Summer Tyres

Summer tyres are designed to perform optimally at temperatures exceeding 7°C. With their shallow tread pattern, fewer sipes and stiff rubber compound, they provide unwavering stability and grip even when the roads are wet.

Summer tyres reign supreme from March to November, outperforming their winter and all-season counterparts. However, when temperatures drop, summer tyres become less safe and lose many advantages, so you should also buy a set of winter tyres.


In a head-to-head comparison conducted by TyreSafe, summer tyres had a stopping distance 1.7 metres shorter than winter tyres at 20°C - a significant difference if you have to hit the brakes in an emergency. 


Summer tyres are also slightly cheaper, making them popular amongst motorists. However, prices vary depending on whether you opt for a premium brand like Continental or a budget brand like Accelera. You can find more about how winter tyres differ in this guide.


Choosing the right tyres isn’t just about which season you’ll be using them in; it’s also about how much you want to spend and how much you value performance. Fortunately, most brands - whether budget like Blackarrow, mid-range like Marshal or premium like Pirelli - have a large selection of summer tyres, giving you plenty of choice.
