Winter Tyres

Every car owner in the UK knows how inconvenient it is to drive around when it’s snowing. Roads become slippery and dangerous; your car’s tyres struggle to grip the tarmac, and the slightest of slope comes with a risk of sliding back down. However, this does not have to be the case. Snow car tyres are purpose-built tyres to tackle that snowy road, and with their softer rubber compound and much more profound grip pattern, they can bite down through snow and provide you with the traction you need.

At HG Motors Harrogate, you will find a wide range of winter tyres available at an affordable price for you to choose from. We offer tyres from all famous manufacturers like Pirelli, Goodyear, Bridgestone, and our entire stock comes with their respective EU tyre label attached.

Winter tyres – what makes them unique?

Experts recommend using snow car tyres whenever the temperature drops below 7°C. It is not mandated by law, however, to ensure that you and your loved ones stay safe during winter, you must use the appropriate weather tyres. They offer several advantages like –

  • Winter tyres are different in many ways. The rubber that is used to make these tyres are a lot softer than others, keeping them pliable even at freezing temperatures. It helps acquire maximum surface area against the road, creating a right amount of traction for your car.
  • When you visit our garage to buy winter tyres in Harrogate, you will notice that the tread pattern on these tyres is considerably different. Winter tyres come with larger and deeper grooves, with sipes running from the middle of the tyres to its sidewalls. These grooves create more surface area whereas the sipes force water (created after ice on the road melts from friction against tyres) out from under the tyres.
  • Multiple companies sell snow car tyres that are compatible with snow chains to provide you with some extra resistance.
