Winter Tyres

Summer VS Winter tyres - Warm weather performance
There's no arguing that winter tyres offer more grip than summer in temperatures below 7c, and that below 0c that performance gap is even wider, but how do winter tyres perform when the sun is out and the temperature is high?
To answer this we've used an All Season tyre test which was conducted during the summer months. Primarily an all season tyre test, we've included a summer and winter tyre for comparative purposes.

The results
Unsurprisingly the summer tyres won the dry and wet tests, but the winter tyre averaged just over 10% behind it's summer counter part which is closer than expected. During the snow test, the summer tyre had less than 50% of the grip.
The all season tyre had similar properties to the winter tyre, offering a little more grip in the dry and wet, and a little less grip in the snow. 
Our advice? If you commute during the winter and rely on your car to get to work, winter tyres will give superior grip on cold mornings without sacrificing more than 10% of summer tyre performance during the odd freak warm day.

Here are two videos outlining the differnece between summer and winter tyres in teperatures below 7c. Feel free to contact us for further information. 01643 707788
