We look at why run flat winter tyres could make your life a lot easier this year

If you have been thinking about picking up a set of winter tyres in order to make travelling during the harsh winter months a little easier, then we recommend you spend a little bit extra in order to get a set of run flat winter tyres instead of the regular ones. While they're certainly not essential, they will offer you an added layer of safety and security during the winter.

If you're not familiar with what run flat winter tyres are, we can give you a brief overview that might just convince you that they're exactly what you're looking for.

When regular car tyres get a puncture, as soon as the pressure reaches between 5% and 0% the beads will slip off the wheel. This means that handling will become almost impossible, and every inch you drive could be causing serious damage to your wheel's integrity.

This is where run flat winter tyres differ. They are built to maintain their bead connection with the wheel at all times, even if you have a puncture, enabling you to drive to a safe place, or even home if you aren't too far away, in order to safely change your wheel.

In winter, when conditions are not really ideal for being at the side of the road changing your wheel, this run flat winter tyres can really prove to be invaluable. You needn't risk the dangers of being outside your car in icy conditions with poor visibility, and instead can focus on simply getting into a safe place.

No matter what kind of car you have, you should be able to pick up a set of run flat winter tyres that can do the job for you. We recommend you look at some of the great deals available at etyres.co.uk, who are currently selling run flat winter tyres for as much as 40% less than bricks and mortar retailers.
