As the weather gets colder, the roads get a whole lot wetter and icier. Here at West Way, we want our customers to be safe on the roads this winter, come rain, snow, ice or wind! Fitting winter tyres on your car will provide you with better grip, shorter stopping distances and most importantly, peace of mind when setting out on your journeys.
Although many people believe that winter tyres will only benefit them on snowy roads, they can also provide protection on road surfaces in any weather conditions under 7 degrees Celsius. This is because in cold conditions, a normal tyre’s tread will begin to harden and provide less grip.
Another benefit of fitting winter tyres on your car this winter is that they can also shorten your stopping distance considerably. A winter tyre’s stopping distance is over 10 metres shorter than that of a summer tyre on icy roads, and 8 metres shorter than a summer tyre’s stopping distance on snowy roads. This will make heading out on the roads in winter weather a lot safer.
We’re offering our winter tyres from just £35, so if you don’t want the weather conditions to affect your journey this winter, then contact your local West Way Service department and ask about winter tyres today or book online here.
