Skoda Winter Tyres


Like most car makers, Skoda too is getting ready for the coming winter by offering its customers a set of purpose-built winter tyres for £248.00

The softer compound and tread design of winter tyres gives significantly better grip and braking performance than regular tyres in slippery conditions and temperatures below 7C. Despite the common misconception that winter tyres are only for use in snow and ice, drivers can benefit from using winter tyres in all conditions, wet or dry. Last year alone saw almost five months of the year when winter tyres would have been the safer choice for UK motorists.

Skoda is also offering customers a complete Winter Check to ensure their car is ready for the forthcoming season. It’s actually touching how worry Skoda is about its customers safety!

Skoda press release:

The key benefits of winter tyres are:

  • Shorter breaking distances – The braking distance of a winter tyre in cold conditions is up to 10% shorter than a regular tyre, around two vehicle lengths.
  • Resistance to aquaplaning – The winter tyre tread pattern is designed to displace water and slush from under the tyre, reducing aquaplaning.
  • Increased grip – Winter tyres have a softer compound with a high natural rubber content to increase grip in cold conditions.

The Winter Check is on offer to ŠKODA customers for just £19.99 and includes a full vehicle health check with specific focus on the key vehicle systems that are critical for safe winter driving.

ŠKODA recommends the following seven important checks to prepare your ŠKODA for winter – all carried out by highly-trained technicians as part of a Winter Check.

  1. Lights– Are they aligned correctly? Perfectly aligned lights enable drivers to have the best possible visibility, critically important during winter’s dark days and nights.
  2. Wiper blades – Severe weather puts increased demands on wiper blades, so it’s crucial to make sure they’re in good condition before winter begins.
  3. Windscreen washer fluid – ŠKODA technicians will check it is topped up with the correct antifreeze screen wash fluid.
  4. Brakes– Fast, responsive brakes are essential in winter, so the pads, discs and brake fluid are checked allowing drivers to brake more effectively.
  5. Tyres– The condition of the tyres is checked, plus customers will be given additional advice about choosing winter tyres.
  6. Battery– Winter puts extra strain on batteries, so technicians will check they’re in good working order before cold weather hits.
  7. Air-con– By ensuring the air-con is in good shape, drivers need not worry about a winter of condensation.
