Car owners should switch to winter tyres before the onset of winter. This way, many safety hazards posed by ice and snow can be avoided. Winter tyres are made using a softer rubber compound that remains flexible even when the temperatures drop below 7 degrees Celsius. Moreover, the unique tread design comes with numerous sipes that ensure superior traction and improved braking performance in challenging winter road conditions.
We will check your tyre’s overall condition, like tread depth (the minimum is 1.6 mm, but experts recommend 4 mm), look for any damage, check the tyre pressure and have a look at the valves.
Vehicle breakdowns in winter are quite common due to engine-related issues. Our trained technicians will check if there’s any leakage in your car’s cooling system. In case the water to antifreeze ratio is not as per the manufacturer’s recommendation, they’ll provide a refill as per the requirement.
Apart from these standard checks, we will also give you some advice about checks you can carry out yourself, things you should have in your car during the cold season, driving- and braking advice, travel tips and much more. If you have any questions, we will be more than happy to answer them.
