WINTER TYRES -- A NECESSARY EXPENSE ? ? ? ?

This year many people are wondering about winter tyres and asking the question are they worth the expense ?

Winter tyres are an additional expense that Irish drivers have never had reason to invest in, however due to the previous two winters many are at least considering their merit.

When temperatures drop below 7°C, summer tyres no longer provide optimum grip and performance since the blending of their rubber / silica compound hardens at lower temperatures. This impacts negatively on dynamic driving factors, such as acceleration, braking and handling. The solution is switching to winter tyres when temperatures drop below 7°C as they are made from a different rubber / silica compound and retain their flexibility and performance during the colder weather.

Not only can winter tyres help you to increase driving safety in the winter months, there is a potential cost benefit too. The new BMW and MINI winter wheels and tyres can result in as much as 40 per cent* better wear characteristics than summer tyres when the outside temperature is below 7°C -- meaning the tyres will last a lot longer.
