Toyota launches winter tyres programme

Toyota has created a winter tyre programme with dealers across the UK able to supply and fit cold weather versions and store customers’ standard set until spring.

Winter tyres are designed specifically to cope with lower temperatures not just snow and ice. Made from a different rubber compound, they give better grip and shorter stopping distances compared to standard tyres, on both wet and dry surfaces, when temperatures fall below 7°C.

Toyota dealerships will supply the tyres and carry out the change-over for owners who can also store their standard set with the centre until the spring. Storage costs will be set by each dealership.

Toyota revealed an example of costs for winter tyres on a Yaris TR;
