Winter Tyres

Wherever you are driving in the UK, as soon as the temperature falls below 7 degrees Celsius, you should change your car tyres. Those summer tyres will no longer be able to grip the road properly. Winter tyres are designed specifically keeping in mind the sleety and slippery road conditions that winter brings with it.

At Spa Tyres, we have a vast collection of winter tyres from such noted brands like Dunlop, Pirelli, and Goodyear. If you are looking for winter tyres in Leamington Spa, you have come to the right place. We sell tyres with all the frills that the manufacturers provide and at great prices.

Are winter tyres different?

As a matter of fact, yes, they are. Winter tyres are remarkably different from other tyres in many aspects. Some of the most important differences are mentioned below.

Winter tyres generally have a softer rubber construction with hydrophilic compounds. This construction ensures that you can use them safely even on the wettest roads where summer or all-season tyres would be worthless.

For added traction on such surfaces, the void ratio, measured from the gaps between the rubber, is significantly high. It is an important aspect, as the void ratio and traction rates are directly proportional to each other.

Winter tyres have something called a shoulder block, which is another effective aid in improving traction. A shoulder block is a highly specialised tread design that is found on the outside wall of the tyre tread.

Using snow car tyres with metal or ceramic studs also helps you attain high speeds on wet and slippery roads without necessarily increasing the chances of mishaps.
