Winter tyre & Seasonal Tyres
Specific Tyres for Cold Weather – Necessary Road Safety forWinter
Though in so many other countries in Europe drivers commonly switch to the winter tyres when winter season sets in, the drivers in UK show some reluctance in getting winter tyres fitted in their vehicles.
In addition, quite dissimilar to so many countries, it’s not required by the law in UK to make use of winter tyres. If winter tyres aren’t used, it can result in road accidents’ chances increasing dramatically while reducing the driving safety–particularly if winter is harsh like what we’ve experienced most recently. Many of the drivers are found unwilling when it comes to switching to the winter tyres and hey believe that these tyres are just effective for ice or snow covered roads. It is, however, also admitted that in winters UK does not receive so much of snow as other countries in Europe do. Winter tyres, however, aren’t just useful on the icy and snowy roads any longer.
Advancements in design of the tread pattern and the contemporary rubber compound technology makes sure that the winter tyrestend to offer higher road safety levels on cold and damp surfaces.
Hence, winter tyres are often recommended to be used from the start of November till the end of march for increasing the grip of your vehicle in winter season. It is necessary for the winter tyresto be in really excellent condition, because the worn out tyreswill not prove to be effective on the damp, icy or snowy surfaces.
Why Winter Tyres Are Necessary?
It can’t be expected by the tyres to offer best performance when temperature in between +30 Celsius and -15 Celsius. Under 7 Celsius, Winter tyres can be the best choice. In the United Kingdom, it means between October to April (and most of summer arguably)! Start to use winter tyresin October or in November because wet and damp road conditions can potentially be equally hazardous like the snowy roads.
On wet and damp roads braking distance, normally, is substantially longer. With the use of winter tyres this braking distance can be reduced to a great extent.When the temperature falls below 7 Celsius, molecules of tread rubber get hardened and the freeze eventually making the tyres very less adaptable for road surfaces and hence reducing the grip levels a great deal.
The advanced technologies used in manufacturing winter tyres make sure that such hardening effect can be minimized at low temperaturesand, hence, increase the grip levels.
It is necessary that you should regularly check the tread depth. When there is a decrease in tread depth, there is an increase in braking distances. To ensure maximum safety and effectiveness, it should be ensured that the winter tyres are maintained in really excellent condition.
On icy and wet road surfaces there are always a higher number of road accidents. Using winter tyres can ensure greater safety levels and accidents caused by the damp surfaces can be significantly reduced.
If you have any plans of traveling to Europe in winter holidays, it is highly recommended by Part worn tyres LTD for you to fit the new tyres specifically designed to be used in winter season. The law of many countries in Europe has made it a requirement to make use of season-specific tyres. Furthermore, the weather conditions in winter may be increasingly harsher in this continent.
