Winter tyres Pemberton Wigan 01942 217800 Winter tyres, or cold weather tyres as they are also know, will be the key to keeping Britain moving this year with their specialist compound and tread offering drivers better grip and control in wet and dry conditions when temperatures dip below 7°C.
The cold weather conditions of the last two years look set to continue with Forecasterspredicting moderate to heavy snowfalls as early as October or November in certain parts of the UK.
This follows Met office data showing that the average temperature levels last year remained at below 7 °C for six months making cold weather tyres suitable for use from October – March.
With demand for cold weather tyres expected to be high, Wheelquick is recommending early adoption to avoid any delays in getting your tyres fitted and remaining safe on the roads.
Why choose winter tyres?
- Enhanced performance – the technology in a winter tyre means it performs better when the temperature drops below 7° celcius
- Better grip – the special compound used in a winter tyre means it remains softer in low temperatures offering more grip, better braking, traction and handling
- Greater control and safety – the tread design of a winter tyre has been specially created to offer better grip and traction in the snow
- Speed rating – cold weather tyres have a lower speed rating than a summer tyre due to the compound they are made from. Please be aware that your driving will not be compromised as even an H rated tyre has a maximum speed of 131mph
