Did you know your tyres are the single most important safety feature on your vehicle – after all they are the only point of contact with the road. Worn, damaged or simply more economically priced tyres can jeopardise how your car or SUV handles the road, increasing the risk of an accident, and compromises on stopping distance. Not to mention that your car or SUV’s state-of-the art braking system and smart features need tyres that have the strength, grip and tread depth to ensure it can make the most of its safety features.
So, when it comes to buying tyres to keep you and your family safe there are a few things that you should consider:
1. The Right Tyre for Your Vehicle and Lifestyle
When designing a car, the manufacturer puts a significant amount of thought into tyre and wheel sizes to ensure maximum performance and safety. Buying the wrong sized tyre for your vehicle or wheel creates both performance and safety issues. When looking for your next set of tyres, you should take into consideration how you intend to use your vehicle - do you plan on going off-road, or driving mostly to and from work or school pick-ups with some weekend driving to getaway? The wrong tyre can seriously impact your comfort and safety. Hence why it's so important to talk to the tyre experts - either here at Cooper Tires® or at your local tyre store or mechanic.
2. Grip Performance
A poor grip can result in reduced braking time, skidding and a general reduction in stability and control. So when considering your next set of tyres, looking for tyres that don't sacrifice grip, in both wet and dry conditions is paramount. Cooper® car and SUV tyres use the latest advances in tyre technology, meaning you don't have to sacrifice grip and stability for fuel efficiency, longevity and value for money.
3. Tread, Carcass, Compound
With Cooper's unique tread design, industry leading compound (using chemically-coupled silica and other technological advances) in tyres across the car and SUV range, you can have complete confidence that your tyres will stop sooner in an emergency than any other leading brand.
Make sure you ask your tyre guy or mechanic about your tyre's carcass (or how the tyre was built - think foundation of a house... but for tyres). Your tyre's carcass accounts for up to 70% of its performance. Cooper Tires® has developed a specific construction design to meet the requirements of today's car and SUV drivers - meaning we've made it our priority to make sure your vehicle's tyres provide a safe, comfortable ride for the life of the tyre - not just the first 10,000KMs.
You can rely on Cooper® to keep you and your family safe.
