EV Tyres

You might think that any regular car tyre would be fine on an electric car and while you can use standard tyres, most EV manufacturers say that this actually reduces the vehicle’s range by a whopping 20%.

Why do electric vehicles need different tyres?

Although they might look the same from the outside, electric vehicles carry a lot more weight due to the heavy battery packs, up to 20, sometimes 30% more than standard fuel vehicles, and this weight is carried by the tyres. So, it’ll come as no surprise that the tyres you need for an EV have to be specially designed with greater weight-bearing properties.

The other main difference between standard and EV tyres is that EV tyres have noise-reduction qualities. With standard combustion engine vehicles, the noise of the engine cancels out any sound from the tyres but obviously with no noisy engine, the tyres on an electric vehicle would be significantly louder without the use of sound-reducing technology.
