Car tires partially absorb the shocks caused by irregularities in the road, affect the cost effectiveness and comfort of driving. And what is the most important – they provide safety! The controllability of а car, length of braking distance, resistance to aquaplaning, directional stability on different road surfaces (wet or dry asphalt, ice, snow) and off-road performance depend on tyre design.
Today, a large number of car tires are produced. They are differ by the following criteria:
Before choosing tires, you should first read the car owner's manual for tire size recommendations. Don’t forget to take into consideration speed and load indices. Height of cross-section is also important, since it can be different with the same tire width.
When choosing tires, you should pay attention to their seasonality. According to the season, tires are divided into summer, winter and all-season. Symbols on a tire sidewall indicate that the tire is designed for a particular season. For winter tires, this is “winter” or a snowflake symbol, (“3PMSF”), for all-season tires – “all season” or “AS”. The abbreviation “M + S” (Mud + Snow) is often used, which is interpreted as “dirt plus snow” and means that this tire is designed to be used in all seasons. The absence of such designations means that this is a summer tire.
When choosing tires, you should also pay attention to the size. In passenger car tires, it consists of three groups of figures and the letter R. For example, 205 / 55R16 where 205 means width of tread in millimeters; 55 - height of tire sidewall in percent. R - radial (there are also cross-plied tires); 16 - diameter of tire in inches.
When you buy tires in Kiev, ask for warrantee. With this document you will be able to replace a tire or get your money back in case the tire is defective.
If the tyres have Certificates of Quality it means that the manufacturer has confirmed the compliance of products with the standards. The document confirms reliability of tyres and eliminates the possibility of any harm caused during their use.
All tyres wear out eventually, so when choosing tyres it is important to consider the service life declared by the manufacturer. The average service life is 5-7 years, but to ensure safe driving, manufacturers and tyre shops in Ukraine recommend checking tyre wear after 3-4 years.
