Why do you need winter tyres?
Driving conditions change when winter arrives, and so should the performance of our tyres. Winter tyres are made specifically for cold, wet and icy conditions, and offer better grip and handling than summer or all-season tyres.
Winter tyres or cold weather tyres are designed specifically for cold conditions and perform best in temperatures below 7°C.
They provide drivers with more control as they’re made with more natural rubber and an increased groove ratio which gives them better grip and allows for shorter stopping distances. The tread pattern of winter tyres can also disperse a greater amount of water, reducing the risk of aquaplaning.
Winter tyre laws in Europe
Several countries across Europe have legislation concerning winter tyres, meaning that if you’re planning to take your car abroad in the winter, you might be required to fit winter tyres. At the time of writing, the countries where winter tyres are mandatory include:
- Bosnia Herzegovina
- Czech Republic
In addition to this, although there are no laws that demand it, the authorities in countries including France, Italy, and Switzerland heavily recommend using winter tyres.
