Winter Tyre

What are Winter Tyres?

"Winter tyres" are tyres specifically designed for use in cold weather and offer many performance benefits over regular tyres in those conditions. Winter tyres aren't just for snow – they help in all conditions when the temperature is below 7°C. They decrease braking distances in icy, wet and snowy conditions and offer extra grip to keep your car handling smoothly and safely.

How Do Winter Tyres Work?

Winter Tyres, sometimes also known as cold weather tyres, have a different rubber compound than ordinary tyres and are designed to be more flexible at lower temperatures. In addition to this, the tread has more grooves which helps with water and snow clearance, offering more grip.

What are Snow Socks?

Snow Sock

Snow socks give you extra grip in the snowy and icy conditions. They are made from a special fabric that grips the road and are quicker to fit than snow chains. They are easily stored in the boot of your car in case of a sudden snow storm and they just slip on and off when you need them.
