyres are cool, to get an appropriate measurement.

  2. Inspect regularly for debris, nails, or any other sharp objects stuck in your tyre’s tread.

  3. Inspect for cracks and bulges in the sidewall, as they can lead to a tyre blowout.

  4. Always maintain proper wheel alignment to avoid any uneven tread wear.

  5. It is crucial to pay attention to the tyre labelling before you fit van tyres. With stricter emission standards and rising fuel costs, and pressure from government authorities to reduce the environmental impact of fleet vehicles, fleet managers are facing a lot of challenges.

Tyres have additional special labels for parameters that will help fleet managers to make the right decision while purchasing the right tyres in Manchester. These parameters are

  • Fuel efficiency – Ratings ranging from A to G refers to fuel efficiency.

  • Wet grip – Similar to fuel efficiency, a rating between A to G refers to braking distance.

  • Noise – Noise is rated with a one, two, or three bar rating, with one bar meaning the quietest performance and three bar being the noisiest.

Visit a professional garage to purchase high quality van tyres. Auto garages such as Gilgal Tyres have an extensive collection of van tyres. They also offer tyres across other categories such as 4x4 tyres, winter tyres and run flat tyres.
