Is it okay to have mix Winter Tyres with other tyres?
Mixing seasonal tyres is a really bad idea - even worse in winter. Read on for our brief assessment of one of our most common winter queries.
Getting straight to the point - Fitting just 2 Winter tyres rather than 4 Winter tyres creates a huge imbalance in the normal grip of your car. In wintery conditions, this will very likely result in spinning out and causing a serious accident.
At temperatures below 7°C, winter tyres offer improved grip and shorter braking distances - but thats if you have fitted 4 of the same Winter tyres to your car or van. Otherwise the imbalance caused by fitting just 2 out of 4 winter tyres could have the opposite effect and make your tyres incredibly dangerous.
Always have 4 of the same tyre type fitted and never 2, regardless of the vehicle you are driving.
