Winter tyres can vastly increase the performance and safety of your Lexus during adverse weather conditions. Durable, responsive and reliable, they are designed for driving in winter conditions, including snow and ice. Winter tyres are fitted as a complete set of four, and have the potential to outlive any type of basic road tyre.
The chemical composition of winter tyres – natural rubber and enhanced silica – means that these tyres perform very well in cold conditions. The unique design means that low temperatures cannot harden the rubber, as with normal road tyres, which sustains the effectiveness of each tyre even during extremely adverse conditions.
Winter tyres are approved by the British Tyre Manufacturers’ Association, and have been proven to dramatically lessen braking distances in temperatures of seven degrees or below. Winter tyres bring the braking distance of a car travelling at 20mph down to just 11 metres on icy roads, while the type also performs well in wet conditions.
