What makes winter tyres so special?
The special features of the winter tyres are that they are oriented to low temperatures in the rubber mixture. This is achieved by the rubber mixture being designed such that it remains elastic even at low temperatures. In this way, optimum toothing and, therefore, force transmission between the tyre and the road surface can be ensured. In contrast to summer tyres, the tyre, which is is suitable for the winter, is also equipment with slats, in addition to the profile. These slats are very suitable for interlocking with a loose subsoil. For this purpose, the profile is equipped with as many gripping edges as possible.
How to use winter tyres correctly
If low temperatures, but dry weather conditions are present, tyre manufacturers recommendequipping cars with winter tyres and an increase in tyre pressure by 0.2 to 0.3 bar. This affects that the pressure increase in the tyre is lower than in the case of warmer temperatures. If, however, wet weather conditions are present, a lower tyre pressure is very favourable to the adhesion properties of the winter tyre. It is important to note that manufacturers should show a maximum speed for winter tyres.
