How winter tyres can increase my safety

Driving in the winter months

We care about your way of life and want you to enjoy a safe and secure journey whatever the weather. Through the winter months, cold temperatures, packed snow and icy patches can have a real impact on the traction and grip of your standard tyres. 

Winter tyres really work

When temperatures drop below 7oC, standard tyres harden and lose flexibility, this can affect braking, accelerating and cornering. Winter tyres are carefully designed to handle wintery conditions, giving you maximum grip, increased traction and greater control

Winter tyres are not just snow tyres

Winter tyres are not only important in snow. The tread patterns are designed to absorb moisture, and the rubber compound is adapted to greatly improve braking and traction in cold, wet, icy and snowy conditions.

Avoiding other drivers

Studies show that winter tyres can have a real impact on reducing accidents in bad weather; a good quality winter tyre can improve braking by up to 25% and collision avoidance by 38%*. So the drive is safer for everyone on the road.

Winter tyres mean peace of mind

No matter how many electronic driver aids your car is fitted with, the ability to maintain grip is determined by your tyres. The expense of outfitting your vehicle with winter tyres is nothing compared to the reassurance of protecting the core stability of your vehicle

Easier journeys wherever you travel

Different countries have different winter safety specifications and, in some countries, winter tyres can be a compulsory requirement. You should always take care to check regulations before driving in the EU throughout the winter months.
