Electric & Hybrid Tyres
Electric and hybrid tyres are specially designed tyres for electric and hybrid vehicles, which have unique performance requirements due to their specific powertrain and driving characteristics.
Electric and hybrid tyres are designed to provide low rolling resistance, which reduces the energy required to move the vehicle and helps to extend the driving range of the vehicle.
They also often have a tread pattern that is optimised for reduced noise levels, as electric and hybrid vehicles tend to be quieter than traditional internal combustion engine vehicles.
In addition, electric and hybrid tyres may have a stiffer sidewall to help support the added weight of the battery pack, which is typically heavier than a traditional petrol or diesel tank.
They may also have specialised tread compounds that are designed to operate at lower temperatures, as electric and hybrid vehicles tend to produce less heat than traditional internal combustion engine vehicles.
It is important to choose the correct type and size of electric or hybrid tyres for your specific vehicle, as using the wrong tyres can lead to poor handling, reduced safety, and decreased driving range.
It is also important to regularly inspect and maintain electric or hybrid tyres, as they can be subject to damage from prolonged exposure to sunlight, high temperatures, and heavy loads.
