In the UK there is currently no legal obligation to use winter tyres.
But more and more road users in the UK are starting to use winter tyres – simple reason:
WINTER TYRES ARE SAFER!
Experts recommend, as soon as the temperatures drop down to +7 degrees Celsius, winter tyres should be mounted, even if there is no snow in your region.
There are good reasons why so many other countries have made winter tyres a legal requirement.
Once the temperatures drop, the material of summer tyres hardens and the tyres are no longer flexible – that means, the road grip becomes less and the braking behaviour changes dramatically. Also, the profile patterns of winter tyres are different compared to summer tyres. The special winter profile provides extra road grip.
