• 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.
• 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
• 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.
Technology in winter tyres means it performs better when the temperature drops below 7° Celsius.
The special compound in winter tyres allows it to remains softer in low temperatures - offering more grip, better braking and precise handling.
The tread design of winter tyres has been specially created to offer better grip and traction in the snow.
