Bridgestone is advising fleet operators to equip their vehicles with all-weather tyres to cope with the fluctuating UK weather conditions.
It claims that MET office data shows the UK can produce up to four seasons of weather in one day.
Erratic and unpredictable weather patterns can disrupt motorists’ daily commutes and long-distance travel planning and as a result drivers may be best with tyres that are able to withstand whatever the skies bring.
All-weather tyres, like Bridgestone’s A001, have a silica compound which allows for confident handling year round, while maintaining long tyre life and dry performance.
In wet weather, specially-designed lens-shaped blocks help lessen turbulence and evacuate water to reduce the risk of hydroplaning.
The tread pattern on the A001 has been adjusted for low noise and maximum road contact to increase control for a safer journey when travelling on surfaces that may be dangerous.
