When is it a good idea to purchase a new set of winter tyres for your SUV?

To increase the driving safety, you should invest in a premium set of winter tyres. This is especially true if you live in an area with heavy snow and real winter conditions. Even if you own an SUV you really need good winter tyres.  This is because the SUV is a much heavier vehicle, and even though the SUV benefits from the 4-wheel drive, it is actually the tyres that provide grip and, therefore, traction. If you stay in an area with severe winters, the best option is to invest in dedicated winter tyres for your SUV. Winter tyres exist both studded and non-studded, with the latter being the ultimate for severe winters.

There are many different SUV winter tyres on the market however if you are looking for a high-quality tyre, the Nokian Hakkapeliitta 10 SUV tyres are a good option. They provide a well-balanced grip due to the unique double stud technology, which ensures safe handling during extreme conditions. It offers a well-balanced grip, especially for heavy vehicles, to ensure better control and handling. It is important to have winter tyres installed before the winter arrives and the temperatures drop below freezing. Even if you currently are running SUV summer tyres, you would still need to switch to dedicated winter tyres once the temperatures drop below freezing. This is because the rubber compound, even with summer tyres, is not made for below-freezing temperatures and, therefore, not suitable for the cold winter weather.

Winter tyres are usually made of rubber compounds that remain flexible and soft even under low temperatures. This is different from summer and summer tyres that tend to become stiffer in cold weather conditions. The Nokian Hakkapeliitta 10 SUV tyres feature a designed tread pattern that provides optimal performance on cold icy roads. These grooves are able to push the heavy slush aside to prevent slushplaning and aquaplaning. This is a valuable feature as slushplaning is probably the most dangerous form of hydroplaning.  Slushplaning  occurs when the snow melts to slush on the roads and the tyres aren’t able to remove if from the layer between the tyres and the road surface. The Nokian Hakkapeliitta 10 SUV tyres are environmentally friendly. The new eco stud system with its modern stud concept distributes the stud’s impact force across a wider area, thereby reducing road wear and assures that the noise level is comfortable level.

The tyres are also available for electric SUVs with their Nokian Hakkapeliitta 10 EV that also fits SUV dimensions. When you combine these winter tyres with a set of premium summer tyres for the warm seasons of the year, you will have the maximum performance and safety, regardless of what weather conditions each season offers. If you then check your tyre pressure regularly your tyres should last for a long time and your fuel consumption should remain low. Then just monitor the tread depth so that you know when to rotate the tyres and when you need to change to a new set.
