The United Kingdom has seen a sudden rise in the sale of Sports Utility Vehicles (SUV). They have more engine power than average cars along with more space for you and your luggage. Especially in a city like Coventry, the newer generation is going for SUVs for these reasons.
This sudden surge has brought along with it a rise in the sale of 4x4 tyres in Coventry and everywhere else in the UK.
For ease of classification, we usually categorise four-wheel tyres into:
- Street terrain tyres (marked with the sign ST).
- All-terrain tyres (marked with the sign AT).
- Mud-terrain tyres (marked with the sign MT).
However, this kind of classification does not work for 4x4/SUV tyres. It is so because almost all of them are street-terrain tyres.
What is the difference between SUV and other types of tyres?
The thing that separates the two is that SUV tyres are significantly sturdier. We, at Central Point MOT Centre, always maintain a vast range of SUV tyres, so that you can choose the best one.
Now, let us see some more differences:
- The most apparent difference is the width of SUV tyres, which are much broader. This characteristic gives them more grip as a larger part of the tyre stays in contact with the surface.
- They are more efficient during off-road driving as compared to regular tyres.
- SUV car tyres have unique tread patterns that offer excellent grip on wet and muddy terrains.
- Although more costly than your regular tyres, they are much more robust and have greater longevity.
How to choose the best tyre for you?
The SUV tyres with an MT mark are made for traversing through rough terrains. So if you prefer adventure, then this is the best choice for you. These tyres have their inner walls reinforced to endure excessive stress while driving on rough patches.
On the other hand, for all the comfort seekers out there, go for street-terrain tyres.
