Over the past few days there has been a nip in the air, which may have prompted the calls about winter tyres to start drifting like snowflakes into our National Sales Team office.
It is also a topic that has not slipped the attention of Honest John website team either, for they have noticed that September has seen the start of the winter tyres queries.
This is a taster of the topic trending in the Ask HJ section of the popular site: “Burleyite, who owns a Mercedes-Benz CLK with mixed front and rear tyre sizes, asks if there would be any drawbacks to changing to wheels and tyres of all one size for winter. HJ’s answer is succinct: “None. That would be the right thing to do.”
“When fitting winter tyres it’s sensible to have a full set of new wheels, and to save damage to expensive alloys the best approach is to pick steel wheels if possible. Dralle, a Touran owner, asks if smaller wheels from an older Touran will fit his car. HJ answers: “No reason why not. That part of the spec has not changed. Just make sure the bolts are compatible with the steel wheels.”
