With over 30 years of experience, D&D know our tyres & tyre types. While we agree that all tyres look similar, when you take into consideration the vast range of tyre brands, car manufacturers, tyre treads and the contrasting prices of tyres, you begin to realise that there’s clearly more to them than first meets the eye.

Did you know, for instance, that a rib-shaped tyre tread (where the grooves run into the centre of the tyre in a rib-like pattern) are designed to drain water faster for better traction on wet roads? It’s easy to see why there’s a tyre for every different driving condition, including terrains, driving styles and, as highlighted, weather conditions, all designed to fit into your lifestyle and budget.

Most cars are fitted with all-season tyres as standard, but buying the right tyre to suit your driving needs and style can save you money and keep you safe, so it’s worth considering your driving requirements before you choose your tyre.
