On april 15 is the last day with snow tyres if it's not winter there. Choosing the right tires is really no simple task – but it becomes a little easier if you prepare and read on. And decide which characteristics are important for you as a driver. Do you like a rapp governance and firmer chassireaktioner? Or do you prioritise comfort and directional stability?
Tires are always a compromise between different characteristics. This means that you will never find a tire that is good at everything. This is precisely why it is so important to read on and create your own order of priority on the following:
• braking performance
• wet grip
• directional stability
• Fuel efficiency
Unfortunately, puts the automotive spanners in the works for däckköpare when the same model is offered with everything from normal to extreme dimensions and wheel sizes. It allows you can be forced to choose something hard and sporty even if you don't want it – that dimension does not exist in the type of tyre you really want.
Let us give an example.
225/50 R17 in the standard design, a dimension that gives the V60 great comfort and a restful nature. Which should be the goal for most people who will use the V60, or how?
But the car can be fitted with up to 20-inches directly from the Volvo with the dimension 245/35 R20. Which automatically gives the deck focused on the sport and grip. A search on Michelin's website gave the recommendation Pilot Sport 4's, thus, an extremely prestandadäck which is the step during a gatgodkänt racingdäck.
with large wheels, and many also like the look. But you are automatically in a whole different grouping of tyres give quite different performance. Completely OK, provided that the choice is consciously made. The problem is that many ports in this grouping of tyres just because they want bigger rims, not necessarily suppervassa performance. Not only that such tires will also be much more expensive.
in Addition, you won't be forced rarely buy tires with speed rated which is far higher than what you need. This role technically, but the tyres will be once again more expensive.
