Cold weather tyres have a different compound and tread pattern to give them extra grip in cold, wet and icy conditions. Summer tyres in the same conditions become harder, less ‘elastic’ and consequently suffer from reduced performance.
Braking tests at 19mph on an icy road have shown that a car equipped with cold weather tyres will stop a full eleven metres sooner than a car fitted with standard tyres.
With recent British winters experiencing some extreme conditions, plan ahead and don’t get stuck out in the cold this winter. Contact us to find out which winter tyre is right for your car.
