winter wheels

Winter wheels have many benefits and will help you prepare for the bad road conditions that cold weather brings. Although not compulsory here in the UK, it is usually cold enough to need them for around a third of the year, especially when it is below 7 degrees outside. It is highly recommended that drivers in remote areas invest in winter wheels and anybody driving in heavy rain or ice. Wheels that are specifically designed for winter use will improve grip and help your vehicle handle and corner better. This is possible because of the tyre compound that contains more natural rubber than standard options, keeping form even when the tyre gets cold. Stopping distance is also reduced, vitally important when the roads are wet or slippery.

Why buy winter wheels?

Just like summer wheels, there are plenty of designs to choose from that match your taste and because they are thinner, winter wheels tend to cost less. The changeover between seasons is quick and convenient as the whole process is possible at home, without having them mounted and balanced. As long as you have the space to store the other wheels and tyres, having a second set is a great investment. Not only are you better protected from corrosive grit and rock salt by fitting winter wheels, the life of your summer wheels is actually extended since you are not using them as often. More and more vehicles are now seen with winter wheels and it is easy to see why, especially when you consider the safety benefits.
