When cold weather descends, winter tyres are the most durable and robust option for your Bentley’s wheels. These tyres are designed specifically for winter driving, tackling snow and ice with confidence. They work far more effectively at lower outside temperatures and, when fitted and used correctly as a complete winter set, can last just as long as a set of standard tyres.
Bentley winter tyres are constructed with colder conditions in mind. They’re created using enhanced silica and more natural rubber that you’ll find in standard tyres; this prevents the rubber from hardening when temperatures plummet, which in turn increases the effectiveness of the tyres.
At temperatures of seven degrees or lower, winter tyres can help your Bentley to stop 11 metres sooner when travelling on an icy road at 20mph. They can also reduce your wet braking distance from 60mph by the equivalent of a whole car’s length. It’s been confirmed that winter tyres have a positive impact on the performance of your car in cold weather, as each of these stopping distances has been verified by the British Tyre Manufacturers’ Association.
