The Continental WinterContact TS 860 tyre is currently in danger of being buried under an avalanche of praise and accolades.
Auto Express has just crowned it winner of its winter tyres test 2016/2017 and days earlier German motoring magazine Auto Bild described it as “an exemplary tyre without faults or flaws”.
Other winter tyres that have fared well after being put through extreme tests include Michelin Alpin 5, Goodyear UltraGrip 9, Dunlop Winter Sport 5, Pirelli Cintuarato Winter and Nokian WR D4.
Many etyres customers are starting to place orders for winter tyres or enquire about the benefits they offer, because October is the optimum month to fit them and get the maximum use and value for money from the investment.
Despite the last few relatively mild winters, forecasters are predicting harsh weather conditions this season and even if the snow does not materialise, winter tyres are proven to perform better than regular tyres once temperatures drop below 7C.
Winter tyres are not compulsory in the UK as they are in many European countries, however, new designs and advanced technology are making them an increasingly popular choice for many drivers, some of who choose to run on them all year round.
etyres supply and fit a wide range of winter tyres to suit all vehicles and budgets and its mobile tyre fitting service means customers can have them fitted at their home or work at a time that suits them, without the hassle of going to a garage or tyre depot.
