CHOOSING TIRES SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED FOR ELECTRIC VEHICLES, WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES?

Driving electric is synonymous with performance and environmental awareness. To maximize the range and safety of your EV, tire selection is crucial. Here are some advantages of choosing tires specifically designed for electric vehicles :

1. Low rolling resistance.

Tires with low rolling resistance reduce energy consumption and increase the range of your EV.

2. Higher load index.

Electric vehicles are heavier than conventional vehicles. Tires designed for EVs have a load index capable of supporting more weight and are therefore particularly recommended for electric vehicles.

3. Adapted for quiet driving.

Electric vehicles are inherently very quiet. EV tires offer excellent noise reduction performance for an even more enjoyable ride for the driver and passengers.

4. Adapted tread pattern.

Specific EV tires often offer increased acceleration performance thanks to a tread pattern adapted to the specific needs of this category of vehicles.

5. Designed to last.

Reduce the risk of punctures and keep your tires longer with models designed for improved durability.

6. Adhesion, a key factor.

To allow EV drivers to benefit from similar performance to gasoline-powered vehicles, the adhesion of EV tires is designed to facilitate acceleration, braking and overall handling.
