Driving in winter conditions can prove to be more challenging and if the quality of your tyres are not suitable for the conditions then the likelihood of accident can increase. Winter conditions, including ice, snow and cold temperatures, reduces traction and can result in loss of vehicle control. Winter tyres are designed to restore majority of that control/traction in these conditions.
Winter tyres incorporate some unique features which make them indispensable on snowy road conditions. Snow tyres are made from a softer compound of rubber which do not become firm with a fall in temperature. These tyres also have deep grooves necessary for hydroplaning resistance and there are countless sipes present throughout the tyres’ body which help bite the snow better. Winter tyres are generally more expensive than their summer counterparts. However, it is paramount to use these tyres as they can prevent accidents in extreme weather conditions.
