Hope you noticed that I used the word safety in the post title. Of course, as the owner of Pellon Tyres in Halifax Yorkshire, I genuinely believe in what I say. Over the years I have preached to my customers the benefits of fitting winter tyres to their cars.

I must admit though that things are getting better, thanks to great articles like this. Modern cars are getting faster and have excellent braking systems. They are however heavy vehicles, which can cause them to skid and lose grip in wet and snowy weather.
