Why should we use winter tires?
It is a must to use “winter tires” to drive safely under tough road conditions in winter months. Winter tires produced by Petlas to ensure life and property safety, stand out with their “special tread design”. The block structure with tiny channels of the tread design of winter tires, offers firmer grip on snowy road surface and also ensures superior drive and braking capabilities. And the peripheral and lateral channels in between the blocks, effectively discharges the snow between the tire and the ground, ensuring maximum grip on snowy surface. Rubber content of Petlas’s winter tires as well improve driving safety. The surface of winter tires touching the ground does not harden at low temperatures thanks to the special silica mixture used. This way the tire provides more grip and shorter breaking distances. The high tread depth of winter tires and optimized tread width causes the tire to go deeper into the muddy surface compared to standard tires thus maintaining contact with ground.
