During the colder months, especially when the temperature dips below 7 °C, your standard tyres become less effective and can harden, compromising both grip and braking effectiveness.
Winter tyres are specially made so that they have enhanced grip during lower temperatures. They improve your cars’ performance, efficiency and overall safety, even when the winter weather is at its most severe.
Want to see for yourself how they work? We compare winter tyres to standard tyres, and the difference is incredible.
The open tread block design of winter tyres helps to dissipate standing water, which reduces the risk of skidding and aquaplaning.
Winter tyres have an optimised blend of rubber and silica compound, resulting in improved grip.
Winter tyres offer you more control on icy, wet and untreated roads. Braking distances are shortened by up to 20% in icy conditions and 10% in wet conditions.
