Standard Tyres vs Snow Tyres
Standard tyres provide excellent traction in high temperatures and good weather conditions. As the temperatures and weather conditions deteriorate towards winter, the traction and performance of standard tyres start to fall.
Snow tyres provide more small tread areas, increasing traction on snow and in wet conditions, allowing better grip and water to escape from under the tyre more easily. It is highly beneficial to be on the correct type of tyre at the correct time of year.
Your Questions Answered:
Q: Why buy snow Tyres?
A:Snow tyres greatly improve your stopping distances and traction control in temperatures below 7°C. This will enable you to travel safely and at a reasonable speed in cold, wet, ice and snow conditions.
Q: Are snow tyres expensive?
A: No, snow tyres are a very good investment. Whilst you are running your snow tyres, you are saving tread in your summer tyres and pre-longing their life. By running the correct tyre throughout the year you are lowering the risk of damaging your vehicle and the potential costs.
Q: How many snow tyres should I buy?
A: We recommend a full set of 4. This will give you good all-round traction in temperatures below 7°C and preserve the life of your summer tyres. We also recommend buying a wheel & Snow tyre package, so you can easily swap your summer and snow tyres without incurring fitting costs each time.
Q: How long will my snow tyres last?
A: Your snow tyres will typically last as long as your summer tyres do, as long as you change them at the correct time of year. Depending on your milage they should typically last about 3 years and prelong the life of your summer tyres.
Q: Will my insurance go up if I fit Snow tyres?
A: No. The large majority of main insurers do not charge extra for fitting Snow tyres at the correct time of year.
Stopping Distances - Braking at 30mph
A car travelling at 30mph and fitted with snow tyres will stop in 35metres on a winters road while a car fitted with standard tyres will stop at around 43metres.
