Winter Tyres

What can winter tyres do for you?

In temperatures below 7°C (45°F) the compound and rubber of a summer tyre begins to harden. A winter tyre is constructed with a different type of rubber compound – containing a higher percentage of silica – this means tyre is able to remain flexible and therefore performing better in lower temperatures. It’s not only on snow and ice though, once the thermometer dips beneath the 7°C (45 °F) mark, winter tyres can provide you with reduced braking in wet conditions and reduce the risk of aquaplaning when the snow begins to thaw.

Why choose Winter Tyres?

ENHANCED PERFORMANCE

 

The technology in a winter tyre means it performs better when the temperature drops below 7° Celsius

 

BETTER GRIP

 

The special compound used in a winter tyre means it remains softer in low temperatures offering more grip, better braking, traction and handling.

 

GREATER CONTROL AND SAFETY

 

The tread design of a winter tyre has been specially created to offer better grip and traction in the snow.

 

SPEED RATING

 

Cold weather tyres have a lower speed rating than a summer tyre due to the compound they are made from. Please be aware that your driving will not be compromised as even an H rated tyre has a maximum speed of 131mph.
