Winter tyres provide the perfect characteristics for driving on snow, ice and slush.
They differ from summer tyres mainly in two points: Tread and rubber compound. Winter tyres have many small tread cuts, also called sipes, which interlock with the ground and thus counteract slippage. However, the unique tread of winter tyres is not suitable for very wet surfaces. Furthermore, the rubber mixture contains more natural rubber than that of summer tyres.
This makes the tyres more elastic and ensures a better grip.
Most parts of the UK don't have to struggle with bigger snow loads, so many drivers think it is still ok to drive with summer tyres...until they slide across an icy road, end up in the hedges or bump into another car as couldn't get the vehicle to stop on time.
Please keep in mind, as soon as the temperatures drop down to 7 degrees; you should consider changing to winter tyres Redditch for your and other road users' safety.
