How do winter tyres work?
Visually you will only notice a slight difference within the tread of winter tyres compared to summer tyres. This is because they have an increased number of blocks, channels and sipes, which enhance grip on the road surface in wet and icy conditions. Winter tyres also have an optimised blend of rubber and silica compound, so grip and propulsion are significantly improved in winter.
- Increased number of sipes cut into tread pattern
- Open tread blocks to dissipate standing water
- Increased number of tread blocks
- Winter-optimised blend of rubber and silica compound
