Improve Your Safety

Only winter tyres are designed to excel in colder temperatures with rain, slush, ice and snow.

Winter tyres tackle cold weather’s challenges with improved compounds and enhanced design features. Using highly dispersible silica compounds resistant to hardening in low temperatures they ensure better grip by increasing the contact area on wintery and wet roads.

Asymmetric tread patterns on the outside provide improved snow handling and traction performance, with an inner tread design providing enhanced braking performance on snow, slush and wet roads.

Reinforced sidewalls and bead sections in combination with the tyre’s wider shoulder part provide a direct steering response as well as improved cornering grip and dry handling performance.

Standard 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.

Winter Tyres

Winter 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.

Winter Tyre Questions

Why buy winter tyres?

Answer: Winter 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.

Are winter tyres expensive?

Answer: No, Winter tyres are a very good investment. Whilst you are running your winter 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.

How many winter tyres should I buy?

Answer: 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 & winter tyre package, so you can easily swap your summer and winter tyres without incurring fitting costs each time.

How long will my winter tyres last?

Answer: Your Winter 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.

Will my insurance go up if I fit winter tyres?

Answer: No. The large majority of main insurers do not charge extra for fitting winter tyres at the correct time of year.
