The Perfect Winter Tyre For Vans

PerformanceAlloys.com stock a full range of winter wheels and tyres for use in the cold and during winter. It is worth noting that winter wheels and tyres are not just for the use in winter, but are recommended when the temperature drops below 7’c. Winter tyres are much better on slush, ice, frost and even wet roads than standard summer tyres. You can see this from the tread pattern design on the tyre, compared to standard summer tyres. Any time the temperature drops below +7deg you’re better off on winter tyres due to the nature of the rubber compound.

Why Winter Wheels & Tyres ?

We recommending having a specific set of winter wheels in addition to your standard alloy wheels. This way, all you have to do is to swap your wheels over. When the winter weather starts you simply swap to your winter tyres until the spring (or when the weather improves). As you will not be driving on your winter wheels and tyres all year round you will be able to use the same winter wheels and tyres for many years.

Why Winter Wheels ?

Alloy wheels designed for the winter are normally a very smooth and an easy to clean design. They will be finished in one colour and will not have any polished areas which are susceptible to corrosion as well as small rivets or mutable spokes to trap dirt. Hence winter wheels are durable and easy to keep clean during the winter season.

Can I Use Winter Wheels & Snow Tyres All Year Round ?

Winter Tyres in The UK: Yes you can use winter tyres all year round in the UK. There would be a small difference in dry braking in really hot conditions, but this would be balanced with better braking in the wet and cold. Likewise the softer compound might wear more quickly in the summer, but this is balanced with better wear rates in the winter.

Continental’s Tyres for Snow Range

Did you know that you are six times more likely to have a prang in your car during the winter months? Slippery leaves on wet roads, followed by snow and ice, create hazardous winter driving conditions and increase accidents on the road by as much as 267%!

Last winter we saw the UK covered in a blanket of snow but it is not only during icy conditions that your tyres become unsafe. Why use winter tyres in the UK ? Normal tyres contain a rubber compound that can start to harden at temperatures below 7°C. This reduces grip on cold, damp or wet roads, meaning longer stopping distances. Continental’s winter tyres, however, contain a cold-resistant rubber compound, as well as a special tread pattern, designed to increase grip below 7°C and reduce braking distances.

With temperatures dipping below 7°C from October through to March, waiting for the first snowfall before switching to winter tyres may be too late. Using cold weather tyres throughout autumn and winter could help you avoid becoming another accident statistic.

Braking on Wet Roads from 62mph (100km/h) to Rest


 

Below 7°C braking distances are shorter on wet roads with winter tyres

Count the Cost of an Accident

Winter tyres are not just for snow and icy conditions, they also provide higher levels of road safety on cold, damp road surfaces. If you take into account how much an accident would cost you – insurance excess, recovery costs and lost time – it makes sense to invest in a set of winter tyres.
