• Winter tyres will improve traction, grip and braking in slippery conditions.
        • They are designed to work in temperatures below 7°C
        • Their particular tread pattern means they will perform better in the wet reducing aquaplaning.
        • It is best to buy your winter tyres early in the season.
        • Manufacturers are now producing a hybrid all-season tyre as an alternative
        • You also have snow socks and snow chains for short-term use.
        • If you continue to use summer tyres, make sure the tread is at least 3mm across 75% of your tyre width, but definitely more than the legal requirement of 1.6mm.
