Why should I buy winter tyres?
Winter tyres go a long way to taking the stress out of winter driving.
Winter tyres, also known as cold climate tyres are specially manufactured to give more grip and stability. Stopping distances are also dramatically improved.
It doesn’t matter if there’s snow on the ground, as soon as the temperatures drop if you want to be safe on the roads winter tyres are the answer.
Are they just for snow?
Some people still think that winter tyres are purely for driving in snow, this is definitely not the case.
When the temperature drops below 7°C winter tyres offer far more grip than summer tyres.
Winter tyres have a special compound of natural rubber and silica which maintains its flexibility even when the temperatures start to drop. Regular tyres become stiff and less efficient at gripping the road.
Winter tyres have deeper and specially designed tread patterns.
These patterns cut through the snow and ice, which give the tyre much improved contact with the road. They also have small ‘sipes’ cut into the tread which increase grip in snowy and icy conditions.
