Winter Tyres

Winter comes with its own unique set of challenges. The cold climate makes everything tougher. Fog blankets the city of Easington, and often we find that our car tyres are struggling to gain an adequate grip on the ice-covered roads.

So, what is the solution?

Simple, visit us at Easington Service Station and let us install a set of brand new snow car tyres in your vehicle. These tyres are tailor-made to tackle temperatures below 7°C and will provide adequate road grip even if the road is under thick snow.

When should you install winter tyres in your car?

Ideally, you should fit winter tyres in Easington before the temperature starts to drop. For the first few months, water molecules can form ice crystal covering the road surface, this will reduce the gripping power of your car tyres, and that can end up in an unpleasant accident. That’s why experts always suggest changing the tyres at the beginning of winter.

However, you might face difficulties while selecting a product. Our first-time customers often get confused while browsing through our inventory. Amongst brands like Dunlop, Goodyear, Michelin, Pirelli, Nexen, Continental etc.- which product to buy?

Well, we have a team of experts who will assist you to pick the best winter tyres in Easington. They will look into factors like your driving style, how far you commute every day, which car you drive, and your budget to select the best products from our vast collection.

On top of that, you should know and look for a few important things yourself while choosing new tyres. Let’s take a look at the essentials.

  • Check the tyre material – Winter tyres are generally made of natural rubber. It stays softer even when the temperature is freezing. Choose a product that has a low concentration of artificial rubber.
  • Winter tyres are rated – If you look at the sidewall of a winter tyre, you will see that there is an M+S or M.S. embossed on it. It is a proof mark that shows its capability to handle snowy roads.
  • Look at the treads – Another key feature of winter tyres is their aggressive tread pattern. This cuts through the snow and helps to remove snow building up between the grooves themselves. It also helps to reduce stopping distance while you are driving.

That summarises all the important things that you should consider while buying snow car tyres.
