Winter tyres, more accurately called “cold weather” tyres;
Feature a snowflake symbol on the side, and are made from a softer compound.
That means they’re still soft enough to provide the grip you need in temperatures below 7oC.
They also have a different tread pattern, with fine grooves or “sipes” cut into each tread block that bite into the snow better.
Not only do winter tyres reduce stopping distances in snow and ice, but also in wet weather below 7oC.
What’s more, they help with cornering performance,
enabling you to turn the car in circumstances where you might otherwise skid straight on.

I used this company for the first time, and this was to have two tyres fitted that I had purchased through Asda tyres.
Their service was great and very professional, even put some copper paste on the wheel hubs as they had corroded a little bit, making them difficult to remove. They torqued up all the wheel nuts, which is always reassuring!
I would definitely recommend this company and use them again myself.
