Why are winter tyres needed?
Winter tyres tread differently, and are patterned with wider grooves and narrow silts. They are used because it helps to provide a better grip on snow or ice-covered roads at temperatures below - 7 degrees Celsius. The rubber used in standard tyres gets stiffer as temperature drops which initially results in reduced grip on snow-covered roads. On the other hand, winter tyres are made up of different materials that give soft structure giving it a good grip to endure the snow. It has strong traction that helps to move efficiently on ice, snow and slush.
If you are not using winter tyres, you may endure some problems, which threaten your traveling, and turn out to be an obstacle. These include:
- Poor acceleration and inefficient movement
- Less resistance
- Poor grip
- Too much friction causing your tyres to wear and tear. It might lose its elasticity which will lead to cracks and uneven shape
Precautions to change winter tyres
If you’re well aware of changing summer tyres, then switching to winter tyres won’t be a big deal for you. All it requires is to know the way and how it functions. With more practice and more knowledge, tyres will be easier to handle. But there are some precautions which are kept in mind just for safety.
