Read on to learn about the unique features and benefits of winter tyres Northampton
Winter tyres are made of softer rubber compounds with concentrated silica. This combination helps winter tyres to remain soft and supple in freezing temperatures. Furthermore, the flexibility of this rubber compound enables winter tyres to achieve a superior grip on slippery surfaces.
Winter tyres feature a unique tread pattern that allows them to make maximum contact while driving through snow, sleet and ice. Furthermore, it helps to accumulate snow within the tread blocks to enhance traction.
Sipes are one of the prominent features of winter tyres. Sipes are tiny slits or cuts on the tread blocks of winter tyres. These sipes bite into snow and ice-covered roads and grip the surface's irregularities magnificently, enabling the tyre to hold its place. The sipes also help to channelise water away from the tyres' path, ensuring increased safety while driving.
Winter tyres feature deeper grooves and sipes when compared to summer and all-season tyres and can trap snow to deliver increased traction.
