It’s a good idea to keep a range of tools and tyre changing equipment in your car so that you’re well prepared in case you have to repair or replace your tyre by the side of the road.
If you drive relatively few miles every year, you might find that your tread depth remains fairly intact for several years.
For many people, particularly those living in countries with extreme weather, it is mandatory to have two sets of tyres – one for summer and one for winter.
Some countries insist that you swap from summer to winter tyres as the cold weather approaches. But what are winter tyres?
There are three ways you can tell a winter tyre from a summer tyre by sight: winter tyre treads are deeper, they have a different tread pattern and they have additional markings on their side walls.

You may have heard terms like ‘symmetrical’ and ‘directional’ tread patterns. But what do they actually mean?

Uniroyal tyres are built to last. Assuming they’re not damaged, you should be able to enjoy tens of thousands of kilometres of happy, safe driving.
Passenger car tyres are products of complex engineering.
Tyre speed ratings tell you the maximum speed that particular tyre is legally approved for.
Traction is defined as “the ability of a wheel or tyre to hold the ground without sliding”. This is particularly important when surfaces are slippery, like when driving on snow.
