If you are thinking about fitting winter tyres to your vehicle you should take a look at the November issue of Which? magazine.
It has carried out comprehensive tests, which reveal how winter tyres could help you travel more safely over the coming months – it also names etyres as a good place to buy your new winter tyres.
The report emphasises how you tyres make a greater contribution to car safety than any other component of the vehicle, especially on slippery roads, and that every acceleration, steering or braking force passes through the relatively small contact area they make with the ground.
The team tested winter tyres in two popular sizes to fit a range of cars and in summary, for a 14-inch wheel, the Continental ContiWinterContact TS850 secured the highest ‘Best Buy’ award with a 70% rating, with the Dunlop SP Winter Response 2 achieving 68% and the Michelin Alpin A4 attaining 66% in size 175/65 R14T.
Testing options for a 15-inch wheel, Which? reported that the ContiWinterContact TS850 was again the highest scored with 69%, while in the same 195/65 R15T size, the Bridgestone Blizzak LM001 achieved 66%.
There are alternatives to winter tyres, such as snow chains, snow socks and all-season tyres, which can help you enjoy a safer ride during the winter months, however Which? concludes: “For the safest car in cold conditions, there’s no substitute for winter tyres. Once the mercury sinks below 7C, their flexible compound and deep tread provide more grip than regular ‘summer’ tyres, even on dry asphalt.”
etyres Newcastle supply and fit a wide range of winter tyres to suit all vehicles and budgets, and our highly competitive prices are always low due to our Discount Promise which means you get £25 off if you buy four new tyres or a £10 discount if you order two or three tyres.
The supermarket fuel price war is good news for vehicle owners, because it is a great way we can cap our motoring expenses, but did you know you can also slash your petrol or diesel bill by making sure your tyres are properly inflated?
Not only do correctly inflated tyres improve safety and reduce the risk of having a dangerous blowout, they also help to make your car more fuel efficient so you end up paying less at the pumps.
The biggest problem is under-inflated tyres, because they have lower rolling resistance which means a bigger force or more energy is needed to make them turn. According to research, when tyres are under-inflated by just 20 per cent (around 6psi), 3 per cent more fuel is used because the engine has to work harder and more fuel is used.
Yet this can easily be corrected by checking your tyre pressure, a quick and easy job which should be done at least once a month or before a long journey.
The correct pressures for your vehicle can normally be found in your owner’s manual. The information may also be marked on the driver’s door pillar or on the inside of the petrol flap. In most cases, two different sets of pressures are given:
• For ‘normal’ driving conditions
• For a loaded vehicle (with extra people or heavy items on board)
To check your tyre inflation pressures you will need a tyre pressure gauge or you can use the machine found at most garages and petrol stations.
Tyre pressure must be checked when the tyres are cold, this means that you have driven less than two miles, otherwise you have to wait for about 10 minutes to let the tyres cool down.
