When it comes to winter tyres, Kwik Fit are always on hand to provide you with expert advice and suggestions as to which tyre is right for your needs. Although it is not mandatory to have winter tyres on your vehicle for the colder months, it is certainly advisable as they offer stopping distances of up to eleven metres quicker than summer tyres in temperatures below seven degrees centigrade, depending on driving conditions at the time.

Kwik Fit recommend that all drivers make the change to winter tyres as soon as the weather starts to drop below seven degrees centigrade, so usually around mid to late October. They also suggest that you switch back to your summer tyres in March of each year.

The process of switching between the tyres, they say, will ensure that you get even longer out of both sets than you would using a single set of four throughout the year.
