What tires are best in snow conditions?


Not tire as a tire. The fact that his car indulge in the most expensive winter tires on the market is far from a guarantee that your car will not be on an unsuitable surface slippery. Quite the contrary. When buying a special tire, it is necessary to know how to alter their driving behavior, depending on the surface. It is quite possible that the Arctic specials that otherwise keeps track on plain ice will for Czech winter with wet roads and a morass of slush wholly inappropriate.

"When selecting winter tires for our winters, it is important to get the best tire maintained properties on all kinds of surfaces - ranging from dry to wet and slush to snow and ice. These properties each year with the advent of new types of tire changing, but years of proven brands are Continental and Michelin. Features overview-selling brands of tires on different surfaces can be found with a recommendation in the annual tests, usually during September on the Internet, "advises Tomas Svoboda from Auto ESA

Three basic classes

And how to choose? First of all, according to size. Especially if you have an older used car, you need to check whether you have the right tires. Indication of the homologated tire is in great techničáku. There you will find the exact tire size, ie height, width and diameter of the disk, which should be followed. These numbers should match the numbers on the tire.

Attention, winter tires is also necessary to observe the prescribed speed index, which is specified in the technical license for large dimension tires.

If you have selected dimension, it is worth to take into account the quality of the tires condition of your car. The tires are basically divided into three basic categories: economic (Barum, Kumho, Hankook, Pneumant or Matador), medium (BF Goodrich, Fulda, Firestone, Yokohama) and the highest (Michelin, Goodyear, Dunlop, Bridgestone, Continental, Pirelli). If you have older and less powerful car, you will basically be enough tires Economy Class. The middle class should be for virtually everyone, who expects the utmost emphasis on safety, quality, comfort and the environment selects the highest class.

Tread pattern according to the driving style

The quality of the car should be related to the choice of tire tread design. For cars lower and middle classes, where the expected aggressive driving style, it is sufficient symmetrical tire when the tread on both sides of the tires the same and is entirely in what direction the tires on the car mount.

Cars and higher middle class category is a good treat asymmetric tire where the inner and outer side of the tread varies due to achieve better handling.These tires are usually made comfortable and sporty design. Comfortable tire is quieter and smoother ride. Horse sports shoes is a little noisier, but the car sits better in the corners during aggressive driving.

If you like fast, sporty driving, definitely go for a directional tread pattern. This is usually designed for medium and high categories of cars and is sold mostly in sports performance. These tires are placed on the side of the arrow that indicates the direction of rotation of the vehicle.

Winter tires until March

The wheels of your car winter tires should be kept to around March. If the outside temperature is below +7 ° C, then it is always winter tire in place. Winter tires, unlike the summer made of special rubber mixture which freezes at low temperatures. "Winter tires and in freezing weather remains flexible, elastic and adhesive, while summer hardens and risk of accident is increased up to six times," warns Tomas Svoboda from Auto ESA.This summer tire in the cold and dry in full hardens, it loses its adhesive properties and a skid!

When you leave winter tires on the car longer, nothing happens. Car traffic will be just a little louder and higher friction and recognize the slightly increased consumption.

By the way - higher tire noise may impair the quality of either wear or long storage. Winter tires should have a tread depth of at least 4 mm, in the summer it is 2 mm (wide tires 3 mm).
