Volvo XC90 Tyres
The Volvo XC90
The Volvo XC90 was one of Volvo’s biggest ever releases when it was unveiled at the 2002 Detroit Motor Show and immediately went onto win a number of industry awards.
The XC90 was one of the trailblazers in the new breed of road biased 4x4s. It combined all weather ability, great road manners, a brilliant driving position with fuel economy and comfort. These attributes, combined with the XC90’s seven seats, made it an instant hit with families. Testament to the models ageless design, over its twelve year lifespan – it only received minor tweaks, in 2007.
The second generation XC90 launched in 2015 cemented the SUV as Volvo’s flagship model. Readily taking on anything the German automotive giants can introduce in this segment, the new XC90 blends technology, efficiency, luxury and Scandinavian style to produce a well-rounded, premium SUV with unbeatable safety and family credentials.
Volvo XC90 Tyres
Heavy SUV’s like the XC90 demand strong, reliable and safe tyres which keep your vehicle planted and connected on the road, especially in wet weather conditions. SUV tyres also need to work well with your vehicles four wheel drive system – allowing you to take full advantage of the extra grip and safety of the XC90’s electric all-wheel drive system.
The tyres you choose are largely dependent on your personal driving preferences and requirements. In owning an immensely capable vehicle such as the XC90, these requirements can vary massively.
If your XC90 is used off road, then all terrain tyres are a strong contender for year round use, however if you predominantly use your XC90 as a motorway mile cruncher, then a road biased, economical tyre is the obvious choice. In the middle ground, sits all season tyres which bridge the gap between a summer tyre and a winter tyre.
Regardless of the type of driving you do, during the colder months, winter tyres should be fitted to increase not only grip in snow and ice, but also in wet weather. Winter tyres when fitted on all wheel drive cars truly, make an unbeatable combination.
Brands within our XC90 tyre range include: Pirelli, Bridgestone, Continental, Goodyear, Dunlop, and General Tire.
