Tyres for light trucks

Tyres for minibuses: popular models

Tyres for minibuses are light commercial vehicle (light truck) tyres intended for vehicles carrying cargoes or passengers. Requirements set for tyres for a light commercial vehicle are more severe than those set for passenger car wheels. Light commercial vehicle tyres are intended for minibuses, light trucks, minivans and other vehicles with maximum carrying capacity of maximum 3 tons.

Due to heavy weight loads, you cannot install on minibuses ordinary passenger car tyres or offroader tyres, even those intended for highway driving. Neither the former nor the latter are intended for heavy weights transportation.

The tyre is marked with symbols  “C“, „Cargo“, „Van“  and is capable to withstand heavy loads. The drivers call such tyres „truck tyres“, „commercial tyres“ or „C-tyres“.

Advantages of light truck tyres

On manufacturing light truck tyres, optimum ratios of mixture composition are used, which contribute to a better manoeuvrability of the vehicle. The vehicle can easily follow road bends, even if the vehicle is fully loaded.

Owing to advanced technologies, the rate of wear is reduced, along with reduced rolling resistance, specific tyre grip is attained.

It is necessary to pinpoint the conditions in which you are going to use your minibus: to transport cargoes or passengers, on which roads, in which weather conditions. Weather an all-season set will be sufficient or two sets of tyres will be necessary: studded and studless.

When making a choice, it is necessary to take into consideration the load index, the speed rating, and to look at the tread pattern. As these tyres are intended for regular use on various road surfaces, you are to choose an appropriate tread pattern, which is suitable for use in off-road, snow and rain conditions as well.

We offer two types of tyres:

Winter tyres: There are two types of tyres — studded and studless. The tyres can be used at low temperatures. They are chosen by the drivers who want to stay safe on ice- and snow-covered roads.

All-season tyres: as a rule, they are chosen by the drivers who mainly drive in climates without any acute temperature changes.
