Vauxhall winter tyres
Having winter tyres fitted to your Vauxhall could make the difference between braking in time and being involved in an accident. Although you may think that winter tyres are just for driving on the snow the benefits can be seen as soon as the average temperature drops below seven degrees. At these temperatures you will notice the difference in handling capabilities of the car when driving with and without winter tyres, even on dry roads.
Vauxhall winter tyres have been specially designed to reduce braking distances, improve handling and overall control. With more natural rubber than summer tyres Vauxhall winter tyres have greater flexibility and grip and low temperatures. Vauxhall MasterFit spokeswoman Belinda Craik states that “winter tyres offer improved grip and stability in cold weather conditions.” Vauxhall winter tyres also benefit from specially designed tread patterns with hundreds of tiny incisions called sipes that help to channel surface water and bite into snow and ice offering the driver increased traction on wet and slippery roads. Having Vauxhall winter tyres fitted can reduce braking distances by up to 10% in rain and 20% in snow.

Below are some examples of winter tyres fitted to popular Vauxhall models, but we advise you check the size of the tyres currently fitted to your vehicle before placing your order. Your tyre size can be found on the sidewall of the existing tyres on your vehicle; however, when looking at winter tyres it is important to remember that the speed rating will be different so you won’t find an exact match. This difference in speed rating between summer and winter tyres will not affect your driving as the maximum speeds far exceed the national speed limit.
