WHY DO I NEED TO INSTALL WINTER TIRES?

WHEN SHOULD I INSTALL WINTER TIRES?
It is recommended you change to winter tires before the temperature hits 7°C.
HOW DO WINTER TIRES WORK?
- Blocks – sharper edges and closer spacing allow these Rubber “cells” to get a better grip on snow and ice.
- Tread – a more aggressive tread pattern maximizes contact with the road and increases traction.
- Symbol – the mountain/snowflake mark indicates that the tire meets specific snow traction performance requirements for severe winter conditions.
- Formulations – special rubber compounds enable the tread to remain soft and flexible at low temperatures.
- Grooves – because snow adheres to itself better than to rubber, narrow channels between blocks are used to trap snow in the tread, where it can stick to snow on the road.
- Sipes – abundance of tiny slits makes the tread more flexible and enhances traction on slippery surfaces.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF BMW STAR APPROVED TIRES?
- Tailor Made – BMW Star Approved Tires are individually developed to fit your BMW’s exact chassis components and performance characteristics.
- Tested – Each tire has passed stringent testing with up to 50 different quality criteria.
- Safe – BMW Tires with the star marking are awarded top safety ratings and feature state-of-the-art Run-flat technology.
