Tyre Tread Depth

Anyone who has looked at a tyre has come across a pattern of grooves and channels on the body of the tyre. These patterns, called tyre treads, differs from one model to another and is very important in ensuring the capability and safety of the tyre itself.

Why is your car’s tyre tread important?

When you drive your vehicle, the tyre makes contact with the road surface, and treads provide the necessary grip required by your vehicle. Experts spend months researching for the best tread pattern for tyres in an attempt to render maximum traction while driving.

At MG Auto Motorsport Ltd in Ripley, Nottinghamshire, we have a multitude of options to choose from catering for a myriad of vehicles under different climatic conditions. Let’s take a look at some of the more common variations out there.

* Summer types –

They come with a profile depth of 4mm (ideal), and parallel channels, with grooves in body and shoulder. Being made of a harder rubber compound, they provide more grip on warmer or wet road conditions. Also, a summer tyre is designed for higher speeds than a winter one.

* Winter types –

Winter tyres are made of softer rubber that can withstand winter climates and has deeper grooves to grip snowy and slippery roads. Experts recommend them whenever the temperature drops considerably.

* All season types –

All season tyres are best for a balanced usage in different weather conditions. With deep tyre treads like snow tyres and parallel channels like a summer tyre, they are preferable for people who want a budget option.

* 4X4 types –

Ideal for off-road vehicles, or SUVs, 4X4 tyres are made tougher to withstand the punishment of rough terrains. We have 3 types of 4X4 tyre treads in Ripley, Nottinghamshire:
