Suzuki has launched a winter tyre programme.
Michael-Le Flay, Suzuki aftersales marketing manager, explained: “Many people are unaware of the fact that when temperatures drop below 7°C, the rubber in standard tyres becomes harder and less flexible, which affects braking and cornering performance.
“It doesn’t matter how many electronic aids your car may have, the quality of its tyres is critical. The compound used for winter tyres, and their tread design are tailored to cope with adverse conditions, so that the best levels of car control can be maintained. The result is a significant improvement in braking performance of up to 25 per cent as well as better grip.”
Suzuki has winter tyres now available for all current models, available through its 150-strong dealer network via Suzuki’s European parts distribution centre in Frankfurt, Germany.
The winter tyre programme consists of a ready to fit wheel and tyre set and, taking SX4 as an example, are available from £145 each including VAT.
