Winter Tyres First 4 x 4 Second

The Scandinavians know a thing or two about driving in snowy, cold weather conditions and have a saying: ‘winter tyres first, four wheel drive second.’ In other words, if you want to get around places in the snow, a two-wheel-drive car fitted with winter tyres is better than a four-wheel-drive car on ordinary road tyres. That’s hard to believe until you’ve driven on winter tyres.

Winter tyres transform the ability of front and rear wheel drive vehicles, offering grip levels on snow and in the cold that far exceed those of any car with ordinary road tyres, even a 4×4. Winter tyres make driving on snow-covered roads a breeze and give drivers, at all levels of experience, a massive confidence boost in the stability of their cars in winter driving conditions.
