If you intend fitting winter tyres, here are a few simple guidelines to help you get the most from your car and tyres
You may think that because it hardly ever snows where you live, winter tyres are a waste of time. Not so. winter tyres are designed to cope with all types of poor weather conditions, not just snow, giving you greater traction and roadholding on mud-covered roads, and through slush and ice.
What's more, their rubber compound is specially formulated for superior performance on wet roads, and during the winter there are plenty of those! Of course, if you do live in an area prone to heavy snowfall, Avon has winter tyres specifically designed to give maximum traction.
Many people in colder regions keep a spare set of wheels (usually steel ones; you don't want salt corroding your expensive alloys during the winter months) already mounted with winter tyres, swapping them over at the end of the autumn, keeping them on until spring.
Because Avon winter tyres are designed to perform well on dry roads, too, you should try some this winter, wherever you live. You never know when the weather could catch you out, and with Avon winter tyres you'll be well prepared for any eventuality.
