Winter Tyres

Winter tyres, or cold weather tyres as they are also known, will be the key to keeping Britain moving over the cold months. This is thanks to their specialist compound and tread design which provides drivers with superior grip and control in wet and dry conditions once the temperature dips below 7°C.

Cold weather conditions aren't just about snow and ice. For the last 50 years the UK’s mean temperature during winter months has consistently been 7°C or below.

Cold weather tyres feature a different compound & tread pattern to give them extra grip in cold, wet icy conditions. Summer tyres in the same conditions become harder& less ‘elastic’ reducing performance.
