Why do you need special tyres for your SUV?
As mentioned earlier, SUVs and their tyres are unique in many ways. Let’s take a look at how SUV tyres in our inventory are different from their standard passenger car counterparts.
- Sidewall construction
You may notice that SUV car tyres are a tad bit larger than regular car tyres. The sidewall is also larger, which not only complements the size of the vehicle but also offers a higher ground clearance necessary for off-roading. The sidewalls are constructed with a harder compound of rubber to support the extra load of SUVs.
- Tread pattern
The design intent behind the tread pattern of an SUV tyre is not just influenced by paved streets but rough, off-road conditions as well. The knobbier tread pattern of SUV tyres can be attributed to that fact. A typical SUV tyre also sports square tread blocks that enhance the PSI force of its contact patch.
- Speed rating & load index
Compared to standard car tyres, 4x4 tyres in Scarborough generally have a lower speed rating but higher load index. The squared-off tread blocks which generate additional traction lower its speed rating, whereas the harder rubber compound enhances the load index.
