Summer tyres 225-45-R17 are designed for the summer months, when higher temperatures cause rubber compounds and air to behave differently. This size of tyre is designed for the people carrier, and thus isn’t built for the speeds of a high-performance car. Options differ in terms of technologies and designs, but typically focus on strong safety features like short braking distances and wet and dry handling, as well as comfort features like low noise. You will also find they tend to offer good fuel efficiency thanks to reduced rolling resistance. They fit popular people-carriers like the Ford Galaxy and larger passenger cars like the Honda Accord Euro.
Choosing the right summer tyres 225-45-R17
With the right axle size in your hand, you are ready to browse the range of summer tyres on offer. They are all designed to perform in the summer months, but your car and driving style will help you to prioritise the best features for you, as well as the types of conditions you typically drive in. You can choose between budget tyres, mid-tier tyres and premium tyres, and although the latter is generally the best all-round performer, the average motorist will find budget tyres, like Barum, that are perfectly good for their needs.
