Below 7°C the rubber compound in all summer tyres hardens, causing a drop in performance and an increase in braking distance by up to 12%. The average winter temperature in the North and North East of Scotland is approximately 0°C, most likely even lower during commuting hours. Therefore, you may want to consider switching to winter tyres over the next few weeks to ensure they are giving you the best possible grip come rain, ice or snow. Choosing the right tyres for the job will give you greater control and confidence with a 50 per cent shorter braking distance in cold conditions. And it’ll keep your tread intact much longer.
