To make sure the performance of your new tyres is right for your use, think about the following points:
At Michelin, we offer different tyre ranges to fit different needs. For example, some are specially designed for sporty driving, others for quieter driving or for fuel economy. Ask yourself what driving style suits you so you can be guided to the correct tyre category.
We have summer, winter and all-season tyres whose performance is designed according to climatic conditions.
When the temperature drops below 7°C, winter tyres are better than summer tyres.
When the temperature becomes milder again, your winter tyres can then be replaced with summer tyres.
This also applies if you live in a place with moderate temperatures and that you frequently travel by car where winter temperatures are more severe, eg in the mountains for skiing.
All-season tyres are otherwise a polyvalent solution.
Do you drive more often on city roads, country roads or highways? This is a criteria that can also be taken into account when buying tyres.
This is one of the questions your dealer is likely to ask you. If you do not know how many miles you cover yearly on average, a very simple calculation allows you to determine it:
Divide the first number by the second and you will know how many kilometers you drive on average each year.
This information will also help your dealer guide you to the most suitable range of tyres depending on whether you drive a lot, moderately or little.
By following these points, you will have well prepared your visit to the tyre dealer. You will then be able to answer all the important questions and buy the right tyres for your use
