Most think winter tyres are only good for the occasions when the roads are covered in snow and ice but modern tyre development has meant that the latest products are a lot more versatile.
Between October & Easter, cold weather winter tyres show distinct safety advantages. On snow or ice-covered roads, cold weather tyres reduce the braking distance required as the rubber compound used in these tyres is of a higher proportion therefore minimising the hardening effect found at low temperatures. This allows the tyre to key into the road surface, resulting in higher grip levels which no summer tyre can match.
Maintenance is also very important during the winter months. Only well-maintained tyres perform fully and provide a comfortable ride. Tyres should be inspected regularly for cracks, cuts and bulges and every 4 weeks check the tyre pressure on a cold tyre to ensure optimum road contact.
