Head into Winter Well-Prepared: Mytyres.co.uk Advises Changing to Winter Tyres in Good Time. Soon it will be time for drivers to switch to winter tyres. Winter tyres are optimised for low temperatures, and offer clear advantages over summer tyres. In winter weather, the softer rubber mix in winter tyres increases grip on asphalt, as well as in wet and dry conditions, snow and ice. Several wave-shaped segments in the tread block increase the tyre’s gripping edge and improve its grip in snow and ice. This also has a positive effect on braking distance and driving stability – an important factor for improved safety in traffic.

“Winter weather really puts cars and drivers to the test. In many European countries there is no legal obligation to fit winter tyres, nevertheless it remains important to ensure that your tyres are best suited to the weather conditions, and that they contribute to safe, stable driving”, says Thierry Delesalle of Mytyres.co.uk. “The tread depth of your tyres is also crucial. If the tread depth is less than 4 mm, the performance of your tyres really suffers. Beyond this limit, you should change them without exception.” If you really want to make sure that your tyres are suitable for winter weather, look out for the M+S designation (mud and snow), and also for the snowflake symbol. These show that the tyres have proved their winter roadworthiness in standard test conditions.
