Overview: All Season & Winter Tyres

In temperatures below 7°C the compound and rubber in a summer tyre begins to harden. Winter tyres, and all season tyres, are constructed with a different type of rubber compound - containing a higher percentage of silica and natural rubber. This allows winter tyres to remain flexible and perform better in lower temperatures.

Winter Tyres

Greater Control

The tread design of winter tyres has been specially created to offer better grip and traction in the snow.

All-weather Tyres

Better Grip

The special compound in winter tyres allows it to remains softer in low temperatures - offering more grip, better braking and precise handling.

Winter Tyres

Enhanced Performance

Technology in winter tyres means it performs better when the temperature drops below 7° Celsius.

What is right for you?

Your guide to the general differences between the tyres:

Summer Tyres

• Optimum from Spring through to Autumn. When the average temperature is above 7 degrees Celsius
• Typically use a softer rubber compound – designed for good grip and traction when driving on dry and wet roads.
• Specialised tread patterns with shallower tread depths to focus on improved precision on the road, for improved handling in cornering and control at high speeds.

Winter Tyres

• Performs best during the winter months, when the temperature drops below 7 degrees Celsius.
• Compound 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.

All-weather Tyres

• Designed to cope with all sorts of conditions - good performance delivered throughout the year
• Moderate natural rubber content to stop the tyre hardening in temperatures below 7 degrees Celsius – enhancing grip
• Designed with moderate tread depths that have been engineered to help deliver a longer tread life than many summer tyres

Benefits and Advantages

It's not only on snow and ice that winter tyres come into their own. Once the thermometer drops lower than 7°C, all season and winter tyres provide you with reduced braking in wet conditions and lessen the risk of aquaplaning - when the snow begins to thaw. Watch them in action:
