Winter Tyres Durham

Winter Tyres otherwise known as Snow tyres are the key to keeping you moving in the winter weather. In previous years people have ended up stranded in their homes or workplaces. Many companies during the winter weather suffer from loss of manpower with people being unable to make the journey into work.

How can Winter Tyres help?

Winter tyres have a different technology to that of summer tyres. When the temperature drops below 7 degrees celsius. The snow tyres hold the road better, this gives your vehicle a lot more grip and handling on the road. They are made to help give that better grip and traction in the snow.

When we start to experience heavy falls of snow, 4 x 4 sales can often increase. Winter tyres are a long way cheaper than investing in a 4 x 4 to survive the winter months. Furthermore, many 4 x 4 drivers come to us for Snow tyres to help them through the winter. Therefore your first port of call should be to look into some snow tyres, before investing a lot of money on changing your vehicle.

Benefits of Winter Tyres

Summer tyres are not designed for use in really cold temperatures. They are much less effective on the road surfaces in ice and snow. Winter tyres are made with a special rubber, this is suited more to the winter temperatures, unlike summer tyres, winter tyres do not harden in the cold, this in turn helps with their performance as well as their grip on the road.

Our range

We have a fantastic range currently in stock of new winter tyres and part worn tyres which have been sourced from Germany for their quality. Although we try to always keep good levels of stock in through the winter period, once the snow and ice arrives demand gets much higher. Therefore our advise is to change over to winter tyres around October time to ensure your tyres are safe for the winter months ahead.
