Buy winter tyres early to avoid the rush

With the last two winters being quite harsh drivers who are thinking of fitting winter tyres are being urged by the IAM to get them early

Winter tyres have a different tread pattern and use a specialist rubber compound that operates better at lower temperatures. They do cost however, between £400 and £500 pounds. The alternatives are to not make the journey at all if conditions are harsh or fir snow socks or chains on the drive wheels to aid traction.
