Welcome to Preston Tyre Bay
On our website and directly in our workshop in Preston, you will find a great variety of 4x4/SUV tyres for every purpose, season and budget.
On this page, we would like to give you a little overview of this particular type of tyres.
We divide summer tyres for four-wheel drive cars into street-terrain, all-terrain, and mud-terrain tyres. Street terrain tyres (80% road travel, 20% off-road driving) are marked with the symbols H / T and S / T. These tyres use asymmetric profiles. The second type of 4x4 tyre is intended for both the road and the terrain (50% road, 50% terrain). In this case, the abbreviations ATR, AT2, A / T or All-Terrain are indicated in the tyre designation. The last type of 4x4 summer tyres are tyres for difficult terrain (80% off-road and 20% off-road). The abbreviations MTR or M / T are given in the designation of these models.
For 4x4 winter tyres, this classification does not apply. Every 4x4 winter tyre is a street terrain tyre. This tyre division for four-wheel-drive cars offers drivers a wide choice, depending on the type of road. What distinguishes them from typical car tyres are good handling characteristics on trails with easy terrain character (forest and meadow routes) as well as on off-road tracks.
