Winter tyres area relatively new phenomenon in the UK, as compared to many parts of Europe where you have to fit winter tyres by law.
The common misconception is that winter tyres can only be used during times of heavy snow or ice, when in fact they can be used during all types of poor weather (heavy rain, mud and slush) to give greater traction and better control.
Benefits of Winter Tyres
The rubber compound of a winter tyre is designed specifically to work in temperatures under 7 degrees C and below are the key benefits:
- improved performance, greater acauplaning resistance on wet and slushy roads
- shorter stopping distances on ice,snow and wet roads
- no loss of performance or comfort in normal conditions
- increased tyre life- if you choose to remove the tyres when temparatures rise and store for next winter you can get four winters out of them.
