Winter Tyres UK
Although they are widely used on the continent, winter tyres in the UK are often overlooked. However, with winter conditions appearing to grow more hazardous each year, drivers would certainly be well advised to consider investing in a set of dedicated winter tyres for use in adverse conditions.
Many people in the UK think that winter tyres are only needed in deep snow or on severely icy roads. While such tyres certainly prove their worth in these conditions, they actually provide substantial benefits whenever the temperature drops below 7 degrees centigrade.
In cold weather, standard tyres harden and become stiffer, and have a tendency to skim over the top of the road surface, even when ice isn't present. Winter tyres, on the other hand, are made from a different blend of materials, which allows their surface to remain pliable enough to "mesh in" with slight irregularities in the road surface and maintain a better grip.
Not only do winter tyres make driving in cold conditions much safer, they also help your car to perform more efficiently throughout the winter months, which helps to cut fuel costs in the longer term.
If you're not convinced about just how much difference driving with winter tyres can make, watch this recent winter tyre test from Goodyear featuring the UltraGrip 8, you'll be amazed.
