Different tyres can be used in the cold winter months to make your vehicle safer to drive in adverse weather conditions. These tend to be larger and more sturdy, giving the car extra grip. In some parts of the world, winter tyres might even use chains for additional grip and purchase in icy road conditions. Winter tyres in the UK aren’t always necessary but they may help you to drive more safely and with more confidence in the cold. Now is a good time to buy them, before there is a rush – this tends to happen as the winter progresses, or if there is a sign of snow. Buy winter tyres and then store them in your garage until the winter. Ask a garage to help you choose the right type of tyre for your vehicle. This will depend on whether you have a front or rear wheel drive car.
