Why install winter tires?
We tend to want to keep our summer tyres when it snows little or not at all in his region. This is a big mistake in terms of safety! They are more effective on wet pavement, cold, snowy or icy :
- the adhesion is better because the rubber does not harden with cold weather
- braking distances are reduced
- there is less risk of aquaplaning
