The components of winter tyres are specially constructed for driving on winter roads.

Thanks to the high proportion of natural rubber, the contact surface mix remains soft, even at low temperatures. The tread ensures a strong grip on wintry roads. It drains water, allowing better lateral traction, and snow can press into the wide grooves. The profile blades enable a good grip on icy and snowy surfaces. When setting off, the fine incisions result in a large number of grip edges, which lock into the ground. Since snow sticks best to more snow, the blades are able to pick it up off the road surface.
