Always equip good tires to your car
It is necessary to know that, in general, the good tires of our car have to be changed every 40,000 or 50,000 km, at most, while the worst ones must be replaced every 10,000 km. This is important for our security, since they are present in all sections of dynamic behavior.
As you know, these compounds have the main function of supporting the weight of the car in order to reduce the impact of the road as much as possible, as well as directing traction, braking and changing the direction of travel. However, although all tires share the same task, not all have the same durability and its useful life will depend, to a greater extent, of its use and its brand.
Because if; Not all manufacturers are of the same quality, nor are all compounds equally durable. And if we have an electric car, this aspect of our tires can make the vehicle even more effective. This is what we have, for example, with E-primacyMichelin, or Continental.
Which ones are the best
In any case, the opinion of the driver is essential to find out the reliability and satisfaction. However, how often do users change their car tires? According to the OCU, 71% change the tires when the rubber is already used, 18% do it to prevent and for safety before they are worn out.
The rest, after an accident, are forced to replace them due to a specific defect, failure or any consequence derived from it. That is why it is important to make use of what may be the better to use in our car, be it an electric, hybrid or combustion one. The best of all is that these will do to improve it, achieving, on many occasions, that it has a longer journey.
Yokohama and Michelin, the great supporters
As such, one of the most and best seen in the specific use of the electric car is the one that has to do with the e-Primacy of Michelin, an ecological and economical tire that tries to fulfill different (and not easy) commitments. In his case, this is done with an eco cover that aims to be much more sustainable from the manufacturing process to the end of its useful life, with a high level of ‘grip’ but low ‘friction’ with the asphalt.
According to the manufacturer, this translates into a reduction in fuel consumption (0.21 l per 100 km) and in emissions. Michelin, for its part, has observed with its users that after traveling 30,000 km, its performance allows it to pass the R117 European homologation test for braking on wet asphalt. But he is not the only one who stands out. In fact, this one has a great vision next to those from Yokohama.
Specifically, it should be borne in mind that, according to the OCU study, with tires from brands such as Yokohama or Michelin you can travel more than 44,000 kilometers, and with the last ones on the list, you slightly exceed 30,000. So, even brands like Goodyear, where you will add up to 40,000 kilometers, the rest of the brands accumulate successively less.
The list reflects the kilometers that the respondents did with the tires before changing them. Surprising, for example, the high valuation of the Vredestein or the Tuyo ahead of the Continental or Dunlop.
- Yokohama. 44.634 km
- Michelin. 44.187
- Vredestein. 42,973
- Toyo. 42.406
- Continental. 41.943
- Uniroyal. 41.902
- Dunlop. 41.139
- Bridgestone. 40.693
- Goodyear. 40.271
- Hankook. 39,649
