Winter Tyres

Incidentally, North East Tyre Services has one of the most exhaustive collections of winter tyres in Durham. But before we get into that, let’s understand what makes winter tyres an absolute necessity when the mercury takes a nosedive.

Features of winter tyres

If you set a winter and summer tyre beside each other, you’ll immediately notice that they are vastly different in construction, materials and design. Winter tyres are optimised to provide stability and traction on snow covered roads. These tyres have some unique features which allow them to do so.

  1. Winter tyres are made from a softer compound of rubber. The softer rubber compound doesn’t let the tyres become stiff even in the harshest temperatures.
  2. The grooves are generally broader and deeper. It allows greater hydroplaning resistance necessary for icy roads.
  3. These tyres have countless sipes spread across the tyre body. Sipes help in biting the snow harder, allowing the tyres to generate greater traction.
  4. The contact patch of winter tyres is broader. It makes for better handling and cornering abilities.

All these features make snow car tyres in Spennymoor and County Durham an absolute necessity during the winter months.

At this point, it will be prudent to look at some of the best winter tyres that you can buy this season for the supreme performance of your car during the chilliest months of the year.
