Peace of mind when ordering your tyres
The Winter Activia SL6 provides exceptional performance in snowy conditions. To deliver this result, Nankang have designed the tyre to feature a directional tyre tread that was precisely designed to provide maximum steering response in snowy weathers.
In order to fight through winter conditions, the tread of the Winter Activia SL6 has been created with infrequent grooves cut into the tread - in order to prevent snow build up within the tyre.
To give additional guarantee to drivers, the Nankang Winter Activia SL6 has the Three Peak Mountain Snow Flake badge – this guarantees the tyre will perform exceptionally in difficult winter weathers.
What are winter tyres?
Winter tyres have been developed to perform best during the colder winter months - when the outside temperatures drop below 7 degrees Celsius.
How can I tell a winter tyre is suitable for winter weather?
The tyre features the EU sanctioned 3PMSF marking - Three Peak Mountain Snowflake:
This accolade was introduced to be an easily recognisable symbol which displays that the tyre has passed standardised, controlled, and, rigorous tests. It confirms the winter suitability of a tyre.
How does a winter tyre perform better in winter?
The compound of a winter tyre contains a higher natural rubber content - helping the tyre to remain flexible in freezing weather and conform to the road surface.
The grooves of winter tyres are typically wider to channel snow and water. The latest generation also have smaller shoulder grooves to improve snow and ice traction.
Can I use winter tyres all year round?
Although winter tyres can be used in other conditions, their performance will not be as efficient as they have been optimised to perform in temperatures under 7°C.
There is also a risk of a winter tyre’s wear rates increasing when drive on in warm temperatures, due to the high silica and natural rubber compound.
We recommend that winter tyres should be fitted as a full set of 4.
