Delticom AG/Eiretyres.com, Hanover – 24.10.2016. When autumn arrives and temperatures start to drop, it’s time for drivers to switch to winter tyres. At average temperatures below seven degrees Celsius, they offer better grip than summer tyres, and thus improve road safety. It’s not for nothing that many European countries require adequate winter tyres by law. But winter tyres don’t just show their strengths in wet, snowy and icy conditions. The softer rubber mix used in winter tyres also ensures improved grip on dry roads. Wider tread grooves and, above all, lots of (usually zig-zag) sipes reduce the risk of the car slipping on snow, mud, or ice. In addition, winter tyres are designed to reduce the risk of aquaplaning on wet roads, thanks to improved water displacement.
“The arguments in favour of winter tyres aren’t limited to snow and ice. They also show off their advantages in regions where winter is characterised by lower temperatures and increased rainfall”, says Thierry Delesalle of Mytyres.co.uk. “The age, wear, and tread depth of the tyre are decisive in this”, advises Delesalle: “Winter tyres should be replaced at least every four years. Even if they haven’t done much mileage, the rubber hardens and the grip deteriorates. The tread depth is also important, of course. Regardless of the legal minimum, winter tyres shouldn’t have a tread depth of less than four millimetres.”
