About Winter Tyres
Do not let winter weather trip you up: get a set of winter tyres that can traverse the motorways even in the worst weather conditions. Motorists in the U.K. are much more likely to have an accident in the winter months. Winter tyres are designed for cold weather, typically 7 degrees Celsius and below. Although they do give you better control in snow and ice, these tyres also improve handling in just general wet weather and decrease your braking distance. Typically, winter tyres are made with more natural rubber, which is more resilient when the temperature drops and resists hardening. These tyres also offer more and deeper grooves than their summer counterparts, which give you more traction and, therefore, better handling. You should choose a set of four tyres. Do not mix them with summer tyres because the performance will be unpredictable at worst. You should also make sure the tyres are the right size for your vehicle. After they have been installed, check your air pressure regularly because cold weather and temperature fluctuations do affect the total pressure.
