Did You Know – Winter Tires Extend the Life of Your All-Season Tires?

Whether you have all-season or M+S tires, having a set of winter tires will extend the life of BOTH sets of tires by around double – depending on when you switch them over each year, and how many kilometres you put on your vehicle.

Winter tires are made to grip the road. This is based on their tread and ability to stop 25% better in snowy conditions, and the ability to withstand temperatures below 7 degrees C.
