Tyre ABC

Winter tyres

Softer compound of rubber of winter tyres, comparing to compound of summer tyres, shows better performance in low temperatures. Winter tyres have special sipe (tread pattern elements) technologies, ensuring good steerability not only on the snow or ice, but also on wet winter roads. Tread pattern of summer tyres is not conformable to snow and ice, as a result breaking distance of a car increases. We do not recommend using all-season tyres in winter.

Between 1 December and 1 March, all vehicles with full weight not exceeding 3.5 tons, and sidecars thereof must be equipped with winter tyres!
