Winter tyres - take care of them on time!
Change on time and drive safely through autumn, winter and spring.
The statistics show: Many road traffic accidents in the UK are caused solely by driving season tyres in the wrong season. But not because the tyre change is deliberately omitted, but often because drivers are underestimating foliage, wetness and cold temperatures from 7 degrees and colder. As a car- and tyre expert, we, therefore, recommend: Take care on time and drive safely from autumn with good quality Winter tyres.
Since there is no official period for the use of winter tyres, for maximum safety it is recommended October to April (around Easter time). During this period of time, winter tyres are ideal for longer braking distances and slides due to wetness, mud and foliage. Because even at temperatures from 7 degrees and colder, the material Summer tyres are made of gets harder and loses adhesion. Winter tyres, on the other hand, are made of a softer rubber compound with additional grooves, so there is a minimal risk even in cold temperatures.
Facts about winter tyres:
Also, be aware of the following: Do not use tyres older than 6 years as the material has become brittle. Tyres with less than 3mm tread are no longer suitable for safe winter use.
Tyres should always be stored in dry and dark rooms.
