Driving during the festive period presents many challenges and it is no surprise that the number of breakdowns almost doubles when the temperature begins to drop.

Many of us underestimate the importance of winter tyres and continue to use summer tyres all year round. Summer tyres, however, are not designed to cope with the harsh conditions winter can bring and they can impact on your vehicle’s performance and safety on the road.

Buying tyres can be overwhelming and with such a wide range of choice on offer it's difficult to know where to begin.

Merityre Specialists have done some research to help you find out.
Summer is quickly approaching the UK and with rumours of both heat waves and summer showers it may be time to consider changing your tyres. This is because summer tyres have been specifically designed to handle challenges that the season may bring to the roads.
The air pressure within your tyres is the most important factor in determining how well they perform. The tyre's pressure affects your vehicle's speed capability, load carrying capacity, handling response, wear rate and overall safety. It's worth remembering that under-inflated tyres will cause your car to use more fuel and emit more CO2 emissions too.
