Did you know that a tyre’s grip can be less effective when the temperature drops below 7°C?
The colder weather causes the rubber to harden, making them more prone to skidding on slippery surfaces like ice.
They are developed specifically for winter conditions to ensure a safer driving experience.
The softer compound rubber and revised tread pattern provide a substantial increase in levels of grip when driving on damp, icy or snow covered roads when compared to standard road tyres.
It’s a good idea to switch to winter tyres to make sure you continue to enjoy peak performance and safety from your Volvo all season.

Winter Tyres vs Standard Tyres in Volvo's Celebrity Snowdome Showdown
Volvo Cars UK invited ‘Made In Chelsea’ star and Volvo V40 driver Louise Thompson to demonstrate the effectiveness of winter tyres for driving in snow.
The results were enough to dispel any remaining doubts about the advantages of fitting winter tyres. During the test, Louise struggled to hit the 5 meter mark on standard rubber but comfortably cruised past the 100 meter marker and continued on towards the summit as soon as she switched into the car fitted with winter tyres.
Take a look at the video to see the difference winter tyres make.
