Most tyres perform well in everyday situations, but difficult conditions will reveal their differences.
So how do you make sure that your tyres are ready for the unexpected?
Choose tyres that can perform well in the worst types of weather or roads that you may encounter. Thanks to the tyre labelling on wet grip, you can compare more easily!
And the difference can be huge:
On wet roads, a distance of 16 meters is what differentiates a vehicle fitted with A tyres from a vehicle fitted with F tyres travelling at 80 km/h1.
That is almost the length of a lorry!

Not all tyres are equal – choosing the right ones can help to keep you safe.
