How are 4x4 car tyres unique?
This is a common query which we are often faced with. Even a decade ago, the market for 4x4 car tyres Ipswich was subdued. Gradually, as entry-level sedans and hatchbacks became passé, Sports Utility Vehicles took their place.
SUVs must be installed with proper tyres to fully capitalise on their engine capacity and performance abilities.
There are the 3 major factors which make 4x4 tyres Ipswich different from their kin.
- Aggressive tread pattern: All high-quality SUV tyres have distinguishable tread patterns. The tread blocks are raised with more rubber; the shoulders between treads are broader while the sidewall is slightly elevated. By ‘aggressive’, tyre manufacturers indicate that these tyres can take on any surface - from paved roads to harsh terrains.
- Superior rubber carcass: These units offer improved traction and superior manoeuvrability. That is due to their rubber compound, which is of a different quality compared to standard summer and winter tyres. Silica is often added to ensure that the tyres do not fishtail. Besides, most 4x4 tyres Ipswich are heavier than other variants, which adds to the overall handling performance of an SUV.
- Designed for performance: A to B Tyres Ltd stores different variants of 4x4 tyres for different purposes. Here are two examples:
All Terrain Tyres (AT/T abbreviated) belong to the segment of off-road tyres and - as the name suggests - can be used both off-road and on asphalt. The tyres are characterised by particularly large tread blocks to ensure the best possible grip on off-road terrain.
Mud-terrain means that the tyre can also be used off-road and on the muddy ground.
