Should I Buy Winter Tyres?

Now that winter has well and truly set in, it's more important than ever to ensure that your tyres are in good condition to help keep you moving, and stopping safely, in driving conditions that can sometimes be hazardous.

Here at Boro Tyres Autocentres, we can not only offer you a Free Tyre Safety Check to determine the condition of your existing tyres, we also have a range of winter tyres in stock that can often be fitted the same day should you decide that these are the right choice for you.

Our friendly experts are always on hand either in the depot or on the phone to discuss if winter tyres would be a good choice for you based on your vehicle and the driving that you do.  Please do not hesitate to get in touch and we can discuss your specific requirements. 

 

Winter tyres are specifically designed to offer superior performance,  when compared to regular tyres, in cold and wet weather below 7­oC. Softer rubber compound, combined with unique tread patterns help your vehicle grip the road, deliver vastly improved stopping distances and help with cornering performance, enabling you to turn the car in circumstances where you might otherwise skid straight on. To see winter tyres in action, check out these 2 short films which have produced in conjunction with Dunlop and Michelin.

 

Winter tyres are not as expensive as you may think!  Winter tyres, like all tyres, come in different brands, at different levels of quality and therefore at different prices. For example we can offer from stock a 205/55/16 mid range winter tyre for £44.95 - that is fitted including VAT, a new valve and balancing the wheel. On average you could expect to pay about 10 to 15% more for a winter tyre to its equivalent summer tyre, which represents good value considering the benefits it offers in winter conditions.

 

We have around 300 winter tyres in stock between our depots in Scarborough, Bridlington and Driffield, these can often be fitted same day. If, however we don’t have your size in stock we can often order tyres for same day fitting if we know your requirements before 11am. Ordering tyres could not be easier, either call your local depot or book online.

Finally, don't forget to check out our Free Winter Safety Check offer.
