The different types of tyres available these days

No matter what type of vehicle you have, it is a good idea to invest in a brand new set of tyres. This blog post will give you all the information you need about tyre types. There are many different tyre options available on the market, but some are better suited to certain cars than others. Here is a breakdown of each type and what they’re used for:

Bias-ply tyres

Bias or bias-belted tyres have the construction that runs diagonally across the tire from bead to bead. They came onto the scene in 1909 and were widely used until 1994 when radial tires became more popular due to less rolling resistance which reduced fuel consumption by up to 11%.

Radial ply tyres

The most common type of tyres that are being used today and are commonly available at any Dubai tyre shop has a strong steel belt under its rubber tread – this gives them excellent stability while reducing rollover risk compared with older designs. Radial belts provide extra strength at the sidewall, and improve steering response compared with bias-plies. They’re typically used on sports cars as they require a stiffer construction to handle the higher speeds at which these vehicles travel.

Truck tyres

Truck tyres are obviously designed for heavy loads carried by large trucks over long distances – this is why they have such an impressive load rating of between 4400 kgs and 22 500 kgs. If you are interested, consider buying Bridgestone tyres!

Winter or snow tyres

If you live in a place where there is a lot of snow in the winter, it is important to invest in some dedicated winter tyres or snow tires. Using summer or all-season tyres at this time of year will make driving slippery and dangerous – so always buy appropriate ones!

Tread depth

As well as being made from different materials, each tyre also has its own tread design which affects how they perform on certain surfaces. Many factors come into play when choosing which tread pattern you need for your car – these include speed limits where you drive most often, road conditions (wet/dry), climate zone and more. Here are the main types:
