Technical Questions

When do you need Winter Tires?


As winter approaches, drivers should start planning for whatever the weather may throw at them. If you need convincing, just listen to the weather forecasters. They predict that there will be a good mix of snow, ice, rain and dry spells. To cope with this mix of different road conditions, winter tires are strongly recommended.

So, when winter is approaching and the thermometer reaches 7 °C – it’s time to give your summer tires a rest. The roads will normally be cold, wet and slippery and winter tires offer much better grip under these conditions than summer tires. For your own safety, it’s a good idea to change to winter tires from Continental before the start of the season.
