Winter tyres are designed to offer optimum traction and grip in cold conditions. They have a softer compound, along with deeper grooves and narrow cuts – called sipes – built into the tread. These features help disperse water/snow, and allow the rubber to move around – improving contact with the road.
Winter tyres work best when temperatures drop below 7c
By having a complete set of wheels, TPMS sensors and proper winter tyres, changing to your winter setup is so much quicker, easier and has less chance of damaging your Summer alloys.
