In some countries it is compulsory to use different tyres in summer and winter and although here in the UK that isn’t the case, summer tyres are still well worth considering, especially as our weather becomes more extreme. Summer tyres are more efficient in warmer weather and therefore deliver improved MPG.
All Gordons Tyre Centres carry a big range of summer tyres in every popular size and our technicians will be very happy to show you the choice available for your particular car. Summer tyres have a different type of tread which ensures optimum contact with the road surface, better handling and greatly improved braking.
There is absolutely nothing extravagant about having two sets of tyres and changing them in spring and autumn. All over the country our technicians do that for our customers and at the same time we can check your wheel alignment because if that has been affected by potholes, for example, it will reduce tyre life, often quite dramatically. To put it at its simplest, summer tyres are appropriate in temperatures above 7 degrees C.
By simply putting your registration number into our handy tyre finder tool on the homepage you will see all the choice we can offer you in summer tyres and you will be very pleased with the price range. If you prefer a face to face discussion then by all means go to your nearest Gordons Tyre Centre and one of our staff will answer all your questions and, completely free of charge, carry out a safety check on your current tyres. If you are unsure what type of tyres you have, again we are happy to help so feel free to call in or even seek advice from us by telephone. Although we have a very sophisticated website to help our customers we are still very much a “people” business and always pleased to see you. Summer or winter.
