What are winter tyres?
Most UK cars are fitted with summer tyres, and some with all-season tyres. But winter tyres are designed specifically to remain supple in colder temperatures and maximise traction when driving on snow and ice.
The key differences are:
they use a softer rubber compound (usually by including more natural rubber in the mix)
the surface of the tread blocks is covered with little jagged slits – called sipes
they generally have deeper tread grooves than conventional summer tyres.
