Why Winter Tires?
WHAT WINTER TIRES DO FOR YOU
Your Jaguar needs proper tires to operate at a high level. For your Jaguar’s long-term health, it’s not advisable to maintain all-season tires year round. Switching to winter tires during the cold weather months is vital in maintaining the safe driving conditions of your Jaguar. Winter tires are superior over all-season tires in the snow because of their increased level of traction. Its deep, multi-grooved treads are able to easily adapt to the changing snow-covered road conditions.
WINTER TIRE MYTHS
All-season tires don’t provide suitable traction for winter driving. Braking, handling and grip are all improved by using winter tires. Winter tires aren’t just for places with a lot of snow. Winter tires excel beyond all-season tires for any season in temperatures below -7°C. All-wheel drive and anti-lock braking systems don’t make up for a lack of winter tires. These systems often falter without the proper backing of winter tires in these conditions. Your vehicle requires four winter tires to operate safely, two is not acceptable. This can affect handling in your Jaguar.
