Why Change to Winter Tires? 
You will benefit from increased traction and shorter stopping distances by using winter tires. These benefits apply on slush, ice, and wet snow-covered roads. When the temperature dips below 7°C, your safety depends on having good-quality winter tires. 

 

 

1. Better Braking Distances 2. Improved Vehicle Cornering

 

On dry pavement, with temperatures just below freezing, the stopping distance for vehicles equipped with winter tires is 30% less than vehicles with all-season tires.

 

 

In a cornering comparison where both cars and SUVs had to make a 90-degree turn at 40 km/h, only the vehicles equipped with winter tires were able to complete the turn.

3. Better Traction 4. Decreased Aquaplaning Effect

Winter tires have better traction on a snowy surface at temperatures of -40°C than all-season tires have at +4°C.

 

 

 

Winter tires' tread design provides high-drainage capacity, which counters the danger of aquaplaning, which can occur when the road surface is wet or when there is standing water*.
