WHEN OUTSIDE TEMPERATURES DROP BELOW 7°C, MINI WINTER TYRES PROVIDE HIGHER LEVELS OF SAFETY AND CONSIDERABLY SHORTER STOPPING DISTANCES.
You won't be surprised to hear that driving in winter is a lot more dicey than any other time of year. The stats actually say you're twice as likely to have an accident with all that ice, snow and rain around†. The best way to enjoy a safe journey from autumn through to spring is by using tyres that have been specially developed to cope with the very worst that Jack Frost can throw at you.
With average British winter temperatures dipping below 7°C^, you need to get your skates on now and switch to winter tyres with more natural rubber in their compound to give extra grip at those lower temperatures, as shown in the diagram.
Being safe doesn't mean having to look safe, and the winter wheel and tyre packages come in steel or alloy rim designs to compliment the sharp looks of your MINI. A set of winter wheels and tyres with their special rubber compound and grooves is available from £560 RRP per set**, and is by far the safer option in these colder months. To make life easier for you, we'll even store your standard wheels and tyres for just £30 until it's time to switch them back again in spring.
AS THE SEASONS CHANGE, SWITCH TO MINI TYRES FOR A SAFER WINTER DRIVE.
