  • universal type tyres;
  • tyres for travelling on highways;
  • tyres for driving on dirt and rough terrain.

  • low–profile: they are convenient for flat roads in the city, but unsuitable for off-road;
  • Run Flat tyres: for cars with tyre pressure control, allowing you to drive up to 150 km even on tyres that have received a puncture;
  • off–road: for rough terrain and clay trails.

The tyres are also distinguished by the tread pattern.
