We all know winter is a time to put on sensible clothes and boots... but it’s just as important to tread carefully in our cars by putting on appropriate tyres.
Now, being geared up for all that snow, rain and ice is just a car ride away at Pulman’s aptly named Hotel4Tyres.
And there’s no need to stress about keeping your ordinary tyres in tip top condition in a damp garage – Hotel4Tyres will take care of them for you.
Indeed, as part of its first-class service Hotel4Tyres will:
- Store and re-fit summer tyresWhen the winter tyres are fitted, staff also fully check and store your summer tyres. After the winter period, they then re-fit your summer tyres.
- Store used winter tyresWhen the summer tyres are re-fitted, as part of the package, Hotel4Tyres will check and store your used winter tyres
And with weather preparing to do its worst, here are some of the reasons why this service is a must:
For a start, the temperature is crucial to the performance of your tyres. When the temperature drops below 7 degrees standard tyres give less grip, compromising the performance of your vehicle.
Unlike normal tyres, winter tyres are made with a higher natural rubber content that keeps tyres soft and flexible even in colder weather conditions.
They have a different tread pattern which maintains their highly effective contact with the road for greater traction.
Winter tyres significantly improve grip and reduce stopping distances in temperatures below 7 degrees - unlike standard tyres they don’t harden.
This enables them to maintain better traction in low temperatures as well as in the wet and snow, slush and ice, reducing the risk of aquaplaning and improving braking distance.
“It’s so important to choose winter tyres,” said Danny Martin, service manager at Pulman ŠKODA.
“It gives safer driving in winter conditions; more control in the rain, snow, and ice and improved grip to the road enabling safer braking distances.”
Indeed Pulman Group, a family-run retailer which represents Volkswagen, SEAT and ŠKODA, is justifiably proud of its across the board premium service.
“We are proud of our heritage, we have grown over the years and boast four locations across the North East and recently have just opened a purpose-built ŠKODA site in Belmont, Durham,” said Mr Martin.
“The Pulman promise is to deliver a fantastic customer experience every time.
“Whether you’re searching for a new or used car, servicing your car or inquiring about a car in any way, rest assured you will receive a fantastic customer experience.”
