How are Van tyres different to other tyres?
Regular tyres are designed to give your vehicle comfort, grip performance and reduced road noise. Van tyres are designed for carrying heavy loads over long distances, so van tyres need to have improved performance in all of these areas in order to be effective. On top of this van tyres come with strengthened sidewalls to cope with additional weight and for long journeys in all types of weather conditions. It is critically important that you fit the correct van tyres for their ability to withstand heavy loads, and offer longevity, but they are also vital for safety. The correct van tyres will help your improve your vans handling, braking and cornering. Picking the right tyres for your van will also help reduce fuel consumption, which saves you money and help to reduce CO2 emissions, which helps the environment which is even better!
What brands of van tyres do you stock?
Pirelli is a leading manufacturer of premium van tyres. When it comes to van tyres, Pirelli leads from the front. The two most popular ranges of Pirelli van tyres are the Carrier and the Chrono.
Pirelli calls the Carrier its ‘high technology tyre;’ it was released only after it had passed extensive testing. It uses technology from other ultra-high-performance tyres such as the P Zero and Cinturato P7, but it places emphasis on two key factors that are extremely relevant for the van market: safety and total life cost.
The Carrier range includes Summer, Winter, and all-season versions; they are all designed to be long-lasting, efficient and offer improved performance and comfort (compared to Pirelli’s older models).
The Carrier Summer tyre is intended for use in the months when temperatures are higher than seven degrees centigrade while the Carrier Winter is designed to deal with colder, wetter conditions. Both are available in a selection of sizes, encompassing 14, 15, and 16-inch fitments.
The Carrier All Season offers excellent braking and handling even in wet conditions, and the capacity to travel more miles. It also has reduced levels of tyre noise, lower risk of aquaplaning, higher mileage, and increased comfort levels. It is an industry leader in terms of safety on wet roads.
