Looking for a smoother ride?
Posted by: Cal on 3/04/2013
One thing which can make driving more of a chore than it needs to be is a ride that is anything but smooth.
We can't all afford the luxury of a Rolls Royce and the feeling of gliding along on a cloud, yet that doesn’t mean we have to put up with a mini-earthquake every time we go down the road!
A smoother ride isn't just possible, it can be downright affordable - and even cost saving in the long run.
Since your vehicle only contacts the road surface at four points, it makes sense to focus on your tyre performance when looking at ways to improve your ride.
Perhaps your tyres are over inflated. When this is the case, they won't have as much 'give' to absorb the small and large bumps on the road, which means that you will feel them more.
By letting some air out so your car tyres are at the correct pressure you could feel an instant improvement in your car's ride.
It may also be however that your current tyres aren't designed with comfort in mind.
Luckily, we've made it easy to compare tyres online and rate each of the tyres we sell out of ten for Comfort, as well as several other categories.
That way you can make an informed buying decision for your next set of tyres based on exactly the kind of ride and performance you want.
