Winter tire guide

What are the benefits of winter tires?

First of all, at temperatures below 7 degrees, they offer more safety in both cornering and braking. With these tires it is even possible to drive on roads that are snow-covered or icy without major problems. Of course you should still drive more carefully than usual, but the winter tires Once again, it helps a lot to get more grip on slippery roads due to snow, ice etc. This is also due to the special rubber compound of natural rubber, which is much more elastic than at summer tires, This special rubber compound also prevents hardening when exposed to cold. In this way, the perfect adhesion remains even in cold weather. Another plus in the winter tires This is because these tires are equipped with a special toothing, so that even on loose snow a perfect grip is given.

Furthermore, these offer winter tires also a much better Aqua Planing protection. Since the tires have a highly laminated tread contour and thus a lot of gripping edges, a perfect traction is given. Furthermore, the water from the footprint is dissipated very quickly. Particularly noteworthy is also an optimal acceleration. If you are traveling with the wrong tires, you can expect that an acceleration deficit of up to 80% occurs.

What are the disadvantages of winter tires?

The most obvious disadvantage is that you can only use these special tires for a limited time.

What should you do winter tires note?

Care should be taken that at the winter tires a minimum profile depth of 1.6 mm is maintained. Furthermore, the storage of winter tires is very important. Before the winter tires are stored, it is recommended that the tire pressure be increased by 0.5 bar. It is also important that the tires are accurately labeled so that you can know after the summer where to put the tires. Care must be taken that the winter tires are stored cool, dark and dry.

It is also important that all four tires are always replaced and replaced with four winter tires. Otherwise, there is a risk that there is no sufficient liability.

When buying winter tires, care should be taken that these tires are marked „M + S“ (mud and snow), the only way to be sure that they are really winter tires. At the same time, the tires should also be provided with a snowflake symbol. Particularly recommended are models from Continental and Dunlop. These brands are regularly comparison winners in corresponding tests of ADAC and GTÜ / ACE.

When can I use the winter tires?

The winter tires are suitable for the cold season (temperatures below 7 degrees). The saying goes „from October to Easter,“ as it is expected to reach such low temperatures during this period. It is important to ensure that the winter tires are not used in the summer. Since the winter tires contain a different rubber compound and are therefore softer, these tires wear faster in hot and hot weather and affect safety, as the braking distance is extended.

Another little tip in terms of driving safety: Although the safety increases due to the special winter tires, it is recommended that you still driving ahead.
