Winter Tyres – Tyre Safety Month 2019
So… here we are… winter is upon us again! With the start of winter comes colder temperatures, darker nights and more importantly… TYRE SAFETY MONTH!
We recently posted about the benefits of having All Season tyres fitted to your work vehicles, this time we're here to make you aware of the benefits of WINTER TYRES.
We've all seen the news, the UK is being threatened with warnings of the coldest winter yet! Another 'Beast from the East' is set to hit Britain with the apparent "coldest winter in 30 years", it has been forecast to be an average of 3.9 degrees Celsius for January and February 2020 in England which definitely rings warning bells for winter tyres.
When temperatures start to drop below 7 degrees Celsius the performance of your summer tyres considerably worsens, so much so that winter tyres are compulsory in some countries across Europe. Winter tyres have a different tread pattern and compound to regular summer tyres, giving them the extra grip and shorter braking distances needed in icy conditions.
The first thought that might come to mind when you think about winter tyres is "Is it worth the expense?", the answer is yes! Once you purchase a set of winter tyres this is not something that necessarily has to occur every year, depending on your mileage and how well you look after your tyres this set may last you year after year! At Hometyre we offer a service to swap over your summer and winter tyres seasonally. Sometimes we are even able to store your winter/summer tyres for you whilst you're running on the other set.
For more information on winter tyres to suit your vehicle or a summer to winter swap-over, just give us a call on 0333 444 5454! We can help you pick the right tyres for your car and get you booked in at your preferred address to a specific date or time to get you on the road to a safe winter!
