It is best to buy your winter tyres early in the season, as when the bad weather arrives, you could find it hard to get to a tyre fitter due to the weather conditions. Also, even though availability is better now, the volume of tyres manufactured is still limited; Meaning tyre fitters don’t have an abundant supply of tyres to call on through the winter months. Once the stock has gone it has gone, tyre manufacturers are unlikely to manufacture any more until next winter.
