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.

Great garage and helpful staff and management. Also very honest, I just asked about a vibration on my 14 year old car. They were very honest and advised the price but also likely issues to follow. It was unfortunate information but in the long run beneficial and we will be bringing the new vehicle here.

Avoid at any cost! They over charge for parts and labour. They give me a long list of things to do to my car with a heavy price and said it's not road worthy. I took the car to a main dealer they said my car only needs one sensor and 2 tyre in the next 6 months possibly. AVOID THIS GARAGE AT ANY COST!
