Buying winter tires
In some European countries motorists are required by law to use a dedicated set of winter tires during the colder months.
However even if this is not the case where you live, using tires designed for cold weather can offer performance benefits, with improved traction and control on ice and snow.
Safer driving in low temperatures: When the mercury drops below 7°C the performance of a winter tire actually improves. Sava winter tires feature a special compound containing high levels of silica, giving improved traction, braking and control in winter conditions when compared to summer or all-season tires.
Good grip in ice and snow: Wide tread blocks and additional sipes – small slits in the tread blocks – enhance traction on cold and frozen roads, while also enabling the tire to quickly shed snow. Some winter tires even feature studs for confident grip in the worst of winter conditions.
