Cold Weather Tyres

Most UK cars are fitted with summer tyres, as there's currently no legal requirement to fit cold weather tyres during colder months. 
 
Cold weather tyres are designed specifically to remain supple when the temperatures drop to an average of less than 7 degrees they can help to maximise traction when driving on snow and ice. 
 
The key differences between cold weather tyres and summer tyres are: 
 
Cold weather tyres use a softer rubber compound (usually by including more natural rubber in the mix), which stays softer in low temperatures. 
 
The surface of the tread blocks is covered with small jagged slits -these are called sipes. They help to increase the tyre's surface area against the road and improve traction.
 
To more effectively displace water, cold weather tyres generally have deeper tread grooves than conventional summer tyres. The tread pattern is also designed to collect snow, further improving traction on snow and ice.
