Summer Tyres

Bourne Car & Van Hire take great pride in offering the very best in high-quality tyres in the Lincolnshire area. Whatever your need then we can help.

Summer tyres were mainly known for being a typical regular tyre up until the production of the winter tyre. Winter tyres were manufactured to allow enhanced 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.

If it is a high-performance tyre you are after then a summer tyre is the ideal choice as they are designed for agility and speed in mind. The tyre has been uniquely 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 exceeds 7oc this is the time to get your summer tyres fitted, as they are far safer in warmer temperatures. There is also a huge 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.
