As a motorist it is important to note that cold weather puts extra strain on your tyres. When temperatures drop below freezing point tyres have to work harder so it is important drivers make sure they are well maintained and in good condition.
Protyre have given advice to motorists saying that the misconception that tyre pressure should be reduced when driving in snow was both dangerous and illegal. It went on to note that drivers should check their vehicle’s handbook in order to find the optimum tyre pressure for their particular car. When weather conditions are bad motorists should avoid driving when possible and be aware of upcoming weather conditions by checking weather reports before journeys.
