Winter tyres, more accurately called “cold weather” tyres;
Feature a snowflake symbol on the side, and are made from a softer compound.
That means they’re still soft enough to provide the grip you need in temperatures below 7oC.
They also have a different tread pattern, with fine grooves or “sipes” cut into each tread block that bite into the snow better.
Not only do winter tyres reduce stopping distances in snow and ice, but also in wet weather below 7oC.
What’s more, they help with cornering performance, enabling you to turn the car in circumstances where you might otherwise skid straight on.

What our customers think
“Very Good Garage, Nice people, and efficient”
“I have used this garage several times and they are always friendly, polite, helpful and the service is great. They have managed to fit my car in last minute, despite being extremely busy ...they are always very accommodating. I recommended the garage to my mum who then had her car serviced here and was equally impressed. I wouldn't consider going to any other garage....”
“I had not used Village Car Care before for my MOT and general servicing. I live about a mile away so I thought I would give them a try. What a pleasant surprise! My MOT was carried out at exactly the time I booked and all was explained in detail following. Based on that experience, I decided to have two new tyres fitted. Again, the service was excellent, the tyres fitted the next day. I also had a wheel alignment done at the same time. My car came back better that ever. The ride, stability and tracking were spot on! It felt like a new car! So far so good, so I booked in for an interim service. Again, my car was taken in exactly at the time booked and all issues were fully explained in a friendly and sympathetic way. I highly recommend Village Car Care. They are now my 'go to' garage.”
