In this section, we will explain why driving on winter tyres in the summer months is a bad idea. The reasons are quite compelling, and we're sure you'll agree.
There are good reasons why winter tyres are so indispensable in winter. They're made from specialised, flexible rubber compounds and feature unique tread designs to deliver the best grip in snowy and icy road conditions. They function at their best in cold temperatures and winter precipitation, providing confidence and security to drivers in potentially hazardous situations.
But while such tyres are the undisputed champion when it comes to colder climates, those same features put them at a disadvantage if used in warmer temperatures. A dry road without ice or snow doesn't need a tyre with biting edges to provide traction.
