As winter draws in, inevitably the weather begins to change for the worst. The reducing cold temperatures and an increase in wet conditions can play a significant effect on the performance of your vehicle's tyres.
Now you might be thinking that Winter Tyres are only for the snow and icy conditions, however, did you know fitting winter tyres can help to reduce stopping distances and improve handling on wet roads too.
So what's the difference between Summer Tyre's and Winter Tyre's
Summer Tyres have a relatively hard compound, which means they soften in milder temperatures to provide lots of grip – the majority of the time.
Winter Tyres are made from a softer compound. That means they’re still soft enough to provide the grip you need in temperatures below 7oC. The tread patterns are also slightly different which can provide the vehicle with a better grip when driving in snow, wet or icy conditions.
