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.

After many failed years of searching for a reliable genuine mechanic I finally found TSG Motors and I haven't looked back since, I would never take my car anywhere else. I was so pleased to find a genuine mechanic, Tony has a great deal of knowledge and makes you feel valued as a customer. All of the staff are extremely friendly and genuine and are by far the best mechanics around, they all do such an amazing job and I would highly recommend them to everyone!
