Winter Tyres

winter tyres

Drastic weather conditions in the UK call for seasonal tyres changes. Hence, you have to use summer tyres between the mid-April to mid-October and winter tyres from mid-October to mid-April.

Winter tyres are generally recommendedfor temperatures going well below 7°C. These tyres are exceptional for driving over snow, ice, and mud. They provide the necessary grip and traction required for braking and handling on such road conditions.
