Winter tyres, as the name suggests, are suitable for the colder part of the year, especially when the temperature drops below 7°C. It is recommended to use winter tyres in Derby from November to March to enhance your vehicle’s performance.
If you are looking for a set of winter tyres Derby, we have an extensive range of products for you at Trackside Auto Centre. We stock tyres from most of the world-renowned brands like Bridgestone, Dunlop, Pirelli, Continental, Michelin, and more.
Using summer tyres during winters is not advisable as the former are made of a harder rubber compound. This compound hardens even further during cold weather, leading to the loss of traction.
On the other hand, winter tyres are made of high natural rubber that keeps them soft when temperatures drop. Thus, they can easily grip on snow, mud, slush, and water during winters.
Winter car tyres Derby have a large number of sipes that prevent snow build-up and offer protection against hydroplaning.
Some of the most sought-after winter car tyres at our workshop are listed below –
The WinterContact TS 860 from Continental is an Auto Express’ 2018 Winter Tyre test winner. It is a passenger car tyre with the following technologies –
Bridgestone’s Blizzak LM005 is also an award-winning tyre. If you are looking to buy winter car tyres Derby for your SUV (or passenger car), this model is the one to go for.
The tyre comes with high-density 2D and 3D sipes that grip snow exceptionally and also decreases braking distance on icy or snowy surfaces. Its NanoPro-Tech compound has a silica coating that improves handling performance on wet roads. With deeper grooves designed in a zig-zag pattern, the Blizzak LM005 can drain slush and water quickly to eliminate aquaplaning.
The Pilot Alpin PA4 is one of the best winner tyres Derby from Michelin and a favourite among our clients.
It’s manufactured with the 3rd generation of the Helio compound rubber, a mix of sunflower oil and silica. This innovative compound delivers superior grip on winter road conditions. The tyre also comes with the StabiliGrip technology that places 3D sipes at variable angles all throughout. The result is reduced aquaplaning and higher steering response.
