As well as most of today's vehicles, winter tyres have become a high-tech product. Ongoing development and optimisation in many areas (from traction to fuel consumption, from braking distance to noise), however, also show the respective limits and contrasts.
Our tyre specialists at Flaxley Tyres, therefore, recommend that the selection of new winter tyres should not only be adapted to your vehicle but also to the driving style and the most common field of application. We are happy to advise you on all the details.
From 7 degrees plus, winter tyres are the better choice
When autumn arrives or winter is already noticeable, it is time to prepare your vehicle for the cold months. From an external temperature of 7 degrees plus, the special rubber compound of winter tyres in conjunction with the cold road surface forms an optimally adhering connection. Upgrade to winter tyres on time - only real winter tyres are also designed for the exceptional road conditions and master even difficult situations at any time.
Snow brake comparison from 30 mph to a standstill - winter tyres vs summer tyres
The braking distances and the curve characteristics of summer tyres are significantly worse in the cold season than those of winter tyres. The measurements of the winter tyre specialists from Continental speak a clear language: Even at 30 mph, the braking distance of vehicles with summer tyres on snow is twice as long as compared to a car with winter tyres.
