Explaining Tire Labelling
An authentic EU tire label is required on all passenger tires sold in the European Union. This label includes information on three essential factors for evaluating tire performance: wet grip, fuel efficiency, and outside noise.
The European Tyre Label is a reliable measure of tire performance at its most basic level. However, the narrative is far from over. Your tires must operate at their best in all situations and for the duration of their lifespan to ensure your safety and comfort.
Make Sure Your Tires Are Properly Inflated.
It is critical to maintaining proper inflation pressure to minimize premature or uneven wear. Tires lose pressure with time and must be refilled regularly. Driving with the proper tire pressure extends the life of your tires, improves vehicle safety, and maintains fuel efficiency.
Examine The Depth of Your Tread
More tread equals more traction. That’s all there is to it. Keep in mind that, while the legal limit is 1.6mm, anything less than 3mm might jeopardize performance and safety.
Driving That Is More Environmentally Friendly
Because the environment is such a major concern in today’s culture, there has never been a more critical time to make a change. Bridgestone’s “Make Cars Green” campaign helps to decrease the environmental effect of automobiles (and save you money)
Taking Care of Your Tires
All that stands between you and potentially life-threatening events on the road are four strips of rubber. Tires that are worn or underinflated extend your stopping distance and increase your chance of skidding, as well as consuming more fuel and having a shorter lifespan.
Distance Between Stops
Your tires are the only link between your car and the road, with a vital contact area little larger than your palm. They give you the necessary grip for braking and steering control, which is crucial for safely stopping in an emergency. The time it takes you to come to a complete stop might be the difference between life and death.
What Are the Functions of Tires?
Your tires are crucial for safe driving because they are the only link between your car and the road – a key contact area the size of your palm.
Tires provide four essential functions:
- Provide braking and acceleration grip.
- Maintain directional and steering control.
- Support the vehicle’s weight.
- The shock absorber dampens the impact of road vibrations.
Don’t take your tires for granted; visit your nearest First Stop to get them checked up.
Tires For All Seasons or Different Seasons
There are tires for every season (summer and winter) as well as a mix of summer and winter tires called All-Season or Four-Season tires. If you drive a lot of miles and take lengthy trips throughout the year, the ideal option is to use a combination of Summer and Winter tires in the summer and winter tires in the winter.
Summer tires are built to perform best during the hotter months of the year. When the air temperature is above +7°C, they are designed with a particular tread pattern for maximum performance on both dry and wet roads.
All-Season tires are suitable for nations like the United Kingdom, where winters are less severe and are often colder and wetter with a lower probability of snowfall. They are frequently referred to as ‘four season’ tires since they may be used in spring, summer, autumn, or winter and are built to cope with less severe temperatures.
