Summer Tyres

Here at Loughborough Tyre Refurbs, we take great pride in offering the very best in high-quality tyres. 

Summer tyres were known for being a typical regular tyre up until the production of the winter tyre. Winter tyres were manufactured to allow safety in icy and snowy conditions. Summer tyres are uniquely designed to provide far superior levels of higher performance, resistance against aquaplaning and enabling reduced braking distances when the temperature reaches 7oc and higher.

The summer tyre is the ideal choice for high-performance vehicles as they are built for agility and speed in mind. The tyre has been cleverly designed using a rubber compound which is softer than that of a winter tyre and allows better traction and grip to the ground, therefore, enhancing stability to enable higher levels of performance, improved braking, and cornering. When the temperature drops below 7oc, the unique compound will become stiffer whereas the winter tyre will retain flexibility. There is also a vast difference in tread patterns as summer tyres will offer an enhanced performance in the wet as the unique tread pattern is designed to help disperse excess water to prevent aquaplaning. It also has a more rounded outline which lowers the risk of rolling resistance enabling better grip.

The main benefits of purchasing a Summer Tyre are:

Improved speed and agility

Receptive steering

Enhanced road holding performance

Lower risk of aquaplaning

Greater grip

Better performance in the wet

Reduced braking distances

Minimal noise

We highly recommend you opt for a summer tyre if you drive more than 4000 miles per annum, drive in mixed conditions, require comfort and minimal noise, require better fuel efficiency and want the best safety for yourself and your passengers.

We advise that if you use winter tyres, then you should replace these with summer tyres once the temperature is 7oc or above. If you are concerned about not having the space to store your tyres, then we are more than happy to save them for you in our secure workshop for a nominal fee and will remind you when we feel they should be changed over.
