Winter Tyres

DP Tyres supply and fit a range of quality winter tyres at our workshop in Bryn, near Wigan.

What are winter tyres?

The main thing to point out is that winter tyres aren’t just for driving in snowy conditions. They’re designed to be used when temperatures fall below 7°C so they’re ideal for the wet and icy surfaces typical of British winters.

Is it worth having winter tyres?

Although our winters aren’t generally very extreme, there are arguments for having winter tyres on your car throughout the winter months.

Here are some reasons why:

  • They provide you with increased grip and stability because of the way that they are built with a special type of rubber which doesn’t harden in colder temperatures.
  • Substantially shorter stopping distances – if you’re driving at 20mph in wintry conditions with winter tyres, your stopping distance will be up to 11 metres less than if you were driving with standard tyres.
  • Less chance of aquaplaning – the tread pattern on winter tyres is developed so that water on the road surfaced is dispersed more effectively which reduces the chance of you aquaplaning.

If you decide to go for winter tyres, we can fit them for you at DP Tyres and would recommend having them on your vehicle from October through to March.
