Winter Tyres: Tried & Tested

Winter tyres, or cold weather tyres as they are also known, will be the key to keeping Britain moving over the coming months. This is thanks to their specialist compound and tread design which provides drivers with superior grip and control in wet and dry conditions once the temperature dips below 7°C.

The cold weather conditions from two years ago look set to return with Forecasters predicting moderate to heavy snowfalls as early as October and November in parts of the UK.

This follows Met office data showing that the average temperature levels last year remained at below 7 °C for six months making cold weather tyres suitable for use from October – March.

The diagram below shows the difference winter tyres can make at just 20 mph.

 

 

With demand for cold weather tyres expected to be high, we recommend pre-ordering your set of winter tyres to avoid any delays in getting your tyres fitted and remaining safe on the roads.
