Winter tyres, more accurately called “cold weather” tyres;
Feature a snowflake symbol on the side, and are made from a softer compound.
That means they’re still soft enough to provide the grip you need in temperatures below 7oC.
They also have a different tread pattern, with fine grooves or “sipes” cut into each tread block that bite into the snow better.
Not only do winter tyres reduce stopping distances in snow and ice, but also in wet weather below 7oC.
What’s more, they help with cornering performance,
enabling you to turn the car in circumstances where you might otherwise skid straight on.

Fantastic efficient service. Sorted my sons car out when he had a flat tyre and there was nowhere locally to get it repaired since it was after 6 p.m. and the tyre inflation kit was useless. Out of hours call out and new tyre required plus the garage he’d bought the car from had given him wrong wheel stud locking nut but they managed to fit tyre and got him mobile and at a reasonable cost. Thank you.

Had a chunk of rubber gouged out of a front tyre and telephoned T.Elsey tyres. We were told we could go straight there and get a new tyre. The service was quick and efficient. Definitely use them again
