Vans or Light Commercial Vehicles (LCV) are inherently different from both passenger cars and trucks. They sit comfortably in the middle. Hence, choosing a tyre for them can be tricky.
Many people use car tyres on their vans as well. That’s not a healthy practice. The duties of a van are entirely different from that of a passenger car. They are meant to be more robust and carry considerably heavier loads. Car tyres fall agonisingly short in serving those requirements. As a driver, you’ll notice the difference right away.
Vans are used mainly for commercial purposes like delivery of goods. They are expected to run long distances and carry heavy things. Therefore, it’s paramount that you fit them with the right tyres specifically designed for them.
You can find van tyres of all shapes and sizes on the shelves of Nil’s Tyre Services Blackburn. Moreover, our experienced technicians will be happy to help you in choosing the right ones depending on your van’s capacity and your requirements.
