Winter Tyres

In Ireland, we know that the weather can be ever changing and come winter, it can really start to cool down. When the roads get wet, icy and snowy – they obviously become much more dangerous. Things like slowing down and even steering can become much more difficult. Winter tyres have a different tread pattern which is designed to be much more efficient in icy conditions. The fact that they are also a softer tyre, means that are much more flexible and can adhere to the road much better. Call into one of our depots today, we will be more than happy to provide you with more information. You can even avail of a tyre health check when you are in!
