It's Seasonal Swap Over Time
It's October! And while we're still clinging onto a few warm days and airing arms and legs in t-shirts and shorts (with rapidly diminishing frequency), it's just a few weeks until some potentially nasty cold weather is greeting us during travel times...
If you're already accustomed to making the seasonal switch from summer tyres to winter tyres then it's time to plan ahead and book us in during October. If the weather turns abruptly, it can get pretty busy very quickly!
If you've never considered using winter tyres and you rely on your vehicle for work/university/school run etc, then consider the benefits:
A cold weather tyre performs best at 7C and below. The design and composition of the tread and rubber means that unlike a summer tyre which hardens at lower temperatures, these tyres remain supple and grippy throughout. The tread blocks (sipes) act like a centipedes legs, forcing there way onto the road surface in wet /slushy and even in snowy conditions. Braking distances are massively improved, as is cornering stability. All very positive attributes for winter driving.
There's also now the uprise of the All Season tyre too. These tyres offer good year round capabilities - a kind of jack of all weathers - but master of none! A great option for the urban motorist who is unlikely to suffer serious extremes.
Whatever your winter motoring rubber requirements - call us for help and guidance. We're even prefered suppliers of the world-beating NOKIAN Wnter tyre range too. 08007839310
