Cold-weather tyres - £varies

Many motorists assume cold weather or winter tyres are only worth having in snow, but they’re actually designed for all winter weather, wet or dry. They’re made of a softer compound which grips the road better in temperatures below seven degrees Celsius, where normal tyres are hard and offer less traction.

Winter tyres also have little grooves called sipes, which improve traction on snow. For rural motorists winter tyres make a serious difference to safety – so much so that they’re legally required in some European countries with harsher climates. Ordering can take some time, so speak to a tyre fitter sooner rather than later.
