With the arrival of monsoon, we upgrade our rain gear with the latest waterproof covers, stylish rainwear, fancy umbrellas and more. For those who commute often, these items are critical.
But just the way we look after our personal essentials, are we taking proper care of our cars in the rains, as well? This is exactly the season and reason to ‘suit-up’ your car to ensure safe and smooth drives on slippery monsoon roads.
To do this, you must focus on the basics:
- Get a complete professional car service done, ideally before the monsoons. This will ensure that your car is well-oiled and well equipped to roll.
- After your vehicle has passed the first test, move on to the tyres. The health of the tyres is crucial to your safety on the roads.
- Remember, monsoons make roads slippery. Most of us forget to check our tyres' condition before the monsoon. This could result in mishaps like skidding or loss of vehicle control. So ensure that your tyres have a superior wet grip.
Bear in mind that a small patch of the tyre is always in contact with the road's surface. This means that the tyre should always be in top-notch condition, especially in humid or wet weather, to guarantee sufficient grip and safety.
If your tyre struggles to grip on to the roads and responds sluggishly to the brakes, it's time to say hello to a new set of tyres. An ideal monsoon tyre comprises the following features:
- excellent water channeling
- superior wet grip, and
- maximum traction.
CEAT has combined these ingredients to create the best and durable tyres that shall prove to be reliable monsoon companions for your vehicle. Read on to learn more about our special SUV and car tyres for rain.
