Tyre Safety Month 2019 - All Season Tyres
One of our main jobs here at Hometyre, as you may have guessed, is to sell you tyres! But the most important part of that job is to make sure we do it correctly and SAFELY!
Therefore, this is the perfect time for us to talk to you about the importance of ALL SEASON TYRES! We will be looking into winter tyres a little later into the month but for now we will compare some All Season options out there for LIGHT COMMERCIAL VEHICLES (vehicles under 3.5 tonne) and let you know the benefits of fitting them to your vehicle!
All Season for Light Commercial Vehicles
Your work van is one of the things that carries your business, having a day of ice and snow could easily put you out of a whole day of earnings. Once temperatures drop below 7 degrees Celsius the performance of your summer tyres will be noticeably reduced. Braking distances will be increased and your grip to the road surface will worsen, the rubber compound in an All Season tyre has been specifically designed to not harden as temperatures fall as much as summer tyres do.
We do offer a summer to winter swap-over here at Hometyre which works great for many our customers. However, if for example, you own a fleet of vehicles you may not have the time in your busy schedule to book in for your vans to have that all important swap-over to keep your business running efficiently through the winter months. The great thing about All Season (A/S) tyres is that they could offer fleets all the benefits of winter tyres but without having to swap back to summers come early next year as they have also been designed to perform well in summer temperatures.
We have listed below some All Season options for your light commercial vehicle.
BUDGETIf you're looking to stay on the lower end of the price scale you could look at a budget tyre, although keep in mind if you are doing particularly high mileage it may be worth looking at jumping up a price bracket to mid-range - the budget tyres we have available change all the time, so if you're looking for a budget A/S tyre give us a call today to find out what your options are! 0333 444 5454 or alternatively you can use our online search shown on the homepage.
If you cannot find what you're looking for don't hesitate to call us though, we can try and work our magic for you!
MID RANGEMaxxis AL2 - this is a great mid-range option, for example in a 215/70R15 they would cost you (at 03/10/2019 - prices may change) £94.75 per tyre for a full set fully fitted (inc VAT). If you have a particular day in mind or would like to chat about more options just call our team on 0333 444 5454.
PREMIUMMichelin Agilis Cross Climate - one of the most popular All Season options for both light commercial and car tyres and highly recommended by us.
As at 03/10/2019 they would cost around £140.00 inc VAT per tyre fully fitted for a full set, a little more expensive than going for some other brands but you really do get what you pay for! Ultimately a price worth keeping your business safe out there during the upcoming winter.
