Winter Tyres


Keeping you on the road

It is a misconception that regular tyres will only lose grip in snowy or icy conditions. In fact, in heavy rain or at temperatures below 7˚C, your stopping distance can be significantly affected.


Mercedes-Benz Genuine Winter Tyres are designed specifically for your vehicle to make sure you always have a good grip on the road. They can reduce stopping distances and improve safety in adverse conditions thanks to a larger tread depth.


Don’t want them all year round? Your Mercedes-Benz Retailer can store your Winter Tyres* during the warmer months and swap them back over when the time is right.

    First, your wheels undergo extensive corrosion and structural integrity testing before receiving enhanced corrosion protection and temperature controlled painting. We are so confident in the safety and quality of our process that remanufactured wheels also receive a 24 month warranty.

    Enhanced Grip

    Enhanced Grip

     

    Winter tyres grip the surface of the road more effectively and remain softer and more elastic at low temperatures.

    Reduced Stopping Distance

    Reduced Stopping Distance

     

    On cold and wet roads, the stopping distance for winter tyres is around 6% shorter than for summer tyres - and on a snowy road up to 50% shorter.

      • Types of tyres

        There are two main types of tyres that a UK driver might consider using on the road: summer tyres, winter tyres.

        What are summer tyres?

         

        Summer tyres are what the majority of drivers will think of as a “normal” tyre.  They deliver the best driving performance above 7°c on both wet and dry roads.  Their compounds and tread design enable good grip, traction and handling in warmer conditions, whilst providing higher levels of longevity, fuel efficiency and comfort. 

         

        What are winter tyres?

         

        The tread compound in winter tyres contains more natural rubber to minimise the hardening effect on the tyre, which gives them extra grip in cold, wet and icy conditions. Winter tyres are designed to remain flexible in cold temperatures and reduce stopping distances in weather conditions below 7°c.  The winter tyres differ from summer tyres through sophisticated tread patterns that grip snowy roads and icy surfaces more effectively.

         

         

      • How to check the tyre tread?

        How to check the tyre tread?

        The legal minimum tyre tread depth for cars in the UK is 1.6mm. You can use a purpose made tool called a tyre tread depth gauge to measure the depth.

      • How to check tyre pressure?

        How to check tyre pressure?

        Maintaining the correct tyre pressure will help to extend their life and stop extra fuel waste. You can find the recommended tyre pressure for your vehicle printed either in the sill of the driver’s door, the inside of the fuel tank flap or printed in your vehicle manual.

         

        You can check tyre pressure at home with a tyre pressure gauge, or using the air pumps at most petrol stations. It is particularly important to check tyre pressure when your tyres are cold.

         

        New Mercedes-Benz vehicles are fitted with a Tyre Pressure Monitoring System that will alert you on your dashboard if the pressure drops.  

      • What is a run flat tyre?

        What is a run flat tyre?

        Run flat tyres are built with reinforced sidewalls that can temporarily hold up the weight of your vehicle. Once punctured, a normal tyre will collapse and is unsafe to drive on whereas a run flat tyre is designed to keep working for a short while after suffering a puncture. This gives you time to safely reach a stopping point so you can change your tyre or call Roadside Assistance.

      • Where do I find my tyre size?

        Where do I find my tyre size?

        You can find your tyre size printed in the sill of the driver’s door or printed on the tyre already fitted to your vehicle. The size is made up of a series of numbers and letters, broken down as follows: width, profile, rim size, and speed rating.
